News and a game

Getting a late start here.

Lots going on here as the Rays prepare to break camp after today's game with the Twins.

A few players mentioned they hope they don't get tickets as the speed up I-75 later this afternoon. The Rays have the day off tomorrow then fly to Philly Friday morning for an exhibition game with the Phillies that night.

The news ...

Jason Isringhausen is heading to the disabled list so he can continue to build up strength in his right arm.

No decision on the fifth starer.

No decision on the final outfielder, but it looks like they're leaning toward Matt Joyce since they are scheduled to face four righties in the first six games.

Second baseman Adam Kennedy was optioned to Triple A Durham, but will travel to Philly for the games Friday and Saturday.

As for the game ...

The Rays are down 1-0 in the middle of the third. James Shields has allowed four hits. Aki Iwamura beat out and infield single in the first for the Rays lone hit.
