KANSAS CITY The Rays activated DH Luke Scott from the disabled list and designated DH/1B Shelley Duncan for assignment this afternoon.

Scott has not played this season because of a right calf strain.

Duncan, who was signed as insurance against an injury to Scott, made the Opening Day roster when Scott went on the DL, hit .182 with two home runs and six RBI in 55 at-bats over 20 games.

Scott will be the DH against right-handers, which he will tonight when the Rays open a three-game series against the Royals. Manager Joe Maddon said he will use Sean Rodriguez and Ryan Roberts as his DH against lefties.

Also, SS Yunel Escobar participated in early batting practice this afternoon and took grounders at shortstop. Escobar, who has not played since experiencing tightness in his right hamstring last Wednesday, is expected to rejoin the lineup tonight.
