• The Rays announced that Monday's Game 3 at Tropicana Field sold out on Friday, with the exception of a few scattered single seats. Tickets for Game 4 are still available at raysbaseball.com.
• Julianna Zobrist, wife of Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist and a Christian alternative recording artist, will perform the national anthem before Game 3.
• Six players on the Rays' active roster were seen at Sunday's optional workout at Tropicana Field: Longoria, Kelly Johnson, Desmond Jennings, Chris Archer, Jeremy Hellickson and Cobb. Longoria fielded a few ground balls at third base, while Johnson worked out in left field in case he's called upon to play there Monday.
• A few players who ended the season on the Rays' active September roster also showed up at the Trop on Sunday afternoon. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi threw a simulated game to infielder Tim Beckham and outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and Freddy Guzman.
Odorizzi said he was just trying to stay ready in case there's an injury or an open roster spot, should the Rays advance to the AL Championship Series, and it felt good to shake off the rust Sunday.
