And the winner is ...

Devil Rays fans and opponents aren't the only ones taking notice of how well Scott Kazmir has done. Monday, Kazmir was named AL Player of the Week for his winning performances against the White Sox and Marlins. Kazmir is the ninth Devil Ray to win an AL Player of the Week award, the first since Aubrey Huff last July. Kazmir was 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA for the week and struck out 19, most of any AL pitcher.

Lefthander Casey Fossum got through his Monday afternoon bullpen session with no problems from the groin strain that forced him out of Friday's game and he expects to make his next start as scheduled on Wednesday.

The Rays are certainly thankful that the Rogers Centre has a roof because temperatures in Toronto on Monday were supposed to be in the 40s much of the day.

Carl Crawford and Aubrey Huff were back in the lineup Monday after resting Sunday against Marlins lefthander Dontrelle Willis.
