Weather interfering with Scott's rehab schedule

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Rays have been trying to find game time for designated hitter Luke Scott, who has been on the disabled list since July 21 with an oblique strain, but rain washed away those hopes in the first two attempts at a rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte.

The Stone Crabs' Friday game and Saturday's doubleheader opener were both postponed with the Jupiter Hammerheads due to rain. There was hope that the two teams could get in the final game of the doubleheader Saturday, which would give Scott some much-needed at-bats.

"He'll play tonight, hopefully the second game and see how he feels tomorrow," manager Joe Maddon said.

Maddon said he would like Scott to get a few at-bats and run around before returning to the Rays. "He needs to play and test it out," Maddon said.

The second game of the doubleheader is scheduled for a delayed start, according to the Stone Crabs' website, due to weather.
