    • Whitley fired a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's 8-1 win over the Cubs, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout. Whitley snapped back to form after allowing four runs (two earned) over an inning to the Red Sox last Friday. The 28-year-old right-hander has had a strong September otherwise, generating four scoreless efforts and a 6:1 K:BB over 5.1 innings. However, his lack of hold opportunities can be a drag on his value in formats that take the metric into account, even as he sports a solid 3.36 ERA and 1.05 WHIP.

    • Rays' Chase Whitley: Dominant in majors return
      By RotoWire Staff

      Whitley got four outs on four strikeouts in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the White Sox. Just recalled from Triple-A Durham late Saturday, Whitley mowed through Kevan Smith, Rymer Liriano, Adam Engel and Alen Hanson on a quick 13 pitches. Whitley has been a solid bullpen option all season for manager Kevin Cash and now has multiple strikeouts in his last three appearances at the major-league level.

    • Rays' Chase Whitley: Called back up Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Whitley was called up from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Whitley had been sent down on Aug. 23 and the Rays had to let a mandatory 10-day period pass before bringing him back up to the big-league club. The 28-year-old right-hander has a 3.35 ERA and 1.04 WHIP over 51 innings this season and will serve as another bullpen option for manager Kevin Cash.

    • Rays' Chase Whitley: Optioned to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Whitley was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Whitley tossed 1.2 innings of relief Wednesday -- allowing one run on three hits and a walk while striking out two batters -- so the Rays will send him back to the minors in exchange for a fresh bullpen arm (Chih-Wei Hu). He owns a 3.35 ERA in 51 big-league innings this season, so he should be back up when rosters expand in September.

    • Rays' Chase Whitley: Brought back from minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Whitley was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Whitley had functioned as one of the Rays' primary setup options earlier this season, but he mostly faded to a long-relief role beginning in June after the team regained health in the bullpen and acquired the likes of Steve Cishek, Dan Jennings and Sergio Romo. After spending the last two weeks at Triple-A, Whitley will rejoin the Rays to provide length out of the bullpen, a skill that will take on greater importance with Monday's starter, Jake Odorizzi, returning from a foot injury suffered in his most recent outing.
