UPDATE, 12:15: Rays Glasnow (forearm strain) will throw a live BP on Tuesday in Port Charlotte, which could be his last thing before starting a short rehab, potentially rejoining team by second week of Sept. Cash said no timetable for Snell, but he is probably 10 days at least behind Glasnow, and Chirinos behind him.

UPDATE, 11:24: Wendle said he’s good to go and will be able to play back to back games, which he hasn’t done yet. Cash said they will have him cut way back on pre-game swings to keep the wrist feeling better. Also, that he’ll play primarily third base and shortstop as Sogard will stay at second. ... The Rays opted for Wendle rather than reliever because they have Monday off so, in theory, even if heavily used they will be fresh by Tuesday.

DEVELOPING: The Rays will look to bounce back from Saturday’s rough loss and put a good finish on their stretch of 21 straight games against teams with losing records in today’s 1:05 affair against the Orioles at Camden Yards.

The Rays are 13-7 thus far in the run against the Marlins, Blue Jays, Mariners, Padres, Tigers, Mariners again and Orioles. Their schedule gets notably tougher starting Tuesday, as they play at the Astros then return home to face the Indians. They also have series remaining with the Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees.

The Rays made a couple of roster moves for today’s game, with Jose Alvarado going on the injured list following his rough Saturday night outing and Joey Wendle being activated off the IL.

Diego Castillo is set to start for the Rays as the opener, with Jalen Beeks slated for bulk innings. The O’s are staring Dylan Bundy.
