Tampa Bay Rays Roster Report 2009-05-12


Tampa Bay Rays Roster Report 2009-05-12
--OF Gabe Kapler has not driven in a run in 45 at-bats (and is 1-for-10 with runners in scoring position). There is only one player in the majors who has more at-bats without an RBI, White Sox INF Brent Lillibridge (55).

--C Dioner Navarro's .097 average (3-for-31) with runners in scoring position is the lowest among all A.L. qualifiers.

--LF Carl Crawford goes into play Tuesday having been successful in his last 24 stolen base attempts (22 this season, two last season), matching Pittsburgh's Nate McLouth for the longest active streak in the majors.

--1B Carlos Pena is expected back in the lineup Tuesday after getting Sunday night off, save for a ninth-inning pinch-hit appearance. Manager Joe Maddon wanted to rest him and he had bad numbers against Boston starter Josh Beckett.

MEDICAL WATCH:

C Shawn Riggans (right shoulder tendinitis) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 10. He began a rehab assignment with Class AA Montgomery on May 5.

RHP Chad Bradford (right elbow surgery in February 2009) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He is scheduled to start a rehab assignment in early May, aiming for a late-May return to the Rays.

RHP Jason Isringhausen (right elbow surgery in September 2008) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 31. He began a rehab assignment with Class AA Montgomery on April 20. He was scratched from his first scheduled appearance for Class AAA Durham on April 30 due to a mild abdominal strain.

OF Fernando Perez (dislocated left wrist) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He is projected to miss four or five months because further exams showed ligament damage as part of the injury he suffered March 10. The Rays hope he will return in time to play regular-season games.
