Damon out of Rays' lineup vs. ChiSox
Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Johnny Damon was out of Monday night's lineup against the Chicago White Sox because of an injured left hand.
Damon left Sunday's 4-2 loss to Minnesota with a bruise on the tip of his left ring finger. He hurt himself while trying to bunt in the third inning.
Damon had a splint on the finger Monday, and hopes to be able to grip a bat in the next day or two. He hasn't ruled out playing later this week.
