Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay Rays have been promising right from the start, except for their single loss against Toronto Blue Jays in their very first game.

Morton struggled to get past the Blue Jays in their opening game, but the Rays seem to have other plans. Tampa Bay has a decent batting unit that has helped them score a decent number this year. In their opening game against Atlanta, they smashed 14 runs to victory.
