The Tampa Bay Rays will look for a series win Sunday over the Chicago White Sox at Tropicana Field, with Ryan Yarbrough (0-2, 4.00 ERA) getting the start against Lucas Giolito (3-2, 3.61 ERA), and a big piece of the bullpen returning from injury.

Reliever Andrew Kittredge, who has missed more than two weeks with tightness in his lower back, was activated from the 15-day injured list prior to the game.

Kittredge, who Tampa Bay has used in the ninth inning regularly the last two seasons, is 3-1 with a 3.00 earned run avergage in 15 appearances, with five saves in seven appearances.

To make room on the active roster for Kittredge, right-hander Calvin Faucher, who was called up when J.P. Feyereisen was injured, was optioned to Triple-A Durham.
