Os/Rays lineups and pregame tidbits

*Jim Johnson will pitch an inning for Class-A Advanced Frederick tonight since Double-A Bowie is on the road. If all goes well he will throw two innings on Tuesday.

*Brian Roberts is feeling good and will continue to be in the lineup as long as he’s feeling physically up for it. Buck Showalter said he checks in with Roberts regularly and so far, so good.

*Showalter wanted to get Michael Gonzalez in last night’s game given what happened the last time he was on the mound at Tropicana Field. If you remember, Gonzalez blew a save here in the Opening Day series and narrowly pulled off another. Showalter thought it was important for him to go out and pitch well, as he did with last night’s scoreless inning.
