UPDATE, 11:20: Scheduled starter RHP Nathan Eovaldi was traded to the Red Sox this morning, so RHP Ryne Stanek will start on what is another bullpen day.

DEVELOPING: The Rays and Yankees are wrapping up their series today with a noon matinee at the Trop.

RHP Nathan Eovaldi, the subject of trade rumors in advance of Tuesday's deadline,  will be on the mound for the Rays, RHP Luis Cessa for the Yankees.

After the Rays hung on for a tense win Monday night, the Yankees rolled to a relatively uneventful 4-0 win on Tuesday.

Eovaldi takes the prep for the 12:10 assignment seriously, changing his sleep routine since his last start on Friday to go to bed and get up earlier, and said he planned to be at the Trop by 9 this morning so he can get his body active as he would for a night game.

The Yankees late Tuesday acquired LHP Zach Britton from Baltimore.
