Escobar back in lineup, Myers better but still out



SS Yunel Escobar is back in the Rays lineup tonight but rookie OF Wil Myers is still out.

Escobar has not played since leaving the July 14 game, the last before the break, with tightness in his right hamstring. The Rays waited to have him go through an additional workout this afternoon before deciding.

Myers missed Sunday's game with left wrist soreness and said he felt better today - close to 100 percent - but the Rays are keeping him out as a precaution. He is available to pinch-hit and expects to be back in the lineup on Tuesday.
