Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Impressive throughout spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks logged five scoreless innings and a 10:3 K:BB across five Grapefruit League appearances before spring training was suspended.

Juan Toribio of notes Fairbanks flashed a fastball that touched as high as 100 mph and an effective complementary breaking pitch during his stellar spring showing. With MLB expanding active rosters to 26 players for the coming season, Toribio notes Fairbanks already had a fighting chance at the 13th and final spot on the staff. However, the combination of his Grapefruit League performance and the possibility rosters are now expanded further would seemingly strengthen Fairbanks' odds of opening 2020 at the big-league level.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Works inning in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks worked one inning in a simulated game Tuesday, throwing 21 pitches, Juan Toribio of reports.

Fairbanks got 14 of his offerings into the strike zone while facing Nate Lowe, Kevan Smith and Daniel Robertson and working with Mike Zunino as his battery mate. The 26-year-old right-hander had a rough go of it in 2019 with both the Rangers (9.35 ERA across eight appearances) and Rays (5.11 ERA in 13 outings), but he'd made a strong case this spring for an Opening Day roster spot with five scoreless, four-hit innings across five appearances and a 10:3 K:BB. With the remainder of Grapefruit League play cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, it remains to be seen if he built a strong enough case to stick on the Opening Day roster.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Records second victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks (2-3) was credited with the win in an extra-innings victory over the Yankees on Tuesday, firing a scoreless 12th inning during which he allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout.

Fairbanks was the last of eight relievers utilized by manager Kevin Cash behind starter Yonny Chirinos, who worked a modest three innings by design. The right-hander has been reliable more often than not in September despite a 5.23 ERA, a figure that belies the fact half of the six earned runs he's surrendered during the month came in one outing.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Records second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks gave up one run (no earned) on two hits and no walks while striking out one through one inning to record his second save in an 8-7 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Fairbanks received the call in the 11th inning with a two-run lead, and he allowed a run after a fielding error but recovered to nail down his second save. The save opportunity came after Emilio Pagan had already pitched two innings, so this is not likely a sign of future save chances. The 25-year-old has a 7.94 ERA with a 1.82 WHIP through 17 games this season.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks (1-3) was charged with the loss in a defeat at the hands of the Dodgers on Tuesday, allowing five runs (three earned) on three hits and a walk over one-third of an inning.

The reliever made life difficult on himself right from the jump by allowing Max Muncy to reach on Fairbanks' own throwing error to lead off the seventh, and he subsequently proceeded to surrender back-to-back doubles that wiped out the 2-2 tie he'd been asked to preserve. Fairbanks yielded one more run himself before getting the hook and was charged with two more after he'd exited, making it the right-hander's worst outing of the season in terms of the hit to his ERA. That figure climbed almost two full runs to 8.44 as a result of the meltdown, and Fairbanks has now allowed seven runs overall in two of his last three trips to the mound.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Notches first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks gave up two hits in a scoreless 11th inning Tuesday to record his first career save in a 5-3 win over the Rangers.

Emilio Pagan and Nick Anderson had both tossed perfect frames to help get the game to the 11th, opening the door for Fairbanks to get his shot at closing things out. The rookie right-hander hasn't given up a run in four September appearances, posting a 5:1 K:BB through 4.1 innings -- he likely won't see another save chance, but Fairbanks could work himself into more high-leverage usage down the stretch if he stays locked in.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Juan Toribio of reports.

Fairbanks makes his return to the big-league club after having been optioned to the Bulls on Aug. 17. The 25-year-old right-hander has generated an ugly 9.31 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across 9.2 innings in the majors this season with the Rangers and Rays, but his triple-digit fastball has led to an eye-popping 70 strikeouts over 43.2 innings across four minor-league stops in 2019.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The 25-year-old allowed one earned run off two hits in one inning Friday but will ultimately return to Triple-A for the time being. Trevor Richards was activated off the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks was promoted from Triple-A Durham prior to Friday's game against the Tigers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays dealt prospect Nick Solak to the Rangers for Fairbanks in mid-July. The hard-throwing righty has struck out 19 in 10.1 innings with the Bulls, and while he may not get any saves over the rest of the season, he has the potential to pitch in some high-leverage situations.

Rays' Peter Fairbanks: Acquired by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks was traded from the Rangers to the Rays on Saturday in exchange for Nick Solak.

Fairbanks reached the majors for the first time this season, struggling to a 9.35 ERA in 8.2 innings of work. He struck out an impressive 36.6 percent of opposing hitters but also walked 17.1 percent, and four of the seven fly balls he's allowed have left the park. The 25-year-old is a live arm who could help the Rays' bullpen at some point if he gets the walks under control, but he'll head to Triple-A Durham for now.

Rangers' Peter Fairbanks: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

Fairbanks spent almost a month with the Rangers, striking out 15 batters in 8.2 innings but also allowing 10 runs (nine earned). Phillips Valdez was recalled to take his spot in the bullpen.

Rangers' Peter Fairbanks: Makes impressive debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks tossed two scoreless innings while striking out three in Sunday's 9-8 loss to the Athletics.

Starter Drew Smyly didn't make it past the third inning, which required a deep bullpen game. Fairbanks, who had his contract purchased Saturday and made his MLB debut, struck out the side in the fifth and retired the side in order in the sixth. The 25-year-old right-hander, who has been through two Tommy John elbow surgeries, does not figure to be an integral part of the bullpen.

Rangers' Peter Fairbanks: Called up by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbanks' contract was selected from Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

Fairbanks hadn't pitched above High-A prior to this season, but he's made a rapid rise to the majors this year. In 23 innings across the three highest levels of the minors in 2019, he owns a 2.35 ERA, a 40.5 percent strikeout rate and a 5.6 percent walk rate. His track record is short, but it's hard to argue with the 25-year-old's numbers. Joe Palumbo was optioned to clear a spot on the 25-man roster, with Nick Gardewine designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
