Pearce is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Logan Morrison (forearm) returning to the lineup and the game taking place in a National League park (no DH), Pearce was left out of Wednesday's lineup. He will be back in the mix this weekend when the Rays host the Yankees, although he could also be on the move at the trade deadline, as his .389/.484/.741 slash line against lefties ought to intrigue some contending teams.

Pearce hit his 10th homer in a 2-for-5 game with two RBI in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce looked in top form in his first game back with the Rays since June 20 due to a hamstring injury. He was hitting a robust .322/.393/.540 with nine home runs and 25 RBI in 51 games before the injury, making him the Rays' best hitter and an excellent fantasy option.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce's rehab game Sunday for High-A Charlotte apparently went well, as he will be rejoining the Rays slightly ahead of schedule. He has been one of the club's few bright spots this year, with a brilliant .322/.393/.540 line in 51 games.

Pearce (hamstring) is scheduled to play first base in a rehab game Sunday with High-A Charlotte, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce had been fielding grounders at first base just days earlier, and the Rays apparently felt comfortable enough with where he was in his recovery to have him test out his hamstring in game action. If all goes well Sunday, he could move his rehab assignment to the Double-A or Triple-A level in the coming days and perhaps rejoin the Rays later next week.

Pearce (hamstring) said Tuesday that he feels "great" and is hoping to return after the All-Star break, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The expectation was that Pearce would need at least three weeks to rehab his left hamstring injury. It sounds like he's progressing well and should be available for most of the second half of the season, barring any setbacks as he completes his recovery. With Logan Forsythe back at second base for Tampa Bay, Pearce may be relegated to a platoon role at first base upon activation.

Pearce (hamstring) is expected to miss at least three weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce was placed on the 15-day DL earlier Tuesday, and the club is now sending him back to Tampa to undergo an MRI. The results will likely determine the severity of the ailment and the next steps in his recovery so a clearer timetable should become available then, but for now, it appears as though Pearce will likely be out until after the All-Star break.

Pearce (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pearce had to be helped off the field in the ninth inning of Monday's tilt, and though the exact nature of the ailment remains unclear, it's apparently serious enough to force him out for at least two weeks. Despite going 0-for-12 over the last three games, the 33-year-old had been on a tear in June, slashing .380/.404/.560 on the month. He's currently without a precise timetable, but Jaff Decker and Taylor Motter appear to be in line to see increased playing time for however long Pearce remains sidelined.
