Feyereisen (shoulder) underwent an MRI on Thursday that revealed no structural damage to his shoulder, though he is dealing with some biceps tendinitis, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
The right-hander landed on the injured list Wednesday with right shoulder discomfort, but his shoulder actually checked out fine. Feyereisen is expected to be sidelined beyond the 10-day minimum, though he should not face an extended absence.
Tampa Bay placed Feyereisen on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with right shoulder discomfort, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
The Rays summoned Chris Mazza from Triple-A Durham to replace Feyereisen in the bullpen and on the 26-man active roster. Since being acquired from the Brewers on May 21, Feyereisen has stepped in as a key piece in the late innings for the Rays, compiling a 2.42 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, four wins, three saves and three holds over 21 appearances. According to Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE, Feyereisen said he will undergo an MRI later Wednesday, which should provide a better indication of his timeline for a return.
Feyereisen owns a 3-1 record, 1.35 ERA and three holds across the 13.1 innings covering his 13 appearances since June 1.
The 28-year-old has been yet another productive bullpen find for manager Kevin Cash, with Feyereisen progressively working himself into higher-leverage assignments with his consistently effective work since arriving from the Brewers in the Willy Adames trade May 21. Feyereisen even has three saves (six chances) with Tampa and is holding either handedness of hitter to sub-.200 BAAs, with the one lingering concern being significant control issues that have led to a 5.1 BB/9 across 38.2 total innings this season.
Feyereisen (4-3) walked one and did not allow a hit over one inning of relief to earn the win in Thursday's 1-0 victory over Boston.
Feyereisen pitched a tidy ninth inning of a scoreless tie, working around a Rafael Devers walk to set down Xander Bogaerts, Hunter Renfroe and Enrique Hernandez. Feyereisen has allowed just one unearned run over 9.2 innings during the month of June, albeit with an underwhelming 8:9 K:BB. He hasn't had a save opportunity since May 31 but still remains squarely in the late-inning picture for the Rays.
Feyereisen (3-2) picked up the win Monday, striking out two over two perfect innings of relief in a 5-2 victory over the White Sox.
An early exit for Tyler Glasnow (elbow) put the win up for grabs, and Feyereisen was judged to be the most effective of Tampa Bay's relievers by the official scorer after shutting down Chicago in the sixth and seventh frames. The 28-year-old has yet to see a save opportunity in June, but he's racked up two wins and two holds without allowing a run in 5.2 innings despite a shaky 5:8 K:BB.
Feyereisen recorded his first hold in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday, allowing no hits but issuing three walks over one-third of an inning.
Feyereisen had an extremely labor-intensive sub-one-inning outing, getting only 12 of 26 pitches into the strike zone while creating a heap of trouble that Ryan Thompson was able to subsequently wiggle out of. The 28-year-old is working on a five-appearance scoreless streak and sports an outstanding 1.04 ERA, but his 5.8 BB/9 across 28 innings remains an albatross.
Feyereisen (2-2) earned the win in relief Sunday against the Rangers after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings, walking two and fanning two.
Feyereisen compiled his fourth straight scoreless appearance and continues to pitch at a high level even when he's called upon for duty in non-save situations. The right-hander owns a 2.60 ERA on the season and continues to look comfortable in high-leverage situations, so he'll remain a key piece of the Rays' bullpen going forward.
Feyereisen gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his third save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Yankees.
A Rougned Odor double with two outs made things a bit interesting, but Feyereisen then struck out Miguel Andujar to end the threat. The right-hander has a win, save or blown save in all five of his appearances since joining Tampa Bay, and even if he doesn't completely usurp Diego Castillo in the ninth inning for the Rays, Feyereisen seems very comfortable in a high-leverage role.
Feyereisen earned the save during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rays by recording one strikeout and not allowing a baserunner during the ninth inning.
Diego Castillo tossed a scoreless eighth inning to line up for the victory, and Feyereisen closed the door in the ninth to nab his second save since being acquired by the Rays last week. Manager Kevin Cash will mix-and-match his options for saves -- four different relievers have recorded multiple saves this season -- and Feyereisen has quickly established himself as a trusted option for his new team. Castillo should be looked at as the primary closer, but Feyereisen is in the mix along with Pete Fairbanks, Jeffrey Springs and Andrew Kittredge.
Feyereisen (1-2) allowed one earned run on one hit and struck out one to earn the win Wednesday against the Royals.
