  • Rays' Luis Patino: Seven Ks in fifth rehab start

    Patino (oblique) struck out seven over five innings and allowed two runs on six hits and no walks in his most recent rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Durham.

    Aside from two wild pitches, Patino was supremely efficient in Sunday's outing, the fifth overall of his rehab start. He tossed 57 of his 78 pitches for strikes, and at this point, Patino looks to be fully stretched out for starting duty. The Rays have yet to declare their plans for Patino, but the big club will have a need for an extra starter this week with a doubleheader on tap Saturday in Toronto. Patino has been on the 60-day injured list since April 12 due to an oblique strain, which he suffered in his first appearance of the season.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Fourth rehab outing coming Tuesday

    Patino (oblique) is scheduled to make his next rehab start Tuesday at Triple-A Durham, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Patino will be making his fourth rehab appearance overall and his second overall with Durham following a two-start stint in the rookie-level Florida Complex League. In his initial outing for Durham, Patino built up to 2.2 innings and 46 pitches, so he may need another rehab start beyond Tuesday's outing to get fully stretched out. Though Patino broke camp as a member of the Tampa Bay rotation before suffering the oblique strain in his season debut April 11, he could have to settle for a multi-inning relief role with the big club once he's activated from the 60-day injured list.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Makes second rehab start

    Patino (oblique) completed his second rehab start Saturday with the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, covering two scoreless innings and striking out five while allowing one hit and no walks.

    Patino upped his pitch count to 29 in the outing and will now likely advance to one of the Rays' higher-level affiliates to make at least two more rehab starts before potentially coming off the 60-day injured list. The 22-year-old right-hander has been on the shelf since straining his oblique in his season debut with the Rays on April 11.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Set for live batting practice

    Patino (oblique) will throw live batting practice Wednesday, Adam Berry of reports.

    Patino threw bullpen sessions last Wednesday on Saturday and felt good after each occasion. He'll progress to facing hitters for the first time since being placed on the injured list April 11, which will serve as a significant step forward in his recovery. Patino will almost certainly go on a rehab assignment before being activated, so his return is likely to come in the latter half of June at the earliest.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Resumes mound work

    Patino (oblique) threw off a mound Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Patino resumed mound work in late April, and Tuesday's throwing session was the first time he threw off a mound since landing on the 60-day injured list in mid-April. The right-hander isn't eligible to rejoin the Rays until mid-June, but he should be able to start building back up now that he's throwing off a mound.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: To resume playing catch

    Patino (oblique) will resume playing catch Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Patino sustained an oblique strain in mid-April and was subsequently placed on the 60-day injured list, but he'll now be able to resume throwing following a two-week shutdown. The right-hander isn't eligible to return to the majors until at least mid-June, but a return timetable should come into focus as he progresses through a throwing program.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Patino (oblique) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Patino started Monday's game against the Athletics but was removed with an oblique strain after throwing just 13 pitches. The right-hander is in line for a significant absence and won't be eligible to return until at least mid-June. Josh Fleming will take Patino's place in the rotation, while Tommy Romero is also a candidate to make additional starts for the Rays' short-handed pitching staff.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Deactivated due to oblique strain

    The Rays placed Patino (oblique) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    After entering Monday as the majors' lone unbeaten team, the Rays were dealt a reality check in a 13-2 loss to the Athletics in the home opener. In addition to the blowout loss, the Rays lost Patino just 13 pitches into his first start of the season due to the oblique strain. He'll now go on the shelf for at least the next week and a half, though the volatile timelines often associated with oblique injuries means that fantasy managers should bank on him missing more than the minimum amount of time. After Chris Mazza struggled mightily in a mop-up role behind Patino in Monday's game, the Rays plan to turn to Josh Fleming as a replacement in the rotation for Patino beginning with Thursday's series finale versus the Athletics, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Battling oblique strain

    Patino was diagnosed with a strained left oblique after leaving Monday's start against the A's, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

