Rays send rotation hopeful Burch Smith down to the minors
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Rays optioned Burch Smith down to the minors after his Grapefruit League outing on Friday against the Blue Jays, according to Tampa Tribune.

Smith, who was viewed as an outside candidate for a rotation spot, was hit hard for six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over 3 2/3 innings of work. The competition will be down to Nathan Karns, Matt Andriese, Mike Montgomery and Everett Teaford, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Rays down to five candidates for three open rotation spots
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With pitcher Enny Romero getting optioned to the minors, there remains five candidates for three spots in the Rays' rotation, per MLB.com. They are Matt AndrieseNathan Karns, Everett TeafordBurch Smith and Mike Montgomery.

Montgomery is the only left-handed pitcher in the group, but manager Kevin Cash said that doesn't mean he has an advantage over the other pitchers.

"I don't think that's a priority," Cash said. "I think we're going to try and find what will be the best matchup for us. You factor in a lot of things, and if you look at our first couple of games, it's not like there's a pressing need for a left-handed pitcher in there.

"We're still working on the rotation and how everything will unfold."

Rays shut down Alex Cobb (forearm) for approximately seven days
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rays general manager Matthew Silverman confirmed that Alex Cobb will be shut down for approximately a week because of tendinitis in his right forearm, and is no longer the starter for Tampa Bay on Opening Day, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Cobb left Tuesday's Grapefruit League game with the injury after tossing three perfect innings. He will be evaluated again after at least seven days of rest, and is not expected back in games until April at the earliest per the Tampa Tribune.

Silverman would not reveal his Opening Day plans, citing that he's more focused on putting a staff together, internally and externally. Manager Kevin Cash told reporters that there's a lot of moving pieces in the rotation, but he likes what he's seen out of Nathan Karns, Burch Smith and Matt Andriese this spring, per the Tribune.

Rays formulate contingency plan in case Smyly not ready by opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While the Rays are not overly concerned about Drew Smyly's left shoulder tendinitis, the team is formulating a contingency plan in the event he is not ready by the start of the season, per The Tampa Tribune.

Nathan Karns, Matt Andriese, Burch Smith and Alex Colome -- who are all competing for the final spot in the team's rotation -- could be stopgap options in case Smyly begins the year on the disabled list. 

Manager Kevin Cash added Everett Teaford  and Enny Romero, who appear to be two pitchers headed for Triple-A, could also be options, if they pitch well this spring.
