Snell ready for Opening Day 2019, bringing wins to Tampa Bay

Sports

Up until this point of spring training, Rays starting pitcher, Blake Snell, has pitched just about 4 innings in 3 starts.

Is this concerning at all?

According to the reigning 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner…the short answer is no.

In 2018, Snell led all of Major League Baseball with 21 wins and led the American League with a 1.89 ERA. Do you think he’s slowing down or done proving himself yet? Far from it. 

Forget the slight pay raise and forget that the 26 year old just won a Cy Young, or as Snell calls it “outside noise.”  To be quite honest, Snell said he became a lot better at quieting this “noise” after the 2017 season. 

What does that mean?

For him, once he starts to warmup in the bullpen or is ready to start a game. His focus is on baseball and baseball only.

Snell is proud of his 2018 season, sure! But it’s 2019 and he is now focused on bringing wins to Tampa Bay and wants more than anything to make the post-season.

Even mentioning “World Series,” made Snell light up.

He is MORE than ready for his first carreer OPening Day start in a Rays uniform on March 28th.

Because for Blake Snell, a Cy Young Award is just the beginning…
