    Rays' Josh Fleming: Collects win Friday

    Josh Fleming (8-5) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in five innings, earning the win over Boston on Friday.It was by no means a pretty performance for the 25-year-old, but Tampa Bay's offense gave him plenty of support in the win. Friday was the first time Fleming completed five innings since June 19, when he went 6.1 innings against Seattle. The southpaw has a reasonable 4.15 ERA to go with a 1.19 WHIP and 51:22 K:BB across 82.1 innings, but he'll have little appeal outside of AL-only formats if he doesn't work deeper into games. His next start is expected to come versus Seattle next week.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Tosses four innings Friday

    Josh Fleming didn't factor into the decision Friday against Cleveland after allowing three runs on six hits and two walks while fanning one across four innings.Fleming has not completed five innings in any of his last four starts and hasn't tossed a quality start since May 1, so it seems he simply can't be trusted to pitch deep into games. The southpaw has also allowed at least three runs in three of his last five outings while posting an 11:7 K:BB in that span.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Hit hard in Saturday's loss

    Josh Fleming (7-5) took the loss against Atlanta on Saturday, allowing seven earned runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.1 innings. He also struck out two and hit a batter.The young left-hander had his worst outing as a big-leaguer yet, allowing a pair of home runs in same-handed confrontations with Joc Pederson and Freddie Freeman to account for part of the damage. Atlanta bats were able to square up consistently against Fleming, considering Kevan Smith, opposing starter Max Fried, Ozzie Albies and Guillermo Heredia all laced doubles off him as well. Fleming will look to regroup and bounce back in his next turn, which will likely come Thursday or Friday versus Cleveland.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Credited with win

    Josh Fleming (7-4) earned the win in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Cleveland. He allowed just one walk and struck out two over 2.2 scoreless innings.Fleming was excellent in his return from a short stay on the injured list with a calf injury. The southpaw and four other Tampa Bay pitches combined to limit Cleveland to just two walks in the seven-inning contest. Fleming lowered his ERA to 3.26 with a 1.03 WHIP and 42:17 K:BB through 69 innings this year. The 25-year-old has started six of his 14 appearances, but his role going forward has not yet been determined, although he's pitched well enough to maintain a spot in the rotation.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Officially activated Wednesday

    Josh Fleming (calf) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Although Collin McHugh will serve as the opener in Wednesday's nightcap, Fleming will likely serve as the primary pitcher after he spent just over the minimum amount of time on the injured list with a right calf strain. The lefty has made 13 appearances (six starts) for the Tampa Bay Rays this year, and he's posted a 3.39 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 66.1 innings. Left-hander Ryan Sherriff was sent down in a corresponding move.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Expected back Tuesday

    Josh Fleming's recovery from a right calf strain has gone well, and manager Kevin Cash expects him to be activated off the injured list and available Tuesday against Cleveland, the Associated Press reports.The left-hander will end up spending just the minimum 10 days on the IL if Cash's prognosis proves accurate. Michael Wacha is currently listed as the Tampa Bay Rays' probable starter for Tuesday's game, but it's possible Cash eventually confirms the veteran and Fleming will operate in tandem for that game.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Placed on injured list

    Josh Fleming was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right calf strain Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.Fleming served as the primary pitcher in Friday's game against the Angels, and he allowed an unearned run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in 3.2 innings. However, he apparently sustained a calf injury during the no-decision and will miss at least 10 days as a result. However, the southpaw is hopeful that he won't be forced to miss much time, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Louis Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Entering behind opener

    Josh Fleming will serve as the Tampa Bay Rays' bulk reliever behind opener Andrew Kittredge on Friday against the Angles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Fleming served as a traditional starter in his last outing and surrendered five earned runs across 6.1 innings against the Mariners. He'll look to bounce back in Friday's outing and should be aided by Kittredge working in front of him. Fleming's last time working as a bulk reliever came on June 13, when he fired four scoreless innings against the Orioles.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Surrenders five runs in no-decision

    Josh Fleming pitched 6.1 innings against Seattle on Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.The left-hander looked to be in for a short outing after a second-inning grand slam by J.P. Crawford gave Seattle a 5-2 lead, but Fleming toughed out 6.1 innings and 110 pitches and ended up with a no-decision. He gave up five runs for the second time in his past three outings, though he had a four-inning, no-hit, no-run appearance between the two appearances. Fleming's lack of strikeouts -- he has fanned only 38 batters over 62.2 frames -- limits his fantasy appeal, but his 3.59 ERA and 1.07 WHIP are useful ratios. He has worked almost equally as a starter and bulk reliever this season, so it's unclear how he'll be deployed in his next outing.

    Rays' Josh Fleming: Collects sixth win

    Josh Fleming (6-4) allowed only one walk and struck out three over four scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday over Baltimore.Michael Wacha opened the game, allowing a run in two innings before Fleming took over on the mound. That arrangement worked out well, as Tampa Bay took over the lead on Fleming's watch, and he was able to pick up his sixth win of the season. The southpaw has a 3.20 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB across 56.1 innings this season. He's started five of his 11 appearances, and he's tentatively scheduled to make his next outing in Seattle during next weekend's series. It's unclear if he'll work as a traditional starter or behind an opener.
