Meet your opening-day Rays.

No giant surprises here after Rene Rivera was sent packing. The Rays will have a hefty bullpen.

Per RaysBaseball.com, here’s who’s with the big club — for now.

Starting pitchers: Chris Archer, Drew Smyly, Jake Odorizzi, and Matt Moore.

Bullpen: Alex Colome, Enny Romero, Steve Geltz, Danny Farquhar, Dana Eveland, Xavier Cedeno, Ryan Webb, and Erasmo Ramirez.

Catcher: Curt Casali and Hank Conger.

Infield: Evan Longoria, Brad Miller, Tim Beckham, Logan Forsythe, Steve Pearce, Logan Morrison.

Outfield: Corey Dickerson, Desmond Jennings, Kevin Kiermaier, Steven Souza, Jr., and Brandon Guyer.

Mikie Mahtook was sent to Triple-A, and Brad Boxberger and Alex Cobb were placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Joe remains fascinated by 32-year-old left-hander Dana Eveland. The Rays are his 10th team, and he had a heck of a spring. He sure seems like the early leader to be the Rays’ annual miracle bullpen find.

    Hey joes. Thanks for the rays site. Now I can obsess over both joe sites with my local sports teams. But why only 4 guys in starting rotation? Is it all the days off the first month of the season?

    Yes, sir. –Joe
