Player Outlook
Did anyone have Luke Raley stealing more bases in 2023 than Ozzie Albies, Jeremy Pena, or Adolis Garcia? Yea, that really happened. Not bad for a player who was out of options coming into camp and was nearly cut at the end of camp. Raley refused to let that happen, as he continued to hit becoming a more nimble version of Ji-Man Choi for the Rays as someone who could come in and generate offense against righties (133 wRC+, 17 homers) and play both first base and a corner outfield position. Raley is built like a tight end and is yet deceptively quick which is why the club permitted him to attempt 17 steals last season. He does have voluminous swing and miss in his game but is also quite capable of barreling up mistakes to all fields. His role in 2024 should be more of the same but the swing and miss in his game opens the door to more volatility in his outcomes than other players. Set expectations around 375-400 plate appearances, which takes him off mixed league draft plans.

  • Mariners' Luke Raley: Stuck in backup role

    Raley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Guardians. After being acquired from the Rays in January, the lefty-hitting Raley looked to be a candidate to open the season in a strong-side platoon role, but a poor spring resulted in him falling behind Dominic Canzone and Mitch Haniger in the competition for regular starts versus righties out of the corner outfield. Though Canzone is on the bench Wednesday, Raley will be riding pine along with him while the Guardians bring southpaw Logan Allen to the hill.

  • Mariners' Luke Raley: Comes to life in spring finale

    Raley went 2-for-3 with a three-run double and a triple in a Cactus League tie with the Cubs on Sunday. Raley's acquisition in the early-January Jose Caballero trade to the Rays was lauded at the time, given the 29-year-old's positional versatility and the fact he was coming off the best season of his career at the plate in 2023. However, an utterly forgettable start to Cactus League play that saw Raley go 1-for-23 over his first 10 exhibitions was the source of plenty of frustration. Nevertheless, Raley's bat came around over the latter portion of the Mariners' spring training slate, as he finished 6-for-17 with Sunday's two-bagger, triple and three RBI over his last six contests. Jesus Cano of MLB.com reports that Raley is expected to have a key reserve role this season and serve as a left-handed source of power, and he adds that manager Scott Servais never lost confidence in the offseason acquisition despite the early struggles. "He's really strong," Servais said. "You can see it even when he just misses them. He hits them high and he's going to be more consistent. I thought his at-bats were really good today."

  • Mariners' Luke Raley: Scuffling at plate in spring

    Raley is hitting .083 (1-for-12) with an RBI, a stolen base, three walks and five strikeouts across his first six Cactus League games. The January trade acquisition arrived in Seattle following an impressive 2023 in Tampa Bay, but he's had a difficult time replicating that success early in spring training. Raley's early struggles aside, he's expected to operate as the starting right fielder while also serving as the primary backup to Julio Rodriguez in center field, per Daniel Kramer of MLB.com's projected Opening Day roster.

  • Mariners' Luke Raley: Traded to M's

    The Rays traded Raley to the Mariners on Friday in exchange for Jose Caballero, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Raley broke out during his first full season in the majors in 2023, slashing .249/.333/.490 with 19 homers and 49 RBI across 406 plate appearances. Now in Seattle, the 28-year-old will join Julio Rodriguez and the re-acquired Mitch Haniger (back) in the Mariners' outfield, though Raley is also capable of covering first base and serving as the DH. Dylan Moore and Sam Haggerty are the most likely options on the Seattle roster to platoon for Raley against left-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Left off wild-card roster

    Raley (neck) won't be included on the Rays' active roster for their AL Wild Card Series with the Rangers that begins Tuesday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports. Raley was able to take batting practice Monday and seemed to come out of it with no issues, but the Rays have decided to hold him back for at least the first round of the postseason. The 29-year-old, who is dealing with a cervical strain, could rejoin the roster if the Rays advance to the divisional round.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Could be left off WC roster

    Raley (neck) could be left off the Rays' American League Wild Card Series roster, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Working his way back from a cervical strain, Raley took batting practice at Tropicana Field on Monday and felt good. However, he returned from the injury too quickly initially last month and had a setback, so the Rays want to make sure he's fully healthy before activating him. Because of that, it seems likely Raley will be held back until at least the ALDS, should the Rays advance. Raimel Tapia, Osleivis Basabe and Francisco Mejia are options to be included on the Rays' roster if Raley is indeed excluded.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Takes batting practice

    Raley (neck) took batting practice Monday at Tropicana Field, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Raley has been on the shelf for the last couple weeks with a cervical strain but is trying to convince the Rays he's feeling well enough to be carried on their Wild Card Series roster. The 29-year-old hit .247/.337/.497 with 17 home runs in 363 plate appearances against right-handed pitching in 2023 and, if healthy, would figure to see regular action versus righties in the postseason.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Nears swinging workouts

