How the Rays Became MLB’s Outliers by Finding MLB’s Outliers

The Rays are the Antiques Roadshow of baseball. They find Picassos in attics, Tiffany lamps in basements and pitchers with outlier stuff in the dumpsters of other organizations.

In Fairbanks they saw not just velocity but also near-perfect backspin on his four-seamer, which they and other smart clubs know is the proven antidote against the launch-angle hitting revolution. To get Fairbanks they traded Nick Solak, a promising hitter without great defensive value.

Since joining the Rays, Fairbanks has improved his stuff even more, thanks to the wizardry of pitching coach Kyle Snyder and process and analytics coach Jonathan Erlichman, a former math major and club hockey player at Princeton.

“Our guys do a tremendous job looking for the guys they acquire as far as special, special stuff,” Rays manager Kevin Cash says. “[Fairbanks] is right at the top of the list. You don’t see many guys with that high average (velocity) and the type of carry that he gets and have the ability to land a really, really quality breaking ball.

“He’s basically Diego Castillo. He four-seams it. Diego sinks it. Both throw their breaking ball, which is nasty, at any time.”

Are there graves under Tropicana Field parking lots? Archaeologists want to find out

Thirty years ago, residents stepped forward when the city prepared to pave parking lots 1 and 2 for Tropicana Field.

They thought caskets were under those 12 acres on the corner of 16th Street South and spreading from Third Avenue South to Fifth Avenue South.

It was once the home to Oaklawn Cemetery, the city was told, and bodies were likely left behind when it was moved in the mid-20th century.

Oaklawn was adjacent to two other cemeteries. In 1976, human remains were unearthed from one of those properties during construction, years after the burial grounds were supposed to have been moved, bolstering the belief that bodies were also under the parking lot land.


But the land was paved without further investigation.

“More should have been done. It was the right thing to do,” said Louis Claudio, a self-proclaimed “avocational archaeologist.”

Rays’ Blake Snell says MLB players should be fully rewarded for taking the maximum risk

“On Wednesday, Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Blake Snell echoed Clark’s condemnation of the MLB plan, saying he would not play in 2020 if he wasn’t paid the salary laid out in his contract, considering the health risks he would be taking by simply showing up to the ballpark.

“Y’all gotta understand, man, for me to go — for me to take a pay cut is not happening, because the risk is through the roof,” Snell, the 2018 American League Cy Young winner, said in a video posted to social media. “It’s a shorter season, less pay.. . .

“No, I gotta get my money. I’m not playing unless I get mine, okay? And that’s just the way it is for me. Like, I’m sorry you guys think differently, but the risk is way the hell higher and the amount of money I’m making is way lower. Why would I think about doing that?”“

Everything’s Up to Date in Tampa Bay

From time to time, one encounters a fan who takes an interest in a non-hometown team. Often it is a sentimental attachment to a team based in a city where one spent one’s formative years. Sometimes a fan becomes enthralled with an individual player and by default becomes a fan of the player’s team. And sometimes it is a vicarious identification with a winning team or an underdog.

For my part, in recent years I have followed the fortunes of the Oakland A’s and the Tampa Bay Rays. I’ve never lived in either of those locations, and I’m not a fan of any one player, so I guess you can put me in the underdog category.

As fans are well aware, both franchises have to deal with limited budgets year after year. Also, both play in ballparks that are typically at the bottom of the rankings posted by stadium mavens, and for various reasons their municipal hosts can’t seem to agree on locations for new digs. Nevertheless, the A’s and Rays usually field competitive teams and reach the postseason more often than a lot of franchises with more resources facing less daunting challenges. It may well be their Herculean struggles against their handicaps will never result in a title; on the other hand, a Cinderella team could be taking shape even as I write this.

In recent months, however, I find my admiration for the Tampa Bay franchise is dwindling. It has nothing to do with on-field performance. It’s strictly because of what’s been going on behind the scenes.

Sadly, I doubt that’s about as far as they can go…..

Rays prospect Garrett Whitley hit in face by foul ball, taken to hospital

SARASOTA — Rays minor-league outfielder Garrett Whitley was hit under the right eye by a foul ball during Monday’s game and taken to a Sarasota hospital with a facial injury.

