The Tampa Bay Rays and manager Kevin Cash hope giant right-hander Tyler Glasnow figured some things out amid a nightmarish first inning at Fenway Park last Saturday night.The other members of the Rays staff certainly have.The 6-foot-8 Glasnow http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-jaime-garcia-jersey , acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Chris Archer trade, gave up four runs in that fateful first inning against the Red Sox, but yielded just one run — on a J.D. Martinez home run — after that.Article continues below ...Since that night, the Rays haven’t lost, and Glasnow now tries to finish off a four-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night at The Trop in St. Petersburg, Fla.The Rays have won four straight to move a season-high five games over .500 (66-61), partially thanks to going 6-0 against the lowly Royals, who lost their 89th game of the season Wednesday night.Danny Duffy comes off the 10-day disabled list (shoulder impingement) to pitch for the Royals on Thursday.Glasnow is 1-3 with a 4.10 ERA on the season and 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA in four starts with the Rays. He is 3-12 with a 5.51 ERA in his young career.The Tampa Bay pitching staff notched 27 straight scoreless innings, tying a club record, before yielding one run Tuesday after two straight shutouts and giving up three more runs Wednesday night.Glasnow retired the last 12 batters he faced and 17 of the last 18 to end Saturday night on a positive.Brandon Lowe and Mallex Smith drove in two runs apiece and the Rays won another game with an “opener” starting pitcher on Wednesday night. Ryne Stanek started and worked two hitless innings before Yonny Chirinos pitched five innings in relief. Sergio Romo pitched the ninth for his 18th save.The Rays stroked 10 two-out hits as their offense woke up Wednesday. The 10 two-out hits were the most by the team in a game in two years.“That’s really, really impressive, especially for an offense that has been scuffling so much,” Cash said. “There were some great hits by Mallex Yangervis Solarte Jersey , by Brandon Lowe, against a really tough left-hander (Tim Hill). We pieced together, and we needed to separate the game a little bit. It allowed us to line up the bullpen a little bit. … A lot of good offensive numbers that we kind of needed.”Duffy (7-11, 4.90) struggled in the two starts before hitting the DL, yielding 12 earned runs on 16 hits in just 11 1/3 innings. He is 2-1 with a 2.77 ERA in four career starts against the Rays, all in Kansas City.For the Royals, the misery of the 2018 season continues. They have dropped 16 of their last 20 and lost six straight series.Jakob Junis fell to 6-12 with the loss Wednesday night, giving up two earned runs in 5 2/3 innings.“He’s been consistently sharp, especially the last four outings,” said Kansas City manager Ned Yost. “I expect him to go out and make starts like this, give us a chance to win like he did.”Tommy Pham, who dislocated his right ring finger diving into a base Tuesday night, reported he felt better but that the finger was still swollen. He’s shooting for Thursday but Friday appeared more likely.“I think we avoided a pretty big scare http://www.bluejaysfanproshop.com/authentic-randal-grichuk-jersey ,” Cash said.Rookie first baseman Jake Bauers, in a 1-for-33 tailspin, was rested Wednesday, Cash saying, “He’s been pressing, there’s no denying it. He’s frustrated with himself.”Jorge Bonifacio, scratched Tuesday with lower back stiffness, rested Wednesday but was on Kansas City’s bench and available.The current Rays roster is just a cumulative 4-for-24 (.167) with no RBIs against Duffy. Carlos Gomez is 3-for-7 (.429) but the rest of the players are a combined 1-for-17 (.059). Rob Carr/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Angels offered a response to comments from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred in which Manfred seemed to criticize Mike Trout's willingness鈥攐r lack thereof鈥攖o market himself."We applaud [Trout] for prioritizing his personal values over commercial self-promotion," the Angels said near the end of their statement. "That is rare in today's society and stands out as much as his extraordinary talent."Angels AngelsToday, the #Angels released the following statement on OF Mike Trout: xFLURtZ4bTSpeaking ahead of the 2018 All-Star Game, Manfred was blunt about his belief Trout could do more to help MLB market him to those who don't follow baseball regularly, perESPN.com:"Player marketing requires one thing for sure鈥攖he player.You cannot market a player passively. You can't market anything passively. You need people to engage with those to whom you are trying to market in order to have effective marketing. We are very interested in having our players more engaged and having higher-profile players and helping our players develop their individual brand. But that involves the player being actively engaged."Manfred went on to say Trout "made certain decisions" about how to utilize his time outside of baseball and that the two-time American League Most Valuable Player isn't concerned with building his brand.There might be something to Manfred's assessment. Trout's profile on the field is almost the direct inverse of his profile off it. Ask fans to name a distinguishable characteristic of Trout's beyond his Hall of Fame-level production, and they'll likely struggle to come up with anything. He'sreally passionateabout weather.Having said that Jose Bautista Jersey , Trout isn't under any obligation to help build MLB's marketing campaigns."If Mike really wanted to, if he got a marketing team and everything, he would be the face of baseball," former MLB outfielder Torii Hunter said in an interview with theLos Angeles Times'BillShaikin. "He doesn't. He wants to be with his wife and keep it simple.It's his choice. It's not anybody else's choice."TheOrange County Register's Jeff Fletcher hit on the difficulty to truly build any sort of marketing campaign around one player:Jeff Fletcher JeffFletcherOCRBaseball isn鈥檛 like basketball or football because the nature of the sport limits the impact it鈥檚 stars can have on any given game. Turn on a random Angels game and he may do nothing (or get BB鈥檇). HOFers fail 7 of 10 times. Also, he can have a great game and the Angels can lose.Jeff Fletcher JeffFletcherOCRIf you want people to invest their time and money in the sport or a team, they鈥檝e got to like the sport, not just think Mike Trout is cool. There鈥檚 not enough Mike Trout in a 3-hour game to tune in or buy a ticket just because of him.Hunter posited Trout would become more popular if he had the opportunity to perform in the playoffs. The Angels have made one playoff appearance, which ended in the American League Division Series, since Trout arrived in 2011.That may prove true, but ultimately those who criticize MLB's marketing of Trout may be looking for solutions to a problem that doesn't really exist.Trout is content to be great at baseball without becoming a crossover star, while creating a focus around one player may not have a huge impact for MLB. Giving Trout a bigger spotlight might not elevate his teammates to a noticeable extent.The bigger debate may center on what MLB can do to better market the game as a whole.
