What does Tommy Pham bring to the Rays? Two words: Hard work

Video Details

Tampa Bay Rays GM Erik Neander, manager Kevin Cash and Tommy Pham himself discuss what the outfielder brings to his new ballclub.

- You know, this is a total player. And yes, he's 30. Yes, we're talking about young core of players. But it's three years of control in a guy we think has the potential to be an impact outfielder and a right-handed hitting outfielder at that, and that's something that, you know, you look through our system, and what we have isn't necessarily there and ready to go.

- Driven's probably the best word that-- driven and motivated are the two words that you've heard most when we've talked about former coaches, guys with the Cardinals, scouts, former teammates, all of those things. Joey Butler reached out to me and had really good things, and that's what he said. Hardest work he's ever been around, very, very motivated.

- Just play the game the right way and play hard. Show up to each and every day. Work hard, prepare each and every day, you know, to win a ballgame.
