Tampa Bay Rays

Rays Triple Play: Notes from camp


Number of the day

10 under: Joe Maddon’s team score during Thursday’s charity golf outing to benefit the Rays Baseball Foundation. David Price’s team won at 16 under. “There are guys who go out there with erasers on their pencils, man,” Maddon said. “They get these 17 unders, 18 unders. Really inappropriate. We’re going to have to put GoPro cameras on some of these cards.”

Quote of the day

“No. I don’t like jumping off diving boards.”

— Maddon, when asked if he would ever jump out of a plane like the U.S Special Operations Command Parachute Team that delivered the game ball and the American flag during pregame ceremonies.

Call to arms

LHP David Price makes his spring debut today against the Pirates in Bradenton. He will be followed by RHP Mark Lowe, LHP Jake McGee, RHP Brad Boxberger, RHP Matt Andriese, LHP Mike Montgomery, LHP Enny Romero, LHP Jeff Beliveau and RHP Alex Colome.
