C.J. Riefenhauser Ready To Begin His Major League Career

After last nights 11-5 victory over the New York Yankees the Tampa Bay Rays sent Brad Boxberger [1] back to their Triple-A affiliate Durham Bulls and called up native New Yorker C.J. Riefenhauser [2].

Riefenhauser was a 20th round draft pick by the Rays in 2010 and was just added to the clubs 40-man roster this past offseason.

“I found out at 12 0’clock last night and at first I though he [Bulls Manager Charlie Montoya] was kidding with me,” Riefenhasuer said. “I didn’t know who it really was it was him and his wife yelling in the phone like ‘congratulations!!!’ and I was like ‘who is this?
‘”


When asked about how it might feel to enter a game, he said, “I don’t even want to start thinking about it now because then I won’t be able to stop shaking. I’m already nervous as it is.”
