For starters, Rays vs. Marlins, seeking to avoid 10th straight loss
UPDATE, 2:15: RHP Jeremy Hellickson (right elbow surgery) is set to make the first of three planned rehab starts on Saturday for Class A Charlotte in Tampa, and C Ryan Hanigan (hamstring) may catch him. ....
DEVELOPING: Having lost nine straight games and assumed the worst record in the majors at 23-37, the Rays will try, again, to stop their slide in a 4:10 game against the Marlins.
The Rays will send RHP Jake Odorizzi to the mound against Miami's Jacob Turner.
There will be a moment of silence before the game - at 3:57 - in honor of senior adviser Don Zimmer, who died Wednesday night at age 83.
While the Rays showed some signs of offense Wednesday - their three first-inning runs were more than their total from the last four games - they couldn't hold the lead.
