Top Luke Raley News

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Back on bench

    Raley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Raley started each of the Rays' past four games at either designated hitter or in a corner-outfield spot, going 2-for-13 with two walks and seven strikeouts. The 27-year-old is now sitting on a .580 OPS and a 31.9 percent strikeout rate in his 69 plate appearances in the majors this season, so it wouldn't be surprising if Raley sees his opportunities get scaled back in the near future.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: On bench versus righty

    Raley is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The lefty-hitting Raley will take a seat against a right-hander (Drew Hutchison), marking the third time in four games he's been excluded from the lineup. Though Raley appeared poised to get regular playing time in the outfield when the Rays moved Josh Lowe and Brett Phillips off the active roster, the trade-deadline pickups of David Peralta and Jose Siri may result in Raley settling into more of a part-time role.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Out against lefty

    Raley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game agains the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The lefty-hitting Raley will take a seat for the series finale while southpaw Yusei Kikuchi takes the hill for Toronto. Roman Quinn will fill in as the Rays' right fielder in place of Raley, who went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Tuesday's 3-1 loss.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: On bench Sunday

    Raley is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians.

    The lefty-hitting Raley will put a five-game hitting streak on hold and take a seat with the Guardians expected to deploy a lefty primary pitcher (Kirk McCarty) in the series finale. The newly acquired David Peralta will enter the outfield in Raley's stead, but both players should have clear paths to steady playing time versus right-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Takes seat Friday

    Raley isn't starting Friday against the Guardians, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Raley has gone 7-for-19 with a homer, two doubles, three RBI and two runs over the last six games but will get a day off Friday. Josh Lowe is shifting to right field while Roman Quinn starts in center.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Slugs first homer

    Raley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Orioles.

    Raley has started five consecutive games, and he's managed to collect a hit in four of them. On Wednesday, he took Tyler Wells yard in the second inning to record his first homer of the season and third of his career. Raley should continue to get regular run thanks to the depleted Rays' outfield, and in a very small sample, he's shown the ability to take advantage.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Tallies two doubles

    Raley went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a walk Monday against the Orioles.

    Raley made his third consecutive start and has been in the lineup for three of Tampa Bay's first four games coming out of the All-Star break. He's made the case for more consistent playing time in the Rays' depleted outfield by reaching base six times and collecting two RBI across 12 plate appearances in that limited span.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Draws third straight start

    Raley will serve as the Rays' designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Monday's game at Baltimore, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    He'll be making his third consecutive start after going 1-for-5 with a pair of walks and RBI in the past two contests while getting looks at first base and in left field. Raley looks as though he could see added opportunities while all of Wander Franco (wrist), Harold Ramirez (thumb), Kevin Kiermaier (hip) and Manuel Margot (knee) are stuck on the injured list.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Scores run in start

    Raley went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Monday against the Red Sox.

    Raley was promoted to the majors after Kevin Kiermaier (hip) landed back on the injured list Sunday. Raley isn't likely to find himself in the starting lineup often, but he replaced Harold Ramirez in left field Monday. He maintained a .290/.385/.560 line across 118 plate appearances with Triple-A Durham prior to being recalled -- strong numbers even considering the positive offensive environment.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Moves up from Triple-A

    The Rays recalled Raley from Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

    Raley was summoned from Triple-A after fellow outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (hip) landed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. Josh Lowe and Brett Phillips are likely to serve as the primary replacements in center field for Kiermaier, so Raley will presumably be limited to a depth role while he's up with the big club for the second time this season.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Returns to minors

    Raley was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Recalled from Triple-A

    Raley was called up from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday.

    Raley is set to make his season debut with the Rays after being recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday. He'll fill one of the roster spots that were left when Manuel Margot (knee) and Kevin Kiermaier (hip) were placed on the 10-day injured list. The outfielder has produced a .299/.374/.575 slash line with seven homers, 25 RBI, 14 runs and two stolen based over 87 at-bats with Durham this season.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Sent down Wednesday

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

    Raley was traded from the Dodgers to the Rays in mid-March, but he was unable to land a spot on the Opening Day roster. He'll likely be a candidate to fill in as depth in the outfield at some point in 2022.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Traded to Tampa Bay

    Raley was acquired by the Rays from the Dodgers on Friday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Tanner Dodson, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Raley made his big-league debut for the Dodgers last season and had a .538 OPS in 72 plate appearances, and he'll now joined the Rays after being traded for third time in his career. He'll compete for a depth role in the outfield behind Tampa Bay's established group of Randy Arozarena, Kevin Kiermaier, Manuel Margot and Austin Meadows, with top prospect Josh Lowe also waiting in the wings.

  • Dodgers' Luke Raley: Absent from NLDS roster

    Raley was not included on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The 27-year-old was on the roster for the NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals and struck out as a pinch hitter. The Dodgers went heavy on bench bats for the one-game playoff, and Raley and Zach McKinstry are the odd men out for the NLDS with David Price and Walker Buehler on the roster.

  • Dodgers' Luke Raley: Added to wild-card roster

    Raley was added to the roster for Wednesday's NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals.

    Raley spent most of the year at Triple-A Oklahoma City but will join the active roster for Wednesday's postseason game. He slashed .294/.393/.570 with 19 home runs, 69 RBI, 60 runs and eight stolen bases across 72 minor-league appearances this year and will likely be available off the bench against St. Louis.

  • Dodgers' Luke Raley: Optioned to Triple-A

    Raley was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

    Raley's latest stint on the big-league roster lasted just five days. He went 2-for-7 with a homer across three appearances. The Dodgers decided they needed an extra arm instead of an extra bat, so Andrew Vasquez was recalled to take his place on the roster.

  • Dodgers' Luke Raley: Homers in Wednesday's loss

    Raley went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Wednesday in the Dodgers' 10-5 loss to the Rockies.

    Raley has started in right field in both of the Dodgers' games since he was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, going 2-for-7 between the contests. The 27-year-old looks like he'll have the chance to play regularly against right-handed pitching while Chris Taylor (neck) is day-to-day and while Cody Bellinger (rib) is on the injured list.
