Jennings was back in the Rays’ lineup on Tuesday night, but manager Joe Maddon admitted “he’s not a solid 100 percent,” and may not be ready to play back-to-back games.

Jennings, who was sidelined by lingering soreness in the groin area, went 2-for-5 and is hitting .276 on the season.

Monitor his status before having him in your lineup.

J.J. Hardy, Baltimore Orioles

Hardy, who was not in the Baltimore lineup on Tuesday, could return Wednesday as he said his right hamstring was feeling “much, much better.”

The veteran ran and took some ground balls before batting practice on Tuesday.

Byron Buxton, Minnesota Twins

MLB’s top prospect Buxton, who sprained his left wrist in a Minor League Spring Training game on March 16, could play in his first extended spring training game on Thursday.

Buxton, ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect by MLB.com, is scheduled to take batting practice on the field for the first time on Wednesday at the club’s Spring Training complex in Fort Myers, Fla.

Dee Gordon, Los Angeles Dodgers

Gordon was removed from Tuesday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies at the end of the seventh inning with an unspecified injury.

He had hustled for a double and stole third with a head-first slide, appearing to slam his head into the knee of Phillies third baseman Jayson Nix. Justin Turner took over for Gordon at second base.
