Extra bases

• Rays players will enjoy their first off-day of the spring on Monday. Including Sunday's game, the Rays will have played 18 games in 18 days since the Grapefruit League season began, including Saturday's split-squad action and one rainout March 6. Despite the off day, Alex Cobb will pitch in a game in Fort Myers against Twins Minor Leaguers in order to stay in order.

• Sunday's game against the Red Sox at Charlotte Sports Park was a sellout, the first of the spring and the 21st sellout (in 88 games) since the Rays moved their spring base to Charlotte Sports Park in 2009. Entering Sunday's game, attendance at Charlotte Sports Park is up 7 percent over last season at the same juncture of Spring Training.

• The Rays Sixth Annual BaseBALL Dinner & Auction benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Charlotte County will be held Friday at 6:30
