UPDATE, 9:08
: SS Reid Brignac increased his activity this morning, hitting off a tee and running on the treadmill, and said his sore right foot feels better and if it continues to improve he hopes to get back in a game by Sunday or Monday. CF B.J. Upton said his sore lower back felt better but he wasn't sure when he would return. LF Desmond Jennings was scratched from the travel roster due to soreness in his right shoulder but said it was just a matter of being cautious.

BREAKING: The Rays are back in Bradenton today to face the Pirates at 1:05.

Opening day starter James Shields will be on the mound, but won't have a very familiar cast behind him as several of the Rays regulars are off or sidelined by injury.

Here is the lineup:
Johnson ss
Fuld cf
Zobrist 2b
Pena dh
Keppinger 1b
Lobaton c
Salazar rf
Gimenez lf
Rhymes 3b
