Rays' John Curtiss: On mound for Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss will be on the hill to start Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday, Juan Toribio of reports.

Curtiss will likely be nothing more than an opener in this contest, as he's recorded no more than eight outs in any of his appearances this season. He's a good bet to pitch well during his brief outing, as he recorded a 1.80 ERA and a 25:3 K:BB in 25 innings this season.

Rays' John Curtiss: Fails to finish inning as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss allowed one run (zero earned) on three hits across two-thirds of an inning Saturday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.

Rays manager Kevin Cash opted to use Curtiss as the team's opener Saturday despite the 27-year-old picking up a save in Friday's series opener. Curtiss allowed consecutive singles to begin the game and was charged with an unearned run after Jean Segura hit a sharp ground ball that forced Yoshi Tsutsugo to make a wild throw to first, which plated a run for the Phillies. The righty owns a 1.80 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 25:3 K:BB across 25 innings.

Rays' John Curtiss: Serving as opener Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Phillies, Juan Toribio of reports.

Curtiss earned the save Friday as he fired one clean inning while striking out three. Despite his ninth-inning role for the series opener, he'll serve as the opener for Saturday's contest. Ryan Yarbrough should serve as the primary pitcher during the game.

Rays' John Curtiss: Clean outing as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss walked one and struck out one in 1.1 scoreless innings during Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Nationals.

The right-hander was effective as Tampa's opener before giving way to Ryan Yarbrough. Curtiss has reeled off nine straight appearances without allowing an earned run, posting a 0.71 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 11.1 innings over that stretch with two wins and a save, but his inconsistent role in the Rays bullpen limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

Rays' John Curtiss: Set to open Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss will serve as the opener Tuesday against the Nationals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old will open for the second time this season, with Ryan Yarbrough following in the bulk role. Curtiss hasn't allowed an earned run over his past 10 innings and has a 1.53 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 18:2 K:BB across 17.2 frames this season.

Rays' John Curtiss: Nabs third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss (3-0) was credited with the win in an extra-inning victory over the Marlins on Sunday, allowing an unearned run on one hit and recording a strikeout over one inning.

Curtiss opened the top of the 10th in typically strong fashion, inducing a groundout from Starling Marte and a lineout from Jesus Aguilar with inning-opening baserunner Lewis Brinson stuck on second base. However, Matt Joyce was subsequently able to bring his teammate home with a clutch two-out single, marking it the first run, albeit unearned, on Curtiss' ledger in the last five appearances. Although the timely hit did give the Marlins a temporary 4-3 advantage, Curtiss garnered his third win of the campaign when Ji-Man Choi and Brandon Lowe were able to bring home a pair of runs for the Rays in the home half of the frame.

Rays' John Curtiss: Riding impressive scoreless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks (2-0) picked up the win in a victory over the Yankees on Wednesday, firing a pair of scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and one walk while recording three strikeouts.

The right-hander has now put together four straight scoreless efforts, a stretch during which he's logged six innings of work and yielded just three hits overall while recording six strikeouts. Curtiss has yet to allow more than one earned run in any of his eight appearances, including one start. The versatile 27-year-old is likely to continue seeing multi-inning relief assignments on occasion for the balance of the regular season.

Rays' John Curtiss: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss picked up his first save in Sunday's 5-4 win over Toronto, allowing no hits and no walks in 1.2 scoreless innings. He did not record a strikeout.

Curtiss has demonstrated great versatility of late, picking up his first career save just three days after serving as the team's opener. The right-hander wasn't able to pick up any strikeouts, but he retired each of the five Jays he faced. With Nick Anderson (forearm) landing on the 10-day injured list earlier Sunday, Curtiss could see more save opportunities moving forward.

Rays' John Curtiss: Allows homer as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss allowed a solo home run, two singles and a walk in 1.1 innings while serving as the opener in Thursday's 10-5 win over the Yankees. He struck out one and did not factor in the decision.

Curtiss's lone run allowed came on a Luke Voit homer in the first. The right-hander retired the first batter he faced in the second, but was pulled after allowing a walk and single in consecutive at-bats. Curtiss, who has an ERA of 3.52, remains an option to open games going forward.

Rays' John Curtiss: Opening Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss will serve as the opener Thursday against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 27-year-old has yet to pitch in the series, but he'll take the mound as the opener for the series finale. Curtiss has a 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 7:0 K:BB through 6.1 innings this season, and he's likely to be followed by Trevor Richards in the bulk role.

Rays' John Curtiss: Could serve as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss was one of the candidates mentioned by manager Kevin Cash to serve as an opener during one of the two weekend games against the Blue Jays in Buffalo, Juan Toribio of reports.

The 27-year-old right-hander has been impressive out of the bullpen through his first two appearances, allowing an earned run on four hits over 4.2 innings while posting a 5:0 K:BB. Curtiss' most recent outing was a 2.2-inning stint against the Red Sox on Tuesday, so his arm should be sufficiently rested to work the 1-to-2 innings Cash has typically asked his openers to cover in the past.

Rays' John Curtiss: Nabs first big-league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss (1-0) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits over 2.2 relief innings in an 8-2 victory over the Red Sox. He struck out one.

Andrew Kittredge (elbow) was the listed opener but only lasted two batters before coming out of the game, and Curtiss was the next man up for the Rays. The 27-year-old then got credit for his first MLB win when Tampa pushed across a couple of early runs against Martin Perez. Curtiss has now tossed 4.2 innings over two appearances since being added to the roster Sunday, finding success with a 1.93 ERA and 5:0 K:BB.

Rays' John Curtiss: Joins big-league bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays selected Curtiss's contract from their alternate training site Sunday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Curtis will assume the 40-man and active roster spot of catcher Kevan Smith, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old has yet to make his 2020 debut, but Curtiss previously made 18 big-league appearances with the Twins and Angels over the last three seasons.

Rays' John Curtiss: Impressing in summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss has been impressive in summer camp and struck out the side during his one inning in Thursday's intrasquad game, Juan Toribio of reports.

The right-hander has been operating high in the zone with an explosive fastball during summer camp, following an impressive Grapefruit League stint during which he fired seven scoreless, two-hit innings. Curtiss was hit hard in two of his first three big-league stints with the Twins, but manager Kevin Cash noted Thursday that he expects the 27-year-old is "going to help us at some point this season, for sure."

Rays' John Curtiss: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss will be a part of the Rays' 60-man player pool this season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Curtiss had been in Rays camp this spring on a minor-league deal. The 27-year-old righty has a 6.75 ERA in 17.1 MLB innings and was not included in the group that will train at Tropicana Field.

Rays' John Curtiss: Signs minor-league deal with Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss signed a minor-league deal with the Rays on Monday which includes an invitation to big-league camp, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Curtiss has thrown 17.1 career big-league innings, struggling to a 6.75 ERA. He spent most of 2019 in Triple-A in the Angels' and Phillies' systems, posting an unimpressive 7.75 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP in 33.2 innings.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curtiss made one appearance for the Angels this season but spent the bulk of the year at the Triple-A level, where he posted a 7.75 ERA and a 1.84 WHIP in 33.2 innings with the Angels' and Phillies' affiliates. He'll be looking for a minor-league deal with a new team in the near future.

Phillies' John Curtiss: Signs MiLB deal with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
