RHP Nathan Karns, a long-shot candidate for the fifth starter spot, will be making the start against a formidable Jays lineup that includes Jose Reyes, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion.

Ben Zobrist, having been sidelined with a stiff neck, is expected to start as DH. Desmond Jennings and Matt Joyce will also be here.

There's a busy morning at Port Charlotte, with RHP Alex Cobb and RHP Grant Balfour scheduled to throw in a minor league game. RHP Jeremy Hellickson played catch for the first time since elbow surgery and was encouraged with how good it felt.
