Tampa Bay Rays 2014 News and Updates
9/4/14 - It certainly looked, as late as last week, that the Tampa Bay Rays had a chance of reeling in Toronto and moving into third place in the very competitive American League East. However, since then, the Rays have dropped seven of 10 – including three of four to Baltimore, a split with Boston, and two losses to the Blue Jays – to fall to 15 games behind the division-leading Orioles, and five back of the third-place Jays. The Rays have six out-of-division games remaining this season – their final three home games of the year against the Chicago White Sox, in mid-month; and their final series of the season, on the road in Cleveland as part of a six-game road trip.
8/28/14 - Those Tampa Bay Rays, they just keep on keepin’ on. Moving to within two games of third place Toronto in the AL East, the Rays are just three games under .500 for the year, but need to hustle if they hope to have any chance at the wild card, sitting 7 ½ games behind Seattle and Detroit, who are currently tied for the second wild-card slot. The Rays, like the rest of Major League Baseball, will finish the season primarily against their own division, with a pair of series – against the Chicago White Soc and a season-ender against Cleveland – being the only six games not against division opponents.
… moreThe Rays start a 10-game homestand against Boston, Toronto, and Baltimore this weekend.
8/21/14 - It is nothing but sweet irony, in his first outing against the club that developed him and turned him into a star – the Tampa Bay Rays – that Detroit pitcher David Price would throw a one-hitter…and still lose, 1-0. The Rays’ lone run was scored by Ben Zobrist, who reached on an error by the Tigers’ shortstop, then was driven home by Brandon Guyer’s triple, the only hit allowed by Price. Price, the former Rays ace, whiffed nine hitters en route to his eight inning complete game, becoming just the third pitcher to ring up at least nine K’s in a one-hit losing effort in the last 100 years. Alex Cobb collected his ninth win, allowing just two hits in seven innings of work while striking out six.
8/14/14 - Could the Tampa Bay Rays reel in the faltering “Evil Empire” New York Yankees? Just a few weeks ago, only the most die-hard Rays fan might have entertained such thoughts – but don’t look now, the Rays are just 2 ½ games behind the once-mighty Bronx Bombers. While the Rays are just 5-5 in their last 10 games (and 6-6 in the month of August), they have to be encouraged by their on-field performance; even though they haven’t quite gotten to a .500 record (two games under as of Thursday’s games), they have a better positive run differential than East Division rival Toronto, who at one point led the division. And, while the Rays have several teams to climb over in an extremely tight wild-card chase, they are just 6 ½ games out of the second AL wild-card slot.
7/31/14 - With the trading deadline looming, the Tampa Bay Rays pulled a three-way deal with Detroit and Seattle which sent former Cy Young Award winner David Price, who was long rumored to be on the trading block, to the Central Division leading Tigers, where he will join Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, and Anibal Sanchez to form one of the American League’s most formidable starting rotations – one that could keep pace with Oakland, who pulled a blockbuster deadline deal earlier in the day. In exchange, the Rays will get a young starting pitcher from Detroit, Drew Smyly, who was 6-9 in 18 starts for the Tigers, with 89 strikeouts and a 3.93 ERA; also from the Tigers, infielder Willy Adames; and from the Mariners, another infielder, Nick Franklin. Smyly was the starter in Thursday’s game for Detroit, giving up four runs in five innings.
7/24/14 - Don’t look now, but the hottest team in baseball at the moment is…the Tampa Bay Rays. Once written off just a month ago, the Rays have won five straight coming out of the All-Star break, and seven straight overall, good enough to move them two games up on last-place Boston, and just 4 ½ games behind Toronto and the New York Yankees, who are tied for second place. The winning streak also adds some pressure to a team who will need to make a buy-or-sell decision next week, when the trading deadline rolls around. The Rays swept both Minnesota (three games) and National League contender St. Louis (two games) and have a chance to put even more breathing room between themselves and the rival Red Sox this weekend, which in recent years has been a battle.
