Regular season summary

The Rays 2014 season started out harsh entering May. Tampa Bay went 11-16 since opening day and was struggling to move up in the American League East early on. In addition to their rough first month of baseball, May did not do any favors. In May the Rays posted a 12-17 record. To make things worse, 2014 was being played without Matt Moore in their rotation and numerous other injuries (along with Moore's) may have begun to take a toll on the Rays' recent tendencies to make playoff runs.

In June the Rays went 13-16 and followed that with an amazing July where they won 17 games and lost only 6. During the All Star Break, David Price was recognized as the only Tampa Bay representative. Price, Zobrist, and a few other Rays were in the midst of trade rumors. Price was dealt to the Detroit Tigers at the trade deadline in a three-way deal with Seattle. The Rays acquired Nick Franklin from Seattle and Drew Smyly from Detroit. Some analysts felt the Rays deserved more for David Price. After all, they gave the Tigers the 2012 American League Cy Young Award Winner to their rotation. (Detroit now had the previous three Cy Young Award winners in the American League in their rotation)
