Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Rays recalled right-hander Jeremy Hellickson from the minors, in order to take the mound Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.

Hellickson had been optioned to Double-A Montgomery on July 13, in order to give him more time to rehab from offseason elbow surgery which had limited him to one start this year.

The 27-year-old had gone 12-10 with a 5.17 earned run average in 31 starts last season.

To make room on the roster, the club designated pitcher Juan Carlos Oviedo for assignment. The pitcher formerly known as Leo Nunez went 3-3 with a 3.69 ERA in 32 appearances for Tampa in 2014.
