For starters, Rays vs Jays

Update 11:25 a.m. Not much news out of Joe Maddon's pre-game session. He's looking for LHP David Price to have better fastball command, and to simplify things on the mound, not overthink what he's doing.

2B Akinori Iwamura was on the field playing catch, and looked good moving around, seemingly making a good recovery from knee surgery. Maddon said Iwamura may join the Rays on the road trip following the All-Star break to do some more agility work with the training staff.


**

The Rays, coming off back-to-back walkoff wins, will go for a sweep today of the Jays and ace RHP Roy Halladay.

LHP David Price will get the start this afternoon, hoping to get back to his mentality and stop overthinking things on the mound.
