Souza Jr., Jennings making progess in rehab

TORONTO -- Steven Souza Jr. and Desmond Jennings both continue to progress, as each of the Rays' outfielders will be wearing a Class A Advanced Port Charlotte uniform on Saturday.

Souza (lacerated right finger) is slated to DH for the Stone Crabs on Saturday when they play at Class A Advanced Tampa. He is expected to be back with the Rays when they begin their three-game series with the Phillies on Monday.

Meanwhile, Jennings (left-knee bursitis) is scheduled to begin working out with the Stone Crabs on Saturday.

Left-hander Drew Smyly (torn left labrum) threw a simulated game on Thursday at Port Charlotte and will throw a bullpen on Saturday. His next action will be a simulated game on Tuesday.
