Rasmus (groin), who is back in the lineup for Sunday's exhibition matchup, is set to serve as the designated hitter both Sunday and Monday, Rays broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

After logging some at-bats on two consecutive days, Rasmus is then slated to get a few days of rest. The team is still optimistic that Rasmus will be ready for Opening Day, but with several quality DH options already on the roster, he'll likely need to start playing the field soon if he wants his playing time to be consistent.
