--RHP Steve Geltz was recalled from Triple-A Durham to make his Tampa Bay Rays debut Monday. He allowed an inherited runner, giving up a hit in one-third of an inning during the Rays' 4-3, 10-inning win over the Red Sox at Tropicana Field. The 26-year-old was 3-3 with a 2.38 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 40 1/3 innings for Durham. He was suspended 50 games in May after testing positive for a "drug of abuse," a result, he said, of an offseason mistake with friends.

--C Ali Solis was outrighted from the Tampa Bay Rays' 40-man roster and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Durham on Monday. Solis is blocked at Tampa Bay with defensive specialist Jose Molina a fixture behind the plate and Ryan Hanigan a slightly better offensive option in spot duty. Call-up Curt Casali figures to absorb any other catching duty that could arise.

--OF David DeJesus (left hand fracture) was activated from the disabled list Monday and started at designated hitter. He finished 0-for-3 with a strikeout before being removed for a pinch hitter in a platoon move in the ninth inning.

--CF Desmond Jennings, who is recovering from left knee soreness, sat out a third consecutive day. Kevin Kiermaier again replaced him in center field, but 2B Ben Zobrist took his leadoff slot.

--OF Kevin Kiermaier again replaced injured Desmond Jennings in center field on Monday, but he batted ninth instead of first. The rookie finished 1-for-3 and was walking intentionally, raising his batting average to .269 as he continues to become entrenched in the Tampa Bay outfield.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "It started off rough, but it had a nice finish." -- Rays LF Matt Joyce, whose only hit in five at-bats Monday was a walk-off single that gave Tampa Bay a 4-3 win over the Boston Red Sox.
