For starters, Rays at Twins, on David Price day
Hughes p The Rays have LHP David Price on the mound tonight as they take on the Twins, and that means two things: They are likely to get a well-pitched game, and it could be the last time he pitches in their uniform.
Price has been and will continue to be the subject of rampant trade speculation leading up to the July 31 deadline, though it certainy has not affected his performance as he has won four straight.

Further, both are lefties. But Maddon said Hughes has been doing better against lefties so he is used more right-handers.
Here is the lineup:
