Rays' Louis Head: Called up again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled by the Rays on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head has bounced on and off the major-league roster all season and is about to embark on his remarkable 12th separate stint on the roster. Such is the life of a reliever with options, as his 2.51 ERA through 32.1 innings certainly doesn't merit constant demotions. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role during his time on the roster, which may not even last until the end of the week considering how his season has gone thus far.

Rays' Louis Head: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Head has been sent back and forth between the majors and minors all season, and another roster move will be added to the tally Sunday. The 31-year-old has been effective for the Rays despite the constant movement with a 2.51 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB in 32.1 innings.

Rays' Louis Head: Opening Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head will start Thursday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday and has delivered 2.2 frames in two outings since the promotion, and he'll serve as an opener for Thursday's series finale versus Detroit. He has a 2.67 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB across 30.1 big-league innings despite constantly moving between the majors and minors. Dietrich Enns is slated to follow as Tampa Bay's primary pitcher.

Rays' Louis Head: Back with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

With a 2.93 ERA and 1.01 WHIP in 27.2 innings with the Rays this season, Head has developed into a trustworthy, low-leverage relief option for manager Kevin Cash. He and Dietrich Enns fill the roster spots of Shane McClanahan (back) and Matt Wisler (finger), who both went on the injured list Friday.

Rays' Louis Head: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head spent a day in the Rays' bullpen and was effective as a middle reliever Tuesday, as he tossed two scoreless innings against the Red Sox. However, he'll head back to the minors after Matt Wisler (finger) was activated Wednesday.

Rays' Louis Head: Recalled by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled by the Rays on Tuesday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Head has bounced on and off the edge of the major-league roster throughout the season. That's the life of a reliever with options, as the 31-year-old's 3.16 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 25.2 innings are seemingly good enough for him to stick around. Taylor Walls was optioned to clear space on the roster, with the Rays electing to go with an extra arm over an extra infielder for now.

Rays' Louis Head: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head had pitched well in the weeks following the All-Star break and allowed just one unearned run in 11 innings across nine appearances. However, he struggled in his last four outings and gave up six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six in 3.2 innings. His demotion will make room for Pete Fairbanks (shoulder), who is expected to rejoin the Rays' bullpen during their weekend series against the Orioles.

Rays' Louis Head: Serving as opener Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head will serve as the Rays' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head rejoined the Rays on Monday after a one-day stint in the minors and will make the first start of his MLB career. The 31-year-old has a 1.85 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB over 24.1 innings this season. Ryan Yarbrough (COVID-19 injured list) is poised to follow Head as the primary pitcher Wednesday.

Rays' Louis Head: Rejoins major-league bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

The 31-year-old was sent down Sunday, but he'll rejoin the major-league bullpen a day later after right-hander Matt Wisler (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Head has posted a 1.96 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 23 innings across 17 relief appearances in the majors this year.

August 15, 2021 01:28 PM
Rays' Louis Head: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head's back-and-forth between the majors and minors will continue, as he'll return to Durham five days after being promoted. The 31-year-old has a 1.96 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB over 23 innings for the Rays this season, so it should only be a matter of time before he rejoins the big-league club.

Rays' Louis Head: Receives call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Head from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday.

After being demoted to Durham on Saturday, Head was able to rejoin the big club in only three days after fellow reliever DJ Johnson (shoulder) was moved to the 10-day injured list. Over his 20 innings out of the Tampa Bay bullpen this season, Head has posted excellent ratios (1.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, 8/1 K/9), but the Rays' wealth of quality relief arms will likely relegate him to low-leverage work.

Rays' Louis Head: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Head made seven relief appearances during his time with the major-league club, and he allowed an unearned run on five hits and two walks while striking out 12 in nine innings. Despite his impressive performance, he'll head back to Triple-A after Collin McHugh (arm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Rays' Louis Head: Impressing again with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head, whose current major-league stint dates back to July 23, owns a spotless ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 14.1 K/9 across seven innings in the five appearances he's logged since his promotion from Triple-A Durham.

The career minor leaguer's success is no outlier as far as 2021 is concerned, as he produced a 1.96 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 23 innings with the Bulls and now owns a 1.50 ERA and 0.89 WHIP across 18 big-league frames. All three earned runs that Head has allowed with the Rays this season came during an April 30 outing against the Astros, with the right-hander giving up just a single unearned run over 11 other appearances.

July 23, 2021 05:20 PM
Rays' Louis Head: Back with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 31-year-old will fill the roster spot vacated by Rich Hill, who was traded to the Mets on Friday. Head has a 2.45 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 6:4 K:BB over 11 frames for Tampa Bay this season and should fill a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.

June 28, 2021 06:52 PM
Rays' Louis Head: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head was promoted over the weekend and will return to Durham after posting two scoreless frames in his lone appearance. The right-hander has a 2.45 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 6:4 K:BB across 11 innings this season, so he should receive another big-league opportunity.

June 27, 2021 08:00 AM
Rays' Louis Head: Recalled by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Head spent over a month in the minors, but he'll return to the major-league roster with Josh Fleming (calf) hitting the injured list. The right-hander made 11 relief appearances for Triple-A Durham and posted a 2.13 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 12.2 innings.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head made a relief appearance in Thursday's win over the Orioles and allowed no hits and two walks while striking out one in two scoreless innings. The right-hander will return to the minors but could rejoin the major-league bullpen at some point.

May 19, 2021 02:44 PM
Rays' Louis Head: Recalled by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was recalled by the Rays on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head was sent to Triple-A Durham on Thursday but will now return to the major-league roster as part of a shuffle after Luis Patino (finger) and Cody Reed (thumb) were placed on the 10-day injured list. Head has made five relief appearances for the Rays this year and has posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in seven innings.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Head was recalled by the Rays on Sunday, and he threw three scoreless innings across two appearances before being sent back down to the minors. His demotion is expected to make room for the activation of Diego Castillo (groin).

Rays' Louis Head: Awarded call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Head from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Tampa Bay will bring Head back on the 26-man active roster as a replacement for outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (wrist), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. Head is expected to work mostly in lower-leverage situations out of the Tampa Bay bullpen while he's up with the big club.
