Live from Port Charlotte: Afternoon update



Live batting practice was very lively on Wednesday for the Rays.

* LHP David Price certainly had an impressive session, breaking the bats of three pretty good hitters - Evan Longoria, Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez. "He's a pretty good pitcher,'' Damon said.

* RHP Adam Russell said he felt bad about hitting B.J. Upton, especially being a new member of the team. "Not a good way to make a first impression,'' he said. Upton was sore, but said he resumed drills and didn't expect to miss any time. "It didn't feel good, and it still doesn't,'' he said.

* RHP Wade Davis will throw his first batting practice session on Thursday and said he expects to make his exhibition debut on Tuesday.
