The Rays are looking to bounce back tonight from Friday’s disappointing loss to the majors-worst Tigers.

They’ll have Ryan Yarbrough on the mound, coming off his career-best 8 2/3 inning outing in Seattle last Sunday, when he was pulled, as you may have heard, one out from a complete game shutout. The Tigers are starting veteran righty Jordan Zimmermann, who is coming off the injured list after dealing with a back/neck issue.

Also, the Rays have added Trevor Richards to the taxi squad in advance of being activated Sunday to work the bulk of the innnings. Richards was acquired July 31 from the Marlins along with Nick Anderson.
