Wil Myers (left wrist tendinitis) has not resumed swinging.
Myers is eligible to come off the disabled list Tuesday but manager Bud Black said it's "highly unlikely" the team will activate him that quickly. Will Venable has played close to every day with Myers out of the lineup. Melvin Upton, who has been out all year with a foot injury, might make it back before Myers.
Eric Aybar went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.
Aybar's double in the eighth inning was his seventh of the season. A hot May has helped boost Aybar's numbers and he's now hitting .274/.320/.335 with a homer, 14 RBI and 19 runs scored.
Mike Napoli hit two long homers and finished 2-for-3 with three RBI and a walk in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Angels.
Napoli absolutely owned Angels starter C.J. Wilson on Saturday, smacking a laser of a solo homer in the second inning, then uncorking a two-run moonshot in the sixth that completely cleared the Green Monster. The Red Sox are dying for some kind of offensive production and it would be a welcome sign if Napoli could find a groove. He's hitting a disappointing .193/.292/.385 with seven homers, 16 RBI and 17 runs scored over 135 at-bats.
Steven Wright had a great start against the Angels on Saturday, allowing just two runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings.
Wright's making the most of the Red Sox injury issues, as there are opportunities for him to start as long as Justin Masterson (shoulder) is on the disabled list. The Angels struck early, with a two-run double by Cole Kalhoun in the first inning, but Wright didn't allow another run the rest of the way. He struck out two and walked one in the contest. Through 22 innings this season, Wright has allowed 10 runs and holds an 11/8 K/BB ratio. There's nothing particularly appetizing about him as a fantasy prospect, but he could work as a streaming option in the right match-up, assuming future starts.
C.J. Wilson had an up-and-down start in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits over six innings.
The start would have looked better if Mike Napoli had taken the day off, as Napoli took Wilson deep for a pair of homers to account for three of the Red Sox four runs off the southpaw. The other run came home on an RBI single by Mookie Betts. During his six innings on the mound, Wilson struck out six and walked three while allowing seven hits. Despite the less-than-stellar outing, he still holds a 3.36 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 42/16 K/BB ratio over 59 innings. Thankfully for Wilson, he won't have to face Napoli when he takes on the Tigers in his next start.
Matt Carpenter went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in a rain-shortened loss to the Royals on Saturday.
Carpenter lofted his run-scoring single to shallow center in the fifth inning. It would be the last run either team scored before the rains began to fall. Despite hitting .323/.385/.581 with seven homers and 25 RBI, it appears that not even Carpenter can control the weather as of yet. Something to work on in the off-season.
Alex Gordon went 1-for-1 with a two-run homer off of John Lackey in Saturday's rain-shortened win over the Cardinals.
Gordon blasted his homer off of Lackey in the second inning. It was his fifth of the season and boosted his RBI total to 23. Gordon's slashing .271/.380/.459 this season. These numbers are very much in line with what he's done over the last four years.
The Rays will recall reliever Preston Guilmet from Triple-A Durham on Sunday.
The Rays probably would have preferred to call up Matt Andriese or Andrew Bellatti, but neither one is eligible because they were sent down less than 10 days ago. Guilmet will fill the roster spot left by Enny Romero, who was optioned to Durham on Saturday. The 27-year-old has posted a 2.04 ERA across 17 2/3 innings in Triple-A this season.
