Rollins has throwback nickname

Rays manager Joe Maddon, talking about bullpen possibilities, revealed a nickname he uses for former Biscuits pitcher Heath Rollins. We're talking a wayback, Hot Tub Time Machine nickname here -- "Tree" Rollins.

Also, first baseman Dan Johnson has been dropped from major-league camp and has accepted a minor-league assignment. That's one Durham roster spot locked up. "He knows how much we like him," Maddon said. "We like having him with us and I see him being very helpful at some point in the season."

Time to head to Fort Myers for the Triple-A and Double-A games.
