David DeJesus LF/CF.. TB 4 Days

DeJesus (hand) is not likely to return to the Rays until Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Though he has gone 4-for-12 during the last four games for High-A Charlotte, it appears that DeJesus (hand) will not return to the Rays' lineup until after rosters expand for September.
