Pitchers: RH Matt Garza

Things to watch: The Rays are bringing the regulars to Ft. Myers as they prepare for the season opener which is just seven days away.  Matt Garza is the starter and should go for most of the game.

B.J. Upton will play five innings in centerfield in the AAA game with Jeff Niemann making the start. It will be Niemann's last chance to impress the coaching staff and front office before a fifth starter will be named. The announcement could come as soon as today.
