Position Breakdown
SS - 45
News
Beckham is out of the lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Angels.

Beckham hasn't had a day off since May 7, but after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Wednesday night, manager Kevin Cash likely decided it was time for a maintenance day. Daniel Robertson will move over to cover for him at shortstop, while Michael Martinez gets the start at second base.

Norris is out of the lineup Thursday against the Angels.

Norris has made four starts in a row behind the plate, but will take a seat in favor of Jesus Sucre for Thursday's series finale.

News
Colome recorded his 12th save with a clean ninth inning against the Angels on Wednesday.

He needed only 10 pitches (six strikes) to get the job done. Colome's sitting on a tidy 2.14 ERA and 0.86 WHIP, and he's 12-for-14 in save tries. The strikeout rate's dropped noticeably, but he's remained quite effective nonetheless. He's not among the game's top few closers, but Colome's one of the finest arms in the middle of the pack.

Injuries
Forearm - Expected to be out until at least Jun 2 (Updated - 5/25/17)
News
Diaz has been placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to Tuesday due to forearm fatigue, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Diaz has collected three holds in relief this season, but his last one came on May 1, and the right-hander has given up a run in two of his last three appearances. There had been no prior indication of any forearm troubles, so the ailment likely isn't serious, but the team needed a roster spot to call up fellow reliever Tommy Hunter (calf).

Back - Expected to be out until at least Jun 15 (Updated - 5/12/17)
News
Boxberger (back) is scheduled to throw batting practice sessions next Monday and Thursday at High-A Charlotte, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Boxberger's bullpens have gone well, allowing him to take the next step in his rehab. If the pair of batting practice sessions also go off without a hitch, the veteran reliever would presumably be slated for some rehab appearances as the final step before his 2017 debut with the big-league club.

News
Sucre is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins.

Derek Norris is set to take over behind the plate for Friday's series opener, which will bump Sucre back to the bench. Sucre has been seeing inconsistent playing time of late, collecting one hit in eight at-bats over the course of this week. On the season, Sucre is slashing .260/.296/.420 with two home runs and 13 RBI over 50 at-bats.

Matt Andriese, #35
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
5158.13.242152
 
News
Andriese (5-1) threw eight scoreless innings with six hits and two walks allowed while striking out five batters during Thursday's win over the Angels.

After his worst start of the season against the Yankees last time out, this was a spectacular bounce-back showing from Andriese. He's posted admirable fantasy numbers with a 3.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 to go along with his five wins. While the 27-year-old righty is clearly deserving of more virtual attention going forward, it is probably still wise to consider avoiding daunting matchups. His upcoming road start against Texas likely qualifies and will be a telling outing.

News
Longoria went 1-for-3 with two runs and a walk in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

The veteran slugger has rediscovered his stroke in May, with Thursday's effort putting his monthly slash line at .292/.343/.438. Longoria has nine multi-hit efforts this month and has already matched the nine extra-base hits he posted in April. He's also been much more consistent with his contact, slicing his strikeout tally in half (28 to 14) in just 16 fewer plate appearances.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 31 (Updated - 5/24/17)
News
Moreno was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to right shoulder bursitis, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It's unclear when this issue cropped up, but it comes as a bit of a surprise given his scoreless appearance just a few days ago. Moreno's timetable for return should be clarified as he progresses through his rehab program. To fill his spot in the bullpen, Ryan Garton was recalled from Triple-A.

News
Stanek notched his third hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Angels, striking out the side in a scoreless eighth inning and allowing one walk.

Stanek's strikeout victims notably included Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, and he's now put together three straight scoreless appearances. The 25-year-old right-hander experienced some trouble with his control in his previous outing in the opening game of the series, but managed to issue just one walk in a 24-pitch inning. Stanek has proven to be a valuable and increasingly trusted asset in an injury-hampered bullpen, compiling a 2.25 ERA in four innings across six appearances.

News
Kiermaier went 2-for-3 with a stolen base in two attempts in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

The Gold Glove outfielder has started to come on at the plate in May after hitting just .220 in April. Kiermaier has now hit .313 over his last 13 games, a stretch that's included two home runs, six RBI, seven runs, three stolen bases and five multi-hit efforts overall.

Position Breakdown

News
Dickerson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to the Angels.

The bomb was Dickerson's sixth during his current six-game hitting streak, as he continues to post elite May numbers. For the month, Dickerson has registered a hit in all but two games, and the heater has him up to 12 home runs, 23 RBI, 31 runs and a .345/.394/.644 slash line for the season. Counting on Dickerson cooling down is advised, but it would take a significant decline before it becomes a fantasy concern.

