Rays activate SS Escobar from DL; 2013 AL Rookie of the Year Myers has cast on wrist removed

  • Print

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Tampa Bay Rays activated shortstop Yunel Escobar from the disabled list and placed reliever Jake McGee on the paternity list on Friday.

Then, Rays centre fielder Desmond Jennings left Friday night's game against Toronto after the second inning because of a bruised left knee. X-rays were negative.

Escobar missed 15 games due to right shoulder soreness. McGee's wife gave birth to a daughter on Thursday.

Also, Wil Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, had a cast removed from his right wrist. Myers, who could return in mid-August, said tests on Friday showed the broken bone has healed. He has missed 40 games.

Infielder Jerry Sands will undergo season-ending surgery on a strained left wrist tendon. A date for the procedure hasn't been set, and Sands won't be able to swing a bat for three to four months.

Outfielder David DeJesus, out since mid-June because of a broken left hand, is expected back by early August.
