WILL VRAGOVIC | Times

Matt Andriese, who was shifted from the rotation to the bullpen a few weeks ago, will start the matinee.

25

June

UPDATE, 4:40: After losing the opener 5-0, here is the Rays lineup for tonight's game, with Oswaldo Arcia making his first start:

Forsythe 2b,
Dickerson DH,
Longoria 3b,
Morrison 1b,
Miller SS,
Jennings cf,
Arcia RF,
Conger c,
Decker lf,
Odorizzi p

UPDATE, 11:45: Arcia said he was excited for the new opportunity, and expected the Twins to do something with him since he wasn't playing much. ... Since being DFA'd June 16 he spent the interim time in Minnesota working out. ... He isn't in the lineup for the day game basically because he hasn't played in 12 days and the Rays need to be a bit cautious. ... Farquhar said he has been pitching better at Durham, with his velocity up from 90 to 94. He also said it's a bit weird to know he is only up for the day.

Orioles lineup:
Jones cf
Kim lf
Machado 3b
Davis 1b
Trumbo rf
Schoop 2b
Alvarez dh
Hardy ss
Pena c
Gausman p

UPDATE, 10:36: With two games today and four in a 45-hour span, manager Kevin Cash figured to get a bit creative with his lineup, and he did a bit for the matinee, with Tim Beckham at SS and batting sixth and Jaff Decker in CF. Also, of note, Arcia, idle since June 14 with the Twins, is not playing.

Rays lineup:

Forsythe 2b,
Dickerson lf,
Longoria 3b,
Morrison 1b,
Miller dh,
Beckham ss,
Decker cf,
Motter rf,
Casali c,
Andriese p

DEVELOPING: The Rays and Orioles will play twice today, at 1:05 p.m. to makeup an Apriil 9 rainout and then again at 7:05 in the original game that was initially scheduled for 4:05.

The Rays come into the doubleheader, the 25th in franchise history, having lost eight straight games.

RHP Matt Andriese, who was shifted from the rotation to the bullpen a few weeks ago, will start the matinee against Orioles RHP Kevin Gausman.

Rays RHP Jake Odorizzi, who had his choice of assignments, will work the night game against Orioles ace RHP Chris Tillman.

The Rays today will unveil new OF Oswaldo Arcia, acquired Friday from Minnesota.

Lineups when available.
