For starters: Rays vs. Dodgers, with Moore on the mound

Matt Moore will start for the Rays tonight.


Matt Moore will start for the Rays tonight.

UPDATE, 5:46: Lots of hugs from the contingent of former Rays who are in town with the Dodgers. ... RHP Brad Boxberger threw his third bullpen session and on Friday will advance to the next stage of his recovery from core muscle repair surgery when he throws live batting practice in Port Charlotte. If all goes well he will do so again Monday and then start a rehab assignment of about a half dozen appearances ... Cash said the Rays will keep their rotatioin in order through the weekend in Anaheim, and then add a fifth starter in Seattle. ....

Here is the Rays lineup, with a right-handed lead against Kazmir:
Forsythe 2b
Guyer DH
Longoria 3b
Pearce 1b
Souza rf
Jennings lf
Beckham ss
Kiermaier cf
Casali c
Moore p

Hernandez dh
Puig rf
Gonzalez 1b
Turner 3b
Kendrick 2b
Thompson lf
Ellis c
Pederson cf
CUlberson ss
Kazmir p

DEVELOPING: The Dodgers tonight make their visit to the Trop since 2007, but they have several familiar faces — ex-Rays OF Carl Crawford, LHP J.P. Howell and LHP Scott Kazmir, along with top baseball executive Andrew Friedman.

Crawford returns as one of the best players in Rays history, a topic covered in today's Tampa Bay Times.

Kazmir was once one of the Rays' best pitchers, and he will be on the mound tonight against Rays LHP Matt Moore.

I'll post lineups here when available.
