Finishing the first half at 49-47 is remarkable considering all the Rays have overcome in the way of offseason turnover, in-season trades and injuries. But the vitality of youth has appeared to inject the team with life.

Blake Snell doesn't think OBJ's jokes are funny
The ball wasn't flying out of Nationals Park quite as frequently as it did during Bryce Harper's heroic hometown homer binge a night earlier, but it was flying all the same in a dinger-driven, record-breaking 89th All-Star Game presented by Mastercard on Tuesday night.
Blake Snell's goals at the All-Star Game presented by Mastercard were simple: soak in the moment, learn what you can and show what you've got. After all, almost missing out on the honor as a replacement selection -- a perceived slight that offended fellow Rays All-Star Wilson Ramos -- made Snell not want to take the festivities for granted.

Wilson Ramos and Blake Snell weren't on the radar when last year's Midsummer Classic rolled around.
Any hopes that the Rays had of taking some momentum into the All-Star break vanished in extra innings on Sunday. Brian Dozier crushed a walk-off grand slam off Tampa Bay reliever Matt Andriese in the bottom of the 10th to give the Twins an 11-7 win over the Rays at Target Field and end the first half of the season in dramatic fashion.
The benches cleared not once, but twice, between the Twins and Rays in the seventh inning on Sunday at Target Field.

To bolster their depleted bullpen, the Rays looked outside their organization to acquire some pitching depth. Tampa Bay announced on Saturday that it had acquired left-hander Hoby Milner from the Phillies for cash considerations.
The Rays tied a franchise record with 19 runs on Saturday afternoon as the offense delivered a record-setting performance in the late innings to get their road trip back on track. The Rays racked up six runs off Twins All-Star ace Jose Berrios. The Twins took a four-run lead in the sixth, only to see it fall apart as the Rays punished the Minnesota bullpen.
Wilson Ramos will not be able to play in Tuesday's All-Star Game, he said following Saturday's game vs. the Twins. The Tampa Bay catcher was removed from Tampa Bay's 19-6 win with tightness in his left hamstring. He said the injury occured when he was running out a ground ball to third in the sixth inning.
Considering how well Willie Calhoun is swinging the bat, it might not be long until he gets another crack at the Major Leagues.

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Thursday.
The Rays earned a sweep of the Tigers with Wednesday afternoon's 4-2 win at Tropicana Field. A steady 'bullpen day' pitching effort was backed by homers from C.J. Cron and Kevin Kiermaier. Jordan Zimmermann worked out of numerous jams to keep Detroit in striking distance, but the only offense came on James McCann's two-run home run in the fourth inning.
The Rays placed left-hander Jose Alvarado on family medical emergency leave and recalled Andrew Kittredge from Triple-A Durham prior to their 12:10 p.m. ET game against the Tigers on Wednesday at Tropicana Field.
Wilson Ramos went deep for the second consecutive night, poking a three-run homer to cap a five-run third against Detroit starter Matthew Boyd, and the Rays' bullpen-game strategy held the Tigers scoreless into the ninth.

Does Snell look like Stinky Peterson?
Kevin Kiermaier stroked a one-out triple in the 10th off Blaine Hardy, and Daniel Robertson later singled through the drawn-in Tigers infield to drive home Kiermaier for the Rays' 10th-inning walk-off win on Monday night at Tropicana Field. Tampa Bay cranked out 17 hits in the game. Niko Goodrum doubled twice and drove in three for Detroit.
Everything went right for the Rays' offense against Detroit starter Francisco Liriano during a five-run first inning Monday night at Tropicana Field.
Most in the Rays' clubhouse feel as though Blake Snell got the short end of the stick by not getting named to the American League All-Star team.
Wilson Ramos won the fan vote to be named as the American League's starting catcher in the 2018 All-Star Game presented by Mastercard. He was the only Ray to be named to the AL team Sunday, although there's a good chance pitcher Blake Snell could be added once other pitchers become unavailable to pitch in the July 17 game.
The Rays activated right-hander Chris Archer from the disabled list and optioned righty Andrew Kittredge on Monday afternoon.
