Rays 19, Twins 6: A week of runs in nine innings!

Well that was fun! Minneapolis — For the third consecutive day, the Rays fell behind early. In the bottom of the second inning, Max Kepler rapped a solo shot to right field off starter Chris Archer to give the Twins a 1-0 lead. The Rays, who hadn’t led at all in the series at the time, had to play catch up again. They started with a sharp single to center by Matt Duffy in the top of the fourth inning, followed by a walk by rookie Jake Bauers, and Ramos double to deep right center scoring the two on base. Berrios was able to retire Choi and Wendle the next two batters, then Carlos Gomez...

View from the catwalk: Matt Duffy talks about his recovery

Juan Toribio at the Athletic with a great feature on Matt Duffy, his injury, his struggles, and his resurgence. If you read one thing, make it this. Duffy talked about how his injury, and his slow recovery from it, and the pressure to preform on his new team got inside his head, to the point where he was wrong physically and pressing mentally: “I thought my career was essentially over.” It took the realization that achilles strains take a long time to heal and that they cannot be pushed, to give him the space to recover to where he is now (hitting over .300, with a 118 wRC+).

Matt Duffy still has a role on the Rays

Matt Duffy still has a role on the Rays

We love the youth movement but let’s not overlook what Duffy contributes The Rays have a glut of young middle infielders coming up through the system, some already on the big league squad. That has led many to ask: Should the Rays trade Matt Duffy? Short answer: No. Duffy has already accounted for 1.5 WAR, and he’s given the Rays above-average offense while proving solid defense at the hot corner.
