As Rays keep winning, the trade rumors stop

David Price – Photo Credit – Keith Allison   Nevermind their most recent loss to the Milwaukee Brewers — the Tampa Bay Rays are back. They finished off a magnificent July with a 5-0 loss to the Brew crew, but they still took two of three from them and still had a 17-6 record during the month. A 9-game game winning streak wrapped around the All-Star break put them back into...

Rays beat Brewers again, now game shy of .500

And they are playing like it, battling from behind for a second straight night to beat the NL Central-leading Brewers 5-1 Tuesday. "It's kind of funny; we've been playing...

Chris Archer: Strikeout Celebration Came In ‘Infant Stages Of My Career’

There were a lot of raised eyebrows around the baseball world when Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer called out David Ortiz for his bat flip Sunday night. Ortiz’s post-home run actions are far from universally beloved — Archer’s rotation mate, David Price, is an outspoken Papi critic — but many didn’t think the 25-year-old right-hander was one to talk regarding such matters...

2014 Fantasy Baseball Value: Is Ben Zobrist on the move?

The second wild card has thrown a monkey wrench into the whole trade deadline process. It’s even caused some people to propose pushing the non-waiver deadline back into August. The problem is that too many teams think they are still in the hunt when the deadline comes this Thursday. The Rays are one of those teams caught in no man’s land. They have tradeable pieces in David Price...

Rays begin a telling week with a victory behind James Loney's clutch hit

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- James Loney watched his soft line drive flutter toward the gap and hoped it would land. At first, when he poked right-hander Kyle Lohse's 89-mph fastball toward right-center field, he felt good about his chances to deliver as the Tampa Bay Rays' Mr. Reliable again. Still, centerfielder Carlos Gomez was closing fast, and Loney braced for the best. Then...

Rays recall righty Jeremy Hellickson, sends reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo for assignment

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays recalled right-hander Jeremy Hellickson on Saturday and designated reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo for assignment. Oviedo, 32, only appeared in 31 2/3 innings with the Rays, all this year, after he was signed before the 2013 season in hopes that he would be an effective late-relief option. However, he never realized that potential, and he finishes...

Tampa Bay Rays have sights set on solid second half
