The Rays placed Gabe Kapler on the 15-day DL, retroactive to August 15, with a right ankle sprain. It is no coincidence that the move comes on the heels of Carlos Pena just being activated from the DL. Kapler could still return in September.
Ike Davis was 0-0 with 1 BB (IBB) against the Astros.
Batting 8th, Brad Ausmus was 0-3 against the Braves.
