RAMOS, BELL STAY BEHIND: The Rays announced that pitchers Cesar Ramos and Heath Bell will not make the trip to Fort Myers Monday, and will instead throw in a minor-league simulated game.  Ramos is in competition for the team's fifth starter replacement for Jeremy Hellickson, who is sidelined through May after undergoing elbow surgery.  Right-hander Alex Cobb will not travel with the team Wednesday when they travel to Dunedin to take on the Blue Jays.  Nathan Karns will get the start in that game.

DEJESUS COULD PLAY TUESDAY; PERALTA, ZOBRIST LATER THIS WEEK: Manager Joe Maddon said Monday that OF David DeJesus (sore right side) could be available to play Tuesday, though RHP Joel Peralta (neck) and 2B Ben Zobrist (neck) are still a couple of days away from returning.
