For starters, Rays at Jays

22

April

UPDATE, 4:31: Johnny Damon said he actually has a crack in the bone at the tip of his left ring finger, and it will be take about four weeks to fully heal, though he plans to play through it. ... LHP J.P. Howell (shoulder surgery) did well in his extended spring outing. ... 3B Evan Longoria (left oblique strain) took swings again with no problem, and hopes to advanced to swinging at tossed balls on Saturday and then batting practice in the cage. It sounds like he will go with the Rays to Minnesota at least for a few days before starting a rehab assignment, but he said he's "95 percent" sure he'll be back in the Rays lineup sometime during the next homestand , April 29-May 5.

The Rays are here in Toronto - albeit delayed a bit last night, according to David Price's Twitter posts, because Evan Longoria forget his passport and had to go home and get it,  - looking to get back to the .500 mark.

RHP Jeremy Hellickson will be on the mound, seeking to square his record at 2-2, against Jays lefty Jo-Jo Reyes. Hellickson is facing the Jays for the first time.

Between the delay and the usual Customs experience, the Rays didn't get to their hotel until around 4 a.m.
