Rays' Cody Reed: Won't make Opening Day roster
The Rays reassigned Reed to minor-league camp Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He was one of three relievers sent packing as the Rays reduced their group at big-league camp to 38 players. Reed, who made 12 appearances with the big club in 2021, is expected to see the bulk of his action at Triple-A Durham during the upcoming season now that he no longer possesses a spot on the 40-man roster....

Rays' Cody Reed: Returns to Rays on minors deal
Reed signed with the Rays as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Cody Reed: Becomes free agent
Reed rejected an outright assignment to the minors Friday and elected free agency, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.
Reed recorded a 3.72 ERA in 9.2 innings for the Rays before spending most of the season on the injured list, first with a thumb injury and then following thoracic outlet surgery. He looked good in seven rehab outings to end the year, striking out 12 batters over 7.1 scoreless innings, so he'll seemingly be at full health heading into next season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Solid with bump up in competition
Reed (shoulder) fired a scoreless sixth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts in Triple-A Durham's win over Gwinnett on Saturday and now has three consecutive scoreless appearances with the Bulls.
Reed was impressive over his 13 pitches, throwing eight for strikes in his third one-inning outing for the Bulls over a six-day period. The right-hander has recorded a 4:0 K:BB over the last pair of appearances as well, and he's certainly building up plenty of momentum heading into the offseason ahead of what should be a spring training without restrictions in 2022....

Reed (shoulder) threw an inning for the rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reed has already been ruled out for the season since he underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in early June, but he returned to game action Thursday for the first time since mid-May.

Rays' Cody Reed: Shifts to 60-day injured list
Reed (thumb) was transferred to the 60-injured list Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Reed hit the injured list with a left thumb injury Wednesday, and the issue is evidently severe enough to sideline him for at least two months. He'll be ineligible to return until after the All-Star break. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the team to claim Deivy Grullon off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Officially placed on IL
Reed was placed on the 10-day injured list with left thumb weakness Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reed's thumb injury resurfaced Tuesday, and his placement on the injured list was expected. The 28-year-old also missed time in late April due to a left thumb injury, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action. Right-hander Louis Head and right-hander Trevor Richards were recalled from Triple-A Durham as part of the resulting shuffle.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Likely returning to IL
Manager Kevin Cash said Reed's thumb injury has resurfaced and the left-hander is expected to be placed on the injured list Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The 28-year-old spent time on the injured list in late April due to some numbness in the area of his left thumb, and the issue apparently came back Tuesday. Reed received an injection to address the injury previously, though it's unclear whether he'll receive similar treatment this time around.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Effective in IL return
Reed (thumb), activated from the injured list earlier in the day, fired a perfect ninth inning in a loss to the Astros on Saturday, recording one strikeout.
Reed got just half of his 14 pitches into the strike zone, but the 28-year-old still walked away with his fifth scoreless effort in six appearances this season. The southpaw sports a 2.08 ERA and three holds across 4.1 innings covering six trips to the mound in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Activated from injured list

Reed was targeting a return early next week, but he'll be able to return to the major-league club a few days earlier than expected. Right-hander Trevor Richards was optioned to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Throwing session set
Reed (thumb) will throw at the Rays' alternate training site Thursday and could be activated in time for the start of a road trip that begins Monday against the Angels, the Associated Press reports.
The southpaw hit the injured list April 20 and received an injection in his ailing thumb later in the week. The fact Reed is now ready to test things out via a throwing session is encouraging and appears to give him a legitimate chance of spending just over the minimum time required on the IL....

Rays' Cody Reed: Slated to resume throwing
Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Reed (thumb) will resume throwing soon, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reed has been on the 10-day injured list since Tuesday due to left thumb weakness, but he received an injection Friday. Cash said that Reed is in line to return from the injured list soon, but a better timetable for his return could be revealed once he resumes throwing.... See More ... See Less

Rays' Cody Reed: Takes extra-inning loss
Reed (0-1) pitched the 10th inning and took the loss Thursday against the Rangers, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and one walk.

Rays' Cody Reed: Solid spring leads to roster spot
Reed won an Opening Day bullpen spot after posting an unblemished ERA, 0.16 WHIP and .050 BAA across six Grapefruit League appearances (one start).
The southpaw allowed just one hit over 6.1 innings and posted a 6:0 K:BB, getting about as close to perfect as possible. Reed notably worked in tandem with Michael Wacha in Tuesday's exhibition finale against the Tigers, and manager Kevin Cash left open the possibility that the two hurlers could be deployed in a similar arrangement Monday against the Red Sox....

Rays' Cody Reed: Making strong impression
Reed, who fired a perfect fifth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts in a Grapefruit League loss to the Twins on Saturday, has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring across three appearances.
The 27-year-old is perfect through his trio of spring frames and has rung up four strikeouts overall as he makes an airtight case for an Opening Day bullpen spot. Reed dealt with an unusual finger injury shortly after arriving from the Reds at the trade deadline in 2020, but Adam Berry of MLB.com reports the southpaw is making an excellent impression on manager Kevin Cash with his early showings. "He's had a really good three outings, so that's encouraging to see," Cash said. "He looks totally healthy. He's landing the breaking ball in the zone."... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Seems back to full strength
Reed (finger) reported feeling good after facing batters in live batting practice Monday, an activity he was scheduled to repeat Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
The southpaw appears to be getting closer to making his spring debut, with the team being relatively deliberate in his progression through the first couple of weeks of spring training. Reed began experiencing weakness and numbness in his throwing hand shortly after arriving from the Reds at the trade deadline last season, a development that affected his grip and ability to hold the ball at the time. However, Reed was throwing without issues in bullpen sessions during offseason workouts and continues to look fully recovered from last season's mysterious ailment.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Cody Reed: Injured finger fully healed
Reed (finger) has been able to complete bullpen sessions at Tropicana Field without issue during his offseason workouts, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
After being acquired from the Reds in late August, Reed pitched just 2.2 innings out of the Tampa Bay bullpen before being shut down for the season in September with a mysterious injury to his left pinkie finger. Reed appears to have made a full recovery from the injury over the winter, so he should face no limitations in the spring as he looks to lock down a spot in Tampa Bay's Opening Day bullpen....
