For starters: Rays at Red Sox, seeking a change

UPDATE, 3:01: LHP Dana Eveland cleared waivers, again, and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Durham, again. He has been DFA'd by the Rays twice this year.

UPDATE, 2:45:
The Rays set their rotation for the post All-Star break portion of their schedule, planning to start RHP Chris Archer, LHP Matt Moore and RHP Jake Odorizzi against the Orioles next weekend, and then LHP Drew Smyly, LHP Blake Snell and Archer against the Rockies in Colorado. ... RHP Matt Andriese will continue to be stretched out to provide depth, Cash said. ... OF Kevin Kiermaier took batting practice and remains on target to start playing rehab games next week and be back in the lineup as soon as Friday, pending how his timing at the plate looks. ... Casali said he feels good and is ready to return to action. ... The Red Sox will be without closer Craig Kimbrel for 3-6 weeks as he injured his left knee while shagging during BP on Friday and will undergo surgery; RHP Brad Zeigler was acquired late Friday from Arizona.

Red Sox lineup:
Betts rf
Pedroia 2b
Bogaerts ss
Ortiz dh
Bradley cf
Hill 3b
Shaw 1b

UPDATE, 12:44
: The Rays have Souza in CF for the second time in the last week or so, opening space for Nick Franklin, who has been their hottest hitter, to stay in the lineup along with Oswaldo Arcia.

Also, Curt Casali is back behind the plate for the first time since leaving Wednesday's game after being hit on the side of the head on a back swing.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Forsythe 2b,
Miller ss,
Longoria 3b,
Morrison 1b,
Souza cf,
Dickerson dh,

DEVELOPING: After losing for the 20th time in their last 23 games, the Rays are trying to find someway to head into the All-Star break on a positive note.

LHP Matt Moore, who has been their best starter over the last month or so, is on the mound against Red Sox RHP Rick Porcello.
