After having shoulder surgery in October 2006, he was released by the team on November 22. He has then made a comeback with the D-Rays, being put on the 60 day DL. His season has compiled of two rehab starts with the Hudson Valley Renegades, Tampa's single A short season affiliate. His rehab starts were against the Staten Island Yankees, the New York Yankees affiliate, and the Brooklyn Cyclones, the New York Mets affiliate. He has compiled a 1-1 record giving up three runs in the two rehab starts.[1]
