Rasmussen pitched five innings, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision. The 26-year-old commanded the strike zone in this one with 52 of his 70 pitches being strikes. The only major blow against him was a solo home run by Lourdes Gurriel in the fifth inning. Since joining the pitching rotation Aug. 12, Rasmussen has posted a fantastic 1.69 ERA and 0.84 WHIP over 32 innings. He's projected to start next against the Astros on Wednesday.
Rasmussen (3-1) earned the win Tuesday after pitching five scoreless innings against the Blue Jays. He surrendered two hits, walked one and struck out three. The 26-year-old was able to limit the damage to just three baserunners, none of which passed second base. He only threw 52 pitches in the contest as the team continues to limit his innings. Rasmussen has posted a 1.33 ERA and 0.67 WHIP in six starts since Aug. 12. He may not make another start this week with Dietrich Enns expected to take the ball against Detroit and Shane McClanahan (back) possibly returning after the 10-day minimum.
Rasmussen (2-1) allowed a run on six hits and struck out two in five innings, earning the win Tuesday over Boston. The only run the right-hander gave up came on a second-inning groundout. Rasmussen still isn't pitching very deep into games, but he hasn't allowed more than one run in any appearance since July 5. He owns a 3.25 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 65:23 K:BB across 61 innings between Tampa Bay and Milwaukee this year. The 26-year-old will look to keep up the strong pitching next week in Toronto.
Rasmussen pitched four innings in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox, allowing one run on three hits and no walks while striking out five. He did not factor into the decision. The 26-year-old held his own in this one, with the only blemish coming as a result of a second-inning RBI single by Christian Vazquez. Since being moved from the bullpen to the starting rotation on Aug. 12, Rasmussen has posted an impressive 1.59 ERA and 0.76 WHIP over 17 innings. His next expected start is projected to be Tuesday against the Red Sox in Boston.
Rasmussen took a no-decision in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Phillies after allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out one over five innings. The five-inning outing represented a new career high for Rasmussen, who is slowly ramping up his pitch count after moving from the bullpen to the rotation Aug. 12. In his first three starts with the Rays, Rasmussen has allowed only two runs in 13 innings, but a 5.5 K/9 and zero wins during that stretch have somewhat muted his overall fantasy impact.
