    Desmond Jennings

    Rays center fielder Desmond Jennings turned the rare 8-unassisted double play in the top of the third inning during today’s game against the Athletics. After Eric Sogard singled with one out, starter Jeremy Hellickson got Coco Crisp to fly out to center. Sogard misread Jennings’ ability to catch the ball, so he rounded second hard…

  4. Rays should trade James Shields to fill holes

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    James Shields

    That the Rays will trade a starter this winter seems like a given. With David Price, James Shields, Jeremy Hellickson, Matt Moore, Alex Cobb, Jeff Niemann and Chris Archer all under contract, the Rays possess both quality and quantity in the rotation. What they don’t have are bats and a lot of money, so with…

    The Rays may have an Upton in their lineup next season after all. While B.J. Upton declined a one-year, $13.3 million qualifying offer earlier today and is expected to land a lucrative multi-year contract in free agency, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com hears from rival executives that the Rays might emerge as the front-runners to pull…

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  9. White Sox beat Rays, gain ground on Tigers

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:31 PM EDT

    Alex Rios

    The White Sox still aren’t hitting. Fortunately, Gavin Floyd and the bullpen were good enough to overcome that for one night. Floyd allowed one run over five innings and combined with five relievers on a three-hitter Friday in a 3-1 win over the Rays. The White Sox moved to within one within one game of…

  10. Rays top White Sox for eighth straight victory

    Sep 27, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    Luke Scott

    A week ago it appeared the Rays may be reduced to the role of spoiler when they faced the White Sox and Orioles in their final seven games of the season. Now, they’re right back in it after winning their eighth straight game on Thursday night against the Pale Hose. Evan Longoria homered in the…

  11. Rays call up Triple-A strikeout leader Chris Archer

    Sep 7, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Chris Archer

    Chris Archer made two starts filling in for an injured Jeremy Hellickson earlier this season and the 23-year-old right-hander is back with the Rays for the stretch run. Archer, who ranked among Baseball America‘s top 100 prospects for both 2011 and 2012, led the Triple-A International League in strikeouts this season with 139 in 128…

    After missing 3 1/2 months with a fractured right fibula, Jeff Niemann exited his start against the Blue Jays on Saturday after just 3 1/3 innings with what was initially described as right arm tightness. It turns out the injury could end his season. According to Marc Topkin of Tampa Bay Times, Niemann is out…

  14. Rays outhit Jays 10-4, lose 2-1

    Aug 31, 2012, 11:10 PM EDT

    Jeremy Hellickson

    The Rays lost for an MLB-high 11th time while allowing two runs or less Friday in dropping a 2-1 game to the Blue Jays. Tampa Bay outhit Toronto 10-4 in the contest, but could muster only a single run, that coming when Desmond Jennings homered in the third. The Rays had pinch-runner Elliot Johnson cut…

  15. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  16. King Felix pitches perfect game against the Rays

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    6:02 p.m EDT update: Hernandez is perfect, getting a called third strike on Sean Rodriguez to end the ninth. It’s the first perfect game in Mariners history, and the Rays became the first team ever to be on the losing end of three perfect games. Hernandez ended up striking out five of the final six…

  17. Rays facing decision with Jeff Niemann on the way back

    Aug 15, 2012, 1:24 PM EDT

    Jeff Niemann

    Jeff Niemann, out since mid-May with a fractured leg, allowed four runs in 3 1/3 innings in his second rehab start for high-A Charlotte on Tuesday. He’s still probably two rehab starts away from rejoining the Rays, but his return could prompt a roster crunch. Alex Cobb, Niemann’s rotation replacement, has won his last three…

    UPDATE: A deal could still happen, but if it does, Justin Upton will NOT be involved. 3:22 AM: That’s the word from FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. He doesn’t know who it is they’re targeting, but he believes they might be willing to use Justin Upton and/or a top pitching prospect to get it done. There’s maybe only…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  20. Zack Greinke gets no help in losing Angels debut

    Jul 29, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Without the injured Mike Trout at the top of the lineup, the Angels got nothing going offensively Sunday  and took a 2-0 loss to the Rays in Zack Greinke‘s debut. Greinke, who was acquired from the Brewers on Friday, was strong in striking out eight over seven innings, but Jeremy Hellickson was better, blanking the…
