Rays Make Rotation Decision, Send Wade Davis To Bullpen

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays have made it official, leaving Jeff Niemann in the rotation while sending Wade Davis to the bullpen. It's not a surprising move considering the skill sets of the two righties. Niemann appears to be a better immediate fit in the rotation, while amongst the two Davis' stuff profiles better to a bullpen role.

This certainly isn't a permanent solution, as it's still likely one starting pitcher gets traded before season's end.
