Tampa Bay try: Rays expand roles for 2-way players in minors

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays, who pioneered the pitching strategy of using relievers as openers, are trying another experiment on the mound in the minors - they're stacking two-way players to start games.

The focus Saturday night at Triple-A Durham was on two-way prospect Brendan McKay pitching against rehabbing New York Yankees sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

McKay entered in the second inning. He followed Jake Cronenworth, an infielder who's also getting regular work as a pitcher.
