Regulars tomorrow, not Saturday

We don’t have a batting order yet, but Joe Maddon said the Rays will go with what amounts to their regular starting lineup in tomorrow’s Grapefruit League opener. In whatever order they end up, it will be:

C Dioner Navarro, 1B Ty Wigginton, 2B Jorge Cantu, SS Ben Zobrist, 3B Akinori Iwamura, LF Carl Crawford, CF Rocco Baldelli, RF Delmon Young, DH Greg Norton

It sounds like the only one of that group who might get some time Saturday in Dunedin would be Norton. The rest definitely won’t make the trip to play the Blue Jays. In that game, you can expect to see B.J. Upton—probably at 2B—Jonny Gomes, Josh Paul, Carlos Pena, etc.

Expect the starters to stay in long enough to get two plate appearances.
