The Rays Tank: What’s a Run?

Brian Blanco

A run-something that the Rays haven't scored in the last 28 innings.

Three straight shutouts. THREE. The Rays have now gone a team record TWENTY EIGHT consecutive innings without scoring a run. Rays batters have just ten hits in their last 101 at bats with runners in scoring position, per SunSports.

It’s only the 11th of June, but…

Keep swinging those Speed Hitters, boys.

In other news, the Rays signed their first round draft pick, Casey Gillaspie, who received a signing bonus of $2,035,500. Gillaspie will report to the Hudson Valley Renegades today to begin his journey within the Rays organization.

Ryan Hanigan has also been activated from the DL and Ali Solis was optioned back to Durham last night.
