TAMPA BAY: 017: 80-82, third place.
MANAGER: Kevin Cash (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Denard Span, 1B C.J. Cron, RHP Nathan Eovaldi, OF Jake Bauers.
SUBTRACTIONS: 3B Evan Longoria, RHP Alex Cobb, RHP Jake Odorizzi, OF-DH Corey Dickerson, OF Steven Souza Jr., 1B Logan Morrison, 1B-DH Lucas Duda, RHP Brad Boxberger, RHP Steve Cishek, RHP Tommy Hunter, OF Peter Bourjos, INF Trever Plouffe, RHP Chase Whitley.
OUTLOOK: The Rays sport a new look after a winter of trimming payroll. In addition to the departures of Cobb and Odorizzi, the heart of a batting order that hit a club-record 228 homers ' Longoria, Dickerson, Souza and Morrison ' is gone, too. Archer, a two-time All-Star, is set to make his franchise-record fourth opening day start, and Colome is back at closer, too. The question that remains unanswered is, for how long? Cash and general manager Erik Neander aren't making any bold predictions but they insist that despite all the changes, the Rays have a chance to be a lot more competitive than it appears on paper.
MINNESOTA: 2017: 85-77, second place, lost to Yankees in wild-card game.
MANAGER: Paul Molitor (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, RHP Jake Odorizzi, DH-1B Logan Morrison, RHP Fernando Rodney, RHP Addison Reed, LHP Zach Duke, SS-3B Erick Aybar, RHP Michael Pineda.
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Bartolo Colon, C Chris Gimenez, DH-1B Kennys Vargas, LHP Hector Santiago, LHP Glen Perkins, LHP Buddy Boshers, RHP Michael Tonkin.
OUTLOOK: After their massive 26-win turnaround last season, earning Molitor the AL Manager of the Year award and a new contract through the 2020 season, the Twins were already on the upswing with their 25-and-under core of Berrios, Buxton, Sano, Rosario and Kepler. Then, after spring training began, they traded for Odorizzi and signed Morrison and Lynn, all at market-bargain prices. They've already had some setbacks, with finger surgery for Santana expected to keep him out for most or all of April, and the gut-punch news of Polanco's suspension, plus the uncertainty that surrounds Sano. But this is a team, even with the bold offseason moves made by AL heavyweights Boston and New York, and the strength of reigning AL Central champion Cleveland, that has the talent and spunk to be right in the playoff mix. With Hughes and Tyler Duffey on track for long-relief roles and a spate of well-regarded prospects set to fill out the rotation at Triple-A Rochester, this is as much starting pitching depth as the Twins have had in years. After using 16 different starters in 2017, they needed that. Rodney, Reed and Duke were important additions to bolster the bullpen, too, after Minnesota relievers ranked 22nd in the majors with a collective 4.40 ERA.
Hot teams Rays, Twins begin four-game series

MINNEAPOLIS -- Two of the hotter teams in baseball face off Thursday night when the Tampa Bay Rays travel to Minnesota where they open a four-game series with the Twins at Target Field.

Tampa Bay extended its winning streak to five games Wednesday with a 4-2 victory over Detroit and arrive in Minnesota having won 14 of their last 18 games to improve to 48-44 on the season. It assures them no worse than a .500 record at the All-Star break.

"We're getting a lot of buy-in from guys right now," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We're asking starters to come out of the bullpen, we're asking relievers to open games for us. They all want roles, and I want them to have roles, but they're also buying in."

That still leaves them 16 games behind the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox and nine back of Seattle for the final AL wild-card spot -- with equally surprising Oakland in the way, too. Optimism is high in the Rays' clubhouse.

"We're just getting started," center fielder Kevin Kiermaier said.

The Rays will go for six in a row behind left-hander Blake Snell (12-4), who gets his first start since being left off the American League All-Star squad despite leading the league with a 2.09 ERA when the selections were made.

He has dropped to second since, .04 behind Houston's Justin Verlander, but Snell is 8-1 with a 1.27 ERA over his last 10 starts

"I'm optimistic that things are going to turn out OK for Blake," said Cash, a member of the AL All-Star coaching staff. "A lot of us throughout baseball feel that he's deserving. Saying that, the guys that were selected are also very deserving. It's a product of the system a little bit."

There is still a chance he will be named to the squad, but Snell admitted it would not be the same.

"I feel like being an alternate, it's not satisfying," Snell said. "I feel like I earned it, but being an alternate, it doesn't feel the same."

Snell is 1-0 with a 4.41 ERA in three career starts against Minnesota, and he was the winning pitcher when he faced the Twins on April 21, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings in a 10-1 Rays victory.

He will hope for similar success Thursday against the Twins, who have won six of their last seven games.

Brian Dozier has been a big reason for that success. He extended his hitting streak to six games with a 3-for-5 effort that included his third home run in four games Wednesday against Kansas City. Dozier has a .961 OPS since the start of July.

"Everything feels good, has for a long time now -- you just ride the wave," Dozier said. "We've played some good baseball here lately. Six out of the last seven. This homestand, coming in we knew we had to do some damage. But still got a little ways to go, couple more games before the break."

Another big night from Dozier would be welcomed by Kyle Gibson (3-6, 3.59 ERA), who will start for the Twins on Thursday.

The right-hander has been hamstrung by a lack of run support at times this season but hasn't done himself any favors of late, posting a 5.21 ERA over his last three starts.

Gibson is 1-5 with a 6.81 ERA in seven starts previous career starts against the Rays. He was the losing pitcher in that April 21 game against Tampa Bay when Snell got the win. Gibson allowed four runs and five hits while striking out seven over 6 1/3 innings.
