Lueke demoted back to Triple-A Durham
BOSTON -- Rays reliever Josh Lueke was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday afternoon.

The 27-year-old right-hander had made just one appearance before pitching in the eighth inning of the Rays' 12-2 loss to the Red Sox on Friday, when he allowed four earned runs on six hits and a walk.

Lueke was recalled from Durham on April 6 to replace injured closer Kyle Farnsworth in Tampa Bay bullpen.

The Rays will make a corresponding move on Saturday.
