ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Wil Myers has been scratched from the starting lineup because of flu-like symptoms.
Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, had been listed as the second-place hitter for Thursday night's game against Toronto.
The team announced the move about 90 minutes before first pitch.
Also, the Rays placed infielder-outfielder Sean Rodriguez on the paternity leave list and recalled infielder Vince Belnome from Triple-A Durham.
