Alex Cobb took the loss to fall to 9-7 after allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 6.1 innings against the Red Sox on Sunday. 

Cobb has now struck out six batters or more in each of his last five starts. He is a must-start nearly every time out.

Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the Rays starting lineup on Sunday.

Jennings is still bothered by the knee injury he suffered when he crashed into the wall earlier in the week. Consider him day-to-day and watch Kevin Kiermaier handle the work in center field.

Ben Zobrist is not in the Rays starting lineup on Sunday.

Just a routine day off for Zobrist who has started every game since June 20. He doesn't hit particularly well against Clay Buchholz anyway (just 4-for-34 career), so it's a good day to relax.

Rays recalled Steve Geltz from Triple-A Durham.

Geltz is sporting a 2.38 ERA over 41.2 innings at Durham. He's also coming off his second suspension for drug abuse, though no drug was specifically mentioned. He'll pitch out of the Tampa pen, though possibly just in low-leverage situations to start.

Rays recalled Curt Casali from Class-A Charlotte.

The Rays apparently have an extra roster spot here as they're bringing up their third catcher with seemingly no corresponding roster move. Casali will provide depth, but that's about it.

David DeJesus (hand) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

The Rays aren't going to activate DeJesus until rosters expand. The one extra day isn't going to make any difference at all. DeJesus may have been playing well before he landed on the DL, but he's been out since June 18, so enough time has passed to be able to say that what he did before is irrelevant. He's going to need to come out the gate on-fire is he's going to push some of these youngsters off their perch.

Ryan Hanigan went 2-for-2 with a double and one RBI against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Hanigan is now just 3-for-11 with one RBI since making him return to the starting lineup earlier in the week as he remains an Al-only option at best moving forward. At this point in the season there are plenty of better options to deploy behind the dish so no reason to make him a consideration.

Jake Odorizzi tossed seven scoreless innings and allowed just one hit and three walks with seven strikeouts against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Odorizzi improved to 10-11 following Saturday's solid outing as he was able to put his last disastrous start behind him. Sitting on a 4.03 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through 27 starts is nothing special, but as long as he continues to support a high strikeout rate (163 K through 147.1 IP) he remains a solid fantasy asset even if he throws a stinker in there every now and again. He is expected to take on the Blue Jays on Thursday in his next trip to the mound.
