Jennings (hamstring) made his first rehab appearance for High-A Charlotte against Jupiter on Tuesday, going 1-for-4 as the DH.

EDGE Analysis

The rehabbing outfielder reportedly emerged from the game without problems and is therefore expected to play for the Stone Crabs throughout the weekend. If Jennings continues setback-free, he's expected to rejoin the Rays in the early part of next week.

Jennings (hamstring) continues to engage in light running with High-A Charlotte, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The rehabbing outfielder has reportedly not experienced any setbacks, and could soon return to the big league club. Jennings would be the fourth Rays outfielder to return from injury over the last month, with Steven Souza (hip), Kevin Kiermaier (wrist) and Brandon Guyer (hamstring) all having resumed action recently.

Jennings (hamstring) was scheduled to work out with High-A Charlotte before their Sunday evening game against Dunedin, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's another step in Jennings' continuing rehab of his hamstring injury, and comes on the heels of a batting practice and conditioning work session Saturday. Assuming he continues ramping up his physical activity without setbacks, Jennings could be activated the Rays at some point in the not-too-distant future.

Jennings (hamstring) will participate in batting practice and conditioning work Saturday, Rays' beat writer Roger Mooney reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings has been gradually ramping up his activity of late and he'll be able to take BP at Tropicana Field with his teammates Saturday. That said, given that Saturday marks his first time running since injuring his hamstring, he'll likely need at least several more days before the Rays consider activating him from the disabled list. Furthermore, Kevin Kiermaier's activation Friday gives the Rays the luxury of being patient with Jennings.

Jennings (hamstring) is scheduled to begin baseball activities Thursday, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings landed on the disabled list Monday due to hamstring tightness, but hasn't seen game action since June 30. The fact that he's already able to begin throwing and hitting is a good sign, and suggests the outfielder could return to the Rays shortly after the All-Star break.

Jennings (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings had missed the previous three games with the hamstring issue, and with the Rays well-stocked in the outfield following the recent returns of Brandon Guyer and Steven Souza, there was little incentive for the team to wait on him. The 29-year-old had been serving in a regular starting role prior to going down with the injury, but with the Rays outfield at close to full health and Jennings holding down a .202/.286/.352 slash line for the season, he could have to settle for fourth outfield duties upon returning.

Jennings (hamstring) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's the third straight absence for Jennings, who continues to suffer from a tight hamstring that he sustained Thursday. Steven Souza's return from the DL on Friday has cushioned the blow of Jennings' injury, and it's conceivable that the ailing outfielder could lose out on his starting role once he's fully healthy. New acquisition Oswaldo Arcia has been promising so far in his eight games with the Rays, and may rank as a higher-upside option than Jennings at this point.

Jennings (hamstring) out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jennings left Thursday's game with left hamstring tightness and has missed the past two games now due to the injury. Manager Kevin Cash said Friday that there had been no conversation as of yet about a DL stint for Jennings, and he will get another day off as Brandon Guyer is slotted into center for a second consecutive game.

Manager Kevin Cash said Friday that there has been no conversation about a DL stint for Jennings (hamstring) at this point, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The skipper did say that Jennings will need a day or two after leaving Thursday's game with left hamstring tightness, but he echoed Jennings' sentiment that it's not a serious issue. Tampa Bay will go with an outfield consisting of Nick Franklin, Brandon Guyer and Oswaldo Arica on Friday with Jennings out and Corey Dickerson serving as the designated hitter.

Jennings (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

A bout of left hamstring tightness knocked Jennings out of Thursday's game, but he's downplaying the issue, saying it will not cost him extended time. We'll take him at his word, but Nick Franklin will be afforded a start in the outfield in the meantime with Brandon Guyer shifting to center to replace Jennings.
