The Tampa Bay Rays, who are 1.5 matches better than the Orioles and two games better than the Twins and White Sox, are hanging onto the final wild-card place in the AL East.


Despite being in the bottom third of MLB in runs produced, batting average, and home runs, Tampa Bay finds a way to win despite not having a lineup full of stars.

With a team ERA of 3.45, Tampa Bay ranks fourth in the league thanks to consistent pitching. Tuesday will mark the 24th appearance and 16th start of the season for Jeffrey Springs (4-3, 2.56 ERA).


Springs is 0-1 versus the Yankees this year despite only allowing two earned runs in 6 innings against them on May 27 at home. He is 3-1 with a 2.77 ERA on the road.


  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 2-5 SU in their last 7 outings against the New York Yankees.
