For starters, Rays vs. Angels



UPDATE, 12:18: Rodriguez says he has regained flexibility and movement in his pinkie, could be available to pinch-hit today, and expects to be a full go by Tuesday. Maddon said they are encouraged but can't rule out a DL stint yet. ... Sunday's starter will be named after today's game, Maddon said. RHP Alex Cobb, a prospect at Triple-A Durham, appears the likely choice, and the Rays will have to make room on the roster for him. ... The starting pitchers and Andy Sonnanstine took BP before the game, and David Price took a home run trot - to the applause of the crowd - after knocking one into the rightfield seats. Wade Davis and Sonnanstine followed with homers of their own.

UPDATE, 10:48: Rays lineup, without Rodriguez again:
