The Rays have added another tribute to senior advisor Don Zimmer, as 3B coach Tom Foley on Friday started wearing Zimmer's No. 66 jersey. Zimmer is continuing to battle in recovery from April heart surgery and related lung issues. Zimmer, transferred recently to a rehab facility, is close to coming off a ventilator and breathing on his own. "All that can be said is he is fighting to survive,'' son Tom Zimmer said.
