Tampa Bay Rays CF Desmond Jennings was activated off the disabled list this afternoon, the Rays obviously satisfied that his fractured left middle finger is healed enough – and not causing too much pain – for him to return to duty.

RHP Brandon Gomes was optioned to Triple-A Durham to make room for Jennings on the roster.

Jennings broke the finger sliding into second on Aug. 3, and at the time the Rays projected just a two-week absence.
