Tampa Bay Rays

For starters: Rays at Twins, seeking to keep rolling into the break

Having won five in a row, the Rays open their last series before the All-Star break tonight in Minnesota with top starter LHP Blake Snell on the mound.

The Rays and Snell are still hoping he gets added to the AL All-Star team as a replacement, possibly in place of Cleveland's Trevor Bauer, who is slated to pitch Sunday for the Indians and thus likely would not be available on Tuesday.

The Rays are set to announce this afternoon that top prospect SS Willy Adames has been optioned to Triple-A, and what the counter move may be.

The Rays won't have to deal with former teammate Logan Morrison, as the Twins placed the first baseman/DH on the DL Thursday due to a left hip impingement.

Snell has been on an impressive roll, 8-1 with a 1.27 ERA over his last 10 starts.

The Twins are starting RHP Kyle Gibson.

Lineups when available.
