News
Beckham (hamstring) is back in the lineup Saturday against Houston, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Hamstring tightness kept Beckham out of the lineup for the last three games, but he'll return to the lineup at first base Saturday. Beckham will bat fifth in the order against Astros' right-hander Dallas Keuchel.

News
Colome (1-4) blew only his second save of the season in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Astros, giving up back-to-back homers to Carlos Correa and Evan Gattis in the ninth inning.

The normally reliable closer imploded after Mikie Mahtook had given the Rays a 4-3 lead in the top half of the frame with his first homer of the season. Colome has now blown two saves since July 23 after successfully converting his first 21 chances on the season. The hiccup Friday broke a streak of 11 consecutive scoreless appearances for the 27-year-old, who still sports a stellar 2.15 ERA and 58:14 K:BB on the season over 46 innings.

News
Boxberger (2-0) pitched a scoreless 11th inning in Wednesday's 4-3 victory over the Red Sox, walking one and striking out the side.

The former closer continues to thrive in his new role, although due to the extra innings Wednesday he was actually the last pitcher to take the mound for the Rays. Boxberger impressively mowed down David Ortiz, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Sandy Leon in the 11th after closer Alex Colome had pitched the previous 1.2 innings, marking Boxberger's 10th consecutive scoreless effort. He now has nine whiffs in nine August frames and has allowed just a pair of earned runs in 11 appearances in his injury-shortened 2016 campaign.

News
Andriese allowed three runs on seven hits while walking one and striking out eight over six innings, but didn't factor in the decision in the Rays 4-3 extra-inning win over the Red Sox.

The right-hander had failed to make it out of the sixth inning in his previous four outings since rejoining the Rays' rotation after the trade deadline, posting a 6.84 ERA and 6.02 FIP over that span. Andriese appeared to return back into the pitcher we watched in May and early June when he started the season 6-0. He'll look to get another crack at the Red Sox on the road on Monday.

News
Longoria went 1-for-5 with a game-tying solo homer, his 30th, in Wednesday's 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox.

The slugging third baseman's 436-foot shot in the eighth was crucial to the eventual victory, as it knotted up the score at 3-3. Longoria's renaissance season now includes his first 30-homer tally since 2013, and fourth overall of his career. The 30-year-old also has three homers over his last five games and seven overall in August.

News
Smyly didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Astros but recorded eight strikeouts and gave up three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks over six innings.

The lefty continued his recent stretch of strong pitching, going at least six innings for the seventh straight outing while giving up two earned runs or less for the sixth time over that span. Smyly's eight strikeouts also served as his second-highest total in that category since July 1 and the effort brought nudged his ERA down for the seventh consecutive start. Although his chance at a fourth consecutive victory was lost when closer Alex Colome imploded in the ninth by giving up back-to-back homers, Smyly's season has undeniably taken a 360-degree turn for the better in the second half of the campaign.

Knee - Expected to be out until at least Sep 1 (Updated - 8/23/16)
News
Jennings (knee) will be released by the Rays on Saturday.

Jennings is currently on the DL with a knee injury, but he didn't see consistent time on the field when healthy. After playing in 65 games, Jennings failed to impress and hit a bleak .200/.281/.350. If a team opts to sign Jennings, it's likely that he'll simply provide additional outfield depth, whether it be at the Triple-A level or with a big club.

News
Dickerson went 3-for-4 with three doubles and two runs in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Astros.

After having gone 0-for-8 over his previous two games, the young slugger broke out with his third multi-hit effort since Aug. 19. Dickerson now has 10 extra-base hits (eight doubles, two homers) in each of the last two months and is slashing .232/.283/.450 with 26 doubles, three triples, 17 homers and 49 RBI over 380 at-bats in 2016.

News
Romero recorded his first major league save by recording just the final out in Thursday's 2-1 victory over Boston.

To earn his first MLB save, Romero emerged from the bullpen with a one-run lead and one job -- set down Boston slugger David Ortiz for the final out. The left-hander did just that by freezing Big Papi on a called third strike to end the game. Despite the accomplishment, it's highly unlikely that the 25-year-old will be called on to make any saves under normal circumstances moving forward.

