Brad Boxberger (abdomen) is on track to begin a minor league rehab assignment next Thursday.
He'll work a pair of simulated appearances first -- one Friday and one Monday. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times says Boxberger is probably going to be asked to make six minor league appearances before the Rays consider activating him from the disabled list. He's been out all season after undergoing core muscle surgery in mid-March. Alex Colome is serving as Tampa Bay's fill-in closer.
Matt Moore could be skipped on his next turn through the Rays' rotation.
Moore got pounded for seven runs on eight hits over just 4 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Dodgers and the Rays face a lefty-mashing team this weekend in the Angels. It might be a good time to get the 26-year-old southpaw a breather. Matt Andriese or Erasmo Ramirez could fill in versus Anaheim.
Billy Hamilton (thumb) served as a defensive replacement on Wednesday against the Giants.
Hamilton took over center field from Tyler Holt in the top of the ninth inning after being held out for the first eight innings due to lingering discomfort in his left thumb. It's a pretty strong indication that his full return is close. Hamilton, 25, is batting just .215/.271/.354 with five stolen bases in 24 games this season.
Mike Moustakas (thumb) went 0-for-3 in his return to the Royals' starting lineup Wednesday.
Moustakas had been out of the Kansas City lineup for a couple days due to a bruised thumb, though he did smack a game-tying, pinch-hit, two-run single on Tuesday night. The third baseman is clearly just fine.
Jean Segura (hip) had a pinch-hit single Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' loss to the Marlins.
Segura was out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup because of a hip issue. Clearly it's pretty minor. The rejuvenated middle infielder is batting .339/.368/.527 with four homers and 15 RBI in 26 games this season.
