Rays' Jacob Faria: Fires three frames in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faria allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and two walks while striking out two batters through three innings during Thursday's win over the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

The rookie had been pitching out of the bullpen following an abdomen injury that cost him nearly a month of action, so this was his first start since Aug. 16. As a result, it shouldn't be surprising that Faria went just three innings Thursday. Barring another relief appearance, Faria will finish the 2017 campaign with a 3.43 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.7 K/9. His solid debut and strikeout upside could make the 24-year-old righty a popular breakout candidate entering 2018.

Rays' Jacob Faria: Confirmed as Thursday starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faria will start Thursday's game against the Yankees in place of Alex Cobb (rest), ,Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The move had been expected since earlier this week, when manager Kevin Cash had alluded to the fact that Cobb would likely skip his final turn after pitching a career-high 179.1 innings this season. Faria will thus get an opportunity to close out a solid rookie season on a high note, one that's seen him compile a 5-4 record and 3.32 ERA over 13 outings.

Rays' Jacob Faria: Touched up for pair of runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faria racked up four strikeouts but allowed two earned runs on two hits over two innings in Sunday's 9-4 loss to the Orioles.

Faria had fired three clean innings against the Red Sox on Sept. 16 in his return from the disabled list, but he wasn't quite as successful Sunday. The 24-year-old right-hander did have a successful starting stint earlier this season, posting a 5-4 record and 3.32 ERA over 13 outings. As per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Faria will get a chance to add to those numbers Thursday, as he's projected to take the mound in place of Alex Cobb while the latter forgoes his final start of the campaign.

Rays' Jacob Faria: Activated and headed for bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faria (abdomen) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Faria is ready to return to action after missing nearly a month with his abdominal injury. He posted quality ratios over 13 starts with the Rays earlier this season -- a 3.32 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 77:29 K:BB over 78.2 innings -- but the Rays' rotation is full, so he will pitch out of the bullpen for the time being -- and maybe the rest of the way in order to limit his innings.

Rays' Jacob Faria: No spot in rotation for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Faria (abdomen), who worked 3.1 innings in a rehab assignment for Low-A Hudson Valley last Saturday, is over his abdominal strain but does not have a spot in the big-league rotation at this point, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old right-hander allowed three runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks during the outing, while also recording three strikeouts. The one appearance was apparently enough for the Rays to deem Faria is back to full health, although that doesn't equate to a return to the starting rotation. The fact that there are multiple off days remaining in the regular season essentially makes it impossible for the team to work in another starter. Manager Kevin Cash has emphasized that they will look to afford Faria multiple innings of work in the upcoming series versus the Red Sox, but that those opportunities will come out of the bullpen.
