Matt Moore is with the team in Cincinnati. He told the media that he is hoping to avoid surgery and will try to play catch in 3-5 days to see how it feels…Another interleague series on the road means another chance for David Price to hit his first career home run. Heading into tonight’s game, Price is 2-24 with 2 singles, 2 walks, and 11 strikeouts. He hasn’t had a hit since 2010…The Rays are 0-3 all time in Great American Ballpark, having been swept there in 2005.

  1. Rob says:

    I like this line-up - you have a guy at the top who gets on base and Desmond has gap power hitting second. I like this line-up a little better though:

    Loney (can handle the bat - probably best situational hitter)
    Myers (too much power to be hitting 6th)

  2. Dave L says:

    Interesting lineup.

    No Dejesus versus a RHP? Is he under the weather? Maybe

    Maybe cuz hes the only one with extensive record vs Cueto with 22 AB and a .227/.292/.273 slash.

    I think the holdup on MM is he's in denial and the Rays aren't pushing him. He's is going to miss a whole year, whats a week or 2? Im not faulting him mind you.

    My guess is he resigningly goes under the knife within the next couple of weeks.
