Rays' Luke Raley: Placed on IL
The Rays placed Raley on the 10-day injured list Friday with a cervical strain, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Raley hasn't started a game since colliding with a staff member during batting practice last Saturday, and he reported numbness in his arm following a pinch hit appearance Wednesday. Raley's move to the injured list is retroactive to Thursday, so he will still be eligible to return for the final game of the season Oct. 1, but there's a chance the Rays keep him on the shelf until the postseason. Top prospect Junior Caminero was selected from Double-A Montgomery to fill Raley's spot on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Luke Raley: Will miss time with neck issue
Rays manager Kevin Cash said Thursday that Raley will miss some time due to a neck issue, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.
It's not clear yet whether Raley will be placed on the injured list, but at the very least it sounds like he will be unavailable for at least several days. He had been set to receive an MRI after his left arm felt numb during a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday. That the Rays are now calling it a neck issue suggests it could be some sort of nerve problem. It's an injury which stems from a collision Raley was involved in during batting practice last Saturday, and he hasn't made a start since the incident.... See More ... See Less

Rays' Luke Raley: Getting MRI on Thursday
Raley will get an MRI on his left arm Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Raley said his left arm went numb after a pinch-hit appearance in the seventh inning of Wednesday's game. He hadn't appeared in a game since Saturday when he collided with a team staff member during pregame batting practice, and the Rays believe Raley's recent arm problems are likely a result of the collision. More will be known regarding Raley's status when his MRI results come back Thursday, but fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day until then.... See More ... See Less

Raley went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-1 victory over the Giants.
Raley's 17th home run of the year was certainly his most unusual -- he blasted a Ross Stripling offering 425 feet off the top of the right-field wall before it ricocheted away from the Giants outfielders, giving Raley plenty of time to cruise into home standing up.
