Rays 7/22/14 Starting Lineup
- Jake Odorizzi is batting eighth tonight. Maddon did something similar last year with Jeremy Hellickson, and earlier this year with Cesar Ramos.
- The Rays are trying to become the fourth team to get to .500 after being 18 games under. Others: 1899 Louisville Colonels, 2004 Devil Rays, 2006 Marlins.
- Hellickson is expected to rejoin the rotation this weekend, but it won’t be Friday. David Price is listed as the starter that night, though the rest of series is TBA.
- The Rays have placed RHP Joel Peralta (illness) on the 15-day DL, retroactive to July 13. LHP Jeff Beliveau has been recalled for the fifth time this season and will take Peralta’s place in the bullpen.
