Med­i­cal matters

Tampa Bay Times - - Raysreport -

• Duffy (right ham­string tight­ness) said he felt much bet­ter Thurs­day, in­clud­ing af­ter work on the el­lip­ti­cal and in the bat­ting cage, and is tar­get­ing a Satur­day re­turn to the lineup, though he still has to take ground balls and run the bases. “Just mak­ing sure — we’re in that kind of mode,’’ he said.

• RHP Nathan Eo­valdi (arthro­scopic el­bow surgery) will work three in­nings or 50 pitches tonight for the Char­lotte Stone Crabs, his start pushed back three days af­ter some right-side sore­ness and shifted from Triple-A Durham due to weather con­cerns. He will stay with the Crabs to work out for sev­eral days, with a de­ci­sion pend­ing on whether he will make a fourth start or re­join the Rays next week.

• Gomez (right groin strain) said he was also feel­ing bet­ter and hopes to come off the DL when el­i­gi­ble May 26 or shortly there­after, with a plan to slowly re­sume ac­tiv­i­ties “step by step,” start­ing to­day.

• RHP Yonny Chiri­nos (fore­arm strain) has started throw­ing bullpen ses­sions that man­ager Kevin Cash said are “go­ing re­ally well.” The Rays are eye­ing an early June re­turn.
