Rays' Austin Meadows drops in All-Star Game fan balloting, but still in good position to advance

NEW YORK - Rays outfielder Austin Meadows fell out of the top three American League outfielders in All-Star Game fan balloting, but because of this year's new voting format, he doesn't need to be in the top three quite yet to earn a starting assignment in the midsummer

Pittsburgh Pirates: Chris Archer Was a Lesson for Baseball

Last year the Pittsburgh Pirates swung a deal to land Chris Archer, giving up Tyler Glasnow, Austin Meadows and minor leaguer Shane Baz. It was a deal that shocked everyone in baseball. It was a deal that many labeled an outright win for the Tampa Bay Rays. So far, that label has been correct, Austin […] Pittsburgh Pirates: Chris Archer Was a Lesson for Baseball - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

'Best win of the season:' How a sixth-inning rally might fix the Rays homestand

ST. PETERSBURG - The Rays offense was sluggish against Andrew Heaney and the Angels on Friday, and the southpaw shut out Tampa Bay through his first five innings of work. Austin Meadows, hitless in his previous 14 at-bats, stepped up to the plate to lead off the sixth inning.

The most unheralded MLB outfielders of 2019

The most unheralded MLB outfielders of 2019

These three outfielders are making sure they keep their starting jobs. Outfielders account for some of the most talented hitters in the majors leagues. Mike Trout, Christian Yelich, Mookie Betts, and the Yankees very own Aaron Judge comes to mind. Some newer players, however, are hoping to one day rank among those elite outfielders. Each of these candidates had around 200 major league plate appearances before this season began and have taken full advantage of their playing time. Austin Meadows The early returns of the Chris Archer trade heavily favor the Rays. Not only is Meadows ranking...

Game 1: Rays 9, Red Sox 2 - d’Arnaud goes yard as Yarbrough dominates

Game 1: Rays 9, Red Sox 2 - d’Arnaud goes yard as Yarbrough dominates

Ryan Yarbrough baffled the Red Sox and Travis d’Arnaud hit his third homer of the road trip. In game one of this twin bill, the Rays pulled into a temporary first-place tie with the Yankees by beating the hated Red Sox 9-2. Ryan Yarbrough picked up his fifth win of the year (if you care about those kind of things) while working two outs into the eighth on 110 pitches (75 strikes). On offense, the Rays had scoring opportunities all day against journeyman Josh Smith, who was making just his second start of the season. In the first inning, Austin Meadows led off with a single and quickly...

View from the Catwalk: Joey Wendle to begin rehab assignment

Out since late April, Joey Wendle is nearing his return Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays shutout the Detroit Tigers, 4-0, to snap their four game losing streak. Charlie Morton dominated, delivering seven scoreless innings and striking out eight during his night on the mound. Oliver Drake closed it out for the Rays, pitching a perfect 8th and 9th inning. Offensively, Avisail Garcia doubled home a run. Austin Meadows tripled, and then scored thanks to an error. Ji-Man Choi was the only Rays player with a multi-hit game. Today, the Rays go for the series victory with Ryne Stanek opening against...

While Morton was terrific, the offense did their part to help secure the victory Looking to rebound from their fourth straight loss, the Rays took on the Tigers in the middle game of the series at Comerica Park. Charlie Morton was tabbed as the starter for the Rays tonight, facing off against rookie pitcher Spencer Turnbull and the Tigers.

View from the Catwalk: Snell rocked in Detroit

It was going good, until it wasn’t Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays losing ways continued as they fell, 9-6, to the Detroit Tigers. Blake Snell had overcome a rough couple of innings and appeared to be dominating until he ran into a buzzsaw during a fifth inning that eventually concluded Snell’s night on the mound, as he would give up a grand slam to Miguel Cabrera. The positives for the Rays were low, but Avisail Garcia homered in his return to the lineup and Austin Meadows doubled. Willy Adames launched a grand slam of his own in the 8th, and that’d be it for the Rays...

Ray 14 Twins 3: Charlie Freakin Morton and a lot of hits lead Rays to dominant win

Ray 14 Twins 3: Charlie Freakin Morton and a lot of hits lead Rays to dominant win

Birthday boy Christian Arroyo, Avisail Garcia and, of course, Austin Meadows all have big nights I thought this was going to be a pitchers duel. Twins starting pitcher Martin Perez is having a great year. His velocity is up from last year’s with his fastball touching 95 and he’s relying more on an effective cutter. He came in with a 2.95 ERA which is significantly lower than his career 4.51. With a 3.72 FIP he’s maybe been a touch lucky but mostly he’s just been good. For the Rays, we had Charlie Morton, who of course, has been Charlie Freakin Morton in most of his starts, capable...
