The Rays look to split the first full month of the 2013 season tonight, in the first game of a three game set against the Kansas City Royals. Expect a few familiar faces in the Royals lineup tonight — James Shields will get the start on the mound while Elliot Johnson will be playing second and hitting ninth.

Rays 4/30/13 Starting Lineup

Jennings CF
Joyce LF
Zobrist RF
Longoria 3B
Loney 1B
Escobar SS
Scott DH
Molina C
Roberts 2B
Cobb RHP


  • As expected, the Rays DFA’d Shelley Duncan in order to make room for Luke Scott who was reactivated from the DL today. Robbie Knopf of Rays Colored Glasses posed the question: With Duncan ostensibly getting ye old heave ho, Could the Rays be interested in Casper Wells? He makes some good points. 
  • Yunel Escobar and Jose Molina are also both back in lineup after a pair of respective minor hamstring injuries.
  • Haven’t checked out our series preview? Well, what are you waiting for?
  •  So uh…where are you planning on watching the game tonight? Some of us will be at the Old Northeast Tavern, and we’d love to hang out, drink some beers, and have some fun!
