Rays Report

Tampa Bay Rays: Callup Josh Lueke wears David Price uniform, confusion ensues; Rays have one of most successful road trips in club history

Price check?

RHP Josh Lueke's batting practice jersey didn't make it to Oakland after his hurried callup from Triple-A Durham, so he took teammate David Price up on his offer of a loaner Wednesday. That may have been a bit confusing for fans who called him over for autographs, but Lueke joked it could work out well for him. "This is going to eBay," he said. "Maybe I'll try to get him to sign it first."

Today: Off

Next game: Friday vs. Orioles, 7:10, Tropicana Field, Sun Sports. Rays — Matt Moore (7-7, 4.01); Orioles — TBA
