Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays lost on Friday night and that slipped them below surging New York in the standings. I am not expecting this team to fall apart but I am curious to see how they respond to some adversity. They are just 19th in scoring and even though they are great at run prevention that puts a lot of pressure on the pitchers. The outfield is the key, Tommy Pham was great early but has been just so-so of late and Kevin Kiermaier is not giving them much.
Charlie Morton has been a great fit as the third starter for Tampa. In fact he has been pitching like an ace with a 4-0 record and an ERA just over 2. Sometimes his walks are worrisome but he has really brought down his homer rate this season. He has been lights out on the road too, 1.27 ERA. The Rays have only lost twice when Morton has started this season.
New York Yankees
These days it seems to not even matter who the Yankees put in the lineup, they are just able to win. That has them in first place as of Saturday Morning. The way the roster is constructed right now there is no obvious strength but it is all coming together. Maybe this is the year of Gleyber Torres. He hit 24 homers as a rookie last season and already has 8 in 2019.
Weather and doubleheaders have thrown the team off schedule in the rotation. Normally J.A. Happ would have followed Masahiro Tanaka but they may need to figure out something different for this turn through the rotation. Jonathan Loiasaga could be the answer but may not be the right solution. The Yankees are 0-3 in his starts. The bullpen continues to be strong though.
