March

UPDATE, 9:32: Rodriguez said the Rays told him coming in to camp to expect to play more in the outfield, so he has been prepared. And he likes center just fine. "I'll do my best, try to put a good either Desmond (Jennings) or Sam Fuld impression out there.''

UPDATE, 9:22: Orioles lineup doesn't have too many familiar names:

Casilla 2b,
Flaherty ss,
Machado 3b,
Pridie rf,
Dickerson cf,
Robinson dh,
Ishikawa 1b,
Exposito c,
Avery lf,
Chen p

UPDATE, 8:37: The Rays have their annual meeting with the players union this morning, which will run right into batting practice.

UPDATE, 8:33: Sean Rodriguez will be in centerfield today as the Rays continue to explore options and the extent of their versatility.

The lineup:
Zobrist rf
Johnson lf
Longoria 3b
Escobar ss
Roberts 2b
Molina c
Duncan dh
Loney 1b
Rodriguez cf

DEVELOPING: The Rays are back in Port Charlotte today for a 1:05 p.m. game against the Orioles.

RHP Alex Cobb will make the start, with Fernando Rodney and Juan Sandoval among the schedueld relievers.
