Riefenhauser, Yates on Rays' 40-man roster

Two former Biscuits have been added to Tampa Bay's 40-man roster, which shields them from next month's Rule 5 draft.

Left-hander C.J. Riefenhauser and right-hander Kirby Yates, plus infielder Vince Belnome and right-handed pitcher Jesse Hahn went on the 40-man.

Today was the deadline for teams to finalize their 40-man rosters for the Rule 5.

The Rays have protected 37 players.

They also re-signed pitchers Victor Mateo, Mark Lowe and Sam Runion to minor league deals and invited them to major league spring training. Mateo threw a no-hitter this year for Montgomery.

Catcher Mayo Acosta and pitchers Michael Colla, Eduar Quiñonez and Albert Suarez signed minor league contracts. Acosta, Colla and Suarez were Biscuits this year.
