For starters, Rays at Tigers in spring finale

28

March

The Rays, having wrapped up their Grapefruit League title last night, will play their spring exhibition finale today in Lakeland against the Tigers.

Tampa Bay travels to Montgomery Saturday to play it's Double-A team, but this is the last one against big-league teams.

It's a big day in TigerTown, as the Tigers announced an eight-year, $248 million extension with MVP Miguel Cabrera, with a press conference across the street this morning.

For the Rays, LHP Matt Moore will make his final spring start today, coming off Sunday's outing in which he was struck in the mouth with a line drive. RHP Grant Balfour will also make his last appearance, as will other key members of the bullpen like Joel Peralta and Jake McGee.

A few regulars are in the lineup today, including Wil Myers in rightfield and both catchers are going to play.

Will be posting live updates on Twitter @TBTimes_JSmith, so follow along and ask questions if you'd like!
