For starters, Rays vs. Tigers



UPDATE, 5:20: Maddon said he liked what Brignac did offensively and defensively on Tuesday so that's why he is back in the lineup tonight, with Sean Rodriguez sitting out. ... Maddon said he decided to have the platers take batting practice on the field today since they would only get one chance during the following four days, with a day game here Thursday and in Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. .... Bullpen coach Bobby Ramos remains at home in Miami, dealing the a throat infection and a resulting lack of energy. Maddon saud there is "nothing critically wrong" and he expects Ramos back at some point before the end of the season. ... The Tigers will be without Miguel Cabrera on Thursday as he takes a one-day paternity leave.

DEVELOPING: The Rays will try again tonight to find a way to beat the Tigers, having lost the last two nights and five straight times this season.

The Rays will have Wade Davis on the mound, and hope to have B.J. Upton in the lineup after he was limited to pinch-hitting on Tuesday due to a right shoulder sprain he sustained on Monday. The Tigers, who lead the AL Central, will have Max Scherzer on the mound.
