David Price to Retire After 2022 Season

I am not sure why I feel sad for David Price and his >$270 million in career earnings,  but somehow I do. A great career, with a lot of outstanding seasons, but still the sense that there could have been something more.

Donning Clemente’s No. 21, Rays field MLB’s first all-Latino lineup

The number 21 was seemingly everywhere you looked on the field at Rogers Centre on Thursday afternoon. Specifically, it was everywhere up and down the Rays’ starting lineup.

Half of Tampa Bay’s roster, including all nine hitters who started the series finale against the Blue Jays, donned the number that famously belonged to Roberto Clemente. It was a fitting day for a historic moment.

According to the Rays, it was the first time in Major League history that a team’s lineup was made up entirely of Latino hitters. Their starting lineup included players from Cuba (Yandy Díaz and Randy Arozarena), the Dominican Republic (Wander Franco, Manuel Margot and Jose Siri), Colombia (Harold Ramírez), Venezuela (David Peralta and René Pinto) and Mexico (Isaac Paredes). The Elias Sports Bureau confirmed it was the first time all nine hitters in a starting lineup were born in a Latin American country.

And they were all wearing No. 21 to celebrate Clemente as part of MLB’s annual Roberto Clemente Day, which honors the life and legacy of the Hall of Fame player and humanitarian who recorded 3,000 hits on the field and tragically died in a plane crash on Dec. 31, 1972, while attempting to deliver emergency relief supplies to Nicaragua.

Brendan McKay To Undergo Tommy John Surgery

Rays southpaw Brendan McKay will undergo Tommy John surgery next week, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter link). He’s expected to miss the entire 2023 campaign.

It’s the latest in a staggering series of significant injuries for the former #4 overall pick. McKay hasn’t thrown a single major league pitch since 2019, as he’s been plagued by an almost unfathomable string of bad luck. He missed the shortened 2020 season on account of a shoulder problem that eventually required surgery. The rehab from that procedure kept him out of action until late June 2021. Just a few outings into a minor league rehab stint, McKay suffered a flexor strain in his forearm that again proved to be season-ending. He was then diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome and underwent surgery to correct that issue last November.

McKay spent most of 2022 on the injured list recovering from the TOS procedure. He set out on a rehab assignment in mid-July and spent his allotted 30-day window pitching back to Triple-A. The Rays then formally reinstated McKay from the IL but kept him in Durham on an optional assignment. A few days later, he suffered a UCL injury while pitching with the Bulls.

Before all of the injuries, McKay was one of the sport’s most unique young talents. A two-way superstar at the University of Louisville, he’s continued to dabble in the two-way experiment in pro ball.

Rays sign Tyler Glasnow to 2-year deal through 2024

The Tampa Bay Rays have signed right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow to a two-year contract extension through the 2024 season.

Glasnow, 29, has not pitched this season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, performed by Dr. Keith Meister on August 4, 2021. He left his start on June 14, 2021 at the Chicago White Sox after four innings due to injury. At the time of his injury, he ranked second in the majors with 123 strikeouts and ranked sixth in the AL with a 2.66 ERA (88-IP, 26-ER).

Through his rehab process, he began throwing from the bullpen on July 23 and progressed to live BP on August 20.

Drew Rasmussen takes perfect game into ninth inning in Tampa Bay Rays’ victory over Baltimore Orioles

- Drew Rasmussen took a perfect game into the ninth inning, and the Tampa Bay Rays expanded their lead over Baltimore for the final AL wild card to 1½ games with a 4-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.

Rasmussen allowed his first baserunner when Jorge Mateo doubled down the left-field line on the first pitch of the ninth. Mateo, who went 5-for-5 on Friday night, later scored on a Rasmussen wild pitch.

The right-hander struck out seven over 8⅓ innings, the longest outing of his career. He threw 62 of 87 pitches for strikes.

“I’ll take it,” Rasmussen said. “It helps our team’s chance of winning. When our team has a chance to win a game, that’s first and foremost, the most important thing.’

Former Rays outfielder, Tampa native Matt Joyce retires

Having played 14 seasons in the majors and with no offers for a 15th, former Rays All-Star outfielder Matt Joyce made official on Monday what had became increasingly obvious to him the last few months, formally announcing his retirement.

The Tampa native spent more time with the Rays — parts of six seasons — than any of his seven other teams, finishing with 149 home runs, a, .242 average, 898 hits and 503 RBIs while going to the postseason five times and earning All-Star honors in 2011. He spent last season with the Phillies in a limited role, hitting .091 (5-for-55) in 43 games while missing extended time with injuries.

Joyce, who turns 38 on Wednesday, said that following the lockout his only offer to play this season was in independent ball (which he initially accepted before changing his mind). After a few months of waiting to see if he would get another chance in 2023, he decided to call it a career.

