Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay swept the Tigers to hit a new high-water mark on Wednesday, four games over .500. The Rays are still 9.5 back of Seattle for the last playoff spot in the American League, but Seattle still has a bad month, or more, in it. Of course, Oakland is also ahead of the Rays.
But it’s more than just about making the playoffs this season. This is the most entertaining regular season story in baseball, to me. The Rays are winning in one of the toughest divisions in baseball with a bunch of young players with the third lowest payroll in the game, a few million more than Boston pays its pitching staff alone.
Ryne Stanek recently tied Sandy Koufax and Adam Wainwright for most scoreless starts before the all-star break. Of course, he’s only going two innings at a time, but it signifies a change in the game that could just be here to stay.
Kevin Cash hopes he won’t need to make a move after two innings on Friday, though. Nathan Eovaldi is a traditional starter, going on normal starters rest. He’s been simply sensational this season coming back from his second Tommy John surgery.
Tampa Bay’s offense will face a former pitcher, who many of them don’t know, not because he wasn’t there recently (he left the Rays this last offseason), but because the whole lineup is basically new youngsters.
Jake Odorizzi was never a household name, nor was he supposed to push the Twins over the top of anything, but he ha been underwhelming with his new team, as castaway Rays starters often are.
He’s 4–6 in 19 starts with the worst WHIP and one of the worst ERA’s of his career, though neither are far from what he’s generally done over the years.
His strikeout rate has spiked to 9.5 Ks per nine innings after averaging exactly 8.0 for each of the last three seasons.
