The Rays have their only split squad day of the spring today when half the team stays back to play the visiting Tigers and the other half heads to Fort Myers to play – who else? – the Twins.

LHP David Price is scheduled to start against the Tigers and is expected to go three innings. RHP Jeremy Hellickson will follow Price and is scheduled for three innings.

RHP Chris Archer faces the Twins.

1B Carlos Peña is making the trip to Fort Myers, an unusual move for a veteran. But Peña said it’s because he and bench coach Dave Martinez, who will manage the travel squad, are tight.

C Stephen Vogt, who is making waves in camp with his bat (.545 batting average), starts against the Twins.

LHP Jake McGee, sidelined with a bruised elbow, will follow Archer and make his spring debut.

The Tigers are bringing RF Brennan Boesch, 3B Miguel Cabrera, DH Alex Avila and LF Delmon Young.

Here are the Rays lineups:
