Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings will be activated from the 60-day disabled list on Friday after recovering from June knee surgery, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Jennings has been playing in rehab games since the beginning of the month, and the team optioned Joey Butler to Triple-A Durham to make room for Jennings' return.

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Demond Jennings could be activated from the disabled list Tuesday after recovering from a knee injury, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Jennings completed a seven-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Sunday, but the team is still unsure whether he will be activated Tuesday. The 28-year-old has not played for the Rays since April 25 due to a case of bursitis in his knee. He played four of the seven rehab games in left field, where he is likely to play upon his return to the major leagues, but his bat was quiet, as he collected just three hits in 21 at-bats. "The main thing is to make sure I was healthy and that I felt good running, playing," Jennings said. "Everything is good." Even if Jennings is not activated Tuesday, he should be expected to return by Wednesday.

Jennings (knee) hopes to begin a rehab assignment by August, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Jennings underwent a knee scope in early-June, and although he says his knee feels fine at this point, the outfielder has yet to be cleared for baseball activities. A late-season return remains optimistic at this point, as there are simply too many variables and potential obstacles in play.

Jennings (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Steve Carney of WDAE 620 AM reports.

Jennings isn't expected to return until at least mid-August after undergoing a knee scope earlier in June, so the 60-day DL move won't alter his recovery timetable. Instead, it will allow the Rays to open up a roster spot for the recently signed Grady Sizmore, who had his contract purchased from High-A Charlotte ahead of Sunday's game against Boston.

Jennings (knee) is expected to miss eight weeks from undergoing arthroscopic surgery Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Jennings has been out since April 25, but will now be out until mid-August. Brandon Guyer and David DeJesus will likely see the majority of the playing time in left field in place of Jennings.

Jennings (knee) will have arthroscopic surgery Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Things have seemingly been trending in this direction for quite some time; Jennings hasn't played in a game since Apr. 25, and he recently visited with a knee specialist in Colorado. He can now safely be ruled out through the All-Star break, but the Rays presumably hope to have him back at some point in the second half of the season. Until then, the Rays will continue to cover Jennings' absence with a slew of outfielders.

Jennings is slated to visit a knee specialist in Colorado, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Jennings took some at-bats in an extended spring training game Monday after a nearly month-long shutdown period, but the knee was still an issue. The Rays seemingly want to get a better idea of how the knee is healing before determining the next step for Jennings, and thus, he remains in a holding pattern in regards to a possible return timetable.

Jennings (knee) batted in extended spring training Monday, but "still felt something," according to Rays manager Kevin Cash, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Jennings has been out since early May due to bursitis in his left knee, and while it's good that he was able to take a few at-bats, it doesn't sound like he's close to heading out on a rehab assignment just yet. Brandon Guyer will continue to see regular time in Tampa's outfield while Jennings remains out.
