Carlos Pena returns from DL
Pena, out since Aug. 1 because of a sore right foot, played in a minor league rehab game Sunday at Class-A Charlotte. He entered Monday hitting .212 with 23 homers and 68 RBIs.
Tampa Bay also placed outfielder Gabe Kapler on the 15-day DL because of a sprained right ankle.
The moves were announced before Monday night's game against Texas.
