Rays activate Jennings from DL, option Thompson
The Tampa Bay Rays have activated LF Desmond Jennings from the disabled list.
OF Rich Thompson has been optioned to Triple-A Durham to make room.
Jennings, the Rays primary leadoff man and leftfielder, spent the weekend on a rehab assignment with Durham, recovering from a left knee sprain.
Jennings could be in the lineup tonight against the Yankees, who are starting LHP Andy Pettitte.
