Rhame was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Rhame was likely unavailable after pitching consecutive days, so he'll head back to the minors in exchange for a fresh bullpen arm (Buddy Baumann). The 25-year-old picked allowed three runs on four hits and a walk across 1.1 innings during Tuesday's loss to the Braves, raising his ERA to 6.35 across 11.1 innings. He'll continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth.
