Rays' Jonny Venters: Returns to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Venters inked a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Rays on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Venters had spent the last two seasons within the Rays' organization, and will return to the club with a new minor-league deal for 2018. During the past year, he was busy recovering from another Tommy John surgery, which only allowed him to pitch a total of 23.2 innings between four minor-league affiliates. The 32-year-old is attempting to return from the third such surgery of his career. He last pitched in the big leagues in 2012 with the Braves.

Rays' Jonny Venters: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Venters (elbow), who posted a 1.20 ERA over 15 games with High-A Charlotte, was promoted to Double-A Montgomery on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Venters is attempting a comeback from three Tommy John surgeries at age 32, having last pitched in the majors in 2012. The veteran southpaw also generated a .176 BAA, 1.00 WHIP and 17:6 K:BB over his 15 innings in Charlotte, earning him a bump up another level closer to the big leagues. If Venters acquits himself well with the Biscuits, a move up to Triple-A Durham before the end of the season is not necessarily out of the question.

Rays' Jonny Venters: Pitches well in first High-A outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Venters worked a scoreless eighth inning in High-A Charlotte's 4-3 win over Fort Myers on Friday, striking out one and walking one.

The 32-year-old is in the midst of attempting a comeback from his fourth torn elbow ligament, and he looked impressive in five outings with the Gulf Coast League Rays before Friday as well. Venters has now fired six scoreless innings across six appearances, allowing just four hits and two walks while notching seven strikeouts. If his rehab continues without setbacks, it's conceivable Venters could ascend to the big-league club at some point in August.

Rays' Jonny Venters: Opens year on minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Venters (elbow) will open the year on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Durham, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

He is working his way back from a third Tommy John surgery, so it's shocking that he is even still in professional baseball. It is unclear when he will be able to get into game action for the Bulls.

Rays' Jonny Venters: Rejoins Rays on minors pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Venters (elbow) re-signed with the Rays on a minor-league deal Thursay, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Venters has struggled to recover from three Tommy John surgeries, although he managed to throw pitches in professional action for Tampa's High-A Charlotte. His gradual recovery will continue with an organization who may find a role for him in due time should the 32-year-old recapture some of the promise he flashed early in his career -- perhaps the extreme groundball portion of his approach.
