Rays 8/20/12 Starting Lineup:
Noteworthiness: First baseman Carlos Pena, right fielder Matt Joyce, and defacto DH Evan Longoria are getting the day off in game one of this three game set against the Royals. In their place are Jeff Keppinger, Sam Fuld, and Ben Zobrist. Elliot Johnson will also get the start at short. Luke Scott is expected to be reactivated prior to tomorrow nights game. Whispers have Sean Rodriguez being optioned to Triple-A (at least until September 1 when the rosters are expanded) in order to make room for Scott on the 25-man roster.
