Erasmo's Time To Shine - With Jake Odorizzi on the DL with a left hamstring strain, Erasmo Ramirez will make the spot start today. Out of the 64 games he pitched for the Rays last year, Erasmo started only one, a game against the White Sox on April 16th, 2016. He went 5 2/3 innings giving up only three hits and striking out four. 


Souza Stepping Up - Steven Souza Jr. has reached base multiple times in 11 games this season, tied with Kansas City CF Lorenzo Cain for most in the American League. 


Did You Know? - The Rays lead the American League in runs scored in the 1st inning with 18.
