Grant Balfour did not record a out while giving up three runs in the top of the eleventh on one hit and three walks falling to 1-5 on the season for the Ray's.
Balfour continues to have a tough time on the mound since returning to the Rays this past offseason and is now sitting on a 5.48 ERA and 1.64 WHIP through 47.2 innings of relief. He has not been in the closer role for quite some time now and considering now well Jake McGee has adapted to the ninth inning there is little chance he ever gains back the role ever again while with the Rays.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jose Reyes pleaded not guilty to his domestic abuse charge.
Reyes was not present but his attorney entered the plea on his behalf. The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14, when a pretrial hearing is scheduled. Reyes was arrested after an incident with his wife left her to be treated at the hospital for leg injuries and scratches on her neck. This is not going to be a good thing for Reyes or the Rockies or MLB for that matter. The league is likely going to let it play out in court before deciding if disciplinary actions should be taken.
