CBSSports.com wire reports

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays recalled catcher Robinson Chirinos and pitchers Alex Cobb and Alex Torres from Triple-A Durham before Monday night's game against the New York Yankees.

To make room on the roster, reliever Adam Russell was designated for assignment and catcher Jose Lobaton and reliever Juan Cruz were placed on the 15-day disabled list. Lobaton has a left knee sprain and Cruz has a right groin strain.

Cobb was scheduled to make his sixth major league start Monday night against New York's A.J. Burnett. His promotion was announced Saturday, but wasn't made official until a few hours before the game.

Russell was 1-2 with a 3.03 ERA in 36 appearances with the Rays this season.
