The Rays ended up in a blockbuster four-player trade with Milwaukee as shortstop Willy Adames and right-hander Trevor Richards went to the Brewers while relievers J.P. Feyereisen and Drew Rasmussen head to Tampa Bay, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

But Tampa Bay decided to skip over their top prospect and call up Walls for Saturday's game, according to's Adam Berry

Adames, 25, had a .197 batting average with five homers and 15 RBIs in his fourth with Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, Richards has a 4.50 ERA with a single save and 16 strikeouts this season.
