  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Day off Wednesday

    Walls is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Walls had a rare big night offensively in Tuesday's 11-3 win over Seattle, going 3-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored. He'll begin Wednesday's game on the bench, enabling Jose Caballero to pick up a start at shortstop.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Most productive game of season

    Walls went 3-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Mariners.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Out of Thursday's lineup

    Walls is out of the lineup for Thursday's contest in Minnesota, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Walls started six of eight games at shortstop after returning from the injured list June 7 but has now been in the lineup just once over the last five tilts, though he was battling an illness for some of that time. Jose Caballero will cover shortstop Thursday in Walls' stead.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Returning to lineup

    Walls (illness) will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Wednesday's game versus the Twins.

    Walls was unavailable for a few days due to an illness, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go Wednesday. He's started at shortstop in six of 11 games since returning from the injured list June 7.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Walls (illness) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Minnesota.

    It's not clear whether Walls remains under the weather or if the Rays had planned to start Jose Caballero at shortstop in this one regardless. Walls has been the club's primary shortstop since coming off the injured list earlier this month.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Battling illness

    Walls isn't available for Sunday's game against Atlanta due to an illness, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    The switch-hitting Walls' bout with the illness might help explain why he's out of the lineup Sunday against a right-hander (Hurston Waldrep) for the second day in a row. Jose Caballero -- who had been battling an illness of his own lately -- was scheduled to start at shortstop Sunday in Walls' place, but he was scratched after experiencing left calf tightness leading up to opening pitch. Amed Rosario is now set to operate as the Rays' shortstop in the series finale in Atlanta.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Sitting in second straight game

    Walls is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    The switch-hitting Walls is sitting against a right-handed starting pitcher (Hurston Waldrep) for the second day in a row, perhaps hinting that he hasn't quite locked down an everyday role at shortstop since his return from the injured list June 7. Walls had started in six of the Rays' ensuing eight games following his reinstatement, but he went just 2-for-18 with three walks against 10 strikeouts during that stretch. Jose Caballero (calf) and Amed Rosario look to be Walls' main threats for playing time at shortstop.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Sitting Saturday

    Walls is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest against Atlanta.

    Walls will take a seat after he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's series opener. Amed Rosario will draw the start at shortstop and bat seventh versus Atlanta.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Swipes first bag

    Walls went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Walls has started five of six games since being activated from the injured list, though he's collected just two hits in 14 at-bats. Positively, he stole his first base of the season Wednesday, suggesting he'll still be willing to run even after returning from a serious hip injury.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Not in Monday's lineup

    Walls is out of the lineup for Monday's contest against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Walls started at shortstop in each of the Rays' three games over the weekend following his activation from the 60-day injured list, but he will begin Monday's contest on the bench. Jose Caballero -- who had been the everyday shortstop prior to Walls' return -- will occupy the position Monday.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Two hits in return

    Walls went 2-for-4 on Friday against the Orioles.

    Walls made his season debut after missing the first two months while recovering from hip surgery. He hit seventh in the order and started at shortstop, shifting Jose Caballero to second base and Brandon Lowe to the bench with lefty Cole Irvin on the mound for the O's. It's unclear whether Walls will be able to earn much playing time against right-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Activated from 60-day IL

    The Rays activated Walls (hip) from the 60-day injured list Friday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Walls has been out all season following offseason hip surgery and had his recovery delayed due to inflammation in the hip. However, he recently got back up to speed during a five-game rehab stint with Triple-A Durham, going 8-for-21 at the plate. Walls could take some playing time away from Jose Caballero at shortstop while working in a utility role.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Headed to Durham

    Walls (hip) will have his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

    Walls has been playing in the Florida Complex League for the last week and went 2-for-17 with one home run, two walks and two strikeouts across five games. He was able to play entire games at shortstop and will now move up levels in what should be a final stint in his rehab before being activated from the injured list.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Starting rehab assignment

    The Rays assigned Walls (hip) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    After developing inflammation in his surgically repaired right hip earlier this spring, Walls was shut down from activity for a bit, but he's progressed to the point that he's ready to test himself in a game setting. The infielder will eventually move up to a higher affiliate, but he'll likely be looking at a lengthy rehab assignment since he's been on the injured list all season. Walls will probably be in store for a role as a utility infielder once he's activated.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Cleared for activity

    Walls (hip) reported to the Rays' spring training facility in Port Charlotte, Fla. earlier this week and will go through workouts for the next 10-to-14 days before beginning a rehab assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    According to Topkin, Walls will be going through a modified version of his own spring training while he builds up stamina and stacks up at-bats as he works his way back from the surgery he required last October to address a labral tear in his right hip. The Rays opted to shut Walls down in late April for two weeks after he experienced renewed inflammation in his hip, and the 27-year-old seemingly responded well to the extra time off. Since he's been on the injured list all season, Walls will presumably be in store for an extended minor-league rehab assignment, making it unlikely that he's activated before the end of May. Whenever he's ready to go, Walls could threaten Jose Caballero for everyday duties at shortstop.

  • 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.
