For starters: Desmond Jennings sits, lineups vs Tigers

Drew Smyly, winless over his last seven starts, faces the Tigers tonight.

CF Desmond Jennings is not in tonight’s lineup, listed officially as day-to-day. Rays manager Kevin Cash said it might take a day or two before the training staff can fully understand the severity of Jennings’ left hamstring, which tightened on him Thursday and forced him out of the game.

Speaking of that game, the Rays blew a five-run ninth inning lead and lost 10-7 to the visiting Tigers, thus clinching a sub-.500 record heading into the All-Star Break for only the second time during the “Rays” era. The 2014 team (45-53) was also under .500 at the break. That team did manage to claw its way back to .500, if only for one night in August.

Drew Smyly, winless over his last seven starts, faces the Tigers tonight.
