DEVELOPING: The Rays are back in Port Charlotte today for a 1:05 game vs. a Red Sox split squad.

RHP Alex Cobb, who has hold on the No. 4 spot in the rotation, will make his first appearance of the spring, looking to work primarily on fastball command.

Ben Zobrist is expected back in the lineup after taking Sunday off; he had hoped to play everyday this week before leaving to join the U.S. team for the World Baseball Classic.

Lineup shortly.
