Rays slide further out of the picture
Tampa Bay Rays: 22-26
The Rays continued to be plagued by inconsistencies, an unreliable starting rotation, and an on-again-off-again offence.
After losing three of four to the Marlins, they followed suite by coughing up the series against the Yankees to end the week, marring Jake Odorizzi’s strong start on Sunday afternoon. The Rays still have not hit the right stride of offensive power and rotation dominance to propel them past being the middling team they are currently.
They Rays have the AL Central to look forward too, ending the week playing a four-game set against the lowly Twins. They will hope to find some consistencies on the road. The Rays will hope for the quick return of Logan Forsythe and Kevin Kiermaier to help handle offensive and defensive woes. Their rotation will also be searching find the strength that it has shown all too infrequently this season.
The Rays will look to make advancements as the rest of the AL East duke it out against each other. They’ve shown with consistency, they can be amazing. This’d be a prime week to find it.
