Rays DH John Jaso out for Wednesday, David DeJesus to fill in


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Rays designated hitter John Jaso will miss Wednesday's game with a wrist injury, manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday per the Tampa Bay Times.

Jaso suffered a wrist contusion Monday and will also miss Tuesday's game with the injury. He is expected to be re-evaluated Wednesday for a further diagnosis after X-rays did not show a break and an MRI didn't show any ligament damage, according to the MLB.com. He is considered day-to-day.

"The wrist is still pretty sore today," Jaso said. "The range of motion. The mobility is still restricted. We're still kind of assessing it day to day. Probably not going to go out there with the team and do anything as far as like BP goes, or fundamentals or things like that. It's going to be one of those things where I go to sleep and discuss it again tomorrow with the trainers [on Wednesday]."

The team wants him to consider not sliding headfirst anymore.

"I don't know how many times I've been told I could slide headfirst, and I'm like, 'Yeah, I know,'" Jaso said. "It's kind of one of those things where I'm probably going to slide feet first next time, because I don't want this to happen again. "

David DeJesus will fill in as the DH Wednesday. DeJesus is hitting .269 with six home runs and 16 RBI in his career as a DH.
