For starters, Rays at Angels without Upton

UPDATE, 9:10: Maddon said Upton wanted to play but didn't look up to it. They hope he may be available for late-game duty, and should be back Tuesday. Several other players, including Longoria, have a touch of what the Rays are calling a stomach flu. ... Maddon will catch the ceremonial first pitch tonight as the Angels honor past players and staffers to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

UPDATE, 7:35: B.J. Upton is not in the Rays lineup tonight because he is sick, sidelined with the same stomach bug that has been going around.

Ruggiano is in center, and Longoria is in the lineup.

Rays lineup:
Damon DH,
Zobrist 2b,
Joyce rf,
Longoria 3b,
Kotchman 1b,
Jaso c,
Ruggiano cf,
Fuld lf,
Brignac ss,
Price p

DEVELOPING
: After losing three of four in Seattle, the Rays are in Anaheim for a three-game series that starts tonight.

LHP David Price will be on the mound, seeking his 7th win, which would match Jeremy Hellickson for the team high. The Angels are startign RHP Tyler Chatwood.

3B Evan Longoria is expected to be in the lineup after leaving Saturday's game early due to tightness in his left side and not starting Sunday, though he did deliver a key pinch-hit and played defense in the 8th.
