Rays' Ryan Yarbrough: Strong showing in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yarbrough (1-1) compiled five strikeouts while allowing an earned run on two hits and two walks over three innings in Wednesday's 8-3 Grapefruit League loss to the Red Sox.

Yarbrough's path to a potential Opening Day roster spot goes through the bullpen, but his strong effort in a starting capacity certainly didn't hurt his cause. The towering lefty would give manager Kevin Cash an intriguing option against same-handed hitters, and the Rays skipper has particularly taken note of Yarbrough's confidence and consistent location, Bill Chastain of reports. "What he did last year in Triple-A is a big part of it," Cash said. "Strike-throwing ability. He comes in there and doesn't really seem to be affected by the environment, who's hitting. He goes with his game plan. He attacks with his game plan. As much as anybody, he might be our best strike-thrower."

Rays' Mallex Smith: In Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (hamstring) will play left field and bat leadoff against Toronto on Thursday, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Smith was able to compete in a minor-league game Tuesday after battling a hamstring issue for the past week. He didn't experience any problems during that outing and manager Kevin Cash is confident that Smith will be at 100 percent prior to Opening Day.

Rays' Curt Casali: Returns to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casali agreed to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training with the Rays on Wednesday, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

Casali is expected to join the team's camp Thursday. The catcher was recently released by the Rangers on Wednesday, marking the third different organization to release the 29-year-old this offseason, including Tampa Bay in November. Casali appeared in just nine big-league games for the team in 2017, and will be utilized in a similar capacity this season with Wilson Ramos and Jesus Sucre on the big-league roster.

Rays' Alex Colome: Three-out closer role on tap in '18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays plan to use Colome, who led the American League with six saves of four or more outs last season, as a traditional ninth-inning closer in 2018, Bill Chastain of reports.

On multiple occasions last season, manager Kevin Cash called upon Colome to bail the team out of some tight eighth-inning scenarios, but he wants to avoid deploying that strategy as much as possible in 2018. Cash acknowledges that it probably "wasn't fair" to the right-hander to take on the extra workload, although he does leave open the possibility of the occasional four-out save opportunity for the 29-year-old if absolutely necessary. Even with the occasional extra responsibility last season, Colome was able to notch 47 saves in 53 chances, becoming the first reliever in franchise history to pace the majors in that category. He's had limited work this spring, and the fact that he's yet to throw back-to-back games in Grapefruit League play doesn't concern him much. "We wait for the season to get closer to throw back to back, we'll see," said Colome, stressing the fact that a long season awaits. "I just try to do the same job I did last year. Give it all I have, 100 percent, and see what happens."

Rays' Chris Archer: Final spring start scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Archer's final start of spring will be on a back field at the Charlotte Sports Complex on Friday, Bill Chastain of reports.

Archer was brilliant Sunday against the Tigers, and as it turns out, that start will mark the final time he faces major-league hitters in spring training. The hard-throwing right-hander and Opening Day starter will throw to minor leaguers with Wilson Ramos behind the dish on Friday. Seven innings or 105 pitches -- whichever comes first -- will serve as the benchmark for Archer, who'd previously expressed a desire to at least hit the century mark in pitch count before taking the mound to start the regular season.
