Update 5:14 p.m. Manager Joe Maddon said CF Desmond Jennings (sore left knee) is still day-to-day, as he's waiting to see more improvement before putting him back in the lineup. With the extra outfielders on the roster, there's no rush.

*LHP Matt Moore said Tommy John rehab is going as well as it could be, and that he plans to play catch for the first time on Monday. Moore is shooting for a mid-May return.

*RHP Brandon Gomes felt good Tuesday, having thrown 2 2/3 hitless innings in his first game since getting called up. Gomes said he abandoned his cutter after his first week back in Triple-A Durham, with the Rays wanting him to stick with his fastball/slider mix. And they liked his results on Tuesday. "He looked normal," manager Joe Maddon said.

*Bench coach Dave Martinez said he hasn't heard anything from the Astros yet, but points out that last time - in 2012 - it took several weeks for them to reach out to any potential candidates. Martinez feels like he's ready for a managerial job, and is open to the opportunity.
