For starters: Rays vs. Blue Jays, with Odorizzi on mound

Published May 6, 2017

UPDATE, 2:10: After testing his sore right hand, Kiermiaer will be in the lineup, though said he will be "Moises Alou-ing it" and keeping two fingers off the bottom of the bat barrel and use padding. ... Cash did drop Kiermaier to 8th to limit his at-bats. ... RHP Erasmo Ramirez was reinstated from the paternity list after the birth of his daughter, Addison Maree, and LHP Justin Marks was DFA'd, even though he had an option remaining. ... Cash said he did not think Liriano was throwing at Kiermaier last night.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Dickerson DH,
Miller 2b,
Longoria 3b,
LoMo 1b,
Souza RF,
Rasmus lf,
Beckham SS,
Kiermaier cf,
Norris c,
Odorizzi p

And here is the Jays lineup, with ex-Rays C Luke Maile getting a start:
Pillar cf
Carrera lf
Bautista rf
Morales dh
Smoak 1b
Travis 2b
Goins ss
Barney 3b
Maile c
Estrada p

DEVELOPING: After letting another game get away late, the Rays are back on the field this afternoon to take on the Blue Jays again, 4:10 first pitch.

RHP Jake Odorizzi, who made a successful albeit abbreviated return on Monday in Miami, will be on the mound for the Rays.

RHP Marco Estrada, who tends to pitch well against the Rays, is starting for Toronto.

The big question for the Rays is the status of CF Kevin Kiermaier, who left Friday's game after being hit on the right hand by a pitch.
