Howell heads home due to foot injury, Maddon doesn't think it's serious



UPDATE, 1:14: Maddon said the Rays athletic trainers are "pretty confident" Howell won't need to go on the DL, that the soreness of more of a "nuisance" than an actual injury. Maddon expects Howell to rejoin the team on Friday in Houston.

DEVELOPING: LHP J.P. Howell left the team to return to St. Petersburg due to "left foot soreness" and will be seen by Dr. Koco Eaton. Howell, who had a rough outing Tuesday, would not have been used today, having worked back to back games.
