Scott improving, targeting Monday return
WASHINGTON -- Luke Scott has been on the disabled list since June 15 (retroactive to June 9) with back stiffness. But the Rays slugger feels as though he's getting close to making his return.

Scott told reporters on Wednesday that he has been hitting off a tee and taking flips.

"Tomorrow or the next day, I'll be taking batting practice on the field," Scott said. "... Things are feeling better, got to get myself back into swinging shape a little bit. But it feels pretty good.

"There's just a little bit of tightness in there. But it's nothing like it was before."

If he continues to progress, Scott believes he will be activated when the team begins a series in Kansas City on Monday.

"Yeah, I should be ready to go," Scott said. "That's the plan for now. Kansas City. Hopefully I'll be ready by then. Should be."
