• Outfielder David DeJesus will be out of action until Monday due to soreness in his right side. "Nothing serious," Maddon said. "He's just a little sore."
• After experiencing visa problems that delayed his arrival to camp, Wilson Betemit joined the Rays on Thursday. The veteran infielder appears in good shape and could see his first action with the Rays on Monday, when they play the Red Sox in Fort Myers. Maddon also allowed that Betemit could see some action in Minor League games to get at-bats.
• The Rays' public relations staff came up with an interesting note on Matt Moore. The left-hander went through a three-game stretch in 2013 when he posted an 0-3 mark with a 13.96 ERA. If those results were extracted from his season's results, he would have finished with a 17-1 record and a 2.35 ERA.
