View from the Catwalk: Blake Snell toes the line, lands on the Injured List

Blake Snell has a bathroom mishap that breaks his toe The Tampa Bay Rays won another game yesterday, improving their record to 13-4 on the young season. They have a 5.5 game lead on the New York Yankees for the division lead, and they’re the only team in the American League East to be over .500. The Rays also hold the largest division lead of any team in baseball. During last night’s game, Tyler Glasnow didn’t have his best stuff, but still showcased his vastly improved command as he worked seven innings, yielding two runs on seven hits, while he picked up three strikeouts and...

Blake Snell to 10 Day injured list

Blake Snell to 10 Day injured list

Emilio Pagan recalled to shore up bullpen The Tampa Bay Rays have placed Blake Snell on the 10 day injured list. He has apparently fractured a toe. No word from the Rays about when and how this injury occurred. The IL designation is retroactive to Sunday. He is expected to miss one start. That start, of course, would have come against the Red Sox. The Rays called up reliever Emilio Pagan to take Snell’s roster spot. Pagan was an offseason acquisition whose strong Spring Training put him in the running to break camp with the team. He was ultimately optioned to Durham but it is not...

Rays journal: Blake Snell move aside, the bats failed, too

TORONTO : There's fair reason to feel the Rays lost Saturday's game because of the decision to take out Blake Snell after six innings.But they also had several chances to win it, or at least get into position to, that they didn't take advantage of.

Blue Jays overcome Snell's no-hit bid, beat Rays 3-1

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to help the Toronto Blue Jays overcome reigning AL Cy Young winner Blake Snell's no-hit bid in a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday, snapping the Rays' five-game winning streak.

Buchholz shines in debut, Jays rally late to stifle Rays

Buchholz shines in debut, Jays rally late to stifle Rays

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but the Blue Jays were no hit until the 6th inning, then rallied late off the relievers. ‘Tis the Blue Jays way. However, I don’t think many of us were expecting a lineup that had Alen Hanson playing in right field to defeat the Rays in a game started by both Blake Snell and a pitcher who gave up 4 homers in a AAA start a few days ago, so we will take it. The Jays, facing Cy Young winner Blake Snell, predictably didn’t have a base runner until the 4th inning when Justin Smoak took a one-out walk. Teoscar Hernandez hit a grounder to second...

Blake Snell leaves after six innings and Rays lose to Jays 3-1

TORONTO : Blake Snell gave the Rays six dazzling innings on Saturday, allowing just a sole single to the second to last batter he faced and throwing only 82 pitches. But manager Kevin Cash decided that was enough for Snell, and that led to the Rays losing to Charlie

Jays 3, Rays 1: Can’t win them all

Jays 3, Rays 1: Can’t win them all

The Rays failed to score earlier and it hurt them later. There are some game recaps where the narrative of the game feels so set in stone that you can start writing the darned thing in the fourth inning and be pretty confident you won’t need to rewrite the entire thing later. Then there are games where you don’t start writing a word until the eighth inning and are pretty happy for it. Today is an example of the latter. Through six innings it was a classic pitcher’s duel between Blake Snell — with a 2-1 record — and Clay Buccholz — making his 2019 season debut. While Buccholz’s...

GameThread Game #15: Rays at Blue Jays

Happy Saturday! Here’s your fun fact for the day: On a more positive note for the #BlueJays they have scored six or more runs in three consecutive games. They only did that once all of last season -- April 29-May 1.— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) April 13, 2019 Unfortunately, the Jays are facing Blake Snell today, so it seems a tad unlikely they will score six or more runs.

Says call from replay staff was to not...
