Rays 2018 Season Review: Offense

Rays 2018 Season Review: Offense

The 2018 Tampa Bay Rays offense was much different than their 2017 iteration of their roster. There were players lost to free agency and players traded away. The Rays also acquired CJ Cron and Joey Wendle in trades and were expecting to transition to youngsters Willy Adames and Jake Bauers at some point in the season. The offense was surprisingly good.