David Peralta traded to Rays for minor leaguer

The Rays acquired outfielder David Peralta from the D-backs for catching prospect Christian Cerda, bringing aboard a veteran hitter to bolster their lineup.

“He has a history of offensive performance that we really like, and we think he’s somebody that can kind of stabilize our lineup,” Rays GM Peter Bendix said. “Good, well-rounded baseball player.”

The trade brought a whirlwind of emotions for the 34-year-old Peralta, who is expected to join Tampa Bay for Sunday’s series finale against Cleveland. He has spent his entire nine-year Major League career with Arizona, playing 961 games for the D-backs from his debut on June 1, 2014, until his last game on Friday. But that tenure included only one trip to the postseason in 2017, which ended in a three-game NLDS sweep.

Reds beat Rays via 23rd walk-off balk in MLB history

A game between the Cincinnati Reds and Tampa Bay Rays ended in bizarre fashion on Friday when, with runners on the corners and one out in the bottom of the 10th, home plate umpire Edwin Moscoso called a balk on Rays pitcher Matt Wisler.

Wisler appeared to have moved his glove to encourage catcher Francisco Mejía to go through his signs again, but Moscoso apparently thought it was too much movement. Pitchers can not halt their motion to a set position once it has begun, as Reds analyst Chris Welsh explained.

With the game tied at 1-1, the balk scored the runner on third and ended the game.

St. Pete mayor reopens talks on future of Rays stadium site

Mayor Ken Welch said Wednesday that two previous proposals for the 86-acre downtown location are being scrapped, with a new round of plans to be solicited beginning in mid-August. Welch, St. Petersburg’s first Black mayor, has made a priority of including such things as affordable housing and greater job opportunities along with Rays baseball.

Welch said the goal is to choose a new redevelopment plan by year’s end. The Rays’ Tropicana Field lease is up in 2027 and Welch said the new plan should envision including a stadium at the site.

“I don’t believe waiting a few months to get this right is unreasonable,” the mayor said at a news conference near Tropicana Field. “I think St. Petersburg is the best opportunity for the Rays. It’s about making sure we’ve got the right plan for where we are in 2022.”

The Rays have played at the domed, tilted Tropicana Field since their inaugural 1998 season. The site is in the former Gas Plant neighborhood, where Black-owned businesses and homes were uprooted for the stadium’s original development and, before that, interstate highway construction. Welch said a goal is to restore some of that former neighborhood, where his father ran a wood yard business years ago.

“It’s about rebuilding a community that was there and was dispersed,” he said, holding an ax handle from his father’s business.

Rays minority owners sue principal owner over ‘fraudulent transfer,’ other claims

The plaintiffs have alleged in multiple lawsuits that Sternberg transferred the Rays into a different business entity, Rays Baseball Club, without their knowledge. In March 2021, the same five owners — Robert Kleinert, Gary Markel, the MacDougald Family Limited Partnership, Stephen M. Waters and a trust in Waters’ name — filed a lawsuit that alleged a “scheme to squeeze out the limited partners” starting in 2004. The group owns about 9.6 percent of the Rays.

All counts in the original lawsuit but one, a request to expel Sternberg as general partner, were sent by the judge to arbitration. In May, in an attempt to dismiss that count, lawyers for Sternberg argued that the minority owners’ complaints “amount to nothing more than the personal grievances of limited partners.”

A second lawsuit, filed in February, alleged the partners had been provided with documents “with obviously altered dates” and had not been provided some documents at all…

The newest lawsuit alleges that Sternberg did not disclose that a $376 million payment from the team’s regional sports network, Fox Sports Sun (now known as Bally Sports Sun), had been received after the ownership of the team and had been transferred into the new entity.

MLB commissioner Rob Manfred says Tampa Bay Rays, Oakland A’s need new ballpark deals soon

Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred said the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland Athletics need to reach new ballpark deals soon and left open the possibility of considering relocation if agreements are not struck.

“There is urgency with respect to Tampa,” Manfred said Thursday during a news conference following an owners meeting. “There needs to be a resolution in the Tampa Bay region for the Rays.”

Tampa Bay’s lease at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, where the team has played since its inaugural season in 1998, expires after the 2027 season. The Rays said in January that MLB had rejected the team’s plan to split its season between Florida and Montreal.

“Obviously, the end of that lease is a hard deadline, but you need to take into account that stadiums take a little bit of time to build, right?” Manfred said. “So we are getting to the point where wherever it is in the region that has an interest in having 162 baseball games, they need to get to it, get with the club—I know the Rays are anxious to get something done—and see if a deal can be made.”

Asked whether he was considering relocation, Manfred responded: “Right now, I’m focused on Tampa,” putting emphasis on “right now” and later adding he was referring to the region, not the specific side of the bay. “I think a great man once said, all good things must end at some point. And but right now we’re focused on Tampa.”

