Rays' Matt Duffy: Latest MRI comes back clean
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy's (heel) most recent MRI on his surgically repaired left heel came back clean, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The recovering shortstop also mentioned that after four days of rest and his heel in a cast it actually felt "normal," certainly a cautiously optimistic sign for a player whose progress has often appeared to stagnate this spring. Duffy will continue to proceed very deliberately with his efforts to build up strength and eventually test the heel, leaving his potential timetable for return still firmly up in the air.

Rays' Tim Beckham: Expects to return to lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckham (hip) plans to return to the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckham will be held out of game action for the third day in a row due to a sore hip flexor muscle, but he's slated to go through an individual workout Tuesday. Team trainers will likely assess Beckham's condition after the session, and if all goes well, he should return to the field and receive at least a couple at-bats Wednesday. Beckham is on track to open the season as the Rays' primary shortstop with Matt Duffy (heel) bound for the DL, and could also be a leadoff option against left-handed pitching.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Scratched Tuesday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin was scratched from the Rays' Grapefruit League lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins due to an illness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Franklin's removal from the lineup looks precautionary, so he shouldn't need more than a day or two to recover. The 26-year-old won't have an everyday starting role to begin the season, but with the ability to play every position save for catcher and center field, Franklin could still find his way to two or three starts per week, even when the team is relatively healthy.

Rays' Alex Cobb: Bullpen session on tap Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cobb (back) said he would throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

After experiencing lower-back tightness over the weekend, Cobb was scratched from his scheduled minor-league start Sunday, but the Rays aren't harboring much concern that he'll be at risk of missing the start of the season. If his back responds well to the bullpen session, Cobb will take the hill Friday against the Phillies in a Grapefruit League start, which would put him on track to make his first turn in the rotation. The Rays have only announced that Chris Archer would receive the Opening Day start against the Yankees, but Cobb looks on track to line up third in the rotation behind Archer and Jake Odorizzi.

Rays' Tommy Hunter: Wins bullpen spot in spring camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter was informed Tuesday that he made the Rays' Opening Day roster, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

It's expected the Rays will make a formal transaction to add Hunter, who was attending camp as a non-roster invitee, to the 40-man roster later in the week. The hard-throwing right-hander has bounced around the league over the past few seasons, with his propensity for surrendering long balls proving to be his biggest hurdle. However, he was able to avoid back-breaking homers for the most part in 2016 during stints with the Indians and Orioles, and carried over that success to spring training, where he's allowed only one homer in eight innings while holding opposing batters to a .265 average. He'll likely serve in a middle-relief role for the Rays to begin the season.
