Tampa Bay activated Desmond Jennings from the disabled list after the speedy left fielder missed the past four weeks with a knee injury.

Jennings went just 3-for-15 (.200) with zero walks and one double on a brief minor-league rehab assignment.

Hideki Matsui has started four of the past five games in left field, so with Jennings back and likely to play every day again it’ll be interesting to see what kind of role the Rays have for Matsui.

Career minor leaguer Rich Thompson, who got his first big-league hit at age 33, was sent back to Triple-A to make room for Jennings’ return.

    Finally! Now hopefully, Longoria will make an appearance soon.

    Eva, of course. That’s what everybody was thinking anyway. Right?

    Well, now we won’t get to see Rich Thompson’s neck muscle jut out of his neck grotesquely when he runs. That was a sight to behold. It was like he was trying to eke out a sprint victory with his chin.
