For staters: Rays vs. Red Sox



UPDATE, 10:13: Zobrist is due back in camp on Sunday, and could play vs. the Red Sox. Maddon said he wants to get Zobrist, who saw limited duty with Team USA, playing regularly, and will do the same with C Jose Molina, who is on the Puerto Rico team, when he returns. Closer Fernando Rodney has been getting plenty of work with the Dominican team. ... Maddon said there was some progress for OF Sam Fuld regarding the tightness in his right hamstring, but a return is still unlikely until the middle or end of next week.

UPDATE, 8:37: Here is the Red Sox lineup, with the alwasy volatile Alfredo Aceves on the mound:

Holt 2b
Iglesias ss
Bradley cf
Lavarnway c
Overbay 1b
Gomez dh
Sutton 3b
Linares lf
Bemudez rf
Aceves p

UPDATE, 8:34: The Rays have their annual meeting with MLB security personnel this morning.

Here is today's lineup, with Longoria off and Rodriguez getting a rare infield start:

Jennings cf
Rodriguez 2b
Joyce rf
Scott dh
Loney 1b
Roberts 3b
Anderson lf
Gimenez c
Figueroa ss
Hernandez p

DEVELOPING: The Rays are in Port Charlotte again today, hosting the Red Sox at 1:05.

RHP Roberto Hernandez, making a strong bid for a spot in the rotation, will be on the mound.

Ben Zobrist should be back with the team soon as the U.S. team was eliminated Friday from the WBC.

Lineups soon.
