Rays outfielder Manuel Margot is expected back in the lineup today against Yankees lefty starter Jordan Montgomery, per manager Kevin Cash, sitting out two games after he “tweaked his groin/quad a little bit.” … The Rays could have used top starter Tyler Glasnow today on his normal fifth day, but Cash said it was better to give him the benefit of extra rest and a Monday start against Texas. The Yankees could have done the same with their ace, Gerrit Cole, but also opted to hold him back for Monday, against the Blue Jays in Dunedin. … Reliever Hunter Strickland spent the spring and the alternate-site workouts living in a 28-foot trailer parked in Port Charlotte. He got called up a bit unexpected­ly Friday and for now is commuting until he relocates. “We’ll make it work,” he said. “We’ll figure it out and find a find a place out here.”
