Bemboom won't need surgery on his sprained knee but will nevertheless miss 4-to-6 weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bemboom appeared in just three games before heading to the injured list. He was only on the roster due to injuries to Mike Zunino (quadriceps) and Michael Perez (oblique), so he may not have a job to come back to once healthy.
Bemboom (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. As expected, Bemboom was sent to the IL after spraining his left knee during Wednesday's win over the Marlins. Nick Ciuffo is expected to be summoned from Triple-A Durham ahead of Friday's series opener against the Yankees to platoon alongside Travis d'Arnaud behind the dish for the time being.
Bemboom was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins with left knee soreness, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Bemboom made his second start behind the plate since being called up last week but was unable to finish the contest. The 29-year-old is expected to be evaluated further after the game. The Rays can ill afford another injury at catcher with Mike Zunino (quad) and Michael Perez (oblique) already on the injured list.
Bemboom was called up by the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 29-year-old has yet to make his big-league debut. He's been a career .235/.309/.349 hitter over eight minor-league seasons. With Mike Zunino (quad) and Michael Perez (oblique) both on the injured list, Bemboom is expected to back up Nick Ciuffo.
Bemboom (thumb) was reinstated from Triple-A Durham's 7-day injured list and went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to Norfolk. Sidelined in mid-March after requiring surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, Bemboom remained at extended spring training until late April before heading to High-A Charlotte for a three-game rehab stint. After reporting no setbacks during the rehab stint, Bemboom rejoined Durham this week and should handle No. 2 catching duties behind Nick Ciuffo.
