For starters: Rays vs. White Sox with Odorizzi on the mound



UPDATE, 5:18: With the Rays in the middle of their longest streak of games without an off day this season, a fifth starter was required to supplement the four-man rotation. The team named Erasmo Ramirez as the starter for Saturday's game against the White Sox. It will be the first start of the season for Ramirez, who has made three appearances so far in relief.

"They way Erasmo is ... he's capable of throwing five innings on 50 pitches. We've seen him do it last year," manager Kevin Cash said. "His efficiency sometimes is kind of off the charts."


DEVELOPING: Here is the Rays' lineup for today's contest against the White Sox, the first of a three-game series:

2B Logan Forsythe

RF Brandon Guyer

3B Evan Longoria

1B Steve Pearce

LF Desmond Jennings

DH Steven Souza Jr.

SS Tim Beckham

CF Kevin Kiermaier

C Curt Casali

RHP Jake Odorizzi


And for the White Sox:

RF Adam Eaton

SS Jimmy Rollins

1B Jose Abreu

3B Todd Frazier

LF Melky Cabrera

2B Brett Lawrie

DH Avisail Garcia

C Alex Avila

LHP Chris Sale
