Player Notes
Brad Boxberger (abdomen) threw a scoreless inning Sunday in a rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham.

Advice: Boxberger struck out two and yet needed only nine pitches to get through the frame. It was his fourth minor league rehab appearance, and his first time pitching on back-to-back days (he allowed two runs in an inning of work Saturday). The right-hander should be cleared to join the Rays' bullpen early this week and manager Kevin Cash has maintained that Boxberger will return immediately to the ninth-inning gig. That would push Alex Colome back to setup duty.

Brad Boxberger (abdomen) threw a scoreless frame Sunday in a rehab appearance for High-A Charlotte.

Advice: It was an eventful inning for Boxberger, who allowed one walk and one hit over 24 pitches. He also recorded a strikeout. Boxberger expects to make one more appearance for Charlotte before moving his rehab to Triple-A Durham. He should be back in the Rays' bullpen by the end of the month.

Brad Boxberger (abdomen) will start a minor league rehab assignment Sunday with High-A Charlotte.

Advice: Boxberger threw 22 pitches during an extended spring training appearance Friday and reported feeling fine. Boxberger is working his way back from core muscle surgery in March. It's unclear how many minor league games he'll need to get into before being deemed ready to return, but he should be back in a Rays uniform before the calendar turns to June and he's expected to take over immediately as the team's closer.
