Saturday, he was able to work out on an elliptical trainer. Sunday was not so kind.

"I don't know if I slept wrong on it, but it was not cooperating this morning," Scott said. "Today has not been a good day."

Scott will continue to be patient with the rehabilitation process.

"All you can do is wait and listen to your body," he said. "I'll continue to heat it up and rest."

The Rays used Wil Myers as their DH on Friday and Saturday. Kelly Johnson got the start there Sunday.
