Series Preview: Rays vs. Blue Jays

Photo by Rich Graessle/Icon Sportswire via The Tampa Bay Rays head on the road after a lackluster home stand. The Rays start with five games against the Toronto Blue Jays before taking on the Boston Red Sox and Cincinnati Reds for three game sets. This will be a key stretch to see where the teams will stand in the American League East and Wild Card races. The New York Yankees hold a substantial lead in the American League East leading the Red Sox by 13.0 games, Blue Jays by 13.5 games, Rays by 15.0 games, and the Baltimore Orioles by 21.5 games.

Rays Make Roster Moves

Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports The team will cross the border with a new look pitching staff The Tampa Bay Rays are set to begin their first series in Toronto, facing the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre for the first time since the pandemic forced the club to take up a temporary residence in Buffalo, New York. The Blue Jays, of course, play in Toronto, Ontario, where Canada’s COVID rules for visitors apply. The Canadian policy is that only those fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus can enter the country, and there is no exception for athletes. Major league teams...

St. Petersburg to re-start Tropicana Field redevelopment project, now with Rays involved

St. Petersburg to re-start Tropicana Field redevelopment project, now with Rays involved

Team’s future in St. Pete to be determined by the end of the year. St. Petersburg Mayor Ken Welch has finally made official what has always been the most likely course of action regarding the redevelopment of the Tropicana Field site: he’s going to choose his own developer, and he’s going to do it with the Rays involvement. Early in 2020, former Mayor Rick Kriseman made an attempt at finding a developer for the Rays stadium site, which occupies nearly 25% of the downtown footprint. It was an appropriate course of action for the City, but one met by several roadblocks,...

Rays 3, Brewers 5: Old friend alert

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Could have done without those home runs. Welcome back. Willy Adames. The former Rays’ shortstop was welcomed warmly by fans and the home dugout alike as he made his turn to Tropicana Field tonight, and it was nice to see his familiar smile on the field again. For the Rays, there weren’t a lot of familiar faces when it came to squaring off against the Brewers, and this unusual little two-game series was a hard one to predict. Shane Baz was up for the Rays and Brandon Woodruff took the mound for the Brewers. It took a while before any runs...

Series Preview: Rays vs Brewers

Photo by John Fisher/ The Tampa Bay Rays swept the Pittsburgh Pirates in an exciting series that included two walk offs for the Rays. Now the Rays host a family reunion against the Milwaukee Brewers. Former Rays Willy Adames, Mike Brosseau, Hunter Renfroe and Brad Boxberger return to Tropicana Field, and if Ozzie Timmons is doing dugout pushups it will be for the other guys. The New York Yankees continue to accumulate a massive lead in the American League East. Second through fourth place are only 1.0 game apart. The Boston Red Sox trail the Yankees by 12.0 games. The...

Rays Your Voice: Processing Losing as a Fan, with guest Ian Malinowski

Rays Your Voice: Processing Losing as a Fan, with guest Ian Malinowski

Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports News on Isaac Paredes, Wander Franco, and more. This week I am joined by Ian Malinowski to discuss everything that went down at Tropicana Field, including Isaac Paredes slugging his way to the American League Player of the Week Award. During that week he hit .579, had a 488 wRC+, and hit 5 home runs, bringing his season total to a team-leading 10. When a hitter is running this hot, you expect them to do it every game. Even though Paredes will not be a career 488 wRC+ hitter, Ian and I discuss why he has been such an important addition to...

Rays prospects and minor leagues: Patino builds workload

Rays prospects and minor leagues: Patino builds workload

Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports Luis Patino threw five innings Sunday in his longest rehab appearance yet. A player who’s having a really interesting season is Alika Williams. Mostly billed as a contact hitter without a lot of power, he’s a .264 hitter in his pro career. This season, he has seven home runs (he had five in 129 games at Arizona State) and a .210 ISO. His strikeout rate has gone up a bit, but not by so much that it looks like he’s selling out to hit for more power. He’s 23, and it might be interesting to see how he fares in Double A. Triple-A Durham...

Rays 6, Pirates 5: Victory Paredes!

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports Isaac Parades saves the day Not gonna lie, this recap was going to be about how much I hated the bullpen management, and how Cash clearly pissed off the baseball gods. But the Rays had other ideas, rallying and winning it in thrilling fashion in the bottom of the ninth. Corey Kluber got the start today against J.T. Brubaker. And the Rays lineup? Well, it looked a little different, with Taylor Walls in the leadoff slot. pic.twitter.com/VNr9eGkbkt— Tampa Bay Devil Rays (@RaysBaseball) June 25, 2022 This...
