iPads are coming to Major League Baseball!

- "I think any of us, all of us, have the potential to win and compete for the Cy Young." - Chris Archer on the Rays rotation

Chris Archer was hit by a line drive off Rene Rivera's bat in a backfield game. The Rays played the scrimmage after their trip to Dunedin was expected to be rained out. (He's fine).

- Speaking of Rivera, today is the deadline to cut non-guaranteed contracts by only playing 1/4 of the salary.

- The Charlotte County Family YMCA and the Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity will be recognized during an onfield ceremony before today's game. Each organization will receive a $5,000 donation from the Rays Baseball Foundation. [tampabay.com]

- Roger Mooney reports the Rays will not have a "bullpen day" starting Erasmo Ramirez when the need arises, and will instead use a spot starter from Durham.

- With the rotation set with only four men, here are comments from those who missed out:

- No one has more doubles in the Grapefruit League this pre-season than the Rays.

- Something you should already know, the Rays expect to see Motter in the Bigs sooner than later.
