KEY GAME INFORMATION
OAKLAND: 2017: 75-87, fifth place.
MANAGER: Bob Melvin (eighth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Stephen Piscotty, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Dustin Fowler, RHP Trevor Cahill, RHP Emilio Pagan, RHP Yusmeiro Petit, LHP Ryan Buchter.
SUBTRACTIONS: INF Ryon Healy, RHP Jesse Hahn, OF Jaycob Brugman.
OUTLOOK: The A's have followed up three straight playoff appearances with last-place finishes the past three seasons. There are signs of a potential turnaround but rebuilding will still take some time, especially in a division with the defending World Series champions and other possible contenders. The bullpen should be improved with the additions of Pagan, Petit and Buchter. The strength of the team is power. Davis leads the way with 85 homers the past two seasons, ranking second in the majors during that span to Giancarlo Stanton's 86. Olson made a big splash with 24 homers in 189 at-bats, a rate topped over a whole season only twice ' when Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds each set the single-season home run record. The A's added depth to the lineup this spring by signing Lucroy. One of the most intriguing players will be Fowler, who played one inning in the majors for the Yankees before blowing out his knee and then getting traded to Oakland for pitcher Sonny Gray. Fowler adds needed athleticism and defense in the outfield as the A's look to build a foundation for the future.
TAMPA BAY: 017: 80-82, third place.
MANAGER: Kevin Cash (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Denard Span, 1B C.J. Cron, RHP Nathan Eovaldi, OF Jake Bauers.
SUBTRACTIONS: 3B Evan Longoria, RHP Alex Cobb, RHP Jake Odorizzi, OF-DH Corey Dickerson, OF Steven Souza Jr., 1B Logan Morrison, 1B-DH Lucas Duda, RHP Brad Boxberger, RHP Steve Cishek, RHP Tommy Hunter, OF Peter Bourjos, INF Trever Plouffe, RHP Chase Whitley.
OUTLOOK: The Rays sport a new look after a winter of trimming payroll. In addition to the departures of Cobb and Odorizzi, the heart of a batting order that hit a club-record 228 homers ' Longoria, Dickerson, Souza and Morrison ' is gone, too. Archer, a two-time All-Star, is set to make his franchise-record fourth opening day start, and Colome is back at closer, too. The question that remains unanswered is, for how long? Cash and general manager Erik Neander aren't making any bold predictions but they insist that despite all the changes, the Rays have a chance to be a lot more competitive than it appears on paper.
PREVIEW
Rays try to close gap versus A's
 

The chances are slim. OK, very slim.

But the Tampa Bay Rays host Oakland in a weekend series beginning Friday with their last chance at making a run at the Athletics for an American League wild-card spot.

This is a three-game series between the two hottest teams in the league, but an Oakland loss in Baltimore on Thursday night left the idle Rays eight games behind the A's, who trail the idle New York Yankees for the top wild-card position by 1 1/2 games. The A's also fell 3 1/2 games behind the Houston Astros atop the AL West.

Obviously, the only chance Tampa Bay might have hinges on a sweep this weekend and while the Rays have won 18 of their last 22 games overall and 13 of their last 14 at home, the chance of Oakland losing all three games seems remote at best.

Even with Thursday night's loss, which ended a six-game winning streak, the A's are 55-22 in their last 77 games. Before the loss, they were 32 games over .500 for the first time since Sept. 23, 2003.

They have a magic number to clinch the wild-card spot of nine, but face a hot Tampa team that has built a strong belief in itself down the stretch.

"You hope that we're learning a lot about ourselves right now," Rays manager Kevin Cash said Wednesday. "Bring some excitement to the rest of this year and going into the offseason. Getting to watch this from a really good seat, it's pretty exciting. I hope it's exciting for our fans. Because these guys, they come every day, they bring a lot of effort, they're fun to watch and they're very talented."

Veteran Edwin Jackson, who is 5-3 with a 3.26 ERA this season since joining the A's (his 13th team), works the first game of the series on Friday, while Cash goes with "opener" Diego Castillo (3-2, 3.45 ERA), with 14-game winner rookie Ryan Yarbrough slated to do the bulk of the work.

Jackson is 1-1 in his last five starts and is coming off a rough outings against the Rangers in Oakland, giving up four runs on five hits, including two home runs, in three innings of a no-decision. The A's won the game 8-6.

Yarbrough is 14-5 with a 3.78 ERA and will take over for Castillo, who gave up a run in two innings as the "opener" Monday night. Yarbrough had a 5 2/3-inning relief appearance with nine strikeouts while allowing three runs May 31 against the A's as the Rays won three of four at Oakland, which is 20-9 versus the AL East.

Both teams come in with former Cardinals in the midst of hitting streaks -- Tampa Bay's Tommy Pham with a 16-game streak and Oakland's Stephen Piscotty a 14-game streak after hitting a home run in Baltimore Thursday night.

The A's, who has lost ace Sean Manaea for the season with shoulder surgery, announced Trevor Cahill, who was scheduled to start Saturday's game, had gone home for an MRI on a strained rhomboid muscle in his back. The hope is he'll be able to start twice on Oakland's final homestand of the season.

"Hopefully it's just a muscular thing," Oakland manager Bob Melvin said before Thursday's game. "Felt it last time out, so we're going to send him back. He's had some trouble in certain areas before, so we want to make sure we cover our bases. Hopefully we know a little bit more tomorrow about what the results are, and hopefully it's only one turn around."

Tampa's Matt Duffy missed the last three games with back stiffness but was available to pinch hit Wednesday and hopes to play Friday night.
