Okay, so the silver linings I’m talking about today might feel a little small, but bear with me. I shall lead with this one: Tampa Bay is currently up 5-2 over Washington.
Now, for the bad news:
-We don’t know too much about the new timeline for Evan Longoria’s return. Stupid hamstring.
-Jeremy Hellickson is now on the 15-day DL with shoulder fatigue. Hellickson tweeted:
Due to Hellickson’s absence from the lineup, Chris Archer has been called up. He’ll make his Major League Debut against Washington’s Stephen Strasburg. Here’s what Rays manager Joe Maddon had to say about that matchup:
Let’s get back to something good before I figure out what the hell I’m going to have for dinner.
The Rays finally sent out one, big ol’ list of social media accounts related to the team. HALLELUJAH.
