Matt Joyce Back From DL For Rays

Matt Joyce NewsThe offensively challenged Tampa Bay Rays get some help tonight against the Cleveland Indians in the form of outfielder Matt Joyce returning from the DL. Joyce has been on the DL for a month with an oblique injury.

Joyce played two rehab assignment games with the Single-A team in Port Charlotte, where he went 2-8 with a double. He is scheduled to hit fourth in tonight’s lineup. In a corresponding move, Will Rhymes was optioned to Triple-A Durham, to make room for Joyce.

There was some speculation about who would be sent out to make room for Joyce including Hideki Matsui. Rhymes had hit .233 with one home run 45 games.

The Rays are still without Evan Longoria, although J.B. Long  tweeted Longoria may join the team on the upcoming road trip, so team officials could monitor his progress work closely.

Rays manager Joe Madden address the issue this afternoon as reported by Rays beat writer Roger Mooney
