 The parent Tampa Bay Rays on Friday optioned infielder Cole Figueroa to the Durham Bulls.

To make room on the roster, Robby Price was sent from the Bulls to extended spring training.

Figueroa’s short stay with the Rays was memorable. His pinch-hit, run-scoring double in the bottom of the ninth inning on Friday, May 23, gave the Rays a 1-0 walk-off victory over the Boston Red Sox.
