Tampa Bay Rays' Casey Kotchman, Felipe Lopez headed to Triple-A Durham

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said it is looking more and more like the bullpen will remain as it is, with Juan Cruz, Jake McGee and Cesar Ramos getting the last three spots and no acquisitions before rosters are set Thursday.

He hopes to make it official on Wednesday.

"It's becoming less up in the air,'' Maddon said. "These guys, I hate stringing them out like this. But it's getting very, very close and hopefully by tomorrow I'll be able to tell every one of them straight up what's going on. But it's looking a lot like what you're seeing right now.''

Maddon also said he heard that both 1B Casey Kotchman and INF Felipe Lopez, two veterans who were in camp on minor-league deals, will head to Triple-A Durham. "I think everything's going to work out okay there,'' Maddon said.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.

    The Lightning, with a win tonight, would match the best start in franchise history, 7-1-1 in the 2003-04 Cup season.

    TAMPA — Jameis Winston hadn't thrown in practice since he injured his right shoulder in Sunday's loss at Arizona, and with that uncertainty, a wide line of TV cameras and reporters' cellphones were all out Friday morning, recording the moment as Winston tested his shoulder with his first throws early in …
