Rest for Navarro

Greetings from the Trop. Marc Lancaster is off today, and I’ll be reporting on the middle game of the Rays’ three-game series with the Blue Jays.

All-Star catcher Dioner Navarro is out for at least the start of tonight’s game. He suffered cramping in both hamstrings during a 6-2 loss to the Jays on Tuesday night and left in the sixth inning. An MRI on Wednesday showed no serious injury, and Navarro will be available for late-inning work if needed, manager Joe Maddon said. His status is day-to-day

With Evan Longoria and Carl Crawford on the disabled list and Navarro on the bench, the Rays don’t exactly get to go with their A lineup against lefty David Purcey. Here are both lineups:

Inglett 2B
Scutaro 3B
Rios RF
Wells CF
Lind LF
Overbay 1B
Stairs DH
Barajas C
McDonald SS
(Purcey LHP)

Iwamura 2B
Upton CF
Pena 1B
Baldelli DH
Aybar 3B
Zobrist LF
Riggans C
Ruggiano RF
Bartlett SS
(Garza RHP)
