Marlins Vs. Rays: Matt Joyce Scratched From Lineup Due To Illness

In a late roster move, the Tampa Bay Rays have taken Matt Joyce out of Sunday's lineup due to "flu-like symptoms". Joyce was hoping to play through it, however it became too much for him to fight through.

The lineup has been shuffled around to accomodate the late move, with Hideki Matsui getting a rare start in left field to make up for Joyce's absence. Here is the full, updated lineup from Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
