ST. PETERSBURG -- The Rays outrighted left-hander Jeff Beliveau and infielder Jake Elmore on Friday, allowing each to become free agents.

The move allowed the Rays to fill out their 40-man roster by reinstating right-handers Grayson Garvin, Alex Cobb and Burch Smith from the 60-day disabled list. The trio of pitchers missed the entire 2015 season due to injury.

The Rays' 40-man roster is now full. Other changes can be expected in advance of the Nov. 20 deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 Draft, which is held during the Winter Meetings.

The Rays did not extend qualifying offers to any of their three free agents, John Jaso, Grady Sizemore and Asdrubal Cabrera.
