Wednesday Widgets

-- Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports reports a rumor we passed on a bit back and still has some legs: The Bucs are interested in bringing back Octavio Dotel as a closer, along with Toronto and Tampa Bay.

-- The Bucs have invited a dozen non-roster players to camp so far: Dusty Brown, Jeff Clement, Josh Fields, Sean Gallagher, Andy Marte, Fernando Nieve, Rudy Owens, Justin Thomas, Cesar Valdez, Donnie Veal, Justin Wilson, and Tyler Yates.

-- OK, the Bucs finally cleared up the 40-man roster mess by DFA'ing RHP Joe Martinez, who came with John Bowker from the Giants. He may get through waivers. Martinez pitches ala Jeff Karstens and most teams already have a couple of those guys on hand. We assume the delay in making the move was because someone they signed got into the MLB pipeline late.
