Alex Cobb will start for the Rays with Blake Snell set to follow at some point as the duo will put in their final performances before the regular season commences on Sunday.

Leading off once again for the Rays will be Corey Dickerson, he’ll be the designated hitter. In the outfield from left to right will be Mallex Smith, Kevin Kiermaier, and Steven Souza.

Meanwhile in the infield from left to right will be Daniel Robertson, Tim Beckham, Brad Miller, and Logan Morrison with Derek Norris behind the plate.

Evan Longoria was held out of the lineup as he is dealing with a stiff neck. Kevin Cash says he’ll be ready to goon Sunday.

The Rays still have some final roster decisions to make over the next 48 hours. They currently still have a full 40-man roster but we already know they’ll need to make room for at least three players and possible a forth depending on how the team wants to proceed with Peter Bourjos.
