Will Rhymes returns to the lineup and Alex Cobb returns to the rotation this afternoon against the visiting Braves.

Rhymes, drilled on his right forearm by a 95 mph fastball Wednesday night, plays his first game since passing out on the field moments later.

Cobb, whose rookie season came to a sudden end last August when he had surgery to remove a blockage near his first right rib and the rib itself, rejoins the rotation in place of Jeff Niemann, who fractured his right fibula Monday in Toronto.

The Rays look to snap a two-game losing streak. The Braves, who lead the NL East, are looking for their third straight win.

Here is the Rays lineup:

Zobrist RF
Upton CF
Joyce LF
Peña 1B
Scott DH
Rodriguez 3B
Rhymes 2B
Johnson SS
Gimenez C

Cobb P
