ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani can do it all on a baseball field, yet the Japanese two-way sensation had never hit a grand slam as a professional.
He changed that Monday night.
Ohtani's first slam came on a two-homer night, Mike Trout also homered and the surging Los Angeles Angels beat the Tampa Bay Rays 11-3.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays signed reliever Brooks Raley to a $10 million, two-year contract Tuesday with a club option for 2024.
The defending AL East champions also traded All-Star infielder Joey Wendle to the Miami Marlins for minor league outfielder Kameron Misner, and agreed with first baseman Ji-Man Choi on a $3.2 million, one-year deal that avoids arbitration.
