Ruggiano, Guyer to rejoin the Rays on Thursday

The Rays will expand the roster by at least two Thursday when they activate outfielder Justin Ruggiano from the disabled list and recall outfielder Brandon Guyer from Triple A Durham.

Manager Joe Maddon said they would add up to three players Thursday when the rosters expand to 40, so the Rays could bring up another player. Maddon is hoping for catcher Jose Lobaton, but Lobaton is currently rehabbing a sprained left knee at Durham and is not expected to be ready for major league duty until Sunday at the earliest.

Ruggiano went on the disabled Aug. 10 with left knee bursitis.

This will be Guyer’s third stint with the Rays. He homered in his very first at-bat against the Orioles in May and hasn’t had a hit since.