Most, but not all, Rays show their LGBTQ+ support

In doing so, the team learned that not all players wanted to be included. No exact breakdown was provided, but well more than half the players appeared to participate. Pitchers Jason Adam, Jalen Beeks, Brooks Raley, Jeffrey Springs and Ryan Thompson were among those who did not, electing to peel off the burst logo and wear the standard hat.

“A lot of it comes down to faith, to like a faith-based decision,” Adam said. “So it’s a hard decision. Because ultimately we all said what we want is them to know that all are welcome and loved here. But when we put it on our bodies, I think a lot of guys decided that it’s just a lifestyle that maybe — not that they look down on anybody or think differently — it’s just that maybe we don’t want to encourage it if we believe in Jesus, who’s encouraged us to live a lifestyle that would abstain from that behavior, just like (Jesus) encourages me as a heterosexual male to abstain from sex outside of the confines of marriage. It’s no different.

“It’s not judgmental. It’s not looking down. It’s just what we believe the lifestyle he’s encouraged us to live, for our good, not to withhold. But again, we love these men and women, we care about them, and we want them to feel safe and welcome here.”

DeSantis Vetoes Funding for Tampa Bay Rays Facility Over Tweets About Gun Control: Report

Among items vetoed were funds to build the Rays’ $35 million practice facility. Outick reported DeSantis blocked the allocation after the team tweeted about recent mass shootings across the country.

Bobby Burack of Outkick wrote,

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis plans to veto a $35 million legislation for a Pasco County facility that’s earmarked for the Tampa Bay Rays’ spring training, OutKick has learned.

DeSantis’s decision is in response to the Rays politicizing recent shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde ahead of a matchup with the Yankees in May.

The report cited a tweet from the team from May 26 that asked for donations to the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety.

Rookie Detmers no-hits Rays in 11th career start

Before Tuesday’s game against the Rays, Angels manager Joe Maddon noted that while rookie lefty Reid Detmers had been improving in his recent starts, he hadn’t quite reached his top gear yet on the mound.

Detmers did more than just that, as the 22-year-old made history in just his 11th career start by throwing a no-hitter against the Rays in a 12-0 win at Angel Stadium. He struck out just two and walked one, but kept Tampa Bay’s hitters off-balance, getting 11 groundouts and eight flyouts. He needed a career-high 108 pitches to record the no-no, getting Yandy Díaz to ground out to shortstop for the final out.

It was the 12th no-hitter in Angels history and the first since Taylor Cole and Félix Peña memorably combined to throw one against the Mariners on July 12, 2019, in the club’s first home game since the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs. And it was the first individual no-hitter since Jered Weaver threw one against the Twins on May 2, 2012. It was also the second no-hitter thrown in the Majors this year, as five Mets pitchers combined to throw one against the Phillies on April 29.

Rays lose combo no-hit bid in 10th, but Kevin Kiermaier comes up big in Tampa Bay’s wild walk-off win over Boston Red Sox

Kevin Kiermaier capped Tampa Bay’s three-run 10th inning with a game-ending homer, and the Rays beat the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Saturday night after losing their bid for a combined no-hitter in the top half of the final frame.

Matt Wisler (1-0) surrendered Boston’s first hit when Bobby Dalbec opened the 10th with a triple, driving in automatic runner Jackie Bradley Jr. for a 1-0 lead. Christian Vázquez followed with a sacrifice fly to left.

Major League Baseball rules say it doesn’t count as a no-hitter until the game ends and a team finishes with no hits.

Hansel Robles (1-1) then came in for Boston and struck out the first two Tampa Bay batters in the bottom half. But automatic runner Randy Arozarena advanced on a balk and scored when Taylor Walls reached on a throwing error by second baseman Trevor Story.

After Walls swiped second, Kiermaier drove Robles’ 3-1 pitch deep to right for his first homer of the season.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, this marks the first time in baseball history that a team has lost a no-hit bid in extra innings and gone on to win in walk-off fashion. Two other teams won a game in which their no-hit bid was broken up in extra innings, but they were the road team on both occasions: the 1995 Montreal Expos against the San Diego Padres and the 1904 Chicago Cubs against the San Francisco Giants.

Detroit Tigers acquire OF Austin Meadows in trade with Tampa Bay Rays

The Detroit Tigers acquired outfielder Austin Meadows in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

Detroit sent infielder Isaac Paredes and a competitive balance round B pick in the 2022 amateur draft to Tampa Bay for Meadows, who hit .234 with 27 homers and a career-high 106 RBI last season.

Detroit is much improved after going 77-85 last year in its fifth consecutive losing season. Meadows joins a lineup that includes Javier Báez, who signed a blockbuster deal with the Tigers in free agency, and Spencer Torkelson, one of the majors’ top slugging prospects.

Meadows, who turns 27 on May 3, is a .260 hitter with 70 homers and 225 RBI in 375 career games over four seasons. He broke into the big leagues in 2018 with Pittsburgh and was traded to Tampa Bay in the Chris Archer deal that July.

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.