News
Odorizzi (9-5) pitched seven innings, allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out four in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Odorizzi got the better end of a pitcher's duel with Red Sox starter Drew Pomeranz to pick up his sixth straight victorious decision. Thursday marked the right-hander's seventh quality start in his last eight outings, a stretch in which he's posted a miniscule 1.40 ERA with 34 strikeouts over 45 innings. Odorizzi remains undefeated since the All-Star break and has pushed his ERA for the season down to 3.53, its best mark since June 8. The 26-year-old will look to continue his hot streak when he takes on the Red Sox once again, this time on the road, in his next start Tuesday.

Elbow - Expected to be out until at least Sep 2 (Updated - 8/23/16)
News
Cobb (elbow) will make a final rehab start for Triple-A Durham on Saturday before joining the Rays next week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

His long road back from May 2015 Tommy John surgery almost complete, Cobb will take the mound one more time for the Bulls in a final effort to work out kinks and stretch out his arm. The 28-year-old has had an up-and-down rehab process, with an extended break from game action at one point to remedy some mechanics and fatigue-related issues. Cobb will try to rebound from his last start on Aug. 22 against Norfolk, an outing where he gave up five earned runs on nine hits and two walks over four frames. He's not scheduled for a soft landing when he arrives in Tampa either, as the right-hander is slated to face the Blue Jays on Sept. 2 or 3.

Blake Snell, #4

News
Snell left Saturday's game in the fourth inning with a bruised lower left leg.

Snell probably wasn't long for Saturday's game anyway, as he'd given up four earned runs on nine hits in three-plus innings (64 pitches). He was hit in the leg by a sharp groundball off the bat of Houston's Marwin Gonzalez. The diagnosis of a bruise would seem to bode well for Snell's chances of avoiding a lengthy absence but his status for his next start is uncertain.

News
Duffy went 2-for-4 with a double in Thursday's 2-1 victory over the Red Sox, bringing his line to date in a Rays uniform to .357/.386/.381.

The recently acquired shortstop, who'd endured a sluggish campaign before his trade deadline move from the Giants, has found new life at the plate in Tampa. Duffy has now raised his average 18 points since his Aug. 12 debut in a Rays uniform, going 15-for-42 over that span. While there hasn't been much impactful contact-- as evidenced by the fact that his Thursday two-bagger was the first extra-base hit of his Rays tenure-- Duffy is certainly making meaningful contributions in an offense that has often been starved for production this season.

News
Ramirez has put together scoreless outings in six of his eight August relief appearances, with the most recent being a 1.1-inning stint against the Red Sox on Monday in which he walked two but also recorded a pair of strikeouts.

The 26-year-old righty has had a couple of hiccups during the month against the Twins and Yankees, respectively, but has otherwise been sharp in relief outings of varying length. Ramirez worked two or more frames in his first four appearances of the month, surrendering all five of the earned runs on his ledger in August over that span. The former starter continues to provide valued versatility out of the bullpen by eating some innings when necessary and otherwise serving as a a one-inning bridge in the latter portions of games. Ramirez sports a 7-9 record, 3.87 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 74.1 innings this season.

Franklin (concussion) has been activated from the 7-Day DL and has rejoined the Rays in Houston after a strong performance in a Friday night rehab start for High-A Charlotte, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 25-year-old utility man went 3-for-4 for the Stone Crabs in his lone rehab start on Friday night, logging time at both second base and left field. It remains to be seen if he'll be immediately reinserted into the starting lineup, but Franklin has been reinstated from the DL after his brief stint on the sidelines.

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 over the 3.1 innings over that span.

Wilson went 3-for-4 with a double and run in Wednesday's 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox.

Mahtook went 2-for-3 with a double and solo homer in Friday's 5-4 loss for the Astros.

The outfielder picked a perfect time to launch his first homer of the season, smacking a solo shot to left in the ninth to snap a 3-3 tie. Mahtook was all set to be the hero as a result of the round-tripper, but normally reliable closer Alex Colome was unable to hold the lead in the bottom half of the frame. After an 0-for-34 slump, Mahtook now is 3-for-6 with a pair of doubles and Friday's homer over the last two games.
