The Rays’ lineup today could be the Opening Day lineup in Boston if Josh Beckett is the Red Sox starter as expected.
Iwamura led off followed by Crawford, Longoria, Pena, Burrell, Navarro, Zobrist (center field), Gross, and Bartlett.
B.J. Upton went 1-for-3 in a Minor League game in Sarasota while playing five innings in center field; he will be used as the DH in a Minor League game Sunday.
Bullpen hopeful Jason Isringhausen allowed two runs on three hits and a walk in one inning of work Saturday. He will pitch an inning Sunday, thereby going back-to-back days for the first time this spring.
