  • WHNZ/1250: The former Rays flagship will now host afternoon weekday games and games with schedule conflicts. Tampa
  • WZHR/1400: Zephyrhills (station still listed on Rays official affiliates list site; however, it is unlikely that it will continue to air games, since WZHR has changed its callsign and format to WDCF, which is now a Spanish religious station)
