Lineup, Hughes & Sanchez Up, Grilli & Martin On DL, Glasnow Sharp

Francisco Liriano (0-3, 4.22) goes against LHP Tyler Lyons (0-1, 3.00). Hey, another lefty! Frankie is still looking for win #1 in 2014. Lyons allowed two earned runs in six innings Monday night in New York, in his first start of the season and ninth of his career. He's filling the spot of Joe Kelly, on the DL with a strained left hamstring.

The lineup: Starling Marte LF, Josh Harrison 3B, Cutch CF, Gaby Sanchez 1B, Neil Walker 2B, Jose Tabata RF, Tony Sanchez C and Liriano P.  Guess Josh is the option when Pedro sits, nut in the two hole...?

The game begins at 4:05 and will be aired by Root Sports and 93.7 The Fan.

  • Russ Martin joined Jason Grilli on the DL. Tony and Jared Hughes are the call-ups. The Bucs solved their paperwork dilemma of yesterday by calling up Tony to replace Grilli, who is still backdated to Monday, and Jared to replace Martin, which makes everything kosher by the rulebook.
  • Tyler Glasnow gave up two hits and struck out six over five scoreless innings in his season debut before his Class A Bradenton club dropped a 13-4 decision at St. Lucie ( the bullpen didn't quite come through). Glasnow was held back in Pirate City while recovering from a tight back.
  • Ex-Bucs: RHP Chris Lereaux was called up by the Yankees.
