The Rays optioned Mazza to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mazza will surrender his spot in the Tampa Bay bullpen to Dietrich Enns, whose contract was selected from Durham in a corresponding move. During his multiple stints in the big leagues this season, Mazza has served mostly as a low-leverage reliever. Over 10 appearances, Mazza has coughed up 13 earned runs on 20 hits and seven walks across 19 innings.
Mazza was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Mazza was sent down last week, but he'll now rejoin the major-league club after Pete Fairbanks (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day IL on Thursday. The right-hander has posted a 6.60 ERA in 15 innings this year, but he's tossed 6.1 scoreless innings across his last three appearances.
Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mazza was recalled by the Rays on Wednesday, so his latest stint with the club was short-lived. However, he pitched well in Thursday's contest, throwing 2.2 scoreless innings while striking out three and allowing only one walk. Mazza could be a bullpen piece for the Rays down the stretch, particularly if they are forced to deal with injuries.
Tampa Bay recalled Mazza from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Mazza will add some length to the Tampa Bay bullpen, but his usage will likely be limited to low-leverage or mop-up spots. The 31-year-old right-hander previously made seven appearances for the big club, posting an 8.03 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 12.1 innings.
Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Wednesday's loss to the White Sox, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Mazza was recalled from Triple-A prior to Wednesday's contest and will return there after striking out the only two batters he faced. The 31-year-old has surrendered 11 runs with a 5:4 K:BB across 12.1 innings for Tampa Bay this season.
The Rays recalled Mazza from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Mazza will provide the Rays with another multi-inning option out of the bullpen in the short term after Collin McHugh was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Over his prior six relief outings with Tampa Bay this season, Mazza covered 11.2 innings and allowed 11 earned runs on 16 hits and four walks.
Mazza (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list and optioned to Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Mazza missed just shy of a month with shoulder inflammation. He bounced on and off the big-league roster before suffering the injury, so it's no surprise to see him head to the minors for now.
Mazza (shoulder) is expected to report to Triple-A Durham this week, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Mazza will likely pitch in simulated games in Durham or begin a rehab assignment with the affiliate after his right shoulder checked out fine during his most recent bullpen session. Whenever he's activated from the 10-day injured list, 31-year-old won't necessarily have a spot waiting for him with the big club.
Mazza (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Rays manager Kevin Cash indicated Mazza felt good during the throwing session, so the right-hander should be ready to ramp up for a more extended bullpen session within the next few days, or face hitters in live batting practice. Considering the extent to which he's struggled with the big club this year, Mazza could be optioned to Triple-A Durham upon activation.
Mazza was placed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Mazza was recalled from the Rays' alternate training site Friday and tossed three scoreless innings in the loss to the Blue Jays. However, he apparently sustained a shoulder injury during the contest. It's not yet clear when Mazza will be able to return, but Diego Castillo was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.
Mazza, just recalled from the alternate training site earlier in the day, fired three scoreless innings in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday. He allowed just one hit and did not record a strikeout or issue a walk.
Starter Tyler Glasnow exited after throwing 94 pitches over six innings, and Mazza helped preserve the arms of his bullpen mates by working the final three frames and getting his nine outs on an efficient 34 pitches. The 31-year-old has endured a pair of particularly poor outings this season in which he's given up a combined 10 earned runs, but he's allowed just one earned run in the six innings covering his other four appearances.
Mazza was recalled from the alternate training site Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
The 31-year-old was just sent down Thursday, but he'll quickly rejoin the team with Diego Castillo out while dealing with side effects from the COVID-19 vaccine. Mazza has struggled this season with 11 runs allowed on 15 hits with a 3:4 K:BB across 8.2 innings.
Mazza was optioned to the team's alternate site Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mazza has already shuttled between the alternate site and major-league club this season, and he's tallied 8.2 innings for the Rays. He hasn't been particularly effective, however, as he has an 11.42 ERA and 2.19 WHIP. A corresponding move will be announced by the team Friday.
Mazza was recalled from the taxi squad Sunday.
The 31-year-old was sent down Saturday but will quickly rejoin the big-league club with Collin McHugh (back) landing on the injured list. Mazza has struggled through four appearances this year, giving up 10 runs on 14 hits with a 3:4 K:BB over 7.2 innings.
Mazza was optioned to the Rays' alternate training site Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mazza made four relief appearances for Tampa Bay to begin the season and allowed 10 runs on 14 hits and four walks while striking out three in 7.2 innings. He'll attempt to sort things out at the team's alternate camp after Kevin Kiermaier (quadriceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
Mazza allowed four earned runs on five hits, three walks and a wild pitch over three innings in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. He struck out one.
Mazza has now been banged around significantly in two of his four appearances, as he also surrendered six earned runs over just 2.2 innings during his first trip to the mound against the Red Sox back on April 5. Mazza submitted a pair of scoreless one-inning efforts in between that outing and Wednesday's, but he's clearly less than reliable at the moment. Nevertheless, his ability to work multiple innings could afford him some slack.
Mazza was recalled by the Rays on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mazza was sent to Triple-A Durham ahead of the regular season, but he'll rejoin the major-league bullpen after Chaz Roe (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The right-hander made nine appearances (six starts) for Boston last year and posted a 4.80 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 30 innings.
Mazza was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The 31-year-old was acquired from the Red Sox in February but was unable to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster during spring training. Mazza had a 4.80 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 29:15 K:BB over 30 innings for Boston last season, and he should provide organizational pitching depth for Tampa Bay in 2021.
The Rays acquired Mazza and pitcher Jeffrey Springs from the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for catcher Ronaldo Hernandez and infielder Nick Sogard, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Mazza was one of several starters the pitching-needy Red Sox tried out in 2020, but his results weren't encouraging (4.80 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 29:15 K:BB in 30 innings). Though Boston recently removed the right-hander from its 40-man roster, the Rays apparently saw enough potential in Mazza to bring him aboard. He'll likely be given the change to compete for a starting/primary pitcher role during spring training, though the 31-year-old probably finds himself on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot.
Mazza was designated for assignment Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the newly re-signed Martin Perez. As a 31-year-old with a career 5.05 ERA in a small sample of 46.1 major-league innings, Mazza seems to have a good chance of passing through waivers unclaimed.
