Extra bases

• Luke Scott (tight left hamstring) appears to be on schedule to play on Monday. Sam Fuld (right hamstring tightness) is still projected to begin playing again by the end of the week.

• The B-Street Band, a Bruce Springsteen tribute band formed in 1980 out of New Jersey, will perform pregame on Monday at Charlotte Sports Park; the performance will be free. Willie Forte (vocals/keyboard) is a childhood friend of Rays manager Joe Maddon. Originally, the band was scheduled to play on Sunday.

• Beginning on March 19, Maddon's wife, Jaye, will begin driving her RV from Long Beach, Calif., to Tampa with the Maddons' two dogs -- Winston, an English bulldog, and Athena, a Great Dane. Jaye is collecting pledges for a penny a mile to benefit the Pet Pal Animal Shelter in St. Petersburg. To donate, visit PetPalAnimalShelter.com.
