ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings will not play again this season due to a tooth infection that required surgery.

Limited to 28 games this year because of left knee injuries, Jennings had been expected to return this season.

"It's been a tough year," Jennings said before Friday night's game against Baltimore. "Can't go nowhere but up."
