Rays' Matt Duffy: Plays three innings in instructional league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (heel) logged three innings at shortstop and took three at-bats for the Rays' instructional league squad Monday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Duffy (heel) will end up missing the entire 2017 season after enduring multiple setbacks from offseason surgery to address a left heel injury, but the infielder appears determined to get some work to ease any concerns the Rays may have about his health heading into next spring. It's expected that Duffy will work deeper in his subsequent appearances in instructional league games, with the end goal of eventually playing a full nine-inning contest. Assuming Duffy's heel presents no further complications heading into next spring, he should be given every opportunity to vie for a starting job a shortstop, even if the Rays retain the arbitration-eligible Adeiny Hechavarria.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Slated for first instructional league action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (heel) will join the Rays' instructional league team Thursday and is scheduled to play his first game Monday in Bradenton, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Duffy will thus take his first step toward eventually stepping on a major-league field next spring after missing all of the 2017 campaign. Following his instructional league tenure, he's scheduled to also put in time in winter ball, with both stints intended to thoroughly prepare him to participate in spring training without restrictions.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Believes he'll be ready for '18 campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (heel), who officially confirmed last Friday that he will not play before the end of the regular season, believes he'll be ready to go for the 2018 campaign, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports. "The plan is looking toward instructional league," said Duffy, who began the season on the disabled list while trying to recover from Achilles surgery and later had a second surgery. "The goal is to not have any reservations going into Spring Training, and having as normal an offseason as possible."

Duffy had come into spring training last March with high expectations following September 2016 heel surgery, as he'd figured on being ready to play by the middle of that month and serve as the team's everyday starting shortstop. However, issues started to crop up by late March and led to Duffy's recovery undergoing a series of fits and starts over the next several months. The 26-year-old has participated in fielding drills and batting practice at various points during his rehab, but he was only able to get in a total of eight at-bats over three games with High-A Charlotte during 2017 before being shut down. A late-June follow-up procedure that removed a calcium deposit from the heel appears to have been pivotal to finally eliminating the discomfort Duffy had persistently felt, and he's now set to test himself during both instructional league and winter ball over the coming months.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Ramps up activity Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (heel) took ground balls and batting practice Monday afternoon, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "A good sign," manager Kevin Cash said. "He looked the part. Didn't see any restrictions."

There is no longer hope for Duffy taking the field this season, so Cash's statement is in reference to the shortstop building some momentum heading into the offseason. The 26-year-old is scheduled to play in both instructional league and winter ball during the next few months in the hopes of preparing for what the team and Duffy hope is a spring training without restrictions in 2018.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Continues limited in regimen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy (heel) is performing limited baseball activities but doesn't have a timetable for a return to game action, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The shortstop is starting to run out of time to log some games at the major-league level in 2017, as he's still unable to return to the minor-league rehab assignment he had to abandon back in mid-May. Duffy underwent a procedure on June 23 that removed a calcium deposit from his surgically repaired heel, and while that appeared to relieve a great deal of his discomfort, he's apparently not yet comfortable enough to test himself in game conditions.
