After climbing within a half-game of first place in the American League East, the Rays had a triple setback Monday.
Not only did they lose to lowly Baltimore 6-1, but the Rays also had to deal with injuries to two key players.
All-Star catcher Mike Zunino left after three innings with a stiff left hip. Later, designated hitter Yandy Diaz left with neck stiffness. Neither injury is believed to be serious.
The Tampa Bay Times reported Zunino said, “I don’t want to be overly confident, but I’m feeling pretty good with how it’s bouncing back.”
Zunino has 19 home runs.
