DEVELOPING: The Rays are set to take on the Brewers at noon today with several significant storylines.

The biggest of course is the potential that this could be ace David Price's last game before being traded, with the nonwaiver deadline at 4 p.m. Thursday.

After dealing with the rumors for more than a month, Price enters today apparently in a good mood, posting a tweet at 7:39 this morning:

This is my last start for the Rays....IN JULY!!! ������ been up and been ready!!!

The other main angle is that the Rays - who have won 11 of their last 12 - with a win can get back to .500, a remarkable accomplishment since they were 18 games under after play on June 10 at 24-42. The Rays would be the fourth team to do so, joining the 2006 Florida Marlins, 2004 Tampa Bay Devil Rays and 1899 Louisville Colonels.

While the Rays have Price on the mound as they go for the sweep, the Brewers are starting RHP Yovani Gallardo.

Rays lineup when available.

Brewers lineup:
Gomez cf
Lucroy 1b
Braun rf
Ramirez dh
Weeks 2b

Davis lf
Reynolds 3b
Maldonado c
Segura ss
Gallardo p
