CF Desmond Jennings was activated off the disabled list this afternoon, the Rays obviously satisfied that his fractured left middle finger is healed enough - and not causing too much pain - for him to return to duty.

RHP Brandon Gomes was optioned to Triple-A Durham to make room for Jennings on the roster.

Jennings broke the finger sliding into secong on Aug. 3, and at the time the Rays projected just a two-week absence.

Jennings tested the finger playing for Class A Charlotte on Sunday night and went 1-for-3.

Gomes is expected to be recalled when rosters expand Sept. 1.
