Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: One week till All-Star Break

The Rays took two out of three from the Rangers in Texas, and got two All-Stars selected; two is the magic number

MLB: Texas Rangers at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After dropping a lackluster opener against the Rangers on Friday, the Rays bounced back with key victories on Saturday and Sunday to win their series over fellow Wild Card contender, Texas.

Now, the team will look ahead to one, final week of baseball (all at the Trop) before getting a deserved break for the All-Star Game. On Sunday, the Rays had a pair of players named as 2019 All-Stars: Charlie Morton and Austin Meadows. Tommy Pham and Brandon Lowe (among some others) carried decent cases, but overall the voting wasn’t as heinous as it has been in past years. I honestly don’t mind most of the team getting a nice five-day break.

Baltimore comes to town on Monday, with a couple of pitching matchups that are still being ironed out (welcome to modern baseball).
