Rays' Colby Rasmus: Could be held out early in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmus (groin) could be held out of early spring training games according to manager Kevin Cash, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

After a pair of October surgeries that addressed core muscle and hip issues, Rasmus will be handled with care early spring training. The veteran slugger slashed just .206/.286/.355 with the Astros in 2016, but did smack 10 doubles and 15 homers, while also driving in 54 runs. He's projected to slot in as both a left fielder and designated hitter in the coming season for the Rays.

Rays' Colby Rasmus: Expects to be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rays Vice President of Baseball Operations Chaim Bloom stated that Rasmus (groin) "will be ready for Opening Day or soon after," Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran outfielder underwent a pair of surgeries in October to address a core muscle injury and a hip issue, but the Rays seem to be optimistic that he can return to form in time for much of the 2017 campaign. Once he's fully recovered, Rasmus seems to be in line to play primarily in left field while also spending a good portion of time as Tampa Bay's designated hitter, although expectations for him should be tempered until he can prove he's back to his previous form at the plate.

Rays' Colby Rasmus: Signs with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rasmus (groin) agreed to a deal with the Rays on Monday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Rasmus is coming off of an injury-riddled season with the Astros in which he hit just .206/.286/.355. The Rays are betting on the veteran outfielder to hopefully bounce back to his 2015 self, in which he posted an OPS of .789. Rasmus - who struggles to hit left-handed pitching - will likely slot in on the strong side of a platoon in left or right field and may also see some time at DH. He underwent groin surgery this offseason but should be good to go for spring training.

Colby Rasmus: Does not receive qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rasmus (groin) was not tendered a qualifying offer by Monday's deadline, making him a free agent, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After a hot start, Rasmus stumbled through an injury-plagued season to post some of the worst numbers of his career, leaving the Astros no choice but to non-tender him. The 30-year-old does tout the ability to play all three outfield positions as well as some nice left-handed pop, so he could get a decent contract with a team willing to take a risk on his health status heading into the 2017 campaign.

Astros' Colby Rasmus: Undergoes surgery, should be ready by spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmus (groin) had a pair of surgeries on October 18 to address a hip issue and a core muscle injury, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Rasmus was plagued by multiple injuries in 2016, but it seems like he's spending the early portion of his offseason doing maintenance on various parts of his body. The hip operation was to shave off a bone spur and repair the labrum in his left hip, while the other was to repair a core muscle. Although it sounds like a lot, the free-agent outfielder is expected to be running at 100 percent by January and back to full strength prior to spring training. This could affect his ability to sign with teams over the winter, but it seems like there shouldn't be a problem for fantasy purposes.