    Patino recorded two outs on 13 pitches during the first inning before exiting Monday's contest with the injury. The severity of the strain is unclear, but oblique injuries often require a stint on the injured list, so it wouldn't be a major surprise if he's forced to miss some time.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Exits with apparent injury

    Patino exited his start Monday against the Athletics with an apparent injury, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Patino was slowed by shoulder soreness in spring training, but it's unclear if it's the same issue that caused him to exit after just 13 pitches. Details about the nature and severity of the young righty's injury should become clear following further tests.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Will begin season in rotation

    Patino has won a spot in Tampa Bay's starting rotation and will make his first regular season start April 11 against Oakland, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Patino had a sore shoulder early in spring training, but is apparently back to full strength as the regular season begins. However, he may see a limited workload early in the season and could form a tandem with Josh Fleming. Patino has thrown just two innings in major-league spring training, giving up one hit, no walk and no strikeouts.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Cleared to start

    Patino (shoulder) will start Thursday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Patino was scratched from his previous spring start March 22 on account of a sore right shoulder, but he was cleared to resume throwing soon thereafter and received the green light to pitch Thursday following a pair of bullpen sessions along with a live batting practice session. Since he wasn't shut down while he dealt with the injury, Patino looks as though he's still on track to break camp as a member of the Tampa Bay rotation.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Bullpen scheduled for Tuesday

    Patino (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Patino threw live batting practice Saturday and evidently felt good afterward, as the team has already scheduled his next throwing session. Assuming he responds well following Tuesday's bullpen session, the right-hander should have a chance to make his spring debut late next week.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Completes bullpen session

    Patino (shoulder) threw an 18-to-20 pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Patino was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday with some shoulder soreness, but his quick return to the mound indicates it's not a serious concern. The 22-year-old is now scheduled to throw live batting practice Saturday as he moves toward a return to game action.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Scratched with arm issue

    Patino was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Red Sox after his arm didn't feel right Monday, John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    On the one hand, any arm injury has the potential to be problematic for a pitcher. On the other, "not feeling right" is about as vague and mild as you can get. Patino will throw batting practice Wednesday, so the Rays don't appear to be significantly concerned at this point, but it's possible he winds up getting shut down if his arm continues to feel off following that session.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Charged with loss in extra innings

    Patino (0-1) allowed two runs on a hit and a walk in 1.1 innings to take the loss against the Red Sox in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday.

    Patino tossed a perfect 12th inning Sunday and retired the first batter he faced in the 13th frame, but he issued a one-out walk before giving up a walkoff home run to Christian Vazquez. The right-hander tossed seven scoreless innings across his final three appearances of the regular season but was unable to replicate his success in his first playoff appearance of 2021.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Grabs win in relief

    Patino (5-3) picked up the win in Saturday's 12-2 rout of the Yankees, striking out three batters in two perfect innings of relief.

    Shane Baz got the start but pitched only 2.2 innings before turning things over to the bullpen with the Rays already ahead 7-1, and Patino -- who took over to begin the fifth inning -- was awarded the victory due to his fantastic effort. He fired 20 of 29 pitches for strikes, and he'll wrap up the regular season with a 4.31 ERA and 74:29 K:BB through 77.1 innings. Look for the 21-year-old to fill a multi-inning role for Tampa Bay in the playoffs.

  • Rays' Luis Patino: Lasts three innings Wednesday

    Patino allowed a hit, a walk and a hit batter while striking out one over three scoreless innings versus Toronto on Wednesday. He did not factor in the decision.

    It's unclear why Patino was pulled from the game after just 37 pitches (25 strikes). The 21-year-old may be having his innings managed, but he was effective in a short start Wednesday. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 4.54 and WHIP to 1.32 with the strong showing, figures he complements with a 70:29 K:BB across 73.1 innings. He's projected for a road start in Houston next week, which will likely be his last of the regular season if Tampa Bay doesn't shuffle its rotation.
