Tampa Bay Times - - Raysreport -

• RHP Chris Archer on Thurs­day made his 170th career start, ty­ing LHP David Price for sec­ond most in fran­chise his­tory be­hind RHP James Shields’ 217.

• Go­ing into Thurs­day’s game, the Rays had not an­nounced a Satur­day starter. LHP Ryan Yar­brough is lined up, but with the An­gels right-hand heavy lineup, the Rays could use a righty re­liever. • Robert­son, a SoCal na­tive, has about 200 friends and rel­a­tives com­ing Satur­day, in part as a fundraiser or­ga­nized by his mom, Julie, for his foun­da­tion, and 50-100 the other days.

• This is the Rays’ first road trip of 11 or more games since 2016 and the first through three time zones since 2008. It’s also the third of four three-city road trips to start the sea­son, which is a first in their 21-year his­tory.

• At 22 years and 352 days, INF Chris­tian Ar­royo is the youngest position player to de­but for the Rays since Wil My­ers (22 years, 190 days) in 2013.
