From April 22 to May 8, the ‘ hit .188 (9 for 48), filling those who predicted his imminent demise with glee. But since then, he’s batting .341 (14 for 41) with four home runs in 10 games.

In the biz, we call that “weathering the storm.” Or at least we should. Basically, when a guy overdue for a cold streak comes out of that cold streak with numbers nearly as impressive as when he went in, his breakthrough seems all the more credible.

I still think Davis’ batting average will graduallyt become their prime penalty taker.Gabriel Jesus followed recent examples from Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling in missing from 12 yards for City on Wednesday night as they recorded a narrow 1-0 win away to Sheffield United in the Premier League.And fall to about the .280 range over the next four-plus months, but he’ll have so many bursts of productivity during that time that you’ll hardly care. I recently moved him to 13th in , ahead of Freddie Freeman, making him more or less indispensable in all formats.

Rays’ pitching staff isn’t pitching like a typical Rays pitching staff

content_img

| | | |

On Monday night, the had a 7-0 lead after three innings. On Tuesday night, they had a 4-1 lead after six innings. They lost both games thanks to spectacular pitching collapses.

Entering Wednesday, the Rays had the fifth-worst ERA (4.44) and seventh-worst WHIP (1.33) in baseball this season. Last year they had the best ERA (3.19) and WHIP (1.17) in the game, both by a decent margin. The year before they had the eighth-best ERA (3.58) and second-best WHIP (1.22). Usually we talk about the Rays having one of the best pitching staffs in the game, not one the worst.

Perhaps the most amazing thing about the team’s pitching trouble is how nearly every single member of the staff is performing worse than they did a year ago. Here are the holdovers, the guys who pitched for the Rays in both 2012 and 2013:

2012-13 Rays Pitching StaffPitcher2012 ERA2012 WHIP2013 ERA2013 WHIPDavid Price2.561.106.251.48Alex Cobb4.031.252.791.19Jeremy Hellickson3.101.254.791.31Matt Moore3.811.351.951.05Fernando Rodney0.600.785.061.78Joel Peralta3.631.192.511.19Jake McGee1.950.8011.252.25Cesar Ramos2.100.975.631.63Kyle Farnsworth4.001.337.36United have made an opening offer of £35million to sign Dembele, according to reports in France.The former Celtic and Fulham striker has netted 23 times in Ligue 1 this season and has attracted attention from a number of top European teams.Ole Gunna2.32

Half the rotation and all but one reliever has pitched worse in 2013 than he did in 2012. In some cases — Rodney and McGee, specifically — a decline in performance was to be expected. Those two were outstanding last year and it would have been tough to repeat that success. Still, the decline has been drastic.

Cobb and Moore are pitching like aces so far, and I suspect Price will join them at some point. He’s simply way too good to pitch like he has over a full season. Unless he’s hurt, of courseire is optimistic about his relationship with Vimpard defended Mount at today’s Super Cup pre-match presser.He said, “I pick the best team to win the game, regardless of age. Mount deserves his chance on merit, I won’t fear to play young players. In terms of how we set up, I really liked some ofctor Lindelof.The centre-half duo successfully subdued Jamie Vardy in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Leicester City.”You have to realise partnerships are built on playing games and we have only had five games,. The entire staff has taken a step back, it seems. This looks more like a Devil Rays staff than a typical Rays staff.

Tampa entered Wednesday with a 14-18 record, good for fourth place in the AL East and 6 1/2 games back of the first place Red Sox. Their offense has been just fine so far (averaging 4.5 runs per game), but their pitching staff has been a huge disappointment. Strong pitching is the team’s trademark, and right now they are getting very little of that.

There is no denying that first baseman was hitting the ball well before his injury, as a .542 batting average and three home runs in just 24 at-bats more than speaks for itself. He is set to return from his oblique injury in Week 6 (May 6-12), and may represent a tantalizing starting option for some owners.

Unfortunately, his 24 at-bats came sprinkled throughout the course of 18 days, and there is little indication that more playing time is going to become available upon his return. As our Scott White notes in , Adams does not make much sense as a starting option right now. Given the makeup of the Cardinals’ roster, Adams is likely to get lost in the shuffle, no matter how big a stick he might swing.
