UPDATE, 4:17: Cash said he needs to find ways to get Guyer involved more since he has been swinging well and a number of Rays are struggling. ... He also said he is leaning towards making Souza the No. 5 hitter, which means dropping Jennings to 7 when they face a lefty. .... Boxberger threw a 30-pitch bullpen and will throw another early next week and then advance to two live batting practice sessions. ... Cobb and Whitley also threw bullpen sessions.
