The Rays will send Trevor Richards to the mound tonight as they seek to score a second straight win over the Oriole
UPDATE, 5:49: Garcia rejoined the team and said he felt 100 percent after his 1-game rehab at Durham and expects to be play on Saturday when eligible to be activated. ... Several players were enjoying showing off their Players Weekend custom cleats. ... Cash said they are looking for Richards to throw up to 90 pitches tonight.
Here is the Orioles lineup:
DEVELOPING: The Rays waited out the Orioles and a 2-plus hour rain delay on Thursday to win the opener of the four-game series.
Richards was just okay in his first start for the Rays on Sunday, having been called up after making a couple appearances at Triple-A Durham following his July 31 acquisition from Miami, along with Nick Anderson.
It has been raining much of the day in Baltimore, but forecasts call for it to end by game time and clear out. Temperatures will be about 20 degrees cooler than on Thursday, with a first-pitch forecast for 70 degrees.
The Rays made one roster move today, reinstating lefty Anthony Banda from the 60-day injured list as his thrice-extended rehab assignment ended.
To make room for him on the 40-man roster, the Rays shifted infielder Brandon Lowe from the 10- to the 60-day injured list. Lowe, who has been sidelined since fouling a ball off his right leg July 2, is out for the rest of the regular season after straining his left quad on Wednesday so the move doesn’t affect his status.
