Joyce sees Dr. Andrews

Joyce sees Dr. Andrews

CHICAGO -- Matt Joyce, who has been nursing a strained right elbow since Spring Training, went to Birmingham, Ala., on Monday to see Dr. James Andrews, and the Rays' medical director advised rest. He will now rehab in St. Petersburg rather than Triple-A Durham, where he began the season.

Joyce entered Spring Training as a serious candidate to claim the right-field job, but his elbow problem prevented him from making hard throws. He has been able to hit all along.