Whitley was sitting on the bench in the Rays dugout when he was struck by a ball hit sharply by Baltimore’s Renato Nunez. It bounced through the opening between two screens in front of the dugout in the fourth inning of the 3-3 tie.

Manager Kevin Cash said Whitley, 22, did not lose consciousness and was not bleeding extensively, both good signs. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays and/or scans, then later discharged and said to be resting at home. The Rays expect to have an update on Tuesday.

“That was pretty scary,” Cash said. “From the initial test and exams, he was coherent, his eyes were moving fine. He’s going to have a pretty good welt. ... The only blood that I saw was a little bit out of his nose, and then almost like the seam of the baseball split him just a little bit (under the eye), not like a gash.”

Wondering about Wander? Take a look during Rays’ next games

He’ll be playing on Thursday and Friday.

Joe Ryan had his Wander moment last year during an early afternoon, late-season game with the advanced Class A Charlotte Stone Crabs.

“No one had put the ball in play for like six innings and some guy hit a ball up the middle and I was like, ‘(Darn), he hit it pretty hard,’” Ryan recalled. “And Wander just — all of I sudden I turn around — and it was almost like out of (the movie) For the Love of the Game, where the shortstop slides through, picks it up and flips it to first. I was like, ‘Wow, that was sick.’


“That side of him I hadn’t seen before, and that was really exciting. We talked about it later in the dugout, and he was saying, ‘Yeah, I realize what I need to do in the big leagues, and I want to be in the big leagues for a long time.’

“And not like he wasn’t taking it serious before, but he was just like, ‘I really need to focus.’ And it was awesome to hear that when we were just sitting there talking, and then to see him do it day in and day out with the consistency that he has.”

Crowd-seeking Rays come up with win-win-win free ticket plan

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays are offering fans a win-win-win-win proposition.

Trying to draw bigger crowds to barren Tropicana Field, the Rays came up with a crowd-pleasing ticket plan Wednesday.

The ``Win Pack” lets a fan pick any four regular-season Rays game to attend for a total of $99. If the Rays win all four, the fan gets a voucher redeemable for a free ticket to another game.

The Veecks cannot say that they are impressed by this level of showmanship…..

Sternberg: Talk of selling share of Rays to Montreal group untrue

Eventually, if the radical plan to split seasons between Tampa Bay and Montreal starting in 2028 comes to fruition, principal owner Stuart Sternberg expects to sell a minority interest in the team to his partners in Montreal.

But Sternberg said Montreal group leader Stephen Bronfman was incorrect in saying those negotiations were underway and a sale could be completed in the next three-four months.

“It isn’t true,’’ Sternberg said Saturday at Rays camp. “Eventually, at a point, I would expect and believe they could and would become minority partners. ... I need some representation up there. But there’s nothing happening in months. No way.’’

Bronfman’s comments, saying the talks were in advanced stages, appeared in a lengthy article about the effort in the French language Le Journal de Montreal.

The groups last week said they working on an aggressive timeline to get agreements in place by the end of 2020 for new open-air stadiums in Montreal and either Tampa or St. Petersburg and permission from Major League Baseball to implement the radical plan starting in 2028.

Rays trade Emilio Pagán to Padres for Manuel Margot and a prospect

TAMPA (WFLA) – The Tampa Bay Rays have traded reliever Emilio Pagán to the San Diego Padres for outfielder Manuel Margot and catcher/outfielder Logan Driscoll, according to The Athletic.

Pagan had a breakout season with the Rays in 2019 appearing in a career-high 66 games, and had a team-high 20 saves with 96 strikeouts to 13 walks.

Margot will be the second Padres outfielder added to the Rays this offseason following a trade back in December that sent Tommy Pham to San Diego in exchange for Hunter Renfroe, Xavier Edwards & a player to be named later.

There’s no chance this trade will also end up baroque as all get out, is there?

MLB: Montreal sharing plan ’100 percent’ best way to keep Rays in Tampa Bay

ORLANDO — Major League Baseball officials and owners now see the season-sharing plan with Montreal proposed by the Rays as the best way — “100 percent” — to keep a team, albeit part time, in the Tampa Bay market, commissioner Rob Manfred said Thursday.

