The Rays pitching depth is about to be tested

The Rays pitching depth is about to be tested

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Fingers crossed from here on out. The Tampa Bay Rays have a problem: Yonny Chirinos has joined starters Blake Snell and Tyler Glasnow on the Injured List due to middle finger inflammation and is expected to miss a month. This sends the Rays deep into their depth charts for starting pitchers or bulk pitchers. Charlie Morton and Ryan Yarbrough are the two men left standing from the expected five to start the season picking up the bulk of the innings for the Tampa Bay Rays. Despite the talk from New York Yankees fans every team has to deal with injuries. The...

Rays in pursuit of Zack Wheeler

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports The Rays have made an offer for Wheeler, but the two sides remain far a part The Tampa Bay Rays are in heavy pursuit of right-handed pitcher Zach Wheeler of the New York Mets. Wheeler would join an injury plagued Rays rotation that has heavily relied on veteran Charlie Morton and openers this season. With Tyler Glasnow not expcted to return in the near future and Blake Snell being sidelined for several more weeks, the Rays are in need of another front line starting pitcher to add to their rotation. The Rays interest in Wheeler has been known for several...

MLB Trade Deadline: Under the radar targets for the Tampa Bay Rays

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Eric Sogard seems like a very reasonable trade acquisition, where the Rays make a decent pick up without having to give up too much. With the trade deadline approaching on Wednesday, what’s another “reasonable” trade target the Rays could pursue? RHP Anthony DeSclafani Tampa Bay would benefit from one more starter in the rotation with Blake Snell sidelined, but it would preferably be one that’s really a rental — one capable of throwing more than half an inning’s games but not one that will stand in the way of Snell or Glasnow (fingers crossed) returning...

Rays 4, White Sox 2: Mama, there goes that man again!

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Travis d’Arnaud’s grand slam backs a scoreless outing from Snell On a day that the White Sox out hit the Rays five to three, the Rays got the hit that mattered, winning 4-2 and snapping their five game losing streak. Blake Snell scrapped his way through six scoreless, and the bullpen held on. The Rays dodged a bullet in the first. With Snell fishing for the zone, the White Sox put two of the first three hitters on base, then pulled off a double steal to put runners on second and third. And when a breaking ball to McCann got away from d’Arnaud, it looked...
