Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings returns from knee surgery

8 Comments

Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings is off the disabled list and back on the active roster two months after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

Jennings is making $3.1 million this season via arbitration and the 28-year-old former top prospect has largely underwhelmed in the majors, so his performance down the stretch could determine if he has a future in Tampa Bay.

Jennings is a career .248 hitter with a .721 OPS, but when healthy adds to the mediocre offensive production with good speed and defense.
