Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - The Tampa Bay Rays set their roster for
Wednesday's American League wild card game against Cleveland and will keep
nine pitchers active.
Six of those pitchers are relievers, while rotation members Chris Archer and
Matt Moore will join Wednesday's scheduled starter Alex Cobb as part of the

McGee, righty setup man Joel Peralta, righty long man Jamey Wright and lefties
Alex Torres and Wesley Wright.
Wednesday's infield will consist of first baseman James Loney, Ben Zobrist at
second, Yunel Escobar at shortstop and third baseman Evan Longoria, while
eight active outfielders include Desmond Jennings, Wil Myers, Matt Joyce,
David DeJesus, Sam Fuld, Kevin Kiermaier, Kelly Johnson and Sean Rodriguez,
who can also serve as a backup infielder if necessary.
Jose Molina, Jose Lobaton and Chris Gimenez are the catchers and Delmon Young
is the designated hitter.
