  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Signs minor-league deal

    Mazza signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Friday, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

    Mazza spent the 2021 campaign with the Rays but was shuffled between the Triple-A and major-league clubs. He logged a 3.16 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 37 innings across 26 appearances (three starts) at Durham, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him invited to spring training in 2022.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Mazza was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Friday, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

    Mazza threw 27.1 largely unremarkable innings this season, striking out a modest 18.8 percent of opposing batters en route to a 4.61 ERA. He'll become a minor-league free agent Sunday.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Not on ALDS roster

    Mazza will not be a part of the Rays' ALDS roster, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Rays will carry 13 pitchers, but Mazza won't be one of them. He didn't do anything special in 27.1 innings of relief during the regular season, posting a 4.61 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Recalled by Rays

    Mazza was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Mazza spent just over a month in the minors, and he struck out eight in 6.2 scoreless innings across his last five appearances. He missed time in September after he was placed on the COVID-19 IL but will now rejoin the major-league bullpen late in the regular season.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Back from COVID-19 IL

    Mazza retired the two batters he faced in relief Saturday after being reinstated from Triple-A Durham's 7-day injured list earlier that day.

    Mazza was on Durham's IL for just over two weeks due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols. He'll likely fill a multi-inning role out of the Durham bullpen for the rest of the season, though his presence on the Rays' 40-man roster will make him a candidate for a call-up if the big club requires another relief arm at any point.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    Mazza was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Mazza was sent down Friday, and he'll need to spend some time away from the minor-league club since he was in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. However, the right-hander is expected to rejoin the team soon as long as he doesn't test positive for the virus.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Optioned to Triple-A

    Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Mazza earned the save Friday against the Orioles when he allowed a run on two hits and no walks while striking out one in three innings. The right-hander gave up just one run in 6.1 innings during his three appearances since he rejoined the major-league bullpen last weekend, but he'll now head back to the minors.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Gets hold in majors return

    Mazza secured his first hold in a win over the White Sox on Sunday, allowing two hits and recording two strikeouts over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Mazza made his latest return to the majors count with a solid showing that was part of an impressive four-reliever effort after starter Chris Archer logged just two innings due to hip tightness. The right-hander has shuttled frequently between Triple-A Durham and the majors, but he's been very reliable recently with five scoreless appearances in his last six trips to a big-league mound.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Brought back from minors

    The Rays recalled Mazza from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    One day after being optioned to Triple-A, Mazza is eligible to rejoin the Rays after designated hitter Nelson Cruz (illness) was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday. Mazza, who covered two scoreless frames in relief in Friday's series opener with the White Sox, should be available out of the bullpen Sunday.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Recalled by Rays

    Mazza was called up from Triple-A Durham on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Mazza has bounced back and forth between the big-league roster and Triple-A this season but has failed to impress in his 19 innings at the highest level. He's struggled to a 6.16 ERA and 1.42 WHIP while striking out just 17.9 percent of opposing batters. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role during his time with the team. Dietrich Enns heads to Durham to clear space in the bullpen.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Sent back down

    Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Mazza was called up by the Rays on Friday, and he tossed two scoreless innings in the series opener against the White Sox. He has a 3.73 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 31.1 innings with the minor-league club this year, and his demotion will help make room for right-hander David Hess, whose contract was selected Saturday.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Heads back to Durham

    The Rays optioned Mazza to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Mazza will surrender his spot in the Tampa Bay bullpen to Dietrich Enns, whose contract was selected from Durham in a corresponding move. During his multiple stints in the big leagues this season, Mazza has served mostly as a low-leverage reliever. Over 10 appearances, Mazza has coughed up 13 earned runs on 20 hits and seven walks across 19 innings.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Recalled by Rays

    Mazza was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

    Mazza was sent down last week, but he'll now rejoin the major-league club after Pete Fairbanks (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day IL on Thursday. The right-hander has posted a 6.60 ERA in 15 innings this year, but he's tossed 6.1 scoreless innings across his last three appearances.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Optioned back to Durham

    Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Mazza was recalled by the Rays on Wednesday, so his latest stint with the club was short-lived. However, he pitched well in Thursday's contest, throwing 2.2 scoreless innings while striking out three and allowing only one walk. Mazza could be a bullpen piece for the Rays down the stretch, particularly if they are forced to deal with injuries.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Moves up to big club

    Tampa Bay recalled Mazza from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Mazza will add some length to the Tampa Bay bullpen, but his usage will likely be limited to low-leverage or mop-up spots. The 31-year-old right-hander previously made seven appearances for the big club, posting an 8.03 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 12.1 innings.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Returns to minors

    Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Wednesday's loss to the White Sox, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

    Mazza was recalled from Triple-A prior to Wednesday's contest and will return there after striking out the only two batters he faced. The 31-year-old has surrendered 11 runs with a 5:4 K:BB across 12.1 innings for Tampa Bay this season.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Rejoins Tampa Bay

    The Rays recalled Mazza from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Mazza will provide the Rays with another multi-inning option out of the bullpen in the short term after Collin McHugh was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Over his prior six relief outings with Tampa Bay this season, Mazza covered 11.2 innings and allowed 11 earned runs on 16 hits and four walks.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Activated, optioned to minors

    Mazza (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Mazza missed just shy of a month with shoulder inflammation. He bounced on and off the big-league roster before suffering the injury, so it's no surprise to see him head to the minors for now.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Rehab assignment forthcoming

    Mazza (shoulder) is expected to report to Triple-A Durham this week, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Mazza will likely pitch in simulated games in Durham or begin a rehab assignment with the affiliate after his right shoulder checked out fine during his most recent bullpen session. Whenever he's activated from the 10-day injured list, 31-year-old won't necessarily have a spot waiting for him with the big club.

  • Rays' Chris Mazza: Completes bullpen session

    Mazza (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated Mazza felt good during the throwing session, so the right-hander should be ready to ramp up for a more extended bullpen session within the next few days, or face hitters in live batting practice. Considering the extent to which he's struggled with the big club this year, Mazza could be optioned to Triple-A Durham upon activation.
