UPDATE, 5:33: Morrison had MRI on his left wrist which showed torn sheath, which would require surgery. He is getting a second opinion. Tough break for free agent to be. ... RHP Chris Archer joined Orioles CF Adam Jones to meet with kids from the area Boys & Girls Club before the game. ... Cash said they want Snell to simplify his approach and his repertoire. ... The Rays were told the Orioles would be done early with batting practice so they moved up their schedule by about 20 minutes, only to end waiting for the normal time slot.

Orioles lineup:
Jones cf
Schoop 2b
Machado 3b
Trumbo dh
Davis 1b
Wieters c
Hardy ss
Stubb rf
Reimold lf
Gallardo p

UPDATE, 3:32: The Rays have Miller at SS tonight and Franklin at 1B, part of Cash's plan to rotate playing time.

Here is the lineup:
Forsythe 2b,
Kiermaier cf,
Longoria 3b,
Miller ss,
Franklin 1b,
Dickerson dh,

DEVELOPING: After taking two of three from the Blue Jays, the Rays continue their trek through the AL East race in opening a four-game series with the Orioles tonight.

LHP Blake Snell will be on the mound, seeking to snap out of a extended skid, and under orders to simplify his approach and be more aggressive.

The Orioles are starting RHP Yovani Gallardo, who snapped a five-start winless streak on Sept. 6 vs. the Rays.

Lineups when available.
