Hank Conger

The Rays announced the opening day lineup for Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays and there was only one minor surprise.

The one question that was still up in the air for opening day was who would catch Chris Archer, Curt Casali or Hank Conger. It turns out Kevin Cash will go with the newly acquired Conger:

  1. Logan Forsythe, 2B
  2. Logan Morrison, 1B
  3. Evan Longoria, 3B
  4. Corey Dickerson, DH
  5. Desmond Jennings, LF
  6. Brad Miller, SS
  7. Steven Souza, RF
  8. Kevin Kiermaier, CF
  9. Hank Conger

Cash told the media the decision to start Conger was based on the matchup with Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman, noting that Archer would be comfortable pitching to either catcher.

    Fun & useless trivia: the Rays will be the first team in MLB history to bat two guys named Logan back to back in a game.
