From Topkin:

BOSTON--More bad news for the Rays as closer Al Reyes, who has been the only dependable member of their bullpen, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a "slightly strained" rotator cuff in his right shoulder and will be out at least until at least July 18.

"It seems it will only be the minimum amount of time,'' manager Joe Maddon said.

Reyes, coming back from his second Tommy John surgery, has 17 saves but has not been as sharp recently. LHP Jon Switzer was called up to replace him (rather than Chad Orvella or Seth McClung), but Gary Glover is likely to get the first shot at closing.

Hopefully Switzer is used correctly (note to Joe: ONLY VERSUS LEFTIES) and we see Fossum get DFA'd in short time...

Oh and happy fourth.
