• Devil Rays general manager Chuck LaMar said righthander Jeff Niemann, who has battled shoulder problems all season, will not be included in September callups when the rosters expand. "He's healthy," LaMar told the St. Petersburg Times. "We're going to build him up to five innings, and my gut feeling is that will be it for him." Since being called up to Double-A Montgomery, Niemann is 0-1, 3.38 in eight innings. LaMar said no decisions have been made on calling up Triple-A Durham shortstop B.J. Upton or outfielder Delmon Young, though Young will likely finish the season with the Bulls to keep his major league service clock from ticking.
