    • Cory Rasmus: Released by Rays
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus (groin) was released by the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 29-year-old righty has been dealing with a groin injury throughout spring camp and simply didn't have a role in the minors. Rasmus appeared in 19 games for the Angels last season, posting a 5.84 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP over 24.2 innings, but appears to be on the move without making an impact in Tampa Bay. He'll look to latch on with a minor-league contract elsewhere.

    • Rays' Cory Rasmus: Starts season on DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus (groin) is on the 7-day disabled list with Double-A Montgomery, Rashad Snell of Alabama News reports. The right-hander was sidelined for much of spring training due to this groin issue, and it doesn't appear to have improved much since the beginning of March. It's unclear how long he'll remain out, but a firmer timetable should come forth as he progresses in his recovery program.

    • Rays' Cory Rasmus: Slowed by groin injury
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus has been dealing with a pulled groin in recent days, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The injury has prevented Rasmus from appearing in Grapefruit League games since his spring debut back on Feb. 25. The 29-year-old is attending camp as a non-roster invitee, so if he doesn't get over the groin issue quickly, his chances of winning an Opening Day bullpen gig may rapidly diminish.

    • Rays' Cory Rasmus: Will sign with Rays
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus has agreed to a minor league contract with Tampa Bay, Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times reports. Rasmus will join the same organization as his brother, Colby, after spending the last four seasons with the Los Angeles Angels. The right-hander missed most of last season after undergoing groin surgery and struggled upon his return. He finished 2016 with a 5.84 ERA over 24.2 innings in relief and was designated for assignment in November. Rasmus likely provides organizational depth, but could be an option to fill the bullpen vacancy left by Kevin Jepsen.

    • Cory Rasmus: Opts to become free agent
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rasmus declined an outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake and is now a free agent. Rasmus' 2016 season was one to forget. Between multiple stints on the disabled list, he managed to throw just 24.2 innings over 19 games. During said games, he allowed 16 runs off 25 hits and 16 walks, giving him a 5.84 ERA and 1.66 WHIP for the year. Due to his struggles, Rasmus will likely take on a low-leverage bullpen role, regardless of where he ends up signing.
