Rays activate Wil Myers from the disabled list on Wednesday.

No word as to whether Myers will actually be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, but one would have to assume so given the early activation and the evening start. It's safe to get him back into your lineups, but just be conscious of the fact that he may not hit for power early on as wrist injuries take a fair amount of time from which to recover, particularly with power hitters.

Rays option Vincent Belnome to Triple-A Durham.

With the return of Wil Myers, we say goodbye, once again, to Belnome. The utility infielder will be back once rosters expand in September.

Wil Myers (right wrist fracture) should rejoin the Rays during there series with the Tigers, if not Wednesday then Thursday when the Rays face LHP David Price.

Myers is just in the final stages of his rehab. The Rays want to get a last look at him prior to activation so that means Thursday is the day.

Ben Zorbist went 2-for-3 with a RBI, two walks and two runs scored in the Ray's loss to the TIgers on Tuesday night. 

Zobrist is having himself a nice run in the month of August, slashing .333/.410/.431 with seven extra-base hits, eight RBI, 13 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases. Although he is a far cry form a 20 home run hitter like in the past, he still makes for a solid fantasy option in all league formats when taking into consideration his multiple position eligibility.

Grant Balfour did not record a out while giving up three runs in the top of the eleventh on one hit and three walks falling to 1-5 on the season for the Ray's.

Balfour continues to have a tough time on the mound since returning to the Rays this past offseason and is now sitting on a 5.48 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through 47.2 innings of relief. He has not been in the closer role for quite some time now and considering now well Jake McGee has adapted to the ninth inning there is little chance he ever gains back the role ever again while with the Rays.

James Loney had a big day at the plate going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Ray's loss to the Tigers on Tuesday night. 

Loney has now logged four multi-hit games over his last six contests, owning a .400 average with two home runs and eight RBI in that stretch. Although Loney is not your typical power-hitting first baseman, he has managed to own a respectable batting average (.288 BA) while driving in 59 RBI through 475 at-bast this season. He remains a nice complimentary piece for those in deep leagues looking for help in batting average, which is his most productive fantasy category.

Chris Archer allowed four runs (one earned) on five hits and five walks with six strikeouts over 5.2 innings in a no decision against the Tigers on Tuesday night. 

Archer settled for a no-decision on Tuesday night despite allowing just one earned run. His performance marked the third time over his last three starts in which he allowed only one earned run, but has just one win in that stretch to show for it. Now sitting 8-6 with a 3.17 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 25 starts, Archer has solidified himself as a must-own fantasy option in all formats, especially while owning a 8.44 K/9 through 150.1 innings. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Update: David DeJesus (hand) is expected to move his rehab assignment to Class A Charlotte Wednesday.

The veteran outfielder has been out since June with a broken bone in his hand. He's good at getting on base, but doesn't do much else fantasy wise.
