DEVELOPING: The Rays are looking to sweep the Yankees this afternoon before heading out for their 1-day trip to Kansas City.

RHP Alex Cobb, who has looked sharp but a bit short on stamina in his first two statrts since coming off the DL, will be on the mound for the Rays vs. Yankees RHP Ivan Nova, who has looked super when pitching vs. Tampa Bay.

The Rays, who lead the AL East by percentage points, have won the first two over the Yankees, combining solid starting pitching, clutch hitting and spectacular defense.

The Rays announced late Saturday that RHP Roberto Hernandez would go back into the rotation and strart Tuesday vs. the Angels. There also should be clarification today about the schedule for LHP Matt Moore, who threw a simulated game on Saturday.

Lineups when available.
