Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Wilson Ramos expected to go on the disabled list

A very disappointing series in Minnesota. The Rays scored 35 runs over the four games, but still dropped three of the contests, thanks to poor pitching performances. It took a record setting onslaught by the offense for the Rays to take a victory, as they tallied 19 runs on Saturday.

To add to the disappointment, All-Star catcher Wilson Ramos, pulled a hamstring as he was trying to beat out a groundball. He would be removed from the game, and has been removed from the All-Star game roster. Although he was still on the active roster for yesterday’s series finale, Ramos is expected to be placed on the disabled list and according to Marc Topkin, he could be out through the trade deadline.

The Rays lost yesterday after a very poor pitching and defensive showing in the 7th in which walks, errors, and a balk allowed the Twins to take the lead. The benches would soon clear after Brian Dozier did his best Carlos Gomez impersonation as he jubilantly scored the go-ahead run on the balk call. Diego Castillo was a bit wild and the Twins took exception, ultimately leading to three bench clearing incidents within a 10 minute time frame.

Following the game, the Rays optioned Andrew Kittredge to Triple-A, with a corresponding move yet to be announced.
