Top Jeffrey Springs News

  • 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.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Stuck with loss in quality start

    Springs (2-2) took the loss Friday as the Rays fell 2-0 to the Yankees, giving up two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.

    It was a strong performance from the southpaw, who tossed 80 pitches (56 strikes) in his first quality start of the season. However, Springs served up a pair of solo homers in the fourth inning and had no margin for error. Since moving into the rotation in May, he has a 2.21 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 20.1 innings over four outings.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Earns win, lowers ERA to 1.32

    Springs (2-1) tossed 5.2 scoreless innings against Baltimore on Saturday, allowing one hit and four walks while striking out seven to earn the win.

    Springs tossed a season-high 5.2 frames in the victory, and he completed his second straight scoreless outing despite walking more batters in the contest (four) than he had across his first 11 appearances combined. The southpaw's seven strikeouts were also his most of the campaign thus far, and he got there on the strength of 16 swinging strikes. Springs appears to be building up his pitch count now that he is part of the rotation -- Saturday was the first time he has reached 80 pitches this season. He'll face a tough challenge when he takes on the Yankees at home in his next start.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Turns in scoreless outing

    Springs allowed four hits over 4.2 shutout frames in Sunday's win over Toronto. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.

    The closest Springs came to allowing a run was in the third inning when he faced a first-and-third threat with two outs before forcing Vladimir Guerrero to fly out. The 6-foot-3 southpaw lowered his season ERA to 1.66 with an impressive 20:3 K:BB through 21.2 innings. He's currently lined up to take the mound in Baltimore next weekend.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Falls to Angels

    Springs (1-1) took the loss Monday as the Rays were downed 11-3 by the Angels, allowing three runs on three hits over four innings. He struck out four.

    Making his second start of the season, the southpaw kept the Angels off the board for three frames before serving up a three-run shot to Jared Walsh with two outs in the fourth. Springs got the hook after 57 pitches (41 strikes), and while his 2.12 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 18:3 K:BB through 17 innings on the season are all strong numbers, his fantasy value will be limited in the rotation until he gets stretched out a little more and can last long enough to qualify for a win.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Moving into rotation

    Springs is slated to start or work behind an opener as a primary pitcher in Monday's game in Seattle, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    He'll be moving into the rotation as a replacement for Josh Fleming, who was demoted to Triple-A Durham on Saturday. Springs has gotten off to a hot start out of the Tampa Bay bullpen this season, turning in a 0.69 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB across 13 innings. In his most recent relief appearance Tuesday against the Athletics, Springs built up to 31 pitches over 3.1 scoreless innings. Expect him to be capped around 50 pitches in Monday's appearance, and it could take him an additional two or three outings after that to get stretched out enough to handle a traditional starter's workload.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Decent as opener

    Springs opened and allowed a run on three hits in 2.2 innings while striking out three in a 2-1 win Thursday over Seattle. He did not factor into the decision.

    Springs served as the opener and lasted a season-best 2.2 innings. He allowed a two-out RBI triple in the first inning but otherwise shut down the Mariners. It was the first appearance for the lefty in five days following a stint on the COVID-19 injured list. He's been highly effective in the early going for the Rays, accumulating a 0.93 ERA and 0.83 WHIP while striking out 12 in 9.2 innings.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Opening Thursday's game

    Springs will serve as the opener Thursday against the Mariners, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

    Springs has thrown seven scoreless innings to begin the season, though he has never pitched more than two frames in an appearance. He'll almost certainly be capped at a pair of innings in Thursday's start as a result. Jalen Beeks is a strong candidate to follow Springs in a bulk relief role, though that has not formally been announced by the team.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Reinstated from IL

    Springs (COVID-19) was activated from the injured list Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Springs was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list after being deemed a close contact, but his trip to the IL lasted only one day. Vidal Brujan was optioned back to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Goes on COVID-19-related IL

    Tampa Bay placed Springs on the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday after he was deemed a close contact of an infected person, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Meanwhile, the Rays activated infielder Yandy Diaz from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move now that his symptoms of the virus have dissipated. According to MLB rules, unvaccinated players deemed to be close contacts are required to complete five-day quarantines, while no quarantine applies for vaccinated players who are deemed close contacts but are testing negative. Springs has been stellar through seven appearances out of the Tampa Bay bullpen, striking out nine and allowing five baserunners over seven scoreless frames.
