Tampa Bay Rays Details
The Tampa Bay Rays have made the postseason four times since 2008, and they have done so with one of the lowest payrolls in Major League Baseball. That is a trend that people should expect to see a lot more of moving forward, as manager Kevin Cash has the steady hand required to guide a young team.
Tampa Bay is loaded with youthful talent, and this is an organization that knows how to develop players. Look no further than the starting rotation. Chris Archer is the ace of the staff, and if you haven’t seen his jaw-dropping slider in person then get out to St. Petersburg as soon as possible. Jake Odorizzi, Alex Cobb and Matt Andriese are primed to break out at any moment. All three of them have nasty stuff, and pitcher-friendly Tropicana Field is the perfect setting for them to continue to grow. The prized prospect in the organization, though, is Blake Snell. Snell has all the tools required to be one of the league’s elite starters, and he’ll just need to show that he can stay healthy. As for the Rays’ lineup, Evan Longoria is the name that most people know. This is Longoria’s 10th year with Tampa Bay, and he has hit 30 or more homers in four years with the team, including a career-high 36 in 2016. Two other guys that opposing pitchers do not like facing are Brad Miller and Kevin Kiermaier. Miller broke out to hit 30 homers in 2016, and is arguably the best power-hitting shortstop in the American League right now. Kiermaier, meanwhile, is one of the team’s most promising hitters. He also happens to be one of the best fielders in the league at his position. Fans at The Trop should expect to see him rob a homer or two this year.
