Rays vs. Yankees, with Upton back



UPDATE, 6:02: Zobrist doesn't expect to play this weekend, and said Sunday will be a big day in determining whether he will be back soon or need to go on the DL.

UPDATE, 5:15: Rays manager Joe Maddon says "less than 50 percent chance of making a trade, and if so it would come at the "11th hour." ... Also said Ben Zobrist (sore back) is feeling better but may not play all weekend. And B.J. Upton is close to 100 percent.

Yankees lineup:

Jeter ss

Swisher rf

Teixeira 1b

A-Rod 3b

Cano 2b

Posada c

Grabderson cf

Curtis dh

Gardner lf

Hughes p

UPDATE, 3:40: Rays lineup w/Upton:

Jaso c

As is the looming trade deadline and A-Rod's pursuit of 600 homers wasn't enough, the Rays and Yankees are playing a pretty big series at the sold-out Trop this weekend. No lineups yet.
