For starters, Rays vs. Rangers - on ESPN



The Rays will wrap up a three-game series in Texas tonight with a matchup with the Rangers on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball.


LHP David Price takes the mound, coming off one of the better outings of his career, and hoping to get his first ever win against the Rangers.

Tampa Bay has its usual righties in the lineup against LHP Derek Holland. Manager Joe Maddon said while OF Matt Joyce is not in the lineup today, he'll play all this week, as the Rays are scheduled to face most all righthanders in the Mariners and A's series.

*Maddon said there's still no new update on any potential signing of DH Hideki Matsui.

*Maddon said C Jose Lobaton (shoulder) is doing some work at extended spring, and is not far off from a rehab assignment.

*Just a number to ponder - The Rays are 1-5 all-time on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, with the only win Aug 29, 2010.