    Raley (neck) is hoping to resume swinging a bat over the weekend, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports. Raley is recovering from a cervical strain and can probably be ruled out for a return in the regular season, but there's a chance he might be ready for the Rays' first postseason series. The 29-year-old had delivered an .824 OPS with 19 homers and 14 steals in 118 games prior to being diagnosed with the injury last week.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Placed on IL

    The Rays placed Raley on the 10-day injured list Friday with a cervical strain, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports. Raley hasn't started a game since colliding with a staff member during batting practice last Saturday, and he reported numbness in his arm following a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday. Raley's move to the injured list is retroactive to Thursday, so he will still be eligible to return for the final game of the season Oct. 1, but the Rays could also keep him on the shelf until the postseason. Top prospect Junior Caminero was selected from Double-A Montgomery to fill Raley's spot on the active roster.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Will miss time with neck issue

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Thursday that Raley will miss some time due to a neck issue, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports. It's not clear yet whether Raley will be placed on the injured list, but at the very least it sounds like he will be unavailable for at least several days. He had been set to receive an MRI after his left arm felt numb during a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday. That the Rays are now calling it a neck issue suggests it could be some sort of nerve problem. It's an injury which stems from a collision Raley was involved in during batting practice last Saturday, and he hasn't made a start since the incident.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Absent from lineup

    Raley (arm) is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports. Raley had been set to undergo an MRI on his left arm after it went numb during a pinch-hitting appearance Wednesday. The results of that exam haven't been revealed, but Raley at the very least will miss his fifth straight start. He was sidelined previously with an undisclosed injury after colliding with a staff member pregame Saturday, although it's not clear whether the two issues are related.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Getting MRI on Thursday

    Raley will get an MRI on his left arm Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Raley said his left arm went numb after a pinch-hit appearance in the seventh inning of Wednesday's game. He hadn't appeared in a game since Saturday when he collided with a team staff member during pregame batting practice, and the Rays believe Raley's recent arm problems are likely a result of the collision. More will be known regarding Raley's status when his MRI results come back Thursday, but fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day until then.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Raley (undisclosed) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. Raley hasn't seen the field since Friday after he collided with a team staff member while catching flyballs ahead of Saturday's contest. The 29-year-old may not have been in the lineup Wednesday regardless of the injury since lefty Reid Detmers is pitching for the Halos.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Remains sidelined Sunday

    Raley (undisclosed) remains absent from the lineup Sunday versus the Orioles. Raley was scratched Saturday following a collision with a staff member during pregame batting practice. There's no word yet as to the exact nature of the injury. Jonathan Aranda will fill the DH role for the Rays on Sunday as Randy Arozarena, Manuel Margot and Josh Lowe start across the outfield.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Idle against southpaw

    Raley is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Twins. Raley will begin this one on the bench for the Rays as the Twins send left-hander Dallas Keuchel to the hill. Josh Lowe will handle center field in a rare start for him versus a southpaw.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Sitting against lefty

    Raley is absent from the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins. Miami is throwing left-hander Jesus Luzardo, and Raley has batted just .222/.243/.389 in 37 plate appearances versus lefties this year. Randy Arozarena, Jose Siri and Vidal Brujan are starting across the outfield while Harold Ramirez takes a turn as the Rays' designated hitter.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Swipes 13th bag

    Raley went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored Saturday against the Yankees. Raley has popped three home runs in his last 10 games and has an outstanding .262 ISO on the season. However, he produced in a different way Saturday by swiping his 13th base of the campaign on 15 attempts. It's been a breakout year for Raley, who should maintain a large-side platoon role at DH for the final five weeks of the regular season.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Goes to bench Wednesday

    Raley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The lefty-hitting Raley will retreat to the bench while the Rockies bring southpaw Austin Gomber to the hill Wednesday. The Rays will roll out a starting outfield of Randy Arozarena, Jose Siri and Josh Lowe from left to right while Harold Ramirez serves as the team's designated hitter.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Legs out inside-the-park homer

    Raley went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-1 victory over the Giants. Raley's 17th home run of the year was certainly his most unusual -- he blasted a Ross Stripling offering 425 feet off the top of the right-field wall before it ricocheted away from the Giants outfielders, giving Raley plenty of time to cruise into home standing up. The homer was Raley's second in his last four games following a 1-for-18 slump over his previous six contests. Overall, his slash line is up to .257/.340/.517 with 49 runs scored, 43 RBI and 12 steals across 288 plate appearances this season.

  • Rays' Luke Raley: Returns to lineup Sunday

    Raley (knee) will start in right field and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Tigers. Raley is back in action after he was on the bench for the Rays' previous two games with a bruised right knee. The fact that the Rays are deploying him in the outfield rather than at designated hitter suggests the team is comfortable with his health heading into a six-game week.
