      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Back in action Wednesday

      Jesus Sucre (wrist) is batting eighth and starting at catcher for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sucre was hit in the right wrist by a deflected ball Sunday, but further evaluations indicated it wasn't enough to miss any extensive time, so he'll draw the start in the series finale. The 29-year-old has seen plenty of opportunities as the starting backstop this year, turning in a .257 batting average to go along with 20 RBI. However, Sucre could see his playing time reduced in the second half of the season as counterpart Wilson Ramos continues to increase his workload.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Wrist feeling much better

      Jesus Sucre's right wrist, which was hit by a deflected pitch Sunday, improved overnight to the extent that he didn't need a planned CT scan Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sucre has been termed "good to go", meaning that he should be available without limitations the next time the Tampa Bay Rays want to give Wilson Ramos a day off from catching duties. The veteran backstop didn't take the full brunt of the pitch that caused his injury, as the ball hit the Orioles' Ruben Tejeda first. That likely played a large part in the rather rapid recovery, which eliminates the need for the Rays to call up Curt Casali from Triple-A Durham.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Headed for further tests on wrist

      Jesus Sucre, who hit his fourth homer but was also hit in the right wrist by a deflected ball Sunday, will undergo a CT scan Monday after initial X-rays were inconclusive, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "The X-rays don't look that bad," he said. "I just hope everything is okay."The 29-year-old's injury was somewhat of a freak occurrence, as the ball first made contact with the Orioles' Ruben Tejeda before reaching Sucre's wrist. If the veteran backstop is forced to miss any time, Curt Casali could be called up from Triple-A Durham in his stead.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Raps out trio of hits Sunday

      Jesus Sucre went 3-for-4 in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Orioles.The veteran backstop is now the primary backup at catcher with Derek Norris having been designated for assignment Saturday. Sucre is known for his outstanding defensive work behind the dish, although he's also generating serviceable offense this season -- a .245 average, three doubles, three home runs and 19 RBI over 101 plate appearances. Wilson Ramos made his season debut on Saturday after offseason knee surgery, but the Tampa Bay Rays' current aversion to deploying him in back-to-back games figures to afford Sucre a steady dose of starts for the foreseeable future.