News
Hunter (calf) fired a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Angels, issuing a walk.

The veteran right-hander picked up right where he left off before hitting the disabled list, posting his fourth consecutive scoreless outing. Hunter lowered his ERA to 0.96 with the effort, as he's allowed just a single earned run in 9.1 innings across 11 appearances.

News
Odorizzi allowed just two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight batters over six innings during Monday's loss to the Angels. He didn't factor into the decision.

The eight punchouts were a season high for Odorizzi, and Monday's outing continued his strong run of starts to open the campaign. He sports a rock-solid 3.14 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 7.7 K/9, and the righty is closing in on establishing himself as a matchup-proof fantasy option. Odorizzi next lines up for a road start against the Twins this weekend.

Alex Cobb, #53

4463.23.821743
 
News
Cobb (4-4) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks across 7.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels. He struck out five.

Cobb gave up a pair of solo home runs on the first inning, but he cruised through six more frames before allowing another two runs with one out in the eighth. He struggled to throw strikes at times and tied a season high in free passes, one of which came around to score. While the late decline hurt Cobb's bottom line, this was the first time he had allowed more than three runs in over a month and ended a streak of three consecutive quality starts. He still owns a respectable 3.82 ERA and will look to get back on track Sunday against the Twins.

Ryan Garton, #52
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
012.111.5701
 
News
Garton was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Garton will give the Rays an extra healthy arm out of the bullpen after Diego Moreno (shoulder) was moved to the 10-day disabled list. The Rays are lack in capable setup arms in front of closer Alex Colome, but Garton isn't a strong candidate to see much usage in the seventh or eighth inning. Garton had submitted a 0.59 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 15.1 innings with Durham, but owns a 4.75 ERA and 34:12 K:BB in 41.2 career innings in the big leagues.

News
Alvardo fired a scoreless inning in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Angels, recording a strikeout.

Alvarado was summoned to the big-league club from Triple-A Durham and has been a solid left-handed option for manager Kevin Cash. The 22-year-old stumbled in his debut against the Marlins on May 3, but he's given up just an earned run in the 7.2 innings across his subsequent eight outings. His progressively dwindling 4.15 ERA is therefore simply a remnant of his rocky first outing, while his 0.58 WHIP is elite.

Heel - Expected to be out until at least Jun 5 (Updated - 5/23/17)
News
Duffy (heel) is scheduled to return to game action with High-A Charlotte next week, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The infielder has had plenty of starts and stops in his rehab, with the latest setback coming after he fouled a ball off his foot while taking batting practice. Duffy has managed to play three games with the Stone Crabs, hitting .250 over eight at-bats.

News
Miller (abdomen) is scheduled to take batting practice against Brad Boxberger (back) next week and also play in extended spring training games, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Miller has progressively been ramping up his activity this week, and has progressed to the point where he'll be ready to handle live pitching. The infielder remains without a firm timetable for return, but the extent of his expected participation next week should be a solid barometer of where he stands in his rehab.

Erasmo Ramirez, #30
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
3036.03.00625
 
News
Ramirez (3-0) limited the Angels to two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings in Wednesday's win, though he struck out just two.

The early returns from Ramirez retaking his spot in Tampa's rotation have been quite positive, as he's turned in a pair of solid outings. There's some good luck baked into his current 3.00 ERA and 0.89 WHIP, but even if he gets hit with some regression, Ramirez may be able to find a home on a wide variety of fantasy rosters in today's pitching-starved environment.

News
Souza went 2-for-3 with a pair of homers and three RBI against the Angels on Wednesday.

He'd been in a mighty slump -- just 8-for-67 with an insane total of 30 strikeouts over his last 20 games -- so this was huge for Souza and his fantasy owners, who so enjoyed having him in the lineup for much of April. Unfortunately, it looks like the progress he made early on in terms of making contact was a mirage, so Souza still can't be counted on to hit for decent average. That said, he's been a credit all season long to owners in leagues that use OBP rather than average.

Morrison went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to the Angels.

Morrison has had a breakout month in the power department this month, totaling seven homers and 18 RBI through 18 May games. He sports a .248/.337/.538 slash line for the season, and with that 24.9 strikeout percentage, it'll probably be difficult for Morrison to show marked improvement in batting average. Still, his 12 home runs, 32 RBI and 21 runs are high-end marks.
