Rays' Richie Shaffer: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaffer was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Shaffer will return for his second stint with the big club this month, replacing Nick Franklin, who was placed on the 7-day concussion DL. The 25-year-old Schaffer has taken a major step back with Durham this season, with his batting line falling to .223/.325/.355 from .270/.355/.582 in 2015. He will likely see only sporadic opportunities.

Rays' Richie Shaffer: Recalled Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaffer was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Markc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Although Shaffer has struggled in Triple-A this season (.227 batting average), he will be recalled in place of Taylor Motter. The 25-year-old was ineffective in his first MLB stint in 2015, hitting .189 in 31 games, but his versatility may have been the factor that led to the Rays bringing him back up. Shaffer has played first base, third base, left field, and right field, so he could serve as a utility man until the Rays get healthier.

Rays' Richie Shaffer: Back in Triple-A lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaffer (neck) is back in the lineup for Triple-A Durham on Thursday, play-by-play announcer Patrick Kinas reports.

Shaffer suffered a neck strain during Wednesday's game, but the injury was apparently not as serious as initially anticipated. The Rays have seen multiple outfielders hit the disabled list with injuries of late, but Shaffer is struggling with just a .239 average in the minors this year, so it would appear he's not currently a candidate for a promotion.

Rays' Richie Shaffer: Day-to-day with neck strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaffer is day-to-day with a neck strain, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Shaffer strained his neck when diving for a ball on Wednesday. The Rays' prospect has slashed .239/.330/.352 over 247 at-bats for Triple-A Durham. He was called up earlier in the season, but isn't expected to be called up again anytime soon despite the Rays' outfield needs due to his lackluster performance. There will likely be more updates on his status soon.

Rays' Richie Shaffer: Disappointing overall in Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shaffer is not an option for the Rays' depleted outfield at the moment due to his own mediocre performance at the Triple-A level, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

With Steven Souza (hip) and Brandon Guyer (hamstring) still sidelined, and Mikie Mahtook (hand) joining them on the DL, Shaffer would normally be a natural candidate for a call-up. However, the 25-year-old hasn't done much to inspire confidence with Triple-A Durham this season, slashing just .242/.333/.357 with five homers and 26 RBI over 244 at-bats. He struggled considerably during his 74-at-bat cup of coffee with the big league club in 2015 as well, generating a .189/.307/.392 line with four homers and six RBI.
