Worth noting

• To make room for Kiermaier on the 40-man roster, the Rays transferred reliever Jesse Crain to the 60-day disabled list. Crain hasn't pitched since late June, for the White Sox, because of a shoulder strain and has been ruled out for the postseason.

The active roster was at 38 for Monday's tiebreaker against the Rangers; rosters go back to 25 for the Wild Card Game.

• If the Rays beat the Indians in the Wild Card Game to advance to the American League Division Series, Game 1 against the Red Sox at Fenway Park would be at 3:07 p.m. ET on Friday, with Game 2 at 5:37 p.m. on Saturday.

Wednesday's Wild Card Game in Cleveland is scheduled for 8:07 p.m., with all games broadcast on TBS.

Delmon Young, batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter on Monday, is the third player in Major League history to appear in three tiebreaker games or series, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The other two are Dodgers outfielders Carl Furillo (1946, '51 and '59) and Duke Snider (1951, '59 and '62).

Young was with the Twins for game No. 163 when they lost to the White Sox, 1-0, in 2008, and when they beat the Tigers, 6-5, in 12 innings in 2009.
