For starters: Rays at Orioles



UPDATE, 5:59: Maddon said Molina was fine but Lobaton matches up better with Arietta. And as far as moving Johnson up to second, he said "this is like try-to-build-Kelly-confidence-day.'' .. Luke Scott ran lightly on the bases today, but only at about 60 percent, and will have to do so again on Thursday before advancing to the next stage. Best guess if not setback is he starts a rehab assignment sometime during homestand. ... RHP Jeremy Hellickson was sent back to the hotel because he was throwing up, and Maddon said there has been an intestinal bug going through the clubhouse but for the most part it hasn't been too "severe.''

McLouth lf

DEVELOPING: Happy to be in Baltimore after the tragic events in Boston on Monday, the Rays take on the Orioles tonight seeking to snap another three-game losing streak and discover an offense,

RHP Roberto Hernandez, who has not pitched well against Baltimore, will be on the mound for the Rays against RHP Jake Arrieta, who had not pitched well againt Tampa Bay.

The Rays had a heavy turnout this afternoon for early hitting practice.

They also made a trade, acquiring LHP Jeff Beliveau from the Rangers.

Lineups shortly.
