Too soon to discount Miller?

In 2014, many wrote Brad Miller off after he opened the season batting .151 through late May. But he clicked in from that point on, hitting .267 the rest of the way, a fact obscured by his poor start. It's why Ron Shandler is not too worried about Miller's .130 start. Which surging, slumping players will continue? (Insider)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Good to see Chris Archer turn in a dominant outing, striking out 10 in 6.2 scoreless innings against the Orioles. The big key: He threw first-pitch strikes to 17 of the 25 batters he faced, getting into more pitcher's counts. He now has 39 K's in 26.1 innings. He's fine; that 5.47 ERA will slowly get to where it should be.

Tampa Bay climbs into top 20

No. 23 last week, the Rays are showing off their talented pitching. Unfortunately, hitting is still a problem. For a decade, this team has been built on pitching and defense. It's time the offense helps out. Week 3 Power Rankings
