New, 160 comments

Game Time: 1: 05 PM

TV/Radio: MLB Network/Sun Sports

Lineups:

Pitchers: LH Scott Kazmir, RH Jason Isringhausen, LH Brian Shouse, RH Derek Rodriguez

Things to watch: How about the actual game? The Rays are on TV a limited number of times this spring and this happens to be one of them.

Of course, all eyes will be on the left arm of Scott Kazmir. Kaz makes his third start of the spring and should be good for around 65 pitches. Depending on which Kazmir shows up that could be anywhere between 3-5 innings of work. Keep an eye on slider usage.

Jason Isringhausen makes his second appearance in a Rays uniform. Izzy is technically battling for a spot in the bullpen, but will face hitters in a game situation for only the second time since August 16th.

With a decision on Eduardo Morlan due at some point, this could be the last time we see Derek Rodriguez pitch for the Rays.
