Another rumor has surfaced linking Ben Zobrist to the Mariners.
New faces have been a key part of the Rays’ recent offensive success as the team continues to dig out of the early season hold it created. Logan Forsythe and Kevin Kiermaier have been central figures of the run while the currently disabled Jerry Sands had a hand in several late-inning comebacks prior to the […]
Jake McGee has been the Rays’ best relief pitcher for the better part of the last three seasons. Despite that claim, he is only now getting a chance to close games because of Grant Balfour’s ineffectiveness.
Updating a few roster moves.
The Rays have been on a run as of late. While it comes as no surprise that the team is playing better than it had previously, one of the catalyst may be a eye-opener to some. Over the last two weeks, Logan Forsythe is hitting .436/.476/.667. Expand our sample to the last 30 days, and […]

For the last seven seasons the summers around these parts have been filled with competitive baseball. With the Rays sporting the league’s worst record this year, some have decided to the void with rumor mongering.

At the close of business on May 31, he was hitting just .260/.322/.370 with 12 extra-base hits in 242 plate appearances. Pitches that he previously punished – most notably on the […]

A fourth-inning single by Astros’ second baseman Jose Altuve that deflected off the left foot of Odorizzi was the only hit allowed by the right-hander (and a pair of relievers) as Tampa Bay cruised to an easy 8-0 victory over Houston.
