UPDATE, 7:55: Some serious rain just blew through Coors Field forcing batting practice to end abruptly, and the tarp to be put on the field. But it appears to moving fast and there's talk the tarp will come off soon.

Jason Bartlett is back at shortstop for the first time since May 24, as the Rays get closer to full strength. They will, though, be without the DH all week for these interleague games.
