The Rays’ 2015 season saw them finish fourth in the American League East with a record of 80-82 (.494), of which their home record stood at 42-42 and their on the road form 38-40.
In Chris Archer the Rays have one of the best pitchers in baseball, and at 27-years of age, Archer still has time to improve, which is bad news for anyone who faces his slider, which is already ranked up there with the best of the best.
Behind Archer is another talented 27-year old in Matt Moore, a player who has spent much of the past two seasons watching from the sidelines due to injuries, so you can bet that Moore will be looking to make up for lost time when the 2016 season gets underway.
Throw into the mix centerfielder Kevin Kiermairer, one of the best defensive players in baseball in 2015, and the fact the Rays have other up and coming pitchers, allowing them to attack teams with a right-handed/left-handed combination attack, and we may just see the Rays have a winning season in 2016.

If the Tampa Bay Rays can keep their young rotation fit and healthy, something that is easier said than done, the will cause their rivals problems. However, their offensive game needs some serious work if they are to even consider reaching the playoffs.
The Rays finished 14 from 15 American league teams in terms of runs scored in 2015, with only the Chicago White Sox fairing worse than them.
With such little batting power, the Ray have to be on top of their defensive game otherwise it could be a long, painful season for them and their fans.
