ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. —

The Tampa Bay Rays say senior baseball adviser Don Zimmer will return in 2011 for an eighth season with the AL East champions and his 63rd year in professional baseball overall.

Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman describes the 79-year-old as a "constant resource for coaches and players alike."

Zimmer will be entering his 53rd season in the major leagues as a player, coach or manager. With the Rays, he is in uniform as a coach during spring training and for pregame workouts at all regular-season home games.

The Rays also said Thursday that Stan Boroski will return for a second season as an assistant to the pitching coach.
