Rays release 2016 spring training schedule

ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays aren't sure where they will wrap up spring training, given the potential for a late-March trip to Cuba, but they will start exhibition play March 2 in Port Charlotte against new manager Dusty Baker's Nationals.

The Rays on Friday released their 29-game spring schedule that, subject to change, includes 15 games at the Charlotte Sports Park and three road games in the Tampa Bay area — at Dunedin (Blue Jays, March 13, split squad); Clearwater (Phillies, March 17); and Tampa (Yankees, March 24).

Tickets for Rays home games, priced $10-$29 ($15-$32 for March 12-13 games), go on sale Dec. 4 via raysbaseball.com/spring. A Cyber Monday presale starts at 10 a.m. Monday, though with a premium of at least $10 per ticket. There are also season, three-pack and group pricing plans, with information on the website.

The Rays open camp with a Feb. 21 first workout for pitchers and catchers, Feb, 26 for the full squad. MLB officials are working to secure government approvals for the Cuba trip, which is expected to include two games and three days.
