Wil Myers activated from Disabled List

Batting 6th tonight.

The Rays have activated 2013 Rookie of the Year WIl Myers from the Disabled List and his Triple-A Durham rehab assignment.

Myers has been on the disabled list since May 31 with a right-wrist fracture, suffered in an outfield collision with Desmond Jennings in Fenway Park.

He returns to give the Rays a shot in the arm at the right time, because his power and confidence are back.

Myers will slot in at DH this evening, batting sixth in the line up.

During his rehab assignment, the Rays began using Myers in left field for the first time in his career with the organization. No word on where Joe Maddon plans to use his defense, but might I suggest first base?

Vince Belnome, having collected his first major league hit and RBI last night -- and nearly a game changing home run -- was designated in a corresponding move.

Just in time for his own Star Wars bobblehead give away, too (a week from Saturday)!

Brace your self for bat flips. The Force is with this one.
