Lots of news today.

Jeremy Hellickson is headed to the disabled list with fatigue in his right shoulder. He will miss at least two starts, beginning with Wednesday’s start against the Nationals here at Nationals Park.

Chris Archer has been called up from Triple A Durham and will replace Hellickson in the rotation.

Evan Longoria provided an update on his injured left hamstring, saying it needs more time to heal. He’s not sure of a date for his return. Rays manager Joe Maddon said the team will have a better idea on how much more time Longoria needs in “two or three days.”

Meanwhile, the Rays have a game tonight against the AL East-leading Nats, and here are the lineups:

RAYS
Jennings LF
Peña 1B
Upton CF
Joyce RF
Zobrist 2B
Joyce RF
Lobaton C
Johnson SS
Rhymes 3B
Price P

NATIONALS
Espinosa 2B

Zimmerman 3B
Morse RF
LaRoche 1B
Desmond SS
