Scott set to rejoin Rays on Tuesday
ST. PETERSBURG -- He said that he's been ready since Wednesday, and now designated hitter Luke Scott is set to rejoin the team prior to Tuesday's matchup with the Royals.

Scott played in eight games for Class A Charlotte, hitting .308 with a pair of homers and six RBIs. He saw some action at first base during the stint, which concluded with a pair of multihit games for the Stone Crabs.

"Everything's feeling good, I'm ready to go," Scott said. "It's good to see the team is playing well, and I'm excited to be back."

Manager Joe Maddon said that there is a possibility of Scott playing first base at times, but he'll see much of his time as a DH whenever Evan Longoria is unable to play.

"I'll do whatever they want me to do," Scott said.

With Scott's return, the team must clear a space on the roster as well as in the lineup. Maddon said that there is some flexibility on the horizon, as Longoria may start seeing time at third base as early as the current six-game homestand, thereby opening the DH slot.
