Rays activate Scott from DL
The Tampa Bay Rays have activated designated hitter Luke Scott
from the 15-day disabled list and optioned infielder Sean Rodriguez
to Triple-A Durham.
The moves were announced before the Rays played Kansas City on
Scott missed 28 games because of a strained right oblique. He
was in Tuesday’s lineup as the DH.
Also, Evan Longoria was listed as the starting third baseman
Tuesday. It is the first time that Longoria will have played
defense since April 30 when he partially tore his left hamstring
sliding into second base.
Longoria, activated from the 60-day disabled list on Aug. 7, was
the DH in 12 games since his return.
