TORONTO - The Tampa Bay Rays were so far back in the standings at one point this season, it seemed they were in danger of being lapped.

But like a late-charging race horse, here come the Rays.

The Rays still have a good ways to go, mind you, as heading into Friday’s game against the Blue Jays they sit in fourth place in the AL East , 10 games under .500 with a 42-52 record.

They are nine games back of Baltimore with three games in front of them and at this point don’t know whether or not they will be sellers — David Price anyone? — at the July 31 trade deadline.

Suddenly, though, the Rays have turned it on, turned in around and are dangerous.
