Tampa Rays third baseman Evan Longoria was placed in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays after being activated from the 60-day disabled list earlier Tuesday.
To make room on the active roster, infielder Will Rhymes was optioned to Triple-A Durham.
The Rays have been shut out over their last 21 innings, so they need the offensive punch provided by Longoria, who has been out since April 30 with a partially torn left hamstring,
He was just 5-for-25 with seven walks and eight strikeouts in his minor-league rehab stint, but had two hits in the final game on Sunday.
Manager Joe Maddon has said he will use Longoria as a DH until the hamstring is fully healed.
