For starters, Rays vs. Jays
Update 5:27 p.m RHP Kyle Farnsworth (elbow) said he's good to go tonight, with manager Joe Maddon saying he could have pitched Thursday night.
Farnsworth said it's been tough being out the last couple weeks due to a tender elbow, but he hasn't felt sore in the past couple days and is excited to be part of what could be a memorable week. He said one change he will make is not use his splitter, a pitch that he thinks partly caused his discomfort in the elbow.
*RHP Jeff Niemann, who had his start pushed back due to upper back soreness, said he'll be ready to go Saturday night against the Jays. Maddon said LHP David Price would come back and pitch the regular season finale, following RHP James Shields (Monday) and RHP Jeremy Hellickson (Tuesday) in the Yankees series. Maddon said LHP Matt Moore will go back to the bullpen, but not likely available until Sunday since he threw over 80 pitches in his first big-league start, and victory, Thursday.
Update 5:23 p.m. Here's the Rays lineup, with Desmond Jennings on top.
Developing: The Rays will continue their fight for the Wild Card spot by beginning a six-game homestand tonight against the Jays, knowing they'll likely need to win all their remaining games to catch the Red Sox, who are up by two games for the AL's final playoff spot.
Tampa Bay LHP David Price will start on the mound, with RHP Brandon Morrow going for the Jays.
RHP Kyle Farnsworth has hoped he'll be available tonight after battling a tender elbow the past couple weeks.
Rays lineup to come...