7/10/14 - A little over a month ago, the Tampa Bay Rays were one of the biggest underperforming teams in all of Major League Baseball, stuck in last place in the highly competitive American League East Division. Now? They’re out of the cellar (albeit by one percentage point over Boston), less than 10 games behind new division leader Baltimore, and many of the trade rumors regarding ace David Price are quieting in the process. The Rays have won 12 of their last 15, and are set to host the suddenly swooning division rivals from Toronto in a key series this weekend. The Rays still have a lot of work yet to do, but in a season that tends to have ups and downs, at this point the Rays are riding a positive wave.
6/23/14 - It’s clear that the Tampa Bay Rays, by won-loss record the worst team in Major League Baseball at 29-46, will be sellers as the trade deadline draws near. And in that instance, probably the biggest name that might come up in trade discussions is that of starting pitcher David Price, who has been so instrumental in the Rays’ success in recent years. Price is still a top-rate starting pitcher by any standard, despite having just five wins against seven losses this season. Of his 16 starts, nine have been classified as “quality starts” (a start of at least six innings, allowing three runs or less); Price has accumulated an American League-leading 133 strikeouts, against just 13 walks with a WHIP (walks plus hits divided by innings pitched) of 1.12 (8th in the AL) and an ERA of 3.81.
6/16/14 - An interesting pair of news headlines – one routine, one rather unusual – featured the Tampa Bay Rays recently. First, the Rays announced that Grant Balfour would no longer be their designated closer, instead choosing to go to a “closer by committee” system of finishing games, said manager Joe Maddon. Although Balfour had converted nine of 11 save opportunities in 24 games, he also had an ERA of over 6, and had walked nearly a bqatter an inning. Off the field, though, the next story could fall under “odd news”: the slumping Rays bringing in a Seminole Indian “medicine man” in an attempt to reverse the team’s fortunes. (Unfortunately for the Rays, the attempt was unsuccessful – at least so far.)
6/4/14 - The entire baseball world reacted with the passing of Tampa Bay Rays senior advisor and coach Don Zimmer on June 4. Zimmer, who was 83, was one of the Brooklyn Dodgers’ “Boys of Summer” in the 1950s, signing with the Dodgers in 1949 and working his way into the starting lineup in 1954, alongside such names as Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese, and a year later being an integral part of the only Brooklyn squad to capture a World Series title. Zimmer would leave Brooklyn when the franchise relocated to Los Angeles before the 1958 season, but returned as a member of the expansion New York Mets in 1962. His final year as a player would be spent in Japan in 1966, after which time he bounced among numerous clubs as a coach, and in four cases – San Diego in 1972-73; Boston in 1976-80; Texas in 1981-82, and the Chicago Cubs in 1988-91 – a manager. Zimmer joined the then-Devil Rays in 2004 and spent the rest of his career in the Tampa Bay organization.
5/29/14 - “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.” So goes one of the quotes from the baseball movie classic “Bull Durham.” And in the case of the Tampa Bay Rays, it could very well be a walk-off. The Rays won three consecutive games last weekend in walk-off fashion, starting with a game-winning three-run homer by Sean Rodriguez to beat Oakland; then the next night, against the Boston Red Sox, rookie Cole Figueroa doubled home the winning run; then Figueroa scored the game-winner on a Boston throwing error. (The Red Sox had not lost back-to-back walk-offs to the same team since July 2002, according to ESPN Stats and Info.) On the other hand, a few days later, the Rays allowed Toronto to walk off with a win on a throwing error by Rays reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo.
5/23/14 - Talk about unlucky. Erik Bedard threw 5 1/3 innings of one hit baseball, followed by four relievers who allowed no hits in the remainder of the game – and the Rays still lost, 3-2, to Oakland on May 21. The lone hit was a homer by A’s Brandon Moss, however, the Rays had given up a pair of runs in the second inning thanks to a throwing error by Sean Rodriguez. In better news for the Rays, though, starting pitcher Alex Cobb has been activated from the disabled list; he had been placed on the DL in April after a strained side. The Rays have two other starters on the disabled list: Matt Moore, who underwent ligament replacement surgery; and Jeremy Hellickson, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow and recently threw a short bullpen session. Hellickson is expected to return by the All-Star break.
