Joel Peralta and Kyle Farnsworth rejoin the bullpen tonight, Peralta after serving an eight-game suspension for having pine tar inside his glove, and Farnsworth after missing the first 77 games of the season because of a right elbow strain.

David Price, who left Friday’s game before the start of the eighth inning because of lower back stiffness, said his back feels fine and he expects to throw his normal bullpen Sunday.

Evan Longoria played catch with head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield, and Sam Fuld and Matt Joyce shagged fly balls in the outfield.

The Rays will try win on consecutive days since June 9 and 10 when they were in the process of sweeping the Marlins in Miami tonight when they meet the Tigers in a game carried regionally on FOX.

Jeremy Hellickson returns from the disabled list after missing two starts because of right shoulder fatigue.

It’s turn back the clock night at the Trop as the Rays will wear uniforms based on some of those worn around the majors in 1979 and Earth, Wind & Fire will play the postgame concert.

Here are the lineups:

Jackson CF
Berry LF
Cabrera 3B
Fielder 1B
Young DH
Avila C
Boesch RF
Peralta SS
Santiago 2B

Porcello RHP (5-5, 4.71)

Jennings LF
Peña 1B
Upton CF
Scott DH
Zobrist RF
Conrad 3B
Lobaton C
