RH Jeremy Guthrie (1-4, 3.00)
Watch for …
Rested righty: Hellickson's start was pushed back two days so David Price and James Shields could remain on normal rest. He knows about standing around. He did a lot of it during his last start, when the Rays put up 19 hits in a 15-3 win over the Twins. He went 61/3 innings, allowing three runs and seven hits.
Hard-luck bird: Since the start of 2010, Guthrie has a 3.70 ERA but is 12-18. The Orioles have scored just 15 runs in his six starts this season.

Commercial of the day
Rays 3B Evan Longoria, right, has a prominent role in a Pepsi Max commercial that starts airing Monday. It's the second in the series playing off the movie Field of Dreams and also features former Rays manager Lou Piniella. Longoria emerges from the cornfield amid several Hall of Famers and heads to an empty Pepsi Max machine. He begins a rally drumbeat that ends with the Pepsi Max vendor arriving with refills.
Honor of the day
Shari Elliott of Bradenton will be the Rays' honorary bat girl as MLB raises awareness of breast cancer on Mother's Day. This is the third year MLB and its teams will honor fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrated a commitment to fighting it. Because the Rays are in Baltimore on Sunday, Elliott will serve May 15, when the Rays host the Orioles.
