Worth noting

• Maddon said right fielder Wil Myers, who last played May 30 and has been on the disabled list with a slight stress fracture in his right wrist, remains on schedule to return sometime in mid-August.

• Outfielder David DeJesus (fractured left hand) and catcher Ryan Hanigan (left oblique strain) have no current timetables to return. Hanigan has recently hit off a tee and could begin rehab during the team's upcoming homestand.

• Thursday's off-day will mark the seventh day off for the Rays in a stretch of 15 days. Maddon said he has tried to view the extra layoffs as a positive.

"I thought it could also be beneficial if we did it right," Maddon said. "Going into August we'd like to be somewhat rested. You should be getting your second wind somewhat going into August. I've always been very mindful of not beating guys up before we get to that point."
