Rays set rotation: Shields, Price, Hellickson, Moore, Niemann



The Rays have set the order of their pitching rotation: Shields, Price, Helllickson, Moore, Niemann.

So that means:

4/6, vs. Yankees: RHP James Shields
4/7, vs. Yankees: LHP David Price
4/8, vs. Yankees: RHP Jeremy Hellickson

4/10, at Tigers: LHP Matt Moore
4/11, at Tigers: RHP Jeff Niemann
4/12, at Tigers: Shields

4/13, at Red Sox: Price
4/14, at Red Sox: Hellickson
4/15, at Red Sox: Moore
4/16, at Red Sox: Niemann

Manager Joe Maddon said the decision on how they would set up after James Shields worked the opener was not based on all of April, not just the first series.

"We feel pretty comfortable about that,'' he said. "As we're setting that whole thing up we're just not thinking about the first series, thinking about the entire, pretty much the month of work ahead. So we looked at all the different variables involved and came to the conclusion.''
