Zobrist returns to Rays' lineup

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Rays activated second baseman Ben Zobrist from the 15-day disabled list for their weekend series with the American League East-rival Boston Red Sox.

Zobrist, out since May 15 due to a dislocated left thumb he sustained while sliding head-first on a stolen base attempt, will bat second for Friday's game at Fenway Park.

The 2013 AL All-Star went 1-for-4 with a walk in a rehab game with Single-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Zobrist batted .260 with three home runs and nine RBI in 40 games prior to the injury.

The Rays cleared a roster spot by optioning infielder Cole Figueroa to Triple- A Durham during Thursday's off day.
