Rays Spring Training 2012: Tampa Bay To Open Grapefruit League Schedule With Weekend Series Against Twins

The 2012 Grapefruit League schedule begins on Saturday, and the Tampa Bay Rays will be opening the slate against the Minnesota Twins on the road in Fort Meyers, Florida, before the two teams travel to play in Port Charlotte on Sunday. Both games are scheduled for 1:05 p.m.

David Price will be getting the start for the Rays on Saturday, but will only be pitching one inning in the opener. As expected, a cavalcade of relievers are to follow in the remaining innings.

The bruise on third baseman Evan Longoria's has gone away but he will not play in either game this weekend according to reports. He will be making his debut Monday when the Rays play the Baltimore Orioles.
