8/24/2018 @ TAMPA BAY  
8/25/2018 @ TAMPA BAY  
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.
BOSTON: 2017: 93-69, first place, lost to Houston in ALDS.
MANAGER: Alex Cora (first season).
ADDITIONS: DH J.D. Martinez.
MANAGER John Farrell, RHP Doug Fister, OF Chris Young, RHP Addison Reed, OF Rajai Davis, LHP Henry Owens, LHP Fernando Abad.
OUTLOOK: The Red Sox won 93 games last year for the second straight season and claimed the franchise's first back-to-back AL East titles. But Farrell was fired after they failed to advance in the playoffs for the fourth year in a row. The key ' and really only ' addition is Martinez, who gives them someone to replace longtime slugger David Ortiz after finishing last in the AL in homers without Big Papi in 2017. The theory behind Boston keeping up with the reloaded New York Yankees goes something like this: A full season of a healthy Price will bolster a rotation that already has a quality ace in Sale, plus 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner Porcello and All-Stars Pomeranz and Wright. The Red Sox also are staking their chances on the hope that Ramirez can be more like the player he was in 2016 (.286, 30, 111); that Pedroia will return quickly and be healthy and productive; that 20-year-old third baseman Devers will be able to stay up for a full season; and that Bradley won't have another second-half slump. The bullpen, anchored by Kimbrel, remains strong.
Rays newcomer might have trouble matching Price

BOSTON -- David Price's name is all over the Tampa Bay Rays record book. His .636 winning percentage with the team still ranks No. 1 among all pitchers.

But all of that was ages ago.

On Saturday night, Price, who has been pitching to the talent he possesses in recent starts, faces the Rays for the fifth time this season when he goes for the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of a weekend series with Tampa Bay.

Price, second only to James Shields in Tampa Bay franchise wins (82, five behind James Shields), started his 2018 season against the Rays with two seven-inning performances in which he pitched shutout ball in both. He had one poor start against Tampa Bay this season (five earned runs, two homers in 5 2/3 innings) but has a 2.10 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings against the Rays.

Lifetime since Price left St. Petersburg, he is 4-4 with a 3.32 ERA in 13 games (12 starts) against the Rays as he gets set to face tall Tampa Bay right-hander Tyler Glasnow on Saturday.

Price, who has had his problems this year and faces the choice of opting out of his contract after the season, is 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA in his last five starts. Last time out, he threw six scoreless innings with 10 Ks against the Orioles in Baltimore.

Overall this season, Price is 12-6 with a 3.75 ERA.

Glasnow, part of the package the Rays acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates for Chris Archer, is pitching well as a starter but still seeks his first decision in a Tampa uniform.

Overall this season Glasnow is 1-2 with a 3.97 ERA, and he is 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 12 innings in his three starts with his new team -- allowing one earned run in each start.

"(The Pirates) gave me so many opportunities, and I didn't show them what I could do," Glasnow told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by phone recently. "It was bittersweet, but it definitely is a good chance for me to grow. ... They didn't really have a choice. They needed to get good starting pitching, and I wasn't that in 2017."

Glasnow has never faced the Red Sox.

On Friday night, the Red Sox spotted the Rays three first-inning runs before Brian Johnson settled down, the offense kicked in and Boston moved to 51 games above .500 (87-36) with a 7-3 victory.

The win kept Boston 10 1/2 games ahead of the New York Yankees atop the American League East.

While no one on the current Boston roster has faced Glasnow, the current Rays are batting a combined .167 (16-for-96) against Price. Carlos Gomez is 1-for-23 (.043) with 10 strikeouts, Matt Duffy is 3-for-21 (.143), Kevin Kiermaier 3-for-14 (.214) with the only homer, and Daniel Robertson 2-for-9 (.222) against the left-hander.

Earlier Friday, the Red Sox placed Rafael Devers back on the 10-day disabled list with a recurrence of his hamstring problem. They also activated Ian Kinsler, also down with a hamstring.

"He felt it in Baltimore. We tried to take care of his workload," manager Alex Cora said of Devers. "I kind of noticed it on that infield hit in Philly, the last one. He kept stretching and stretching and stretching. I was like, 'There's something going on here.' I talked to him today a little bit. For how bad this guy wants to play, you've gotta be smart. We need to avoid this."

Cora called Devers "a big kid" but denied there is a weight issue contributing to the problem with the leg.

In a sign of the turnover that has hit the Tampa Bay roster, only 11 of the 25 players available Friday night were there when the Rays last visited Boston in April.
