ANAHEIM -- After Saturday night's 4-2 Rays win over the Angels, Tampa Bay designated Jhan Marinez for assignment so that right-hander Matt Andriese could be recalled to start Sunday's series finale against the Angels.

"Just talked to him," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "He actually made it a pretty difficult decision for us, the fact that in a limited time he came up and did some good things. For his sake, if he gets picked up, great [for him]. If not, he's a guy we'd love to get back."
