Injury-weakened Rays to start relievers against Orioles

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- To compare the relative chaos of the starting rotations for Tampa Bay and Baltimore entering the weekend: The Rays are starting three straight relievers as part of a continuing experiment and the Orioles are countering with ... TBA.

The Orioles (16-34) have the second-worst team ERA in baseball at 5.13 and went into Thursday's games having allowed a majors-high 495 hits. That TBA is expected to be rookie David Hess, who will make his third career start, two weeks after making his debut against the Rays.

The Rays (23-25) are a bit more complicated, battling all kinds of injuries to their starting rotation, which now has more relievers than actual starters.
