  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Cruises to win in Detroit

    Springs (4-3) allowed two unearned runs on four hits and struck out six over six innings to earn the win Thursday over the Tigers.

    Springs had to work around a pair of errors from Yandy Diaz in the third inning, which ultimately allowed two runs to score. Other than that, Springs was sharp in his longest start since June 24. The southpaw threw 60 of 85 pitches for strikes. For the season, he has a 2.50 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 83:16 K:BB across 22 outings (14 starts), though he's allowed 10 runs (seven earned) through 19.1 innings in his last four appearances. Springs is tentatively lined up for a tough road start in Milwaukee next week.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Loses to Cleveland

    Springs (3-3) was charged with the loss Friday against the Guardians after allowing three runs six hits with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings.

    The left-hander kept Cleveland scoreless through three innings, but he gave up a run in the fourth and a two-run homer to Jose Ramirez in the fifth. Springs is without a victory in his past five starts, and he has a 5.32 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB across 23.2 frames during that stretch. He tentatively lines up to make his next start in Detroit next week.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Reinstated from IL, starting Sunday

    Springs (lower leg) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list and is starting Sunday versus the Royals, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    As expected, Springs is back from the IL and is starting for the first time since July 5 after dealing with tightness in his lower right leg. The left-hander has been impressive this season, posting a 2.53 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 70 punchouts over 64 innings in 19 appearances, including 11 starts.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Returns with no-decision

    Springs allowed two runs (one earned) on eight hits over 4.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

    Springs returned from the injured list Sunday and showed signs of rust early. He coughed up an RBI single to Bobby Witt in the first inning followed by an RBI sacrifice fly to Nick Pratto in the second. Springs lowered his season ERA to 2.50 with a 72:15 K:BB through 68.1 frames. However, over his last four starts, he's posted a 5.30 ERA across 18.2 innings. Springs is lined up to face Cleveland at home next week.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Likely to return Sunday

    Springs (lower leg) is expected to return from the 15-day injured list to start Sunday's game in Kansas City, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Springs was moved to the IL on July 10 due to right lower leg tightness, but he'll end up spending close to the minimum amount of time on the shelf so long as he completes a bullpen session Thursday or Friday without any renewed discomfort. Before being shelved with the injury, Springs had made a productive early-season transition from the bullpen into the rotation. Over his first 11 starts, Springs has produced a 3.02 ERA while striking out 59 in 53.2 innings.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Heading to injured list

    Springs was placed on the 15-day injured list, retroactive to July 7, with tightness in his lower right leg, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Springs presumably picked up the injury during his start last Tuesday against Boston, and he'll move to the injured list rather than make his next turn through the rotation Monday. The left-hander will be eligible to return immediately after the All-Star break July 22, though it's unclear if he's expected to be healthy by that time. Josh Fleming was promoted in a corresponding move and is likely to fill Springs' spot in the rotation.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Gives up three runs in no-decision

    Springs gave up three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings in an 8-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Springs got into trouble early, giving up home runs off the bats of Xander Bogaerts and Trevor Story in the first and second innings. He eventually settled down to throw a couple of scoreless frames before being pulled after four innings of work. The 29-year-old left-hander has asserted himself as a fairly dependable starter in 2022 after beginning the season in the bullpen. Despite giving up three earned runs over four innings he still has a 2.53 ERA and 1.05 WHIP this season. Springs, who has now given up five home runs over his last two starts, is expected to make his next start Monday at home in a rematch against the Red Sox.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Added back to roster

    Springs (personal) was activated from the family medical emergency list Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Springs was away for a few days while tending to a personal matter, but he is back with the team and will jump right back into the rotation Tuesday night against the Red Sox. Springs has faced Boston only once this season, and he tossed two scoreless innings of relief against them back in late April.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Returning to start Tuesday

    Springs (personal) will rejoin the Rays and start Tuesday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Springs ended up staying home during the team's trip to Toronto to deal with a family medical matter. While Springs allowed three home runs his last time out, he's been fantastic overall this season in his hybrid starter/reliever role, posting a 2.25 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 60 innings. There's little reason to think his workload will be significantly limited in his return.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: On family medical emergency list

    Springs was placed on the family medical emergency list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Springs was a potential starter for Thursday's matchup against the Blue Jays, but he'll spend some time away from the team after landing on the bereavement list. He'll be forced to miss 3-to-7 days but should be an option to start sometime next week. Matt Wisler is serving as the opener Thursday, while Ryan Yarbrough will likely serve as a bulk reliever after he was called up.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Won't start, could work out of 'pen

    Springs won't start Wednesday's series finale with the Brewers, as lefty Jalen Beeks is listed as the Rays' opening pitcher in what could be a bullpen day, Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Though Springs is available to pitch on his standard four days' rest, the Rays have opted to go a different route Wednesday. Springs could still be deployed as a bulk reliever behind Beeks, who hasn't covered more than 2.1 innings in any of his 19 appearances on the season and likely won't be asked to work deep into Wednesday's contest. If Springs isn't used Wednesday, Tampa Bay would likely plan on having him make a start at some point during their four-game series in Toronto that begins Thursday.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Fans nine in quality start

    Springs didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Pirates, allowing three runs on three solo home runs among seven hits over six innings. He struck out a season-high nine without walking a batter.

    The Rays handed Springs a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but the southpaw's inability to keep the ball in the park ended up costing him a win despite his otherwise impressive performance. He's served up multiple homers in three of his last six starts, but he's otherwise been sharp with a 3.03 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 38:6 K:BB through 32.2 innings over that stretch.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Tagged for four runs

    Springs gave up four earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six over 4.1 innings in a 7-6 win over the Orioles on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Springs labored through 4.1 innings in Baltimore, snapping a string of six effective outings dating back to mid-May. Everything unraveled for Springs in the bottom of the fifth when four singles and a walk plated three runs and knocked him out of the game with his team up 6-5. If Springs had managed to get out of the inning, he would have been in line for his fourth win of the year. The southpaw has been solid since being transitioned to a starter's role earlier in the season and will look to rebound next week at home against the Pirates.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Earns win Sunday

    Springs (3-2) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out five over 5.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday versus the Twins.

    Springs was stingy on the mound and received plenty of support from the Rays' offense. This was his second win in eight starts, and it's the fifth time he's managed to keep runs off the board since moving into the rotation. Overall, he's pitched to a strong 1.45 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 50:12 K:BB in 49.2 innings across 16 outings. He'll look to keep up his success in Baltimore next weekend.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Six scoreless in no-decision

    Springs struck out five in six shutout innings while allowing six hits and two walks in a 4-2 win Tuesday against St. Louis. He did not factor into the decision.

    Springs allowed baserunners in each inning but managed to pitch around trouble and hold the Cardinals scoreless. The lefty threw a season-high 92 pitches. He has excelled since moving into a starting role in May, compiling a 2.01 ERA and 31:7 K:BB in 31.1 innings. As he continues to build endurance and pitch later into games, he should have more chances to pick up victories.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Fans seven in no-decision

    Springs pitched five innings against Texas on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

    Springs allowed a solo homer to Sam Huff in the second inning and another to Nathaniel Lowe in the fourth, but the Rangers didn't get any additional extra-base hits or score any more runs against him. The southpaw's season ERA actually rose to 1.88 despite the decent outing, highlighting how well he's pitched for the Rays this year. Springs also tied his season high with seven strikeouts in the outing, and he has notched 20 punchouts over his past 16.2 frames.
