For starters, Rays vs Jays

16

August

Update 12:30 p.m. Manager Joe Maddon said DH Pat Burrell's neck feels better, and he's eligible to pinch-hit today and should be good to go to return to the lineup Tuesday after the team's off-day.

Maddon said Dioner Navarro got the start behind the plate again because the Jays are throwing a lefty Marc Rzepczynski, and Navarro hits better from the right side.

The Rays finish off a three-game series with the Jays today at the Trop, coming off their much-needed win Saturday night that snapped their five game losing streak.

It's family day here at the Trop, so several of the Rays have brought their wives and kids onto the field and are playing catch, etc.

RHP Matt Garza will start today for the Rays.

The lineup:
Bartlett, ss
Crawford, lf
Longoria, 3b
Zobrist, 2b
Pena, 1b
Aybar, dh
Kapler, rf
Navarro, c
Upton, cf
