It’s not the start to a joke but there is some good news on the horizon for the Rays. Brandon Lowe, one of the Rays three all stars this year, has been on the IL since July 3 with a bruised shin. Lowe took batting practice Monday and went full speed in the field Tuesday with very optimistic results. There remains some uncertainty when he will a rehab assignment but skipper Kevin Cash seemed very pleased with Lowe’s progress and recovery.

INF Yandy Diaz, sidelined since July 22 with a foot contusion, began work in the field this week but has yet to take batting practice.

INF Joey Wendle also took fielding drills this week on his own path to recovering from wrist inflammation that’s had him on the shelf since July 31. Despite the progression, there is still no timetable for his return to the lineup.
