Rays lose Faria, Ramos to injuries

Jake Faria left Tuesday due to a strained left oblique. Wilson Ramos followed him two batters later.

Jaleel Johnson Game Jersey You hit a bomb against Sale, it’s an amazing feeling, said Adames, who arrived at the ballpark about 40 minutes before first pitch. I can’t tell you how happy I am right now.

Travis has been hampered by injuries and has not played more than 101 games in a major league season as a result.

And sometimes you have to give credit to a great hitter. But here’s the most interesting thing about Bryant’s strikeout total: He isn’t as thrilled with the reduction as you might think.

Just because the strikeouts are down, it doesn’t always mean it’s necessarily a good thing, because when I struck out a lot, I felt like I was also still doing a lot of damage by hitting the ball in the air, Bryant said. Sometimes I go up there and just put the ball in play and ground out to short or something, and early in the count, you don’t want to do that. I like that the strikeouts are down, but there is still a part of me that wants to make sure that when I don’t strike out that I do something with the pitch I actually do hit.

In addition to a 1.010 OPS, Kris Bryant’s line-drive rate is at a career high and his strikeout percentage is a career low. Rich von Biberstein/Icon Sportswire

It might take a moment to let that sink in. In his Authentic Matt Schaub Jersey attempt to reduce his strikeout total, which was as high as 199 in his rookie season, Bryant acknowledged he’s not always swinging at some pitches he might be able to drive. In other words, contact is good, but how good is it if it’s weak contact? How much different is that from a strikeout?

Maybe making too much contact early in the count against pitches that I don’t necessarily want to make contact with isn’t so good, like pitches down in the zone or sliders down, Bryant said. It would be nice to swing through those sometimes and wait for a better pitch to get.
