Rays release preseason schedule

The Tampa Bay Rays preseason schedule includes 18 games in Port Charlotte -- including an exhibition game against the Colombian team -- and a March 31 finale at Clearwater, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

The Rays prefer not to face their AL East foes too often in the spring, and six games each against the NL Central Pirates and AL Central Twins helps, but they still have 16 games against the Blue Jays, Orioles, Red Sox and Yankees. They have one day of split-squad games (March 14) also have three off-days, March 6, 16 and 27.

Pitchers and catchers workout is scheduled for Feb. 14 and all players report Feb. 19.