“People continue to believe that the two-city alternative they’re exploring is viable and could be a really good solution for keeping baseball in Tampa Bay,’’ Manfred told the Tampa Bay Times after a scheduled owners meeting.

“I continue to be impressed by the energy that they’ve devoted to the project. And to the fact there is significant receptivity among our group, and excitement in some quarters about the possibility.’‘

Manfred said Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg had made a strong case to the owners, which mirrors the comments team officials have made publicly about the Montreal plan being their primary focus.

There’s no way that this idea isn’t going to backfire on everyone involved, is there?

The Astros needed a good GM, but the Rays didn’t deserve to lose James Click

The Houston Astros needed a general manager. He’d be somebody to steer the franchise toward a little dignity, around the draft vacancies and talent craters sure to come, and away from the self-inflicted humiliation reflecting from recent seasons. Guy’s not going to sleep much, in part because the roster he inherited seems to have overrun the manager who just left. There’s a lot to do. A lot to fix. A lot to heal.

Team owner Jim Crane on Monday, with spring training opening in a week, chose James Click, a dedicated baseball man who in 15 years had risen from intern to vice president of baseball operations with the Tampa Bay Rays, just beneath Erik Neander on the baseball ops depth chart. This, just days after Crane hired a manager, Dusty Baker, and gave him but a season’s worth of security.

Click earned the job. He knows the industry. He is smart. People like him. He’ll probably make a fine general manager. He could not turn down a career opportunity that hardly ever comes along.

The Astros should not have hired him.

Normally, I’m not a fan of the pinata-post style of article commentary- but I’m legitimately having trouble following this argument, and I’m trying to figure out if it’s a failure on my end or not.

Tampa Bay Rays re-sign first baseman Carlos Pena

Big time rush…to sign him!

The Tampa Bay Rays have re-signed first baseman Carlos Pena, the Tampa Bay Times has confirmed.

Pena has seemed a good fit to return to the Rays throughout the off-season, as we’ve written and talked about repeatedly.

Pena played for the Rays from 2007-10, then moved to the Cubs last season. Agent Scott Boras told the Tampa Bay Times last week that Pena was open to a return to the Rays, where he had success and enjoyed the experience, and Pena told MLB Network Radio last week he was considering several options. He made $10-million last season with the Cubs.

Former Oriole Luke Scott signs one-year deal with Tampa Bay

Luke Scott: Rebirtherr.

Luke Scott, the outspoken, energetic slugger who spent four seasons in Baltimore and was named the 2010 Most Valuable Oriole, has agreed to a one-year deal with the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays that includes a 2013 option, according to an industry source.

Exact terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Scott, 33, was in his final year of arbitration after making $6.4 million in an injury-marred 2011 that ended in July, when he decided to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. In December, the Orioles decided not to tender him a contract—he would have made at least $6 million and likely more—and allowed him to become a free agent.

There was talk that the club wanted him back on a lesser deal, but the Orioles never made a push this offseason to re-sign him.

How The Greg Reynolds Trade Is More Interesting Than You Think

How could it possibly be more interesting?

We’ll begin with the biggie. Reynolds, of course, was selected second overall by the Rockies in 2006. He was selected right after Luke Hochevar, and right before Evan Longoria. The Rockies’ selection of Reynolds was thought to be a reach, and it took the Rays by surprise. The Rays had another plan, assuming the Rockies would take Longoria. That plan? Andrew Friedman:

We had Evan Longoria first on our board…We thought Longoria was going to go two to Colorado, and we had cut a deal with Tim Lincecum, to take three….

Reynolds’ failures were magnified because the Rockies nearly drafted Long Beach State third baseman Evan Longoria before turning to the Stanford pitcher. At the time, the Rockies felt starting pitching was more of a priority with Garrett Atkins and [Ian] Stewart both in the fold.

Jonah Keri: The Myth of the Small-Market Window

We’re not selling blinds here.

There is a nugget of truth behind this Window obsession. Smaller-revenue teams have a tougher time signing premium free agents, or retaining their own top players past their initial six years of team control. That puts extra pressure on these poorer teams to bring up a bunch of great prospects all at once, then hope they get good at the same time before they get expensive.

