    • Rays' Cory Rasmus: Slowed by groin injury
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus has been dealing with a pulled groin in recent days, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The injury has prevented Rasmus from appearing in Grapefruit League games since his spring debut back on Feb. 25. The 29-year-old is attending camp as a non-roster invitee, so if he doesn't get over the groin issue quickly, his chances of winning an Opening Day bullpen gig may rapidly diminish.

    • Rays' Cory Rasmus: Will sign with Rays
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus has agreed to a minor league contract with Tampa Bay, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports. Rasmus will join the same organization as his brother, Colby, after spending the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. The right-hander missed most of last season after undergoing groin surgery and struggled upon his return. He finished 2016 with a 5.84 ERA over 24.2 innings in relief and was designated for assignment in November. Rasmus likely provides organizational depth, but could be an option to fill the bullpen vacancy left by Kevin Jepsen.

    • Cory Rasmus: Opts to become free agent
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus declined an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake and is now a free agent. Rasmus' 2016 season was one to forget. Between multiple stints on the disabled list, he managed to throw just 24.2 innings over 19 games. During said games, he allowed 16 runs off 25 hits and 16 walks, giving him a 5.84 ERA and 1.66 WHIP for the year. Due to his struggles, Rasmus will likely take on a low-leverage bullpen role, regardless of where he ends up signing.

    • Angels' Cory Rasmus: Sent off 40-man roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday. The Angels activated five pitchers off the 60-day DL, leaving no room on the 40-man roster for the 29-year-old. Rasmus battled a groin injury during the season, but even when he was healthy, he was only able to muster a 5.84 ERA across 19 appearances, although his major league experience could help him ascend back into the major league bullpen.

    • Angels' Cory Rasmus: Activated off disabled list
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus (groin) was activated off the disabled list Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Persistent groin issues have kept Rasmus on the shelf for the majority of the season, but he'll make his return to the active roster Wednesday after a nearly three month absence. Considering that Tyler Skaggs was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday, Rasmus timely activation will add some depth to the Angels' bullpen. In just 21.2 innings this season, Rasmus has worked a 5.40 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP.
