Ready for more ... Upton update



The Rays are looking for their third straight win as the face the White Sox - and ex-Ray Toby Hall - open a four-game series at the Trop. Josh Wilson gets a second straight start at second base, giving IF Ty Wigginton a day off from the field.

Rays manager Joe Maddon also said that it is possible B.J. Upton could return to the team for the end of the Cleveland series this weekend. Maddon said Upton will likely report for a local rehab assignment for Class-A Vero Beach, which plays at Tampa, on Wednesday, participate in pregame that day and play 2B on Thursday. From there, the team will treat Upton on a day-by-day basis.

The lineup:
Iwamura, 3b
Harris, ss
Crawford, lf
Wigginton, dh
Young, cf
Gomes, rf
Pena, 1b
Navarro, c
Wilson, 2b
