Rays, Red Sox ready to roll
The Rays and Red Sox are preparing for the opener of the big three-game series at the Trop, with first place in the balance.
CF B.J. Upton (strained left quad) remains sidelined for the Rays, so rookie Fernando Perez is again in centerfield, and playing his first game at the Trop.
Otherwise, the lineups are pretty much as expected.
