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.

DeJesus preparing to play for Rays amid shadow of trade rumors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Outfielder David DeJesus would like to stay with the Rays, but he is well aware his name is being mentioned in trade rumors and he might be with a new team before the start of the 2015 season, per the Tampa Bay Times.

"I know we're going to have a bunch of great guys on this team, and I want to be part of a team that people are kind of sleeping on. I want to be part of that team that can make history in that way," he said. "I feel like I can help this team out. But if that's the way it goes, then whatever … I'm not letting it affect me at all."

With the offseason additions of John Jaso and Steven Souza, playing time at DH and in the outfield has been greatly diminished for DeJesus, who is slated to make $5 million in 2015.

"I'm taking it like I'm a Ray right now, and I'm going to keep preparing like I'm going to be a guy that's going to help this team get to a championship," DeJesus said. "It's tough when you hear your name all the time, you read your name a lot. But I've been on five teams already, so I understand the business of the game. And I'm not worried about it. I'm just going to go out and play my game."