Feyereisen entered the game in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead, but he promptly allowed a leadoff home run that tied the score. The Rays stuck with him, and he went on to retire the next six batters he faced to earn the win. It was the second time the Rays have used Feyereisen in a save situation since he was acquired May 21, though Diego Castillo still figures to work as the primary closer for the time being.
Feyereisen earned the save Sunday against the Blue Jays after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, giving up a hit and fanning two.
Feyereisen had gone 0-for-2 in save opportunities this season, though both came when he was still a member of the Brewers. The Rays have a well-earned reputation for getting the most out of previously unheralded pitchers and Feyereisen has responded well since getting traded last week, as he has tossed two scoreless innings with three strikeouts after changing teams.
Feyereisen and Drew Rasmussen were traded from the Brewers to the Rays on Friday in exchange for Willy Adames and Trevor Richards, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The Rays have a well-earned reputation for getting the most out of previously unheralded pitchers, so it's possible they see something in Feyereisen, but the 28-year-old hasn't shown much in 28.2 career major-league innings despite posting a 94:31 K:BB through 61.1 IP at Triple-A in 2019. His 4.08 ERA in the bigs is decent enough, but comes with a 5.32 FIP and 5.02 xFIP, as he's combined a merely average 23.7 percent strikeout rate with a poor 14.0 percent walk rate.
Feyereisen allowed two earned runs in an inning of relief and took the loss Wednesday as the Brewers fell to the Royals.
Feyereisen did not give up an earned run over his first 17 appearances of the season, but he allowed at least one earned run -- and seven runs in all -- in three of his last four trips to the mound. He remains in the third spot in the Brewers' bullpen for the time being, but he's going to have to get back on track in order to hang onto it.
Feyereisen tossed a scoreless seventh inning and picked up a hold in his third consecutive appearance in Saturday's victory over the Cubs.
Feyereisen has not allowed an earned run in 11 appearances this season, and his strong start has helped him secure a key role in the Brewers' bullpen, allowing him to pick up a hold in three of the club's last four wins. He's still not in a very fantasy-friendly role with Josh Hader and Devin Williams ahead of him on the depth chart, but he is presumably in position to get a save opportunity should both fellow relievers be unavailable in a given game.
Feyereisen (0-1) allowed an unearned run on a hit and walk with one strikeout in one inning Sunday versus the Pirates. He took the extra-inning loss.
Feyereisen allowed a leadoff double by Colin Moran that scored Bryan Reynolds in the 10th inning. The 28-year-old Feyereisen has yet to allow an earned run this season -- both runs against him in eight appearances have come unearned. He has added seven strikeouts and a hold across eight innings. The right-hander is likely to continue in mainly low-leverage assignments.
Feyereisen tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Saturday's victory over the Cardinals. He struck out two batters and did not allow a baserunner.
Feyereisen gave up an unearned run on a hit and two walks in the fourth of his five appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen, but he allowed one walk and nothing else in his other four outings to date. Feyereisen is not working in a fantasy-friendly role, but he has solidified his hold on a roster spot.
Feyereisen was informed Wednesday that he will be included in the Brewers' Opening Day bullpen, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Feyereisen earned his spot after giving up just one hit (a solo home run) while posting a 17:2 K:BB in 9.1 innings this spring. Josh Hader is Milwaukee's closer and reigning NL Rookie of the Year and Devin Williams is locked in as the top setup man, but the bullpen pecking order is fairly unsettled beyond the top two options. If Feyereisen is able to carry over his form from the spring into the regular season, he could emerge as a key cog in the bridge to Williams and Hader.
Feyereisen tossed his fourth perfect inning of the spring in Friday's exhibition game against the Cubs.
Feyereisen broke camp with a spot in the Brewers' bullpen last year, and he is well on his way to doing the same in 2021, allowing zero runners to reach base and punching out seven batters over his first four appearances this spring.
Feyereisen was returned to the Brewers' alternate training site Saturday.
Feyereisen served as the 29th man in Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals and tossed one clean inning during the twin bill. The right-hander posted a 5.79 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 9.1 innings during his first taste of major-league action this year.
Feyereisen was recalled from the alternate training site for Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
The 27-year-old was last with the big-league club in mid-September and will serve as the 29th man for Friday's twin bill. Feyereisen has appeared in five games and given up six runs on four hits with a 7:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings this season.
