UPDATE, 5:23: OF Wil Myers (wrist) said the Rays will likely figure out the schedule for his return Friday and that he'll take batting practice the next day. Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, has been out with a right wrist fracture since late May.

C Ryan Hanigan (oblique) felt sore after taking batting practice today. Manager Joe Maddon said he'll take a few days off. Hanigan had been penciled in for a rehab assignment Wednesday for Class A Charlotte.

OF David DeJesus is no longer wearing the brace to protect his broken left hand and said he needs to strengthen it before taking swings again.
