Major League Baseball Wednesday announced the revised 2022 regular season schedule for its clubs, and the Tampa Bay Rays now know officially how the six games they lost due to the owners’ lockout of the players will be rescheduled.
The Rays were initially scheduled to begin 2022 in Toronto with a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Those games will be made up by turning a four-game series in late June and early July into a five-game set, adding a doubleheader on July 2, and a three-game series in September into a five-gamer, making the game on September 13 a doubleheader, and adding a game on September 15, which was a mutual day off.
Tampa Bay also lost a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, which has now beed added to the end of the year. So the Rays and Red Sox will now play the final series of the season October 3-5, which turns the final road trip of the season for the club into a nine-game jaunt away from Tropicana Field.
