ONE TOUGH FELLA
Jeff Niemann took a liner off his right leg in the first inning but continued on and finished out the inning. It was later discovered that his leg was fractured by the ball.
Hard to believe that the Tampa Bay Rays are still hovering at the top of the AL East. With a real lack of Superstar leadership offensively and defensively, the young Rays continue to make plays, score runs, and beat the odds to still be legitimate contenders in what is arguably the American League’s toughest division.
Biggest loss so far is Evan Longoria. Longo has had hamstring...

The Tampa Bay Rays are receiving some bad news on outfielder Desmond Jennings. Manager Joe Maddon told reporters Sunday that the progress on Jennings’ injured knee is stalling as Jennings’ knee is still sore and it will still cause him to miss games and possibly turn into significant time loss.
Jennings was out of the lineup Sunday and missed his sixth straight game due to the...

The Tampa Bay Rays know what it takes to win, and making five errors in a game is certainly not part of that formula.
And so, after the Rays bungled their way to a 5-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night, manager Joe Maddon didn't have to dig deep to come up with an explanation for the defeat.
''There's a fine line between winning and losing,''...

Coming into this season, Rays rookie starter Matt Moore was expected to be one of the Rays' best starters. After seven starts, Moore has a 5.31 ERA, 34 strikeouts, 22 walks, and has allowed six homers. These aren't really great signs. His bad ERA is boosted by a 4.98 FIP and 5.01 xFIP. He's only getting ground balls in 33.1% of plate appearances. His BABIP is high at...

Morrow looks to win a career-high fifth consecutive start and exact a measure of revenge against the Rays in the opener of a two-game series Monday night at...
