RAYS SIGN ALEXEI RAMIREZ Today the Rays signed nine-year veteran SS Alexei Ramirez, who was released by the Padres last Sunday he will wear No. 24 Ramirez was the Padres Opening Day starter and batted.240 with 5 HR and 41 RBI in 128 games he will turn 35 on Sep 22, making him the oldest Rays player this season and just the 10th Ray to be 30 years of age or older, fewest in the AL he is the oldest to play shortstop for the Rays since 36-year-old Rey Sanchez in DUFFY TO HAVE SURGERY TOMORROW SS Matt Duffy will undergo left heel surgery tomorrow in Charlotte, N.C. Dr. Bob Anderson, team orthopedist for the NFL s Carolina Panthers, will perform the surgery Duffy will return to Tampa on Saturday and miss the remainder of the season Duffy began the season with the Giants and played in their first 70 games, but missed their final 35 games with an Achilles strain before he was traded to the Rays at the deadline he played in 21 games with the Rays including 19 starts, all at SS. MOTTOLA MAKES DEBUT Named Rays hitting coach on Tuesday replacing Derek Shelton, Chad Mottola will join the Rays for the first time today he becomes the seventh hitting coach in club history after spending the last three seasons as a minor league hitting coordinator for the Rays the former outfielder was selected fifth overall in the 1992 June Draft by the Cincinnati Reds one pick before the Yankees selected Derek Jeter in 16 professional seasons he was with eight different organizations including time in every AL East system except the Yankeees he played in 59 major league games over parts of five seasons and hit 4 HR, including his last in 2004 off Rays TV analyst Brian Anderson. DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY The Rays are 19 games through a stretch of 36 consecutive games vs. teams not only above.500, but within 4.0 games of a postseason berth (at the time the Rays played them and currently) they are 9-10 so far their only remaining series vs. a sub-.500 team (currently) is Sep at CWS the Rays have played a MLB-most 101 games vs. teams currently at.500 or better, and are (.386) in those games in contrast, the Rays are (.541) vs. teams currently under.500 if the standings remain as they are, they would finish the season with 121 games vs. clubs at.500 or better, the highest mark since Baltimore in 2010 (123). SINCE THE BREAK The Rays are (.500) since the All Star Break after going (.386) in the first half only the Reds have shown greater improvement (32-57 to 25-24) the Rays 3.61 ERA is 4th best in the majors since the break the Rays were 24th in ERA (4.57) the first half since the break, the Rays hold the majors 3rd-best run differential (+45, ) behind the Red Sox (+85) and the Cubs (+82) Rays had an AL-worst -74 run differential before the All-Star break over the last 17 wins they have outscored opponents, RAYS vs. YANKEES The season series is tied at 6 games apiece Rays have outscored New York, 59-44, primarily because they are outhitting the Yankees.324 (22-for-68) to.205 (15-for-73) with RISP in the 12 games Rays were 7-12 last season, their only losing campaign vs. the Yankees in the last seven years the Rays (.528) record vs. NYY since 2010 is the best among AL teams Rays come to Yankee Stadium having lost their last six series here while going 6-12 this is the Rays 14th 4-game series in the Bronx, and they have won only two (1999 and 2005) they are at new Yankee Stadium after going at the original the Rays have outhomered the Yankees all-time in this park, RAYS AND YANK-K-K-K-K S Rays pitchers struck out 169 Yankee hitters last season that s the most times a Yankee team has struck out in one season vs. an opponent since 1913 when data is first available this season, the Rays are on pace to strike out 163 Yankees which would be be the second most. I LOVE NEW YORK Evan Longoria went 7-for-11 (with 6 RBI) in the Rays last visit here, Aug 12-14, and as a result, passed Nick Markakis as the all-time leader in career hits among visiting players at new Yankee Stadium with 74 Evan s 10 hits here in 2016 are one shy as the most by a visiting player (TOR Edwin Encarnacion, 11) Evan s 47 career RBI here are the most by a visiting player and his 15 HR are tied with Encarnacion and BOS David Ortiz for 2nd most among visitors behind TOR Jose Bautista (17) of his 31 HR overall vs. the Yankees, 29 have come as a 3B only one third baseman has hit more career home runs vs. NYY: Brooks Robinson (34) in Longo s career, he has played 59 games at 3B in either new or old Yankee Stadium and has made only one error the only error came here on July 27, 2013 on a ground ball hit by Ichiro Suzuki. LONGORIA ON TRACK FOR BEST SEASON WITH BAT, GLOVE Rays 3B Evan Longoria s throwing error yesterday snapped a 32-game errorless streak he has made only 3 in his last 79 games he has not made an error on the road since June 4 at MIN (also a 32-game streak) his.977 fielding pct. currently ranks as a career-high, and offensively, he is only 2 HR, 19 hits and 8 XBH of matching his career highs only one AL third baseman has finished a season with at least 30 home runs and a.977 fielding pct.: CWS Joe Crede in 2006 (30,.978). A STORMY RELATIONSHIP Rays 3B Evan Longoria has 7 career HR off tonight s Yankees starter LH CC Sabathia according to the Elias Sports Bureau, only one active batter-pitcher matchup has produced more home runs: NYY Brian McCann vs. LAA Ricky Nolasco (8) there are six other matchups that have produced 7 including Longoria vs. BAL Chris Tillman. KK STREAKING With 3 hits yesterday, CF Kevin Kiermaier extended his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games (.356, 16-for-45), which ties Evan Longoria (May 29 June 8) for the longest by a Ray this season it is the AL East s longest current hitting streak KK been successful in his last 14 stolen base attempts dating back to late-april his 88.9 pct. success rate (16-for-18) leads the AL he s currently tied with Ben Zobrist (2010) for 2nd in club history behind Desmond Jennings (93.9 pct.) in Had 11 BB before the All-Star break and has a team-leading 23 BB since his 34 BB on the year are a career high.

Since moving to the No. 2 spot, is batting.282/.341/.444 (35-for-124) with 4 HR and 14 RBI in 32 G. 716 That s how many days it has been since tonight s starter Alex Cobb last won a game (Sep 23, 2014 at BOS) he is one 12 pitchers to return to the major leagues this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. FIGHTING THE BEASTS 2B Logan Forsythe has a.317 (64-for-202) average vs. the AL East, 2nd best (min. 100 AB) of anyone in the division behind BAL Manny Machado (.320) Logan is batting.344 (32-for-93) in enemy AL East ports, and Evan Longoria is batting.340 (34-for-100). TRENDING Rays are averaging more than 5.0 runs per game against the Yankees and Blue Jays, the only AL team to make that claim. Rays starting pitchers allowed 19 runs in the just completed 3-game series with the Orioles (1-2), their most in 3 consecutive games since allowing 21 to the Mets in a 3-game set, June 12-14, The Rays have homered in the 1st inning of 3 straight games (Kiermaier, Forsythe, Morrison) for the first time since April 16-18, 2013 at BAL gives them 25 HR in the 1st, their most frequent inning and tied for the club record (2012). The Rays have hit 184 HR this season, MOST HOME RUNS, already 4th most in club history (see SEASON, RAYS HISTORY chart) and putting them on pace for a club-record 215 the Rays rank tied for th in the majors in homers but 22nd in runs scored (578).
