For starters, Rays vs Royals; Pena gets day off
The Rays will take on the Royals for the second in a four game series, with Carlos Pena getting the day off.
Manager Joe Maddon said part of it was by matchups with Royals lefthander Bruce Chen, who is tough on lefties, plus it gave him a chance to get Willy Aybar in the lineup as well, which they want to do more often (Aybar will likely start Monday too)
Rays rookie RHP Jeff Niemann will be trying to become the first Rays starter to reach double digits in wins.
