Rays And Marlins Face Off As Spring Training Continues

Spring Training has now passed its halfway point, with 15 days remaining until regular season play. Today, the Rays will oppose Chris Volstad and the Florida Marlins in Jupiter, Florida.

Here is today's lineup, per Marc Topkin:

John Jaso C
E. Johnson CF
Manny Ramirez DH
Matt Joyce RF
Jose Lopez 3B
Casey Kotchman 1B
Sean Rodriguez 2B
Reid Brignac SS
Sam Fuld LF
Cory Wade P

Wade Davis will not be taking the mound, also per Topkin, because he is suffering from the flu. In his place, Cory Wade, one of the many bullpen contenders, will start things off, followed by Cesar Cabral, R.J. Swindle, and Rob Delaney.

The Rays also recently cut a number of players, including bullpen candidates Dirk Hayhurst and Matt Bush, as well as catcher Robinson Chirinos and outfielder Desmond Jennings.
