The Rays have called up right-hander Drew Rasmussen, Tampa Bay announced. The moves comes as the second part of Friday’s optioning of infielder Mike Brosseau to Triple-A.

Rasmussen was one of the two arms acquired from the Brewers as part of the Willy Adames trade. Since joining Tampa’s system, Rasmussen posted 11 1/3 scoreless innings over eight outings in Triple-A. The 25-year-old put up a 4.24 ERA/3.88 FIP over 17 innings with the Brewers prior to the deal.

Brosseau has moved up and down between Triple-A and the majors all season. The 27-year-old has batted just .182/.264/.326 in 148 plate appearances in the bigs. He has not yet appeared in a game at Triple-A.
