DETROIT -- Tampa Bay Rays ace Jeremy Hellickson left Comerica Park on a cart Wednesday morning after being hit in the head during batting practice.
Hellickson, last year's American League Rookie of the Year, was in the Rays bullpen beyond the leftfield fence when he was struck in the head by a ball hit by a Tigers player. Both teams' trainers immediately ran out to the bullpen...
James Shields has been a member of the Tampa Bay Rays for quite awhile, but his Opening Day start last week ended a significant streak for the team. It was Tampa Bay's first start from a pitcher older than 30 since June 26, 2006, when Mark Hendrickson started for the team. When Hendrickson made that start, the Rays had finished higher than last place in the AL East just once...
DETROIT (AP) -- Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson has been taken to a hospital as a precaution after being hit in the head by a ball during batting practice before Wednesday's game at Detroit.

Kyle Farnsworth’s elbow discomfort not only landed him on the disabled list, but opened up one of the game’s more interesting early season position battles. Under normal circumstances, Joe Maddon would not have to choose between Fernando Rodney and Joel Peralta to close out games, yet here he is, doing just that on a day-to-day basis. So far, Rodney looks to be the leader,...

In the big inning, its starting to look as if God created the Rays.
True to form, they saved their best for last Wednesday on a chilly Detroit afternoon in which nothing had gone right.
For eight innings against one of the best pitchers in baseball, Tigers ace Justin Verlander, the Kings of the Comeback looked utterly helpless.
They didnt get their first hit off the 2011 AL Cy...
Reigning AL Rookie of the Year Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays shut out the New York Yankees for 8 2/3 innings, allowing three hits and four walks while striking out four in a 3-0 victory. The win completed the opening series sweep of the Yanks.
Line: 8.2 IP | 3 H| 0 ER | 4 BB | 4 K; W (1-0) | QS
My fantasy perspective: Hellickson picked up right where he left off. His 2011...
B.J. Upton began his rehab assignment with the Charlotte Stone Crabs, Henry Wrigley played long ball for Montgomery in a close loss, Bowling Green is shut out by West Michigan and Durham's bats come alive in a rout of Charlotte.
It’s not a new phenomenon in sports, in fact it’s as old as the tradition of signing the National Anthem before sporting events – record companies send their talent to big events to sing the :90 song and hopefully remind some people watching that they need to buy the _________ album ASAP if they’re on-line or after the game if not.
For some reason every single playoff game...
