The Rays will play the Orioles for the second straight game, this time in Sarasota at 7:05 p.m. tonight.


The tarp is on the field, but the rain has slowed, so it looks good so far in getting a game in.

RHP Alex Cobb will make his final spring  start, likely 4-5 innings. He'll face several Orioles regulars, including Nick Markakis and Adam Jones.

The Rays broke camp after last night's game, with most of the team returning to the Trop this afternoon for workouts. Many of their regular players will be in action tonight, including Evan Longoria, James Loney and Ben Zobrist.

RF Wil Myers, who was hit in the leg by a pitch last night, is not in the lineup. Manager Joe Maddon said last night he's okay.

Maddon is expected to announce today the order of the Rays rotation, following Opening Day starter David Price.

Will be posting live tweets from tonight's game @TBTimes_JSmith so follow along.
