      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Three-RBI day Sunday

      Jesus Sucre went 3-for-5 with three RBI from a two-run double and a run-scoring single in an extra-inning loss to the Twins on Sunday.Sucre put together his best offensive outing of the season out of his usual spot at the bottom of the order. The reserve backstop closed out the All-Star break with five RBI over his last two games, as he'd also plated a pair of runs in Saturday's blowout win after having entered the game for Wilson Ramos (hamstring). With Ramos' health and even future with the team in doubt at present, it's conceivable Sucre continues enjoying an expanded role coming out of the All-Star break.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Productive in extra-innings win

      Jesus Sucre went 2-for-3 with two RBI from a double and also walked in an extra-innings win over the Yankees on Sunday.The backup catcher had been struggling in recent starts, but he enjoyed one of his most productive days of the season at the plate Sunday. Sucre's two-bagger was only his second extra-base hit of the campaign, and his overall tally represented his fourth multi-hit effort of 2018. Sucre only sees a handful of starts per month on average, and his value to the Tampa Bay Rays primarily rests in his defensive prowess behind the dish.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Struggling since forearm injury

      Jesus Sucre, who went 1-for-3 with an RBI from a sacrifice groundout in a win over the Royals on Tuesday, is just 1-for-10 since returning from a forearm injury May 8.The reserve backstop was hit by a pitch in the forearm April 30 and didn't make another appearance until the May 8 contest against the Braves, a span of five games. Sucre is primarily lauded for his work behind the dish, but prior to his current downturn, he'd generated a solid .281 average over his first 32 at-bats.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Still out Friday

      Jesus Sucre (forearm) remains out of the lineup Friday against Toronto, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sucre was hit in the wrist Monday against the Tigers and was removed from the game. His X-Tampa Bay Rays were negative, but he's yet to return to action. Of course, as a backup catcher, there's no guarantee he would have played in the last three games even if he wasn't injured, so it's difficult to tell the exact extent of his injury.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: X-rays come back negative

      X-Tampa Bay Rays confirmed that Jesus Sucre (forearm) didn't break any bones after being hit by a pitch Monday against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sucre's X-rays came back negative following Monday's matchup, meaning he won't be forced to miss significant time. He stated that his forearm/wrist area is sore, and he'll likely be re-evaluated prior to Tuesday's game to determine whether he'll be available. The Rays' everyday starter behind the dish, Wilson Ramos (leg), has been held out of the lineup for the last two days, so it wouldn't be surprising if the team promoted a catcher from the minors Tuesday even if neither Ramos nor Sucre require a trip to the disabled list.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Racks up three hits Sunday

      Jesus Sucre went 3-for-4 with a run in a win over the Twins on Sunday.Sucre's playing time opportunities are typically sparse as Wilson Ramos' backup, yet he's been able to churn out three multi-hit outings already this season. The 29-year-old is valued first and foremost for his work behind the dish, but he's been able to make solid contributions with the bat thus far over a small sample, going 8-for-24 with two RBI, a walk and two runs.

      Rays' Jesus Sucre: Typically solid in spring

      Jesus Sucre is hitting .278 (5-for-18) with a home run, two RBI, a walk and a run in eight spring training games.The solid line at the plate combined with Sucre's typically strong work behind the dish leaves him well-positioned for a second consecutive season as the veteran backup to Wilson Ramos. Sucre displayed a penchant for making good use of his sporadic playing time opportunities in his first Tampa Bay Rays campaign last season, finishing with career highs in extra-base hits (13), homers (seven) and RBI (35) over 192 plate appearances. However, with Ramos at full health to open the new season, Sucre is likely in for at least a slight drop in playing time in 2018.
