Mitch Talbot pitches for the second time this week, but his first start of the spring. Let's hope he follows in the steps of fellow Rays starters: Carlos Hernandez, Wade Davis and Jeff Niemann who've combined for six innings of shutout ball.
Lance Cormier is battling for the final bullpen spot. J.P. Howell makes his first and maybe last appearance for the Rays before heading to the World Baseball Classic
Pat Burrell faces his former team for the first time.
R.J.'s spring crush, Ray Olmedo, makes the start at short stop.
