Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Full squad up

Monday will be the first day with all 66 Rays at camp

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In the long list of items we can check off to officially inch closer and closer to the actual season, Monday will be the first day of camp with all 66 Rays present.

Now we just need to zoom ahead to Friday (first spring training game), and then quickly to March 28 (Opening Day for the Rays), and then to October 29 (when the Rays win their first title in franchise history; book it).

It may seem like baby steps, but we’re definitely getting there. Slowly but surely.

Quote of the Day

Kevin Kiermaier seems like he’s on a mission this spring to prove just how great he can be. I’m very here for this.
