Rays' Blake Snell: Throws 112 pitches in Friday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell fired 112 pitches and racked up nine strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a start for Triple-A Durham on Friday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The young southpaw also gave up four earned runs on five hits and four walks, flashing some of the location issues that led to his demotion in the first place. Snell is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA and 21:6 K:BB over 11.2 innings across two starts with the Bulls. He's likely due for several more starts in the minors at a minimum, as the Rays would like to see a consistent stretch of appearances where he displays improved control.

Rays' Blake Snell: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This is a surprising development on its surface, but the fact of the matter is that Snell has struggled through his eight starts with the Rays this season. He routinely fell behind in the count in his start Saturday, which allowed the Red Sox to sit on certain pitches and push six runs across. Snell will need to work on his command during his upcoming stint at Triple-A before rejoining the big league club. He notched an 0-4 record with a 4.71 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP prior to being optioned.

Rays' Blake Snell: Still in search of first victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (0-4) allowed six earned runs on six hits and three walks over 5.2 innings in a loss to Boston on Saturday. He struck out five.

Boston's bats made Snell work hard in this contest, forcing him to throw a season high in pitches (113) over only 5.2 innings. Efficiency has been a problem all season long for the 24-year-old southpaw, as he's only worked his way into the sixth inning twice. The potential to be a front-of-the-rotation starter still exists for Snell, but he's going to have to find a way to put away hitters before it is realized. He'll take another crack at earning his first win of the season next Friday at home against the Yankees.

Rays' Blake Snell: Struggles against light-hitting Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (0-3) allowed four runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out just two batters over five innings during Monday's loss to Kansas City.

The 24-year-old lefty posted a 2.92 ERA with an 8.0 K/9 over his previous five starts, so Monday's poor outing against the Royals was a little surprising. Snell has a swing-and-miss pitch arsenal but is also sporting a 5.01 FIP for the season, so he's still trying to figure it out at the highest level. While Monday's outings was a little discouraging because Kansas City isn't a daunting opponent, Snell's long-term outlook remains promising. A road date against Boston is up next, and fading Snell at Fenway Park isn't out of the question.

Rays' Blake Snell: Whiffs nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell struck out nine batters while allowing two runs on six hits and three walks over five innings in Wednesday's no-decision against Miami.

He left with a lead that the bullpen blew for him, but then again, that's what happens when you almost never go beyond five innings. It took Snell 109 pitches to get those 15 outs, so even though he's provided decent ERA for fantasy owners and this strikeout improvement was promising, he's still more upside than production. When he puts it all together, though -- and that could certainly happen this season -- Snell is going to develop into an excellent starter.
