Rays' Xavier Cedeno: Participating fully at spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (neck) threw from a mound at Rays spring training Tuesday Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

In addition to throwing from the mound, Cedeno participated in all of the group workouts Tuesday. Over the course of spring training, Cedeno will work to improve against right-handed hitters. While he dominated lefties in 2016, limiting them to a .197 batting average, he struggled against righties, as they put together a .259/.310/.395 line when Cedeno was on the mound.

Rays' Xavier Cedeno: May participate in World Baseball Classic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (neck) is wanted on the Puerto Rican team at the World Baseball Classic, but the Rays will have final say, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The southpaw finished the 2016 season plagued by a sore neck, so the Rays will have say in the matter of whether or not he can be a part of Puerto Rico manager Edwin Rodriguez's bullpen at the WBC. Cedeno is reportedly interested in participating as well, but as a valued left-handed arm in the bullpen, caution figures to be exercised, with his health for the opening of the 2017 campaign likely to take precedence.

Rays' Xavier Cedeno: Near certainty to return to Rays in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cedeno (neck), along with closer Alex Colome and Brad Boxberger, is one of three relievers virtually assured of a return to the Rays in 2017, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The southpaw holds the distinction of being the top lefty arm out of the bullpen for the Rays, affording him some extra value. Cedeno closed out the season on a strong note, rattling off eight consecutive scoreless appearances that encompassed six innings overall. He definitely had his up-and-down moments in 2016, however, as he blew all five save opportunities he saw and finished the season with a 3.70 ERA that was his highest of the three campaigns in which he's fired at least 40 innings. On the plus side, Cedeno was credited with 19 holds and recorded 43 whiffs over 41.1 innings. As a strong strikeout pitcher who's displayed serviceable control over his two Rays seasons, he remains a valued left-handed option heading into next spring.

Rays' Xavier Cedeno: Dealing with sore neck
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno is dealing with soreness in his neck, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cedeno has not pitched at all this month due to his sore neck, and it appears he will remain unavailable for the time being, as he will be examined when the Rays return home from their road trip, which concludes Sunday.

Rays' Xavier Cedeno: Posts strong outing in Tuesday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cedeno fired 1.1 innings of scoreless ball in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox, striking out two.

The veteran reliever has followed up a successful July with a largely effective August, save for a couple of hiccups where he's yielded a pair of earned runs against both the Royals and Blue Jays. Cedeno now has a streak of five scoreless appearances, giving up just three hits and recording six strikeouts in the 3.1 innings over that span.
