For starters, Rays at Astros



Update 12:15 p.m. The Rays lineup is the same as the last three games, except for Jose Molina behind the plate instead of Ryan Hanigan.

Developing: The Rays will wrap up a three-game series with the Astros in a Father's Day matinee at Minute Maid Park, hoping for their first series win since May 23-25 against the Red Sox.

Manager Joe Maddon kept the same lineup for three straight days - for the first time since 2010 - to provide some consistency to a struggling offense. And the lineup is expected to be close to the same today, only with Jose Molina behind the plate instead of Ryan Hanigan.

LHP David Price will be on the mound. Though he's winless in his last five starts, the former Cy Young winner feels like he's a better pitcher than he's ever been. He'll face an aggressive Astros lineup that includes some key prospects.

In medical news, OF Brandon Guyer went 1-for-6 last night for Triple-A Durham as DH, and will play today in the outfield. RHP Jeremy Hellickson threw a bullpen yesterday and is scheduled for his third rehab start Tuesday in Louisville.

Lineups, and more, to come.
