BOSTON (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have recalled right-hander Andy Sonnanstine from Class-A Hudson Valley.

The move was made before Monday night's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Sonnanstine was optioned to the minors Aug. 31 to open a roster spot for Brad Hawpe, who was signed to a minor league contract on Aug. 27 after he was released by Colorado a day earlier.

Sonnanstine was 3-1 with a 4.29 ERA is 38 games with Tampa Bay before he was sent down.
