UPDATE, 11:24: Molina is playing because there is more of a comfort factor with Hernandez.

UPDATE, 11:08: The Rays lineup has Longoria at 3B - Maddon had planned to ask if he wanted to DH - and thus Luke Scott at DH. Also, Jose Molina playing a day game after a night game.

Here is the lineup:
Joyce lf
Jennings cf
Zobrist 2b
Longoria 3b
Loney 1b
Myers rf
Scott dh
Molina c
Escobar ss
Hernandez p

And here is the Jays lineup, with Jose Reyes back off the disabled list:
Reyes ss
Bautista rf
Encarnacion 3b
Lind 1b
Cabrera dh
Rasmus cf
Davis lf
Thole c
Bonifacio 2b
Dickey p

DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to make it a sweep of the previously red-hot Blue Jays in today's 12:10 matinee series finale.

As if the early start time isn't enough of an issue for the Rays, they will also have to deal with the frustration of chasing Jays starter R.A. Dickey's knuckleball. One way to combat that is to have their switch-hitters bat right-handed.

The Rays will start Roberto Hernnandez, who has shown some improvement by using a wider array of pitches.

Lineups when available.
