Moore had no issues after Wednesday's bullpen session, putting him line to take the next step on Saturday. He was limited to just two starts last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery.

News
Rays infielder Tim Beckham is in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the A's. Beckham, who is making his first start since Saturday, will play second base while batting eighth. 

The former first-overall draft pick has struggled at the plate this season, and has just four hits in 30 at-bats this month. Logan Forsythe, the team's regular second baseman, will be the designated hitter on Friday.

News
Rays pitcher Alex Colome put in five scoreless innings of work in Thursday night's 3-0 win over the Athletics. 

Colome had a solid day on the mound, striking out three batters and walking one. He gave up four hits. This was a much better outing than Colome's previous two games, which saw him give up 11 combined earned runs.

"Can't say enough about Alex Colome, what he provided tonight," manager Kevin Cash said after the game, per MLB.com. "Kind of a bounce-back start for him. Really did a nice job of controlling the hitters."

Colome now has a 4.81 ERA for the season.

"Like a two-ball, one-strike [count], and I have to come in the middle and they got the chance to swing the bat," Colome said about being behind the hitter in his last start. "But tonight I'm attacking the zone. Throwing strikes, making my pitches. Nothing today any different. The only thing I did was be a little more aggressive, and more attacking the zone."

Colome's next start is projected for May 26 against the Mariners.

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Mariners.

Boxberger gave up two hits but was able to get out of the jam without allowing a run. This is Boxberger's seventh consecutive converted save opportunity. 

Boxberger now has a 1.13 ERA for the season.

News
Rays manager Kevin Cash has echoed the optimism expressed by Rays starter Drew Smyly in regard to the torn labrum that has the left-hander on the 60-day disabled list.

"There are so many different degrees to a shoulder issue," Cash told MLB Network Radio. "He met with doctors and rest and rehab is now a possibility."

Smyly is hopeful he can return to the mound at some point this season. He performed well in three starts before going down despite an 0-1 record, yielding just five runs on 10 hits in 16 2/3 innings while striking out 21.

News
With the Rays facing a left-hander on Friday, manager Kevin Cash has loaded his lineup with right-handed swingers.

Outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and David DeJesus are being held out of the lineup against the A's. Kiermaier had started nine straight games for the Rays, but will take a seat on Friday, despite the fact he actually has a higher batting average against lefties (.267) than righties (.232).

DeJesus meanwhile has been on a tear lately. He's batting an even .400 (10 for 25) over his current seven-game hitting streak. But he's been heavily shielded against southpaws this season, having just three at-bats against left-handed pitching. 

Joey Butler will enter the lineup and bat fifth while playing left field. Brandon Guyer moves up to the leadoff spot and will play center field on Friday.

News
Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi allowed two earned runs in Wednesday night's 2-1 losss against the Braves. 

Odorizzi gave up a run each in the third and sixth innings. He went six total innings and gave up four hits, two walks and struck out two batters. 

"You feel for him because he's pitched really well all year," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, via MLB.com. "At the same time, he's a pro. He gets it. He just keeps going out there giving us what we need."

This is Odorizzi's third loss in a row, even though he's had strong efforts in each game. His run support has been lacking, however, as the Rays have only scored a combined five runs in his last three starts. 

Odorizzi's next start is projected for May 25 against the Mariners.

Rays starter Erasmo Ramirez collected his second win of the season Tuesday night in Atlanta. 

Ramirez (2-1) issued a bases-loaded walk to Andrelton Simmons, allowed a run-scoring single to Cameron Maybin and a third run on a ground out -- all in the second frame. He was charged with three earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings of a 5-3 victory. Of his 80 pitches, 52 were strikes.

After allowing 15 earned runs over his first 5 1/3 innings pitched to start the season, Ramirez has settled down and permitted only six earned runs over his last 24 innings pitched. He will look to stay sharp Sunday at home against Oakland.

Rays infielder Nick Franklin is already contributing in just his second day back with the team after a stint on the disabled list, according to MLB.com.

"We had a great conversation today," said manager Kevin Cash. "Nick's been very in tune to what's going on here. Followed us a lot [while he was on the DL]. He's excited to join us. He's going to definitely have a valuable role for us."

Cash will rotate Franklin into the starting lineup to get him acclimated.

"We will definitely get him some starts simply because we've asked a lot of Logan [Forsythe] and Cabby [Asdrubal Cabrera] early on this year," Cash said. "So we want to keep them fresh. We'll work him in probably a couple of times a week. Factoring in on how some of the other guys are doing."
