3B Evan Longoria will accompany the team on the upcoming road trip to New York and Miami because his rehab from a partially torn left hamstring has progressed to where he’s working daily on baseball skills.

So, that’s good news on the injury front.

Longoria could head for a minor league rehab assignment by mid-month and could rejoin the team by the end of the month.

Joe Maddon said LF Desmond Jennings (Left knee) will rejoin the team on the road trip and could be back during the first leg when the Rays play three games at Yankee Stadium.

As for tonight, the Rays begin a three-game series with the Orioles. Both teams share the lead in American League East, yet both are struggling.

The Orioles bring a five-game losing streak into the series while the rays have lost three straight.

David Price faces Wei-Yin Chen in a battle of left-handers.

Here are the lineups:

ORIOLES
Andino 2B
Tolleson LF
Hardy SS
Jones CF
Wieters C
Reynolds 1B

Betemit 3B
