Jake Odorizzi will be on the mound for the Rays. Hard-throwing Archie Bradley starts for Arizona.

UPDATE, 2:51: Longoria is back, as expected, in Rays lineup after taking Tuesday off. ... The Rays are juggling their rotation over the weekend, pushing struggling Drew Smyly to the back end, so he won't pitch again until June 15. Cash said there are no injury concerns. ... So the starters vs. Houston will be Andriese, Archer and Moore. ... Given how they started the roadtrip, Cash said a win today to give them a .500 record for the 10-day three-city trip is important.

Here is the Rays lineup:
Motter ss,
Dickerson lf,
Longoria 3b,
Morrison 1b,
Souza RF,
Jennings cf,
Beckham 2b,
Casali c,
Odorizzi p

And here is the D'backs lineup:
Segura 2b
Lamb 3b
Goldschmidt 1b
Peralta cf
Weeks lf
Herrmann c
Tomas rf
Ahmed ss
Bradley p

 

DEVELOPING: The Rays wrap up their 10-game three-city roadtirip this afternoon against the D'backs, needing a win to make it a 5-5 journey.

RHP Jake Odorizzi, who threw a career-high 120 pitches in his last start, will be on the mound for the Rays. Hard-throwing RHP Archie Bradley starts for Arizona.

The Rays have yet to announce their pitching plans for the weekend.

3B Evan Longoria is expected back in the lineup after taking Tuesday off due to "total body soreness.''
