For starters: Rays vs. White Sox

The Rays will try to avoid a sweep from the White Sox today in a matinee at Tropicana Field.


RHP Alex Cobb will be on the mound, trying to win his third consecutive start since getting called up from Triple-A to replace injured RHP Jeff Niemann.

DH/OF Hideki Matsui, who hit a two-run homer in his Rays debut Tuesday, is not in the lineup today against LHP Jose Quintana.

In injury news, OF Desmond Jennings (left knee sprain) passed his final test -- running the bases and sliding today -- and will start a rehab assignment Thursday in Port Charlotte, and then move on to Durham Friday. Jennings said he hopes to rejoin the Rays Tuesday in New York.
