UPDATE, 1:00: Before the game, Kevin Cash said that 2B Logan Forsythe may experience some soreness after getting hit by a pitch Tuesday, but he's back in the lineup today against the Phillies. Also back in action is DH Steve Pearce, who missed games last week due to calf tightness. 

Cash added that Pearce will likely get two or three at-bats today and play again tomorrow before taking some minor league at-bats in the coming days. 

Here is the Phillies lineup:

Peter Bourjos, CF

Freddy Galvis, SS

Maikel Franco, 3B

Darin Ruf, 1B

Ryan Howard, DH

Darnell Sweeney, LF

Gabriel Lino, C

David Lough, RF

Emmanuel Burriss, 2B

Vince Velasquez, P

 

UPDATE, 9:45: Here is the Rays lineup, with Forsythe and Pearce both scheduled to play:

Forsythe 2b,
Pearce DH,
Longoria 3b,
Loney 1b,
Jennings lf,
Kiermaier cf,
Guyer RF,
Franklin SS,
Maile c,

DEVELOPING: After a team off-day Wednesday, the Rays are in Clearwater to take on the Phillies today in what has become something of an annual St. Patrick's Day tradition.

LHP Matt Moore will on the mound for the Rays, his last start before Tuesday's historic outing in Havana.

A number of the Rays regulars are slated to make the trip, including 3B Evan Longoria, CF Kevin Kiermaier and LF Desmond Jennings.

Lineups when available.
