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.... See More ... See Less

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.

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.... See More ... See Less
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.

Dodgers' Luke Raley: Recalled, starting Tuesday
Raley was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City and is starting Tuesday's game against the Rockies in right field, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Cody Bellinger was initially slated to start the contest, but he'll instead move to the injured list with a left rib fracture. Raley will take his spot on the 28-man roster and is set to enter Tuesday's lineup in right field, pushing Mookie Betts to center field. Raley went 10-for-59 with a double, homer and two RBI during his previous stints in the majors this season.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Luke Raley: Slugs two homers at Triple-A
Raley went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four total RBI for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.
Previous reports erroneously stated that Raley was placed on the 60-day IL in early September. The outfielder appears to have instead been shifted to -- and since returned from -- the COVID-19-related injured list. Raley's pair of long balls Friday pushed his season total in the minors to 15, which he has complemented with a .306/.408/.590 slash line and 58 RBI over 262 plate appearances. However, the outfielder was less successful in a 30-game stint with the Dodgers earlier in the campaign, batting just .169 with one homer across 59 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Luke Raley: Shifts to 60-day IL
Raley was placed on the 60-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Wednesday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The organization didn't officially give a designation for Raley's move to the IL, but Castillo suggests that he is likely one of two players currently inactive for Triple-A Oklahoma City for COVID-19 reasons. Raley slashed .169/.246/.237 with one home run and 22 strikeouts across 65 plate appearances with the big club earlier this season. His transfer to the IL, along with that of Sheldon Neuse (undisclosed), allowed Los Angeles to add Jake Jewell and Ryan Meisinger to the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Luke Raley: Recalled and starting
Raley was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday and will bat eighth and play left field against the Rockies.
Raley gives the Dodgers an extra option in the outfield with Cody Bellinger (hamstring) and Mookie Betts (hip) both temporarily unavailable.

Dodgers' Luke Raley: Rejoins Dodgers
Raley was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma prior to Saturday's game against the Rangers, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
With Max Muncy forced to go on the injured list with a right-oblique strain, a spot opened up for Raley to return to the big leagues. Raley posted a subpar .182/.280/.273 slash line across 50 plate appearances during his previous stints with the big club this season, so he'll look to find more success at the dish this time around....

Zach McKinstry (back) was a late scratch from the lineup, forcing Raley into a starting role.
