Player Notes
Rays manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that an MRI on Yunel Escobar's left knee showed no tears or structural damage.

Advice: Escobar injured the knee during an awkward slide into home plate on Tuesday. The good news is that he's only dealing with a bruise, but there won't be enough time for him to return this season.

Rays manager Joe Maddon said after Tuesday's game that Yunel Escobar (knee) is likely done for the season.

Advice: Escobar suffered a left knee sprain in the game and will undergo a precautionary MRI. The Rays are confident the ailment is minor, but they don't feel the need to push Escobar to return. "You probably won't see him the rest of the season, honestly,'' Maddon said. "I think it's severe enough that even during the (bulk of the) regular season he would not play the rest of this week.'' Maddon figures to mix-and-match at shortstop the rest of the way.
