ST. PETERSBURG The Rays open a 10-game homestand tonight with the White Sox (34-48). It is part of their run through the soft underbelly of the AL scheduled that includes four games with the Twins and three more with the Astros.

Evan Longoria returns to third base tonight.  Ben Zobrist, struggling through a 1-for-19 slide, has the night off.

Alex Cobb threw his first bullpen since taking a line drive off the right side of his head June 15. He said he felt fine. No timetable for his return, though Cobb did say he passed the first round of his concussion tests.

Here are tonight’s lineups:

De Aza LF
Ramirez SS
Rios RF
Dunn DH
Keppinger 1B
Gillaspie 3B
Beckham 2B
Phegley C
Tekotte CF

Axelrod RHP (3-4, 4.57)

Jennings CF
Joyce LF
Longoria 3B
Loney 1B
Myers RF
Scott DH
Escobar SS
Molina C
Johnson 2B

Hellickson RHP (7-3, 4.90)
