Fernando Rodney returned to the Tampa Bay Rays this morning, proudly displaying his World Baseball Classic championship medal.

While the Rays are concerned with Rodney's heavy workload during the tournament – he appeared in all eight games for the Dominican Republic – Rodney said it won't be a problem.

"No, I feel great," he said.

Rays manager Joe Maddon voiced his concern Wednesday night before the game with the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers was rained out.

"Do we keep more of an eye on him or do you just parcel out his work a little bit more in the beginning? I don't know," Maddon said. "Does it really benefit him during the course of the year somehow? Does it get us off to a better start? I don't know. But I think long range, by the end of the season, you almost have to count these appearances to the total number, so you have to really watch August and September."
