Gameday report: Rays at Jays
Update 12:17 p.m.: Not much news in manager Joe Maddon's pre-game media session. There was a small tid-bit on how manager Joe Maddon will handle the catching situation this season; he has said he plans to plan ahead before each week and each series, splitting time for Kelly Shoppach and Dioner Navarro based on a lot of things, including how they match up against certain pitchers.

And here's the Jays lineup
Developing: The Rays will face the Jays here today in Dunedin, with right-hander Wade Davis making his first start since getting named the team's fifth starter.

Here is today's lineup:
