Another Durham incident
Rocco Baldelli made in through the first two games of his minor-league rehab at Triple-A Durham with no apparent problems from the strained left hamstring that had sidelined him since late March. Baldelli was the DH on Tuesday night and then played rightfield in Wednesday's matinee. He told Rays officials he did not run 100 percent.
Doug Waechter goes into his start on Thursday at Boston equipped with a new weapon, a split-finger pitch he broke out against the Marlins on Saturday.
Manager Joe Maddon said he wasn't committed to using the dramatic shift - the ""34 defense'' - against Boston's David Ortiz this weekend at Fenway Park.
