Tampa Bay Rays News & Links: Josh Lowe is coming!

What? Ha ha ha, very funny guys. Who slapped a BLowe pic on the JLowe headline?

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Tampa Bay Rays Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports

It’s happening!

But before you get too excited, this is likely a short term move. Per Topper, Randy Arozarena is headed back to Tampa Bay for the birth of his daughter. He is expected to rejoin the team on Saturday in Detroit.

UPDATE #1: More news! Ji-Man Choi and Matt Wisler are also expected to be activated today. No word yet on all the corresponding moves.


On to the game! The Rays hammered the Red Sox 12-7 last night, while the Blue Jays took down the Yankees, extending the Rays lead to 9.5 games. David Hess got into the game late (you’ll be forgiven if you blocked that out of your memory), tying a record for the most Rays used in a season.

Tonight at 7 PM, it’s Sugar Shane against old friend Nathan Eovaldi.

Wander Franco extended his on-base streak to 37 games, passing Mickey Mantle.

At 41, Nelson Cruz becomes oldest player to hit 30 home runs in a season.

Do the Mets employ a faith healer? This doesn’t sound right.

Gerrit Cole left last night’s game with hamstring tightness.

Old friend John Curtiss needs Tommy John surgery.

What —

Rays legend Kyle Farnsworth was dumb on the internet, and the internet wasn’t having it.

Charles Curtis on the rise of the intentional balk.

How can you not be romantic about baseball?

The Hall of Fame induction ceremony is today at 1:30 PM. Some guy named Jeter is getting in, along with Cardinals/Brewers/Braves catcher Ted Simmons, Expos/Rockies/Cardinals outfielder Larry Walker, and labor lawyer Marvin Miller.

Go Rays!
