Spring training has finally arrived after a long off-season in which the Rays have undergone a slight roster overhaul as they have brought several exciting additions to the team, with Brad Miller set to compete for the starting short stop job as well as Steve Pearce, Corey Dickerson, and Logan Morrison will fight with James Loney for the starting first base duties.
It all begins today as pitchers and catchers have officially reported, however the first game will not take place until March 2nd when the Nationals travel to Port Charlotte to take on the Rays. Unfortunately, this game will not be televised, but will be available via MLB.com audio.
The Rays will play 29 spring training games over the next five weeks and that's not including the two that will potentially take place in Cuba. Of those 29, 10 are scheduled to be televised with three of them on Sun Sports. However, all ten of those are scheduled to occur over a two week period beginning on March 8th. Also, if the games in Cuba do happen, those will likely be televised, whether by Sun Sports, or a national station like MLB Network. Whatever the case, there is plenty of watchable baseball in store.