5/16/14 - The Tampa Bay Rays got some bad news this week when Ben Zobrist, their versatile switch-hitting infielder, was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a dislocated left thumb. Zobrist is hitting .260/.352/.364 with three homers and nine RBI; he also leads the Rays in runs scored with 24, just one ahead of teammate Wil Myers and two ahead of Evan Longoria. Longoria is one of a number of Rays who have a team high four longballs; no fewer than five players – Longoria, Myers, David DeJesus, Desmond Jennings, and Sean Rodriguez – have collected four homers so far this season. James Loney is the leading Rays hitter in terms of batting average, his 46 hits and .313 average are tops on the team.
5/5/14 - The Tampa Bay Rays have done much to improve their division standing to a 15-17 record. Last week, the squad won two important series against division opponents, the Red Sox and Yankees--on the road and in convincing fashion. Upon their return to Tropicana Field, Tampa Bay is third in the standings, pitted against other AL East contenders, the Orioles, in their upcoming series. Tampa Bay Rays tickets are only $6-8 to start against Baltimore (5/6-5/8).
4/29/14 - The Tampa Bay Rays are at the bottom of their division: earning an 11-15 record in the tough AL East.

4/22/14 - The Tampa Bay Rays are 9-10 on the season, which puts them 4th in the tough AL East. The Yankees lead the division with 11 wins, followed by Toronto (10), while Baltimore, Boston and Tampa Bay are tied at nine. In their last series, split 2-2, the Rays snapped a four-game losing streak against the Yankees in one meeting and pounded them, 16-1, in the next. Tampa Bay will conclude their home stretch with a series against Minnesota, before heading up to Chicago to take on the White Sox.

Showing Rays' offensive stock, Evan Longoria hit a two-run homer, while Grant Balfour made a blemish-free start with Tampa Bay after four years in the 6-3 victory against the Twins. The Red Sox better watch out, because with this promising preseason start, it looks like the Rays are coming for them in the AL East!

Tampa Bay Rays 2014 Season
The Tampa Bay Rays are one of the teams to beat in the AL East, finishing just second to the Boston Red Sox last year. Despite getting close in playoffs, the Rays let go of numerous players this winter: including, Kelly Johnson, Luke Scott, Sal Fuld, Delmon Young, Roberto Hernandez, Fernando Rodney, Alex Torres, Jamey Wright and Jeff Niemann. This exhaustive list has been revamped by promising rookies/new starters and the latest acquisitions: talented catcher Ryan Hanigan, Logan Forsythe, and Heath Bell.
The bullpen will get a boost from fresh starters already enlisted, sure to be upgrades over the last rotation if fully healthy; these players are bolstered by two of the Rays’ bigger signings this offseason: pitchers Brad Boxberger and Grant Balfour. The outfield will greatly benefit from a full season by Rookie of the Year Wil Myers, as well as David DeJesus. Though they re-signed James Loney and Jose Molina, the Rays must still decide whether or not to trade David Price. See if this re-working pays off with Tampa Bay Rays tickets this year. See if they can exact revenge on the defending World Series Champs who beat them out in the ALDS this time around!
After sneaking into the 2011 playoffs on the very last day, the Tampa Bay Rays fell back a little bit in 2012. While in contention for much of the season, the Rays fell back to third place in the American League’s East Division, behind eventual division champ New York, and a surprising Baltimore squad. The 2013 Rays have some power to make up, as 2012 team home run leader B.J. Upton went up the road to Atlanta. After Upton, the power and the hitting will come from Ben Zobrist, along with an apparently healthy Evan Longoria, who has already etched his name into Rays lore multiple times. Aside from Zobrist and Longoria, four other players — Desmond Jennings, Matt Joyce, Luke Scott, and Carlos Pena &mdsah; all collected double figures in home runs last year. Pitching-wise, the Rays lead with reigning Cy Young Award recipient David Price, who won 20 games for the first time in his career last year. Returning starters Jeremy Hellickson and Matt Moore will have to pick up some slack from James Shields's departure to Kansas City, while Fernando Rodney established himself as one of the league's elite closers in 2012. Manager Joe Maddon is widely regarded as one of baseball's best managers, and Rays fans at Tropicana Field are hoping the boys can Rays the stakes in 2013.
How much will Rays fans pay to see a game at Tropicana Field this season? Tampa Bay Rays tickets average $68 at home, some of the lowest-priced MLB tickets in 2013.
