Injury of the day
Add manager Joe Maddon to the list of Rays battling injury. Though Maddon isn't joining the nine players on the disabled list, he joked he is "day to day" with a left hamstring injury sustained Thursday night when a dog chased him as he took the garbage out at his South Tampa home. "I won't be jogging out to the field any time soon," Maddon said, smiling.
