After a well deserved off-day on Thursday, the Tampa Bay Rays will begin a three-game series against the New York Yankees tonight. The Rays are coming off a 4–2 road trip, that included series wins in Boston and Cleveland.
Rays 5/19/17 Starting Lineup
— Earlier we wrote that Brad Miller has been added to the 10-day DL with a lower abdominal strain. The Rays’ second baseman told Marc Topkin (Tampa Bay Times) that while no date has been set for him to resume baseball activities, he is aiming to be off the DL when he is eligible, next Friday.
— Expected to help the backend of the bullpen, the Rays announced today that RHP Shawn Tolleson had Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.
