St. Petersburg, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Rays activated outfielder David DeJesus off the 15-day disabled list Monday.

DeJesus had been sidelined since suffering a broken left hand on a check swing June 18. He just completed an eight-game minor league rehab assignment and went 5-for-23.

The 34-year-old veteran was batting .269 with five homers and 17 RBI in 62 games before the injury.

Tampa Bay also made a few more moves with rosters allowed to expand, adding catcher Curt Casali and pitchers Brandon Gomes and Steve Geltz from the minors. Catcher Ali Solis was outrighted off the 40-man roster and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Durham.
