Rays report: Rasmus debuts vs. Phillies in PC, 1:05



UPDATE, 9:23: Snell said he was slated to pitch Monday all along, so "the change" may have actually just been a communications mistake with the game notes. ... Odorizzi will pitch in a minor-league game on Monday, and won't be joining Team USA.

UPDATE, 8:44: The Rays changed plans an non-roster LHP Justin Marks will start today not Snell, who is here and playing ping-pong in the clubhouse.

Colby Rasmus, recovering from hip and core muscle surgery, will make his Rays debut today as DH and Kevin Kiermaier, with his 6-year, $53.5-million extension set to be finalized on Monday, is back in CF.

Rays lineup:
Dickerson LF,

Longoria 3b,
Miller 2b,
Rasmus DH,
Weeks 1b,
Beckham ss,
Souza RF,
