BREAKING: The Rays are north of the border in Toronto for a two-game series that concludes their road trip.


Jeff Niemann will be on the mound tonight for the Rays, coming off his best start of the season in New York on Wednesday.

The Jays will start Brandon Morrow, who has been dazzling in his last four starts since losing to the Rays in mid-April.

The Rays are not expected to have any roster moves this afternoon, so they apparently are willing to wait at least another day to decide on the status of LF Desmond Jennings, who has not been in the lineup for the last six games due to a sprained left knee. And, no, Hideki Matsui, is not being activated today.

Lineups when available.
