  • Rays' Jose Siri: Out of Tuesday's lineup

    Siri is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Tigers.

    Siri returned to action Monday after not starting two of the previous three contests due to kidney stones, but he will be back on the bench to begin Tuesday's proceedings. Randy Arozarena will shift over to center field and Richie Palacios and Amed Rosario will handle the corner outfield spots.

  • Rays' Mason Auer: Back from wrist injury

    Auer (wrist) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list at Double-A Montgomery on Tuesday, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

    The 23-year-old landed on the shelf in early April with a wrist injury, but he's now healthy and back on Montgomery's active roster. Auer struggled at the affiliate last season with a .205/.292/.349 slash line and 35.9 percent strikeout rate in 123 games.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Takes modest step toward return

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Lowe (oblique) has started swinging a bat and fielding ground balls, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Lowe landed on the injured list April 12 with a right oblique strain but doesn't appear close to being activated, despite having been able to take part in some baseball activities. Curtis Mead and Amed Rosario will likely continue to share work at second base in Lowe's absence.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Set for rehab assignment

    Bradley (pectoral) is expected to report to Triple-A Durham later this week to begin a rehab assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Bradley threw 62 pitches across four innings in an extended spring training Monday. He emerged from the outing without issue and is now likely set for a couple of rehab appearances before being activated from the injured list. He's been on the shelf all season while recovering from a right pectoral strain suffered late in spring training.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Smacks second homer

    Caballero went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Tigers.

    Caballero has made his mark with seven stolen bases across his first 22 games this season. However, he swatted his second homer of the campaign against Shelby Miller in the eighth inning, and he now has an extra-base hit in each of his last three games. Caballero has a clear path to playing time for the foreseeable future, as Taylor Walls (hip) has been shut down from baseball activities and is ineligible to return from the injured list until late May.

  • Rays' Zack Littell: Yields five runs in loss

    Littell (1-1) took the loss Monday against the Tigers, allowing five runs on nine hits and no walks over six innings. He struck out seven.

    Littell allowed a solo homer to Mark Canha on the third pitch of his start Monday and never seemed to recover. Despite surrendering five runs, Littell managed to generate 15 whiffs and match his season high in strikeouts with seven. The 28-year-old starter sports a 3.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 29:5 K:BB over 27 innings. His next start is scheduled against the White Sox on the road.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Throwing in extended spring game

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Baz (elbow/oblique) will soon throw two innings in an extended spring training game, Evan Closky of 10 Tampa Bay reports.

    Baz has already completed his rehab for the Tommy John procedure he underwent Sept. 28, 2022, but the right-hander wasn't available to pitch at any point in spring training after tending to a pair of oblique injuries. The Rays haven't shifted Baz to the 60-day injured list at this point in the season, but it would still be a surprise if he's ready to make his 2024 debut before late May. A timetable for his return remains up in the air and won't be clear until he heads out on what will likely be an extended minor-league rehab assignment.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Shut down for 10-to-14 days

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Walls will be shut down from baseball activities for 10-to-14 days due to inflammation in his surgically repaired right hip, Evan Closky of 10 Tampa Bay reports.

    Walls was shifted to the 60-day injured list over the weekend after suffering a setback in his recovery and won't be eligible for activation until late May.

  • Rays' Jonny DeLuca: Could be ready for rehab games soon

    Manager Kevin Cash said Monday that DeLuca (hand) could be ready to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham later this week, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports.

    Reports last week suggested that DeLuca was still experiencing soreness in his fractured lower right hand, but he's evidently made improvements since then. DeLuca hasn't played in a game since March 10, so he'll likely be in line for an extended rehab assignment figures to take a little while. Once he's ready to return from the 10-day injured list, he could be a mainstay in the Rays outfield against left-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Rehab assignment coming soon

    Manager Kevin Cash said Aranda (finger) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham later this week, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports.

