Rays third base coach Tom Foley on Friday started wearing the No. 66 jersey of senior adviser Don Zimmer, 83, who is recovering 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.
Sean Rodriguez, who entered Thursday's game vs. the A's at second base in the 10th, was the first player to hit a walkoff homer after entering as a defensive replacement in extra innings since the Orioles' Taylor Teagarden (July 4, 2012), the Elias Sports Bureau said. He is one of five active players to do so. That includes Phillies INF Reid Brignac, who did it in the 11th of a 1-0 Rays win over the Yankees on Sept. 13, 2010. The others: Dodgers' David Ross (Sept. 30, 2004), White Sox's Nick Swisher (Aug. 5, 2008) and Cubs' Reed Johnson (April 20, 2011).
