Injuries
Hip - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/26/17)
News
Beckham was scratched from the lineup due to an irritated hip flexor prior to Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckham is off to a nice start in spring training, but will sit out of Sunday's contest with his hip irritation. It's unclear how significant the injury is, so he will be listed as day-to-day for the time being.

News
Whitley, who gave up a hit and walk while recording two strikeouts over 1.1 scoreless innings in Friday's loss to the Pirates, could be deployed as a long reliever if the Rays deal Erasmo Ramirez, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old righty would provide the Rays with an experienced arm in the bullpen capable of going multiple innings, as he has 17 career starts under his belt, 16 of which came with the Yankees before Tommy John surgery. Whitley has had an uneven spring, generating a 4.91 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB over 11 innings across five appearances.

News
Archer was named the Rays' Opening Day starter Thursday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

For the third consecutive year, Archer will take the mound on Opening Day as Tampa Bay's ace. Archer got off to a rocky start last season, notching a 4.66 ERA with 18 home runs allowed in the first half of the year before settling down with a 3.25 ERA and 1.01 WHIP after the All-Star break. He has looked sharp this spring, striking out 13 batters over 10.2 innings. Archer and the Rays will host the Yankees to start the season.

Injuries
Back - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/20/17)
News
Boxberger (back) will officially start the season on the disabled list and is scheduled to take a week off throwing before building back up, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It was announced Monday that Boxberger was unlikely to be ready prior to Opening Day, as he continues to deal with a strained lat muscle that has plagued him since early March. The penciled-in setup man won't be ready for the opener, but still aims to return to the Rays at some point in April. Until then, the Rays will have to mix and match with the likes of Xavier Cedeno, Erasmo Ramirez and Danny Farquhar in the seventh and eighth innings.

Back - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/26/17)
News
Cobb was scratched from his minor league start Sunday due to left lower back tightness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Cobb missed a majority of the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but has appeared to be healthy during spring camp thus far. This is the first news of any sort of back ailment, so this late scratch is certainly something worth monitoring. The 29-year-old will be an important piece to the Rays' rotation in 2017.

News
Snell (2-2), who struck out three but gave up four earned runs on six hits and one walk over 4.2 innings in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox, threw his fastball with more conviction, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Although Snell exhibited better control in terms of issuing only one free pass, he still threw 92 pitches and allowed a three-run home run to Pablo Sandoval. On the positive side, the young lefty did appear to have more confidence while deploying his fastball and also used his slider effectively. Snell noticed the difference in his approach while still acknowledging he has plenty of room for improvement. "I was happy with the way I attacked the zone,'' Snell said. "I felt like I took a stride, I felt like I was more into it, more believing in what I have, more aggressive. Definitely taking that positive, knowing there's a bunch I still need to work on.''

News
Tolleson, who gave up two earned runs on two hits and two walks over an inning against the Yankees on Thursday, continues to struggle with his velocity, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran reliever was called out after the game by manager Kevin Cash following another outing in which his velocity was stuck in the low 90s. Thursday, he retired three of seven batters and gave up a home run to Ronald Torreyes while seeing his ERA climb to 7.20 over five appearances. Tolleson's struggles potentially open up a roster spot for a young arm like Austin Pruitt or Jaime Schultz, who've posted 1.84 and 2.13 ERAs, respectively.

Injuries
Heel - Expected to be out until at least May 1 (Updated - 3/21/17)
News
Duffy's current physical setbacks may not be directly related to his surgically repaired heel, The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Duffy's progress from his surgery has appeared to stagnate this spring, but Rays manager Kevin Cash mentioned Friday that the issues may lie with the tendons and muscles in the shortstop's ankle and calf. The atrophy that may have come about in the post-surgical period could be responsible for Duffy's slow recovery, which has led to him missing all of spring training.

News
Smith is expected to make the Rays' roster and start when the regular season kicks off April 2 against the Yankees, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Colby Rasmus' groin injury has prevented him from playing in the field and may land him on the DL to start the regular season. That leaves Smith in position to start in left field until Rasmus is ready to return.

News
Ramirez, who took his second loss of spring against the Pirates on Friday, is nevertheless looking refreshed and effective, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

The rubber-armed righty gave up three runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk over four innings, but also notched four strikeouts. His spring ERA sits at a solid 3.12 and has looked as good as he did early last season before he succumbed to some fatigue later in the campaign. Ramirez was on a 60-pitch limit against the Pirates but got through his four frames with 58, 39 of which found the strike zone. If he isn't dealt for a right-handed hitting outfielder, Ramirez is expected to be a valuable asset for the Rays in long relief during the coming season.

Groin - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/25/17)
News
Rasmus (groin) says he expects to open the season on the disabled list, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rasmus, who has been held out of fielding drills throughout camp, believes he's still not ready to play in the outfield, a prerequisite for regular playing time. Although he's appeared in four games as a DH this spring, it's unlikely the Rays would continue with this strategy when the season begins. Look for Mallex Smith to take over left field duties if Rasmus does indeed end up on the DL.
