July

The Rays will finish off their first half of the season today with a series finale against the A's, with LF Carl Crawford getting the day off.

C Dioner Navarro was back, saying he's sore but will be fine after being hospitalized last night due to getting hit in the head with a foul ball. C John Jaso was called up from Triple-A Durham (replacing RHP Grant Balfour, who went on the bereavement list to go to Australia for the death of his grandfather) and will back up Michel Hernandez today.

Manager Joe Maddon said LHP David Price will be available out of the bullpen today if need be.

Navarro said he expects to be OK to start the second half Friday in Kansas City.

The lineup:
Upton, cf
Aybar, 2b
Longoria, 3b
Pena, 1b
Zobrist, rf
Burrell, dh
Bartlett, ss
Kapler, lf
Hernandez, c
Shields, p
