The Debut: Nick Anderson

Photo by Mark Brown/Getty Images From incarceration to redemption It was the summer of 2011, and 21 year old Nick Anderson was in trouble. Anderson had just been arrested and was about to possibly be charged with second degree assault. During some late night heavy drinking with buddies out on the town, Anderson got into a heated altercation during which he struck another patron of the bar in the head with a bat, allegedly in self-defense. Anderson got off relatively easy. He was charged with...

Rays option former first-rounder Brendan McKay, six others

The Rays cut seven players from their 26-man roster Thursday, as per a team announcement.  Outfielder Randy Arozarena, right-hander Trevor Richards, left-hander Anthony Banda, infielders Nate Lowe and Mike Brosseau, first baseman/outfielder Brian O’Grady and two-way player Brendan McKay are were all optioned to Triple-A. Given how the Rays so often shuttle players from Triple-A and the big leagues, it’s safe to assume all seven of these names will wind up seeing action for the club...

Faux-pening Day Game Day Thread: Game 162 on Cut4 Twitter (11 a.m.)

MLB is doing a great job pushing out some throwback content on Opening Day; good on y’all!

Today should be Opening Day. Of course, there are far more pressing issues going on not just in the U.S. but around the world, but even still, it hurts quite a bit not having live baseball today to distract when it would be more useful than ever.

However, in lieu of live baseball, why not watch the second-best possible thing: Game 162 from 2011 at the Trop!

Ryan Newell, Independent League closer, could help the 2020 Rays

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports You know, if a season happens. It was a surprising move when the Rays traded their 20-save closer off a 96-win playoff team for outfield depth, but the front office was confident in the teams depth. That starts with the return of 2018 saves leader Jose Alvarado returning to baseball, and it extends well into the minor league side. So deep is the Durham Shuttle roster that many names could surprise in 2020, it’s easy to miss a few names along the way, such as...