But far more often it’s a bullshit excuse. It’s a vague, faraway goal that always seems several years out of reach. It’s a cover for cheap, greedy ownership, lousy scouting, drafting, and player development, and myopic trades. It’s a weak attempt to placate a fan base screwed over by years of management incompetence and indifference.

Or in the case of the Oakland A’s, their recent fire sale and justification for said fire sale, it’s a bold-faced ploy by one opportunistic owner to win territory from another opportunistic owner so that another city can hand out another $500 million check for another boondoggle stadium.

Cubs Sign Andy Sonnanstine

In yet another “buy low” move, the Cubs have signed former Rays righthander Andy Sonnanstine to a non-guaranteed split contract—i.e. he’ll make more if he makes the major league team.

Sonnanstine looked promising in his first two seasons with the Rays, particularly in 2008 when he posted a 101 ERA+ and had an excellent walk ratio of 1.7 per nine innings and had two good starts for the Rays in the 2008 postseason. But he has regressed the last three years, was banished to the Rays’ bullpen and spent much of 2011 at Triple-A Durham.

Sonnanstine will be 29 in March. He’s a reclamation project, but at that age he’s got a much better chance to be productive than the retreads (Doug Davis, Ramon Ortiz, Rodrigo Lopez) that Jim Hendry signed last year.

Thanks to Pete.

Report: Jorge Posada could play for Rays

Yup, seeing that Posada hit about a buck eighty away from Yankee Stadium the last two seasons…

If Jorge Posada has any baseball juice left, he could try to squeeze it out in Tampa Bay.

ESPN Deportes is reporting the Rays are interested in perhaps inking the veteran Puerto Rican to be a part-time first baseman, designated hitter and play a little at his “old” position at catcher.

ESPN Deportes also indicated the Phillies and Orioles are interested parties for 40-year-old veteran’s services, though it is not yet known if the ex-Yankees star is ready to call it quits.

A role for Posada, who has 275 career homers and 1.065 RBIs, in Tampa Bay could make the most sense, except that veteran starting catcher Jose Molina is a well-seasoned 36-year-old.

While Tampa Bay continued to win in the majors, it also restocked its system. The Rays received five youngsters from the Cubs for Garza, including three quality prospects in shortstop Hak-Ju Lee, righthander Chris Archer and outfielder Brandon Guyer.

The exodus of seven free agents gave Tampa Bay 10 compensation draft choices and an unprecedented 12 picks in the first two rounds. The Rays’ first two picks weren’t supposed to get to them, high school righthander Taylor Guerrieri at No. 24 and Louisiana State outfielder Mikie Mahtook at No. 31, and they continued to blend college players and prep talent afterward.

Rays: Sonnanstine non-tenderered, Howell gets contract

Huh? I’m still waiting on Dan Pleasesac’s promised Cy Youngy-breakout season from Sonnanstine.

On Howell: Friedman noted how much a grind the season seemed to be on Howell physically and mentally coming off major shoulder surgery and seemed confident 2012 will be better. “We’re big believers in who J.P. is and what he’s done to put himself in a position to have a good 2012 season. J.P. is one of those guys you bet on. And we’re optimistic he’ll be part of a hopefully well-above average bullpen.’’ He said they hope Howell - a free spirit as it is - “takes this winter to relax and clear his mind and come into spring free and clear and get back to strutting off the mound.’‘

Howell made $1.1-million last season, and isn’t going to be in line for much of a raise, so the Rays could end up with a bargain. On the other hand, Howell got paid $1.8-million for the 2010 season he missed after the surgery.

On Sonnanstine: Friedman made a point of acknowleding how large a role Sonnanstine played in their success over the last four seasons, saying “we’ve all been through so much together.’‘’ But with the rotation deep and the bullpen taking shape, Friedman said there was no longer “an optimal fit” for Sonnanstine.  “Looking back we thank him for everything he did, looking forward we felt like there would be better opportunities for him elsewhere.’‘

Sonnanstine made $912,500 last season and also would have likely gotten a small raise, so the Rays can rellocate that money elsewhere.
