What will the Tampa Bay Rays starting five look like?

Matt Moore is expected to return around June. The Tampa Bay Rays seem to have no luck in the ace department as of late. 2014 saw the trading of David Price and an injury to Matt Moore. With Price on the Tigers, and Moore out until June of this year, the Rays were left to put together a new rotation. Manager, Kevin Cash, gave Alex Cobb the opening day nod. That was until Cobb found...

2015 Player Projection: Matt Joyce

Matt Joyce was supposed to be the new DH in town, but with the Hamilton saga still ongoing, the Angels’ newest slugger is going to be counted on for a lot more in 2015. Is he up to the task? What happened in 2014?It is kind of hard to say because Matt Joyce was with the Tampa Bay Rays, so we don’t have the benefit of watching him closely all year to craft a narrative around...

Rays Prospect Forced to Shave Off Impressive Beard

Tampa Bay Rays prospect Ryan Brett made a lot of pre-season “best of” lists. Unfortunately, it had nothing to do with the second baseman’s .297 career batting average through five minor league seasons. The fuss was all about Brett’s impressive lower face foliage. On Monday, however, after being sent to the team’s minor league camp, the “Duck Dynasty” lookalike was forced...

Chris Archer interviews reporters about his start

Chris Archer is becoming one of my favorite players in the league to watch, and after his start for the Rays on Sunday, he interviewed reporters in the clubhouse about how they think he pitched. Pretty funny way to change things up. In his start against the Phillies on Sunday, Archer allowed one run on three hits over two innings, walking one and striking out one. But hey, it...

The Boston Red Sox have reportedly agreed to terms with 19-year-old infielder Yoan Moncada, and the Cuban baseball player is set to receive a $31.5 million signing bonus to join their organization.
