UPDATE (12:31 p.m.): Jayson Werth is a scratch because he tweaked his shoulder, according to Todd Zolecki. John Mayberry Jr. will take his place. Werth still hasn’t played a moment in the Grapefruit League.

It’s the first of seven meetings between the Phillies and Rays, the two teams who vied for the world championship last season. This season the Rays have a new weapon — one Phillies fans know extremely well. Pat Burrell will make a start at designated hitter today. The Rays will start Mitch Talbot. Meanwhile, the Phillies will start Kyle Kendrick, who is part of the Fight For Fifth. Drew Naylor, Clay Condrey, Scott Eyre and Brad Lidge alre also scheduled to pitch. For Naylor it’s a tune up for the World Baseball Classic. For the rest? Getting work in.

Your lineup: Rollins (SS) / Victorino (CF) / Ibanez (LF) / Howard (1B) / Mayberry (RF) / Dobbs (DH) / Cairo (2B) / Donald (3B) / Paulino (C).

You can watch this one on Comcast SportsNet and MLB Network.
