The mood in the Tampa Bay Rays they look a bit down after the team is falling in the fight for the American League wild card spotshaving lost 6 of their last 10 and giving ground to their rival Toronto Blue Jays. Now, it seems that frustration turned to anger and two Manta Ray stars got into a pretty serious physical altercation.
According to information from Zach Blonber of iHeart Radio, Cubans Yandy Díaz and Randy Arozarena would have hit each other in the parking lot of Tropicana Field after the 5-0 loss to the Houston Astros, where a verbal argument apparently got out of control, leading both players to come to blows.
According to Blobner, his other teammates became aware of the altercation and had to intervene to break up the fight. Manager Kevin Cash reportedly penalized both players, which would explain why neither came out of Tuesday’s game in the second of the series against Houston.
When Cash was asked about the absence of both players from Tuesday’s game, according to Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times, the manager would say only that he had given them the day off, with the team still not confirming the alleged altercation. .
