George Springer, Toronto Blue Jays in agreement on deal

Outfielder George Springer and the Toronto Blue Jays are in agreement on a deal, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Springer is headed to the Blue Jays’ spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida, for a physical. Springer, the sparkplug for the Houston Astros’ offense in the leadoff spot for the past four seasons, was one of the most coveted free agents on the market this offseason. He hit a team-high 14 home runs this season and added another four in the postseason, as the Astros lost to the Tampa Bay Rays in the ALCS. While some of […]

Blake Snell stunned but excited by move to San Diego Padres as trade finalized

Blake Snell gave up the ball in Game 6 of the World Series, shaking his head after manager Kevin Cash’s curious pitching change. With three years left on his contract, Snell hardly considered that could be his final moment as a Tampa Bay Ray. The San Diego Padres, determined to go all the way, just wanted him that much. The upstart Padres ended their acquisition of the ace left-hander from the Rays on Tuesday, sending four prospects in exchange for the 2018 American League Cy Young Award winner. The Rays will receive right-handers Luis Patino and Cole Wilcox and catchers Francisco Mejia and […]

Los Angeles Dodgers to start Tony Gonsolin opposite Tampa Bay Rays’ Blake Snell in World Series Game 6

The Dodgers spent Monday, what could be their final day before becoming World Series champions, isolated from the world in a resort outside Dallas. It was their 25th day in the bubble. The hotel has become home for this strange playoff run. It wasn’t how they envisioned ending their 32-year title drought, but 2020 doesn’t care for expectations or convenience. They would like nothing more than to end their residency after Game 6 of the World Series at Globe Life Field on Tuesday night. The Dodgers hold a three-games-to-two series lead over the Tampa Bay Rays. A fourth win separates them from their first […]

Clayton Kershaw beats Tampa Bay Rays again as Los Angeles Dodgers move one win away from Series

As Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts strolled to the mound with two outs in the top of the sixth inning, a chorus of boos rained down from the crowd at Globe Life Field. Even though this was Game 5 of Major League Baseball’s first neutral-site World Series, Dodgers fans have overrun the stadium, and they let their feelings be known: They did not want Roberts to remove Clayton Kershaw from the match. Roberts did not abide, and as Kershaw strode off the mound, it was to a sound too often unfamiliar to him in October: cheers. If ever there was a postseason to […]

Los Angeles Dodgers take game 1 of World Series

Going into his Game 1 World Series start for the Los Angeles Dodgers versus the Tampa Bay Rays in Arlington, Texas, Kershaw’s pedestrian 11-12 career playoff record and 4.31 ERA is nearly two full runs worse than his 2.43 career ERA and unheard of 175-76 record. His career 5.40 World Series ERA in five prior starts and his October struggles follow Kershaw 12 months a year every year, and will until the future Hall Of Fame lefty exorcises his playoff demons. It didn’t matter that the 32-year-old winner of three Cy Young Awards, one MVP and five league ERA titles […]

Tampa Bay Rays take game 2 against Astros, lead 2-0

Two games in a row now, the difference in the Tampa Bay Rays defeating the Houston Astros in the ALCS has come down to one play. The Rays, as anybody who has watched them this campaign know, make plays. The Astros, in what sealed their fate in Game 2 on Monday, did not. One play — one throw in fact — was what spelled defeat for the Astros this time. Jose Altuve shorted a throw to first base in the first inning. Yuli Gurriel couldn’t dig it out. An easy third out turned into another opportunity for the Rays with two runners on base. And […]

Tampa Bay Rays rely on bullpen depth in another one-run win to open ALCS

After his team locked up yet another one-run victory by beating the Houston Astros 2-1 in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Sunday, Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash wouldn’t attribute that success to anything but bullpen depth. “Our analytical guys might think they’re lucky or fluky, but, no, I don’t think that,” Cash said after the Rays improved to 16-5 in one-run games this season, including the playoffs. That .762 winning percentage in such contests is the best of any team in baseball history, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. After the Rays overcame an early 1-0 deficit, Tampa Bay […]

Rays earn AL playoff spot with doubleheader sweep of Orioles

The Tampa Bay Rays clinched a return trip to the postseason, using a strong pitching performance to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in the opener of a doubleheader before cranking up the offense in a 10-6 triumph Thursday night that completed the sweep. In the opener, Blake Snell and Diego Castillo combined on a three-hitter in a 3-1 win. Needing a sweep to get into the AL playoffs for the second year in a row, the Rays got homers from Willy Adames, Hunter Renfroe and Joey Wendle before using a four-run fifth inning to take a 10-6 lead. Earning a playoff […]

A’s to start Sean Manaea against Rays in wild-card game

The A’s have named lefty Sean Manaea their starter for the AL Wild Card game on Wednesday against the Rays.
