After beating the Marlins on Tuesday, the Rays are back at it again tonight.

LHP Drew Smyly continuing his impressive comeback from a shoulder injury, will be on the mound for the Rays. RHP Jarred Cosart starts for the Marlins.

Rays manager Kevin Cash said 2B Logan Forsythe was still sore from being hit on the right foot by a pitch on Tuesday but should be available if needed to pinch-hit and is expected to play again this season.

Also, Cash announced that LHP Matt Moore would get to make another start, in the season finale on Sunday. Moore, who has been sharp in five starts since his return from Triple-A, had been pushing for the additional opportunity.

The Rays have John Jaso in leftfield tonight, his first start in the field since Aug. 23, and part of the reason, Cash said, is to weigh whether he is an option for next season. Jaso is free agent after the season, having missed half the season due to injury and serving primarily as the DH.
