Weather has a case of the Mondays

It's raining pretty heavily this morning in Port Charlotte. Forecasts say it's supposed to clear about noon, but that may not be in time to keep today's minor-league games against the Red Sox Twins from being rained out.

If they aren't, here are the planned lineups for Tampa Bay's teams. Upper teams are scheduled to play in Port Charlotte with the Class A teams down in Fort Myers. (Substitutions in parentheses and, unless noted, planned for the fifth inning. And, yes, some of these lineups have 10 batters.)

TRIPLE-A
Fernando Perez lf, Angel Chavez 2b, Justin Ruggiano rf, Chris Richard 1b, Ryan Shealy dh, Chris Nowak 3b, Rashad Eldridge cf, Chris De La Cruz, ss, Drew Anderson dh (Emeel Salem, Cody Strait and Jose Lobaton are the subs. No definite substitution plans.)

DOUBLE-A
John Matulia cf (Anthony Scelfo), Matt Hall (Omar Luna), Greg Sexton 3b (dh in 6th), Matt Fields 1b (Henry Wrigley), Matt Sweeney dh (3b in 6th), Cody Cipriano 2b, Stephen Vogt c (Ian Paxton), Ryan Royster rf (Jason Corder), Reid Fronk lf

HIGH-CLASS A
Dustin Biell rf (K.D. Kang), Ty Morrison lf (Chris Murrill), Tim Beckham ss, Eli Sonoqui dh, Jake Jefferies c (Tyler Hauschild), Isaias Velasquez cf, Brett Nommensen dh, Robi Estrada 2b, Michael Sheridan 1b, Shawn Williams 3b (Jeremy Beckham)

LOW-CLASS A
D.J. Jones lf (Ruben Contreras), Todd Glaesmann cf, Tyler Bortnick 2b (Elias Otero), Mark Thomas c (Mayobanex Acosta), Ryan Wiegand 1b (Jeff Malm), Kyle Spraker 3b (Eugene Glynn), Burt Reynolds dh, Tomas Francisco dh, Felix Gonzalez ss, Brian Bryles rf (Jason Patton)

Interesting that Morrison is with the high-A guys. From the looks of it, most of the low-A guys are ticketed for short-season ball, but the high-A guys are full-seasoners. I wonder if the Rays might skip Morrison over Hudson Valley and assign him to Bowling Green.