    Aranda had the pins removed from his surgically repaired right ring finger a week ago, and he looks to be nearing a return to game action. The 25-year-old has been sidelined for the past month, so he'll need a good number of rehab at-bats before being activated from the 10-day injured list. Aranda had been in line to serve as the Rays' primary designated hitter against right-handed pitching before getting hurt.

  • Rays' Ben Rortvedt: Resting against lefty

    Rortvedt is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers.

    The lefty-hitting Rortvedt will head to the bench Monday with southpaw Tarik Skubal toeing the rubber for the Tigers. The Rays will go with the righty-hitting Rene Pinto behind the dish.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Sitting against lefty

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers.

    The lefty-hitting Palacios will exit the lineup with southpaw Tarik Skubal on the mound for Detroit, enabling Amed Rosario to get another turn as the Rays' starting right fielder. Palacios and Rosario have largely been deployed in a platoon this season, but the Rays have been making more of an effort to get Rosario regular at-bats against right-handed pitching while he's been swinging a hot bat of late. For his part, Palacios has done well to ward off Rosario thus far, as he enters Monday's contest with a .304/.429/.478 slash line across 56 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Jose Siri: Returns to lineup Monday

    Siri (illness) will start in center field and bat eighth in Monday's game versus the White Sox.

    Siri didn't start two of the previous three contests due to kidney stones, but his presence in the lineup Monday suggests that the medical issue has been resolved. The 27-year-old outfielder returns to action Monday having gone just 1-for-23 with 12 strikeouts over his last seven games.

  • Rays' Pete Fairbanks: Lands on IL with nerve issue

    The Rays placed Fairbanks on the 15-day injured list Monday with a nerve-related issue, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The Rays haven't provided any further details regarding the injury at this time, but it would appear unrelated to the stomach issue that had idled Fairbanks over the weekend. A timetable for the reliever's return could become clearer in the coming days as more is known about his condition. Jason Adam should be first in line for saves in the Rays bullpen sans Fairbanks, though it's possible manager Kevin Cash uses more of a committee approach to the ninth inning.

  • Rays' Kevin Kelly: Back with big club

    The Rays recalled Kelly from Triple-A Durham on Monday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Kelly had been optioned to Durham on Thursday, but he'll be eligible to return to the Rays less than a week later after Tampa Bay placed closer Pete Fairbanks (nerve-related condition) on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Though the loss of Fairbanks creates a vacancy at the back end of the bullpen, Kelly is more likely to work in the middle innings during his time with the big club. Kelly has previously made four relief appearances for Tampa Bay this season, giving up four earned runs on six hits and one walk over 4.2 innings.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Extended spring game on tap

    Bradley (pectoral) is expected to pitch four innings in an extended spring training game early this week before potentially beginning a minor-league rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.

    After covering three innings in a simulated game last Wednesday, Bradley appears to have recovered from the right pectoral strain that forced him to the injured list March 26, but he still needs time to rebuild his stamina and increase his pitch count following a month-long layoff to begin the season. A target date for his season debut with the Rays should come into focus once he heads out on a rehab assignment, but he tentatively looks on track to return from the 15-day IL at some point in the first or second week of May.

  • Rays' Chris Devenski: Roughed up in latest appearance

    Devenski (0-1) surrendered five unearned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning of relief in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

    Though he lowered his season-long ERA to 7.36, Devenski was far from sharp Friday and was dealt his first loss of the campaign. While entering the game in the bottom of the seventh inning with the Rays clinging to a 1-0 lead, Devenski struck out Gleyber Torres to begin the frame before Alex Verdugo reached first base on a Curtis Mead fielding error. Devenski proceeded to walk the next batter before another fielding error allowed the tying run to score. The right-hander then gave up a tie-breaking single followed by a three-run home run to Juan Soto that proved to be all the support the Yankees pitching staff would need on the night. The pair of errors certainly didn't help Devenski, but he's largely been ineffective as a multi-inning reliever for Tampa Bay this season and doesn't appear poised to garner many high-leverage opportunities at any point in the near future.
