RAYS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Game 2014.125: Tigers at Rays

Baseball Reference Game Preview David Price vs. Alex Cobb GREAT game last night. There’s something to be said for dinosaurs and pitchers written off as perpetual #5 starters. Not only did Ricky P toss his third complete game shutout of 2014 (a feat that has never been accomplished before in baseball’s 900-year history), but he was also part of a couple nicely turned plays where...

Brad Boxberger Has Arrived, In Reverse

This is going to be one of those things where probably 95% of you will go “Wow, that’s somewhat interesting,” while 5% of you — the percentage who are a fan or close follower of the Tampa Bay Rays, probably — will say “Yeah, genius, we’ve been following this for months.” Still, the third week of […]

Detroit Tigers at Tampa Bay Rays series primer

The Tampa Bay Rays insist they have moved on. "Moving on" is hard to quantify, but baseball has a way of passing time in a methodical way unlike any other sport. There's always another day, another challenge, another night in a 162-game grind that tests mental and physical limits. Few things are like it. Certainly not the NFL, and the NBA season lasts about half as...

Rays Injury Update: David DeJesus, Wil Myers

The Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees on Sunday by the score of 4-2. The loss dropped the Rays to 61-63, fourth in the American League East. With 38 games in the season, there is little time to get back in the race. The eventual return of David DeJesus and Wil Myers could provide the offensive spark the Rays need. Myers is improving in his rehab, while DeJesus took a...

Rays Sign Venezuelan Lefthander Francisco Sanchez

The Rays have signed 16-year-old Venezuelan lefthander Francisco Sanchez for $675,000. At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Sanchez has flashed swing-and-miss stuff, with a fastball that has touched 94 along with a curveball and a changeup. He will have to learn to repeat his delivery to get the ball in the strike zone more often, although his athleticism should help him there. Sanchez trained...

Small margin of error: Rays waste elite pitching stretch with sub-par offense

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Before Sunday, the past 12 games were a clinic in quality pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays, the kind of display that's necessary to make an outside chance to reach the playoffs more real. For 12 consecutive games from Aug. 4-16, from right-hander Alex Cobb to right-hander Jake Odorizzi and everyone in between within the rotation and beyond, Rays pitching...

Joe Maddon disappointed with Rays fans

A capacity crowd at Tropicana Field is 31,042 and, as you would imagine, the fourth place Tampa Bay Rays haven’t come close to filling the place since Opening Day. That was, of course, until Derek Jeter came to town. You see, the New York are drawing crowds all across baseball…with fans hoping to get one last glimpse of their team captain and his retirement sideshow. Saturday...

The Rays are salty about their flag at Wrigley Field

This weekend, the Rays take on the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Hanging outside of the park is a flag emblazoned with “Devil Rays”, Tampa Bay’s former moniker. The club isn’t too happy about that. Hey, @Cubs, look for that Orphans flag next time you're at our place. pic.twitter.com/TfSZD0FAF9 — Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) August 8, 2014 To be fair, it is a turn back the...
