UPDATE, 5:44: Cash said the change in the batting order was two-fold, to thicken the middle and add protection for Morrison by dropping Miller to 5th and to try to get Dickerson going at No. 2. ... The Rays haven't said yet who the 26th man will be for the Saturday doubleheader but if they opt for a reliever RHP Danny Farquhar is the likely choice. ... OF Brandon Guyer (hamstring) took BP and ran the bases in Port Charlotte and could start a rehab assignment as soon as Saturday, with an eye on returning by early next week.

Orioles lineup:

Jones cf
Schoop 2b
Machado 3b
Trumbo dh
Davis 1b
Wieters c
Hardy ss
Reimold lf
Rickard lf
Gallardo p

 

DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to snap a season-high seven-game losing streak tonight as the take on the Orioles on what thus far has been a rainy Friday.

LHP Matt Moore, who has pitched better of late, will be on the mound for the Rays, facing Orioles RHP Yovani Gallardo.

The Rays added some help for their outfield earlier Friday, acquiring Oswaldo Arcia from the Twins, though he isn't expected to join them until Saturday at the earliest.

The lineup has a slightly different look tonight, with Corey Dickerson moved up to the No. 2 slot and Brad Miller dropped to fifth as manager Kevin Cash tries to get some protection for 3B Evan Longoria.

Here is the lineup:

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