How Brandon Lowe got 2021 back on track

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ After the trade deadline, the Rays got other bats that were the missing piece, Nelson Cruz and Jordan Luplow helped the lineup with some struggles when facing a left-handed pitcher. These additions have powered up the lineup to one of the best in MLB, Rays rank 1st in runs scored, just ahead of the Astros. They also rank 7th in home runs, which has helped the offensive production. However one of the best acquisitions of the Rays so far is getting Brandon Lowe back. The team’s undersized power hitter had a rough start in 2021 slashing...

Tampa Bay Rays News And Links: Franco and Cruz shine

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Wander’s breakout is real and it’s spectacular The Rays knocked off the Phillies yesterday, backed by some solid pitching, timely hitting, and great defense.

View from the Catwalk: A Miggy milestone and a series win

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Rays News The good news: the Rays won a very decisive Sunday afternoon game against the Chicago White Sox, 9-0. They are now 4.5 games up on the Yankees (who can’t seem to lose), and 7.0 games up on the Red Sox (who can’t seem to win). The bad news: three Rays players either reported sick or came out of the game injured. Nelson Cruz went on the COVID IL although as of Sunday evening we only know that they are awaiting testing results. Chris Archer, who looked pretty good in his two innings, got no further in the game, complaining of hip...
