ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have activated shortstop Yunel Escobar from the disabled list and placed reliever Jake McGee on the paternity list.

The moves were announced Friday.

Escobar missed 15 games due to right shoulder soreness. McGee's wife gave birth to a daughter on Thursday.
