• Matt Joyce's pinch-hit double Thursday night off Boone Logan gave Rays pinch-hitters a Major League-best .310 batting average (18-for-58) this season. Tampa Bay pinch-hitters are 6-for-8 with a walk in their last nine plate appearances.

• Entering Friday night's game, the Rays had made only 10 errors in their last 28 games and had not had a multi-error game during that span. The streak of 28 straight games without a multi-error game is the longest current stretch in the Major Leagues.

• In addition to signing top pick Nick Ciuffo on Friday, the Rays also brought into the fold fourth-round pick Kean Wong, a second baseman from Hawaii's Waiakea High School. His older brother, Kolten, was drafted in the first round by the Cardinals in 2011. The Rays also inked 33rd-round pick Hector Montes (third baseman, Southwestern College) and 40th-round pick Ryan Hensley (second base, Azusa Pacific University). The Rays have now signed 28 of their 41 Draft picks.

• The May 2 postponed game against the Royals has been rescheduled for Aug. 26 at 2:10 p.m. ET.
