Coming off a 3-2 loss to the Phillies in Friday’s spring opener, the Rays are on the road tonight for their first meeting with former coach and now Twins manager Rocco Baldelli.
Here are a couple of notes:
* Ryan Yarbrough will be on the mound, likely working an inning.
* Brandon Lowe will get his first experience at first base, as the Rays are talking about using him, Ji-Man Choi and Yandy Diaz there.
* Top starters Blake Snell and Charlie Morton will throw live batting practices in Port Charlotte this morning, with the potential to move into games by the end of the week.
Here is the Rays lineup for tonight:
B. Lowe 1b
Also slated to pitch for the Rays: Faria, Beeks, Pagan, Castillo, Kolarek, Cloyd, Milner, Franco, Moats, O’Brien.
