Sunday morning: No C.C. and Hammel may be back ....



Carl Crawford is out until at least Tuesday, Jay Witasick is unsure of how badly his right elbow is hurt and the Rays are banking on a gem from James Shields on Sunday as they escape from New York.
RHP Jason Hammel, unexpectedly optioned to the minors on Saturday, was back in the clubhouse and could end up staying with the team if Witasick goes on the DL, and probably would go into the rotation, which could mean a short stay for J.P. Howell.

With only a two-man bench (Raul Casanova and Greg Norton), here is the lineup:
Iwamura, 3b
Harris, ss
Upton, cf
Pena, 1b
Gomes, lf
Navarro, c
Wilson, 2b
