Monday's Tampa Bay Rays-New York Yankees game cancelled

Tonight's spring training game between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa has been cancelled due to inclement weather.

The game will not be made up.

Because of the cancellation, RHP James Shields will throw two innings in a simulated game Tuesday at Tropicana Field, where several Rays will be working out.

RHP Adam Russell and LHP Jake McGee, who were scheduled to throw the second of back-to-back games tonight, will also pitch.

Manager Joe Maddon said calling the game was the right decision, with his only disappointment that tonight was supposed to be a game where the regulars played late into the game.

Maddon said all that means is the regulars, like Evan Longoria, will play deeper into Wednesday's spring exhibition finale at Tropicana Field.

Maddon said those who were scheduled to play tomorrow in Fort Myers still will.
