    • Rays' Jonny Venters: Promoted to Double-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Venters (elbow), who posted a 1.20 ERA over 15 games with High-A Charlotte, was promoted to Double-A Montgomery on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Venters is attempting a comeback from three Tommy John surgeries at age 32, having last pitched in the majors in 2012. The veteran southpaw also generated a .176 BAA, 1.00 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB over his 15 innings in Charlotte, earning him a bump up another level closer to the big leagues. If Venters acquits himself well with the Biscuits, a move up to Triple-A Durham before the end of the season is not necessarily out of the question.

    • Venters (elbow) worked a scoreless eighth inning in High-A Charlotte's 4-3 win over Fort Myers on Friday, striking out one and walking one. The 32-year-old is in the midst of attempting a comeback from his fourth torn elbow ligament, and he looked impressive in five outings with the Gulf Coast League Rays before Friday as well. Venters has now fired six scoreless innings across six appearances, allowing just four hits and two walks while notching seven strikeouts. If his rehab continues without setbacks, it's conceivable Venters could ascend to the big-league club at some point in August.

    • Rays' Jonny Venters: Opens year on minor-league DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Venters (elbow) will open the year on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Durham, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. He is working his way back from a third Tommy John surgery, so it's shocking that he is even still in professional baseball. It is unclear when he will be able to get into game action for the Bulls.

    • Rays' Jonny Venters: Rejoins Rays on minors pact
      By RotoWire Staff

      Venters (elbow) re-signed with the Rays on a minor-league deal Thursay, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Venters has struggled to recover from three Tommy John surgeries, although he managed to throw pitches in professional action for Tampa's High-A Charlotte. His gradual recovery will continue with an organization who may find a role for him in due time should the 32-year-old recapture some of the promise he flashed early in his career -- perhaps the extreme groundball portion of his approach.

    • Rays' Jonny Venters: Suffers UCL tear
      By RotoWire Staff

      Venters (elbow) suffered a torn UCL, Sam Blum of MLB.com reports. Venters was dealt more devastating news as he will likely be shelved for a fourth consecutive season due to elbow injuries. A career 2.23 ERA pitcher over 229.2 innings in the majors, the 31-year-old now has another long road of recovery ahead of him.
