Rays Key Players To Watch:

  • Right fielder Steven Souza Jr. has hit .306, with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs in his last 10 games. He even has 4 stolen bases on top of his .906 OPS, doing everything that he can to make an impact for the Rays. Look for Souza to make a big splash against the Red Sox if they are not careful around him.
  • David DeJesus, in a shorter amount of time than Souza, has also put his mark on the 2015 campaign. He has hit 10 times for a home run and 8 RBIs. The left fielder continues to get more playing time, two games in each of the last 4 series, and should likely get the same opportunity against Boston.
