Tampa Bay Rays' J.P. Howell heads home due to foot injury

Tampa Bay Rays LHP J.P. Howell left the team to return to St. Petersburg due to "left foot soreness" and will be seen by Dr. Koco Eaton.

Howell, who had a rough outing Tuesday, would not have been used today, having worked back to back games.

Manager Joe Maddon said the Rays athletic trainers are "pretty confident" Howell won't need to go on the DL, that the soreness of more of a "nuisance" than an actual injury. Maddon expects Howell to rejoin the team on Friday in Houston.
