DELMON YOUNG IN EXILE IN MEXICO

He was the No. 1 pick overall. People said he would be the LeBron James of baseball. Instead, Young became known for his violent temper and for being the anti-role model. How did a top prospect with such promise fall so far, so hard? And can he come back?

Kevin Cash keeps thinking outside the box with use of Sergio Romo

It was a strategic decision made possible in part because of the Angels’ right-handed-heavy lineup. With Shohei Ohtani not hitting either day, the only lefty in the lineup on Saturday was Kole Calhoun, and the starting nine on Sunday were all right-handed. Romo, with his sub-90s fastball and big, sweeping slider, has always been much better against righties, and his platoon splits have been even wider in recent seasons.

Romo was the starting pitcher on both Saturday and Sunday, although only one of those was a Rays’ “bullpen game.”  On Saturday, Ryan Yarbrough pitched 6+ innings in relief.  Will close Alex Colome get a GS this year?

Tampa Bay Rays promote LHP Jonny Venters

The greatest story of perseverance in baseball history has added another chapter.

The Tampa Bay Rays have called up left-handed pitcher Jonny Venters from Triple-A Durham.

Jonny Venters last pitched in a major league game on October 5th, 2012 while he was still a member of the Atlanta Braves.
