The Rays Tank: Duel in KC, Moore to see Dr. Andrews

The Rays Tank: Duel in KC, Moore to see Dr. Andrews

As echoed in the comments, Ian provided a wonderful recap of last night's duel between Chris Archer and Yordano Ventura, praising both young pitchers for splendid performances that were followed by strong bullpen appearances from both teams (Wade Davis and Jake McGee, respectively). The lone run was scored in the 9th, courtesy of Wil Myers and James Loney; and Grant Balfour closed out the game, giving the Rays their fifth win of the 2014 season and sole possession of first in the AL East...because that's extremely relevant right now.

2014 Season Preview: The Bullpen Depth

2014 Season Preview: The Bullpen Depth

The Rays bullpen has a few major league locks: Grant Balfour the closer, Jake McGee (L) the fireman, Joel Peralta the veteran, Juan Carlos Oviedo rebounding from injury, Heath Bell rebounding from failure, and two relievers out of options: Josh Lueke and Cesar Ramos (L). Wait, that's seven guys. Several of these names however may be in a state of flux: Grant Balfour is dealing with a dead arm, which may or may not be standard for Spring, Joel Peralta is dealing with a stiff neck, Juan Carlos Oviedo was delayed weeks in returning to the States due to visa scrutiny (a product of his days as...
