PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Luke Scott, Sam Fuld and Matt Moore all will be delayed before playing in their first exhibition game for the Rays this spring.
Scott (right shoulder surgery) said he feels fine but understands that patience is needed for his situation. Manager Joe Maddon said he could start getting some game action next week.
Fuld, who had an issue with a tendon in his right wrist at the end of last season, won't see action until early next week. Maddon doesn't feel any urgency to rush Fuld, who said the wrist feels fine.
Moore (lower abdominal pain) said he no longer feels any discomfort. The rookie left-hander played catch Friday. "It's a 24-hour-at-a-time waiting game," Moore said.
Maddon said that Rays head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield will likely schedule two bullpen sessions for Moore before throwing him into a live batting-practice session. After that, he should be ready for action. Maddon did not rule out Moore seeing action in a game next week.
