For starters: Rays vs. Blue Jays, looking for 1st W



UPDATE, 5:36: Cash said there was no further clarification from the umpires or MLB on Monday's night's confusion or extended delay, but he reiterated that he did not challenge the fourth-inning play, on whether Steven Souza Jr. caught a fly ball. Cash said most important was that they got the call right. ... Ca6h said he has no concerns about Odorizzi having a rough final outing of the spring. ... Several of the Rays right-handed hitters, such as Steve Pearce, Brandon Guyer and Tim Beckham, are expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's matinee against Jays LHP J.A. Happ.

UPDATE, 5:32: The Rays have the same lineup for the third straight game, with the exception of having Hank Conger back behind the plate.

Rays lineup:
Forsythe 2b
Morrison 1b
Longoria 3b
Dickerson DH
Jennings lf
Miller ss
Souza rf
Kiermaier cf
Conger c
Odorizzi p

And the Jays lineup:
Pillar cf
Donaldson 3b
Bautista rf
Encarnacion dh
Tulowitzki ss
Smoak 1b
Saunders lf
Martin c
Goines 2b
Sanchez p

DEVELOPING: The Rays take on the Blue Jays tonight in the third game of their season-opening series, having dropped the first two.

RHP Jake Odorizzi will be on the mound for the Rays, opposed by Jays RHP Aaron Sanchez.

Odorizzi plans to make less use of his splitter/changeup this season and more of his curveball.

Lineups when available.
