Joyce activated, in lineup; Rhymes optioned

by Aaron Giddens

Help may be on the way to Tampa Bay. Matt Joyce, who has been out since mid-June with oblique and back strains, was activated off the 15-day DL and was placed fourth in the line up and is in right field for tonight's game against the Indians.

While this news is good, it's not all good. Fan favorite Will Rhymes was optioned to Durham to make room on the 25-man roster for Joyce. many fans that I have been reading on Twitter don't like this move, instead calling for the option or outright release of Hideki Matsui. I would be inclined to agree.

A DH hitting .160 isn't worth the roster spot.
