For starters, Rays at Marlins, on a bad roll
UPDATE, 4:59: There should be an update on RF Wil Myers' wrist when Maddon holds his pre-game medis session, which is at 5:30 today. ... RHP Jeremy Hellickson threw 50 pitches over 3-plus innings today during a simulated game in Port Charlotte, with Tim Beckham among the hitters. The team said all went well with Hellickson, who is recovering from Jan. 29 right elbow surgery and hoping to return late June/early July.
UPDATE, 4:55: The Rays lineup has Ali Solis catching and Ben Zobrist in RF.
Loney 1B, S-Rod LF,
And the Marlins lineup:
DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to snap a season-high six game losing streak tonight when they take on the Marlins in Miami.
RHP Alex Cobb will be on the mound for the Rays, facing veteran LHP Randy Wolf.
The Rays have been struggling in numerous ways, but most offensive of late has been their lack of run production.
Sunday marked the sixth time the Rays were shutout, and the 25th time they scored two or fewer.
More pointed, they have scored in the first inning in only one of their last 19 games.
Today's game will be preceded by a charity softball game between the Rays and Marlins wives.
Lineups when available.
