DEVELOPING: The Rays look to continue their latest hot streak as they go for the three-game sweep of the struggling White Sox today, and they will have David Price on the mound trying to do so.

Price will make his second start following a seven-week stint on the DL, having thrown seven strong innings Tuesday in Houston, striking out 10 while using only 70 pitches.

The White Sox are starting LHP John Danks, who has been trouble for the Rays in the past.

Evan Longoria is expected to be back at third base for a third consecutive game, having torn the plantar fascia in his right foot last Friday.

Lineups when available.
