For starters: Rays at Mariners, facing King Felix

UPDATE, 8:01: Cash said they will continue to mix and match with the lineup, and that Jennings has been working hard but is clearly battling himself. ... Cash said when Boxberger comes back and closes, Colome will be used in the setup role. ... Andriese will stay in Rays rotation, they are deciding when he next pitches.

UPDATE, 7:23:
Don't expect to see RHP Alex Colome, who is 9 for 9 in saves, pitch tonight for Rays. He has worked 3 straight games and in 4 of the last 5 days. He joined Rafael Soriano as only the second pitcher in franchise history to have saves in 4 consecutive games.

UPDATE, 6:22:
Rays lineup has Morrison and Guyer but no Jennings:

Forsythe 2b
Miller ss
Longoria 3b
Dickerson dh
Souza rf
Morrison 1b
Guyer lf
Kiermaier cf
Conger c
Moore p

DEVELOPING: After sweeping the Angels in Anaheim to run their winning streak to four games and move above .500 for the first time, the Rays are in Seattle tonight to face the Mariners at 10:10.

They will have a tough task, as Felix Hernandez is on the hill, and has never lost to the Rays in 10 games against them in Seattle. Hernandez, though, is coming off a rough start.

The Rays are starting LHP Matt Moore, who is coming off a rough start of his own.

Here is the Mariners lineup, including Robinson Cano, who was just named AL Player of the Week:

Aoki lf
Marte ss
Cano 2b
Cruz dh
Gutierrez rf
Seager 3b
Iannetta c
Lee 1b
Martin cf
Hernandez p
