It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Tampa Bay Rays 2B Will Rhymes was hit in the forearm tonight by a two-seam fastball from Red Sox reliever Franklin Morales. The aftermath involved Rhymes taking his base. As he was trying to shake off the pain from the pitch, you could read his lips saying “I’m dizzy” after being asked to be taken out.
At that point, he began wobbling and then collapsed into the arms of first-base coach George Hendrick. He lost consciousness, and after he came to he was carted off the field of play. At that point, he appeared to be responsive and aware of his surroundings.
Rhymes was said to be alright according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. He was not taken to the hospital.

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.
If you had known that by mid-May there would be eight Tampa Bay Rays players on the disabled list, where would you have predicted the team to stand in the AL East?
If you had known that the roll call of injuries included such key names as Evan Longoria, Desmond Jennings, Jeff Niemann, Kyle Farnsworth and earlier on B.J. Upton, how far down in the standings would you have projected...
Rays second baseman Will Rhymes collapsed into the arms of his first base coach after being hit by a 95mph pitch during the 8th inning of Wednesday’s game. Rhymes was hit by a 2-2 fastball from Red Sox reliever Franklin Morales directly on the forearm. He immediately went down in pain, but he managed to make his way down to first base. Shortly after reaching base, Rhymes took...
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...
With all the injuries currently plaguing the Tampa Bay Rays, manager Joe Maddon might be the most recognizable name on the roster remaining. The crazy part is, that might not be such a bad thing. Despite all the names missing from the lineup due to injuries -- Evan Longoria, Kyle Farnsworth, Jeff Niemann, Desmond Jennings -- the team hasn't missed a beat, thanks in large part...
“In the end,” Thompson wrote, “very few people will remember anything I have done as a baseball player. But hopefully they will remember what kind of person and teammate I am.”

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Jeremy Hellickson pitched six solid innings, Luke Scott had a tiebreaking sacrifice fly, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat Boston 2-1 on Wednesday night, snapping the Red Sox's five-game winning streak.
Hellickson (4-0) allowed one run and five hits en route to winning a career-best sixth consecutive decision, dating to Sept. 4. The right-hander struck...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Matt Joyce read it and then chanced it, and his audacious bolt for home in the sixth inning helped the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 2-1 Wednesday night in a game that was interrupted by a scary incident. Tampa Bay infielder Will Rhymes fainted in the eighth inning but didn't need a hospital visit. With the game tied 1-1, Joyce opened the...
In 2009, Menlo High School shortstop Kenny Diekroeger was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the second round and was reportedly offered just over a million dollars to join the organization. He chose Stanford and stayed close to his Northern California roots. Most players, when faced with a similar choice, follow suit.
Diekroeger has no regrets. And he thinks this season has been...
Cody Ross likes to make up for his mistakes rather quick. A day after losing a pop up in the sky that gave the Rays the winning run, the Sox outfielder gets a two out RBI single in the eighth which would be the difference in a 5-3 win.
Ross had himself a great night as he had Rays starter Matt Moore work hard tonight. Moore walked Ross with the bases loaded in the first and...
