Tampa Bay Rays news and links: So, Yonny is human after all

Tampa Bay Rays news and links: So, Yonny is human after all

At least Carlos Gomez is fun The Rays fell to 4-13 on the season Tuesday night, as Bullpen Day breakout, Yonny Chirinos finally gave up his first run of his career, and then gave up five more, allowing six runs over 5.2 innings against the Texas Rangers. As Tampa Bay Times writer Greg Auman pointed out in his recap of the game, it was the eighth time in 17 games that the Rays failed to reach three runs, and they have lost each and every one of those games. And as Ian noted, it is notable just how long Chirinos was left in the game by Cash. It’s an early start for the series finale...

They didn’t score in either. That’s not good! The first inning featured one-out walks from Kevin Kiermaier and Carlos Gomez. C.J. Cron grounded to first to move the runners up, in front of yet another walk, this one to Joey Wendle. Unfortunately, Matt Duffy fanned on four pitches, swinging over a nasty curve from Shields for strike three. The second inning was the one that really...

Kevin Kiermaier out of the lineup against Red Sox

The slumping star player gets some R&R in Boston. BOSTON, MA — After a chilly game on Thursday, one of the coldest in Tampa Bay Rays history, and a snow covered off-day in the city on Friday, the Rays have one illness casualty amidst the bad weather. Kevin Kiermaier was pulled from the lineup before the clubhouse opened this morning, with veteran center fielder Carlos Gomez penciled in his place, and speedy Mallex Smith moved to right field after he failed to track down a difficult, game winning flyball in front of the claustrophobic Green Monster on Thursday. Rays manager Kevin Cash...

Get ready for the Carlos Gomez show

Get ready for the Carlos Gomez show

With their new outfielder, the Rays are in for an experience Carlos Gomez was the Rays’ quick answer in right field after the trade of Steven Souza Jr.: A fireball entertainer who makes fans shake their head one play and “ooohh” and “ahhhh” the next, and an enigma in the spreadsheet. What exactly can we expect out of Gomez in 2018? His home/road splits are incredibly confusing Gomez’s offensive numbers are unusual. Last year with the Texas Rangers, he hit an unbelievable .448 wOBA vs. RHPs at Globe Life Park — one of the more hitter-friendly environments in the game — but...
