After that, its time to go to work, said Brentz, who was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on June 24 for his first major league stint since debuting in 2014.

I dont think anybody really does.TRAINERS ROOMRays: OF Kevin Kiermaier (wrist) will go through another batting practice session Saturday, and could start a rehab assignment Monday or Tuesday.Red Sox: IF Travis Shaw remains day-to-day with a bruised left foot.
