Rays to set roster today
The Rays have until 5 p.m to set their 25-man roster for Friday's start to the season.
After Tuesday's developments, including news that closer Kyle Farnsworth is headed to the DL, the Rays will make final decisions on what will be an unexpected group.
They have already said OF/DH/C Stephen Vogt will be called up, and today are expected to add RHP Josh Lueke. It would appear that all three middle infielders, Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and Sean Rodriguez will also be on the team.
They will start the season with at least three players on the DL, OF B.J. Upton, OF Sam Fuld and Farnsworth. Also, possibly, C Robinson Chirinos.
