Updated pitching schedule

For those of you scoring at homere, here’s a more up-to-date pitching schedule for the next few days. The one notable change on the Rays’ side is Jeff Niemann will start Sunday rather than Wade Davis, which makes sense. I wonder if they were just accidentally flip-flopped before.

Friday at Reds
Rays—Jackson, Hammel, Sonnanstine, Balfour, Orvella, Houser
Reds—Homer Bailey, Edinson Voloquez, Justin Lehr, Marcus McBeth, Tom Shearn, Scott Sauerbeck, Adam Pettyjohn

Saturday vs. Blue Jays
Rays—Shields, Talbot, Reyes, Miller, Wheeler
Blue Jays—Dustin McGowan, Casey Janssen, Jeremy Cummings, Ryan Ketchner, John Parrish, Tracy Thorpe, Randy Wells, Jesse Carlson

Sunday at Pirates
Rays—Niemann, Davis, Ryu, Munter, Birkins
Pirates—Paul Maholm, John Van Benschoten, Josh Sharpless, Brian Rogers, Jaret Wright, John Grabow, Matt Capps and apparently today’s scheduled Pittsburgh starter, who was scratched, Tom Gorzelanny.

Monday at Tigers

Tuesday vs. Twins

The Rays’ travel squad for tomorrow’s game in Sarasota features most of the regulars: Carl Crawford, B.J. Upton, Carlos Pena, Aki Iwamura, Jason Bartlett, Jonny Gomes and Evan Longoria all will be there. It sounds like Rocco Baldelli and Cliff Floyd both will make their spring debut Saturday.

Dioner Navarro is being held back a bit and likely won’t start until Monday, according to Joe Maddon. The Rays want to make sure his throwing is up to full-speed after he missed time early in camp to be with his ailing mother in Venezuela. Shawn Riggans will start behind the plate tomorrow.
