The Tampa Bay Rays are slated to start a four game series against the Tigers tonight, although rainy weather in the Detroit area might have other ideas. In any case, below is the starting lineup for the Rays, and a few pregame notes.
Rays 6/15/17 Starting Lineup
— Tim Beckham, tending to his sore knee, is out of the lineup again tonight for the Rays. Michael Martinez will get the start at second base, while Daniel Robertson will handle the shortstop duties. With a left-hander on the mound Friday, Beckham will likely return to the lineup then.
— After a spate of poor play in the series finale Wednesday night, Jesus Sucre will takeover behind the plate tonight, not Derek Norris.
