November 11th in Rays History:

Happy birthdays to two former Rays, Damion Easley (1967) and Roberto Hernandez (1964)

1997 – The Rays make their first ever trade as they acquire Mike Kelly from the Cincinnati Reds for a player to be named. The player turned out to be Dmitri Young who went on to have a solid career for the next decade and half. Kelly meanwhile would be out of the majors after 1999.

2013 – Wil Myers is announced as the winner of the American League Rookie of the Year award following a season in which he slashed .293/.354/.478 with 13 HR over 88 games. Chris Archer would finish third in the voting.

Trivia:

By the Numbers.

Last week, Ian posed the question which pitcher in team history had the most outings in which he delivered five innings or less and the answer was Scott Kazmir with no one really close to touching his number of outings.

However, my question is, which Rays pitcher had the most five inning or less outings in a single-season?
