Baldelli's return in question?



CF Rocco Baldell may not be returning to the Rays lineup by Friday after all.
Baldelli tweaked his troubling left hamstring leaving the batter's box in his fifth and final at-bat Monday at Triple-A Durham, and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday in Durham.
Baldelli has been out since mid-May with a left hamstring strain, and the Rays were hoping to have him play four games at Durham and activate him on Friday. If the latest tweak is serious, his return could be put off for weeks.

Also, RHP Edwin Jackson is said to be "fine" after leaving Monday's game with cramping in his right hand, from the tip of his index finger into his forearm. He left the game in the fifth, and Jason Hammel ended up getting the win.
