Top Rays News

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Pelted by long balls in fifth frame

    Pepiot (4-4) allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over 4.2 innings in a loss to Atlanta on Saturday.

    Pepiot looked to be on his game with four scoreless innings to begin his outing, but things fell apart for him in the fifth. In that frame, the right-hander gave up three home runs -- all with two out -- to account for five Atlanta runs. It was the first time this season Pepiot has given up three home homers in a game, and the long balls prevented him from finishing five frames for the third time this season. The five runs Pepiot allowed Saturday were the most he's given up in an outing since his season debut against Texas on April 1.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Absent from lineup

    Caballero (illness) is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus Atlanta.

    Caballero was removed from Friday's series opener due to an illness and he'll remain on the bench to start Saturday's contest. Brandon Lowe will draw the start at second base and bat second against Atlanta.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Sitting Saturday

    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' Amed Rosario: Stuck in small-side platoon

    Rosario went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI on Friday against Atlanta.

    With both Brandon Lowe and Taylor Walls back healthy, Rosario has found his playing time coming almost exclusively against lefties. He's hit well in the role, maintaining a .393 average with three RBI and four runs scored across his last 10 games, but he's started only one of the Rays' last six matchups against righties.

  • Rays' Zack Littell: Chased early in loss

    Littell (2-5) yielded seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk over two innings Friday, striking out two and taking a loss against Atlanta.

    Atlanta jumped all over Littell right out of the gate, tallying five runs in the first inning and two more in the second. It was Littell's shortest outing of the year and he saw his ERA jump from 3.63 to 4.24 in the process. Over his last six starts, he's posted a 5.79 ERA in 31.2 frames. Still looking for his first win since May 11, Littell's next start is projected to come in Minnesota.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: Exits with illness

    Caballero was removed from Friday's game against Atlanta due to an illness, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Richie Palacios replaced the 27-year-old infielder at second base during the third inning. Caballero is slashing .241/.333/.483 across 33 plate appearances since the beginning of June and will continue to rest as he fights off his sickness.

  • Rays' Ben Rortvedt: Idle against southpaw

    Rortvedt will take a seat Friday with lefty Chris Sale on the mound for Atlanta. Alex Jackson will bat ninth and catch for Zack Littell.

  • Rays' Josh Lowe: On bench against southpaw

    Lowe is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

    With the Rays facing a left-handed pitcher for the second consecutive night, Lowe will be held out of the starting lineup once again Friday. Jonny DeLuca will draw another start in right field and bat sixth.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Sitting against lefty

    Lowe is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Lowe will dodge a matchup with southpaw Chris Sale on Friday. Instead, Jose Caballero will bat eighth and play second base. Lowe has produced multiple hits in three of his last eight games with a pair of homers during that stretch.

  • Rays' Colin Poche: First hold since return

    Poche didn't allow a baserunner while throwing a scoreless eighth inning to earn a hold Thursday against the Cubs.

    Thursday's appearance marked Poche's fourth outing since being activated from the injured list. He has only two strikeouts while issuing two free passes across four innings in that span, though he has yet to surrender an earned run. Poche will remain in a high-leverage role, but he isn't likely to factor significantly into the saves picture for the Rays, barring an injury to Pete Fairbanks.

  • Rays' Josh Lowe: Key knock as pinch hitter

    Lowe went 1-for-1 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Thursday against the Cubs.

    Lowe began the game on the bench with lefty Justin Steele on the mound but entered as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning. He made an immediate impact with an RBI single and also tallied his first stolen base of the season. Lowe has gone only 2-for-18 since being activated from the injured list June 5 while striking out eight times.

  • Rays' Jeffrey Springs: Two innings with Durham

    Springs (elbow) completed two innings in a rehab outing with Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

    Springs faced the minimum of six batters while giving up only one hit and striking out three. He threw 18 pitches while averaging 92.1 mph with his fastball. Springs is tracking toward a mid-July return and will likely appear in several more games with Durham.

  • Rays' Carson Williams: Dealing with hand injury

    Williams is considered day-to-day after being hit by a pitch in the hand during Wednesday's game with Double-A Montgomery, MLB.com reports.

    X-rays and an MRI came back clean, so it appears as if Williams has avoided serious injury. That's positive news, as he's had an excellent season with Montgomery, maintaining a .928 OPS with 10 home runs and 15 stolen bases across 49 games.

  • Rays' Pete Fairbanks: Earns ninth save

    Fairbanks earned a save against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing one walk in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Entering with a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, Fairbanks walked Michael Busch with one out but induced a game-ending double play to secure the save. Since returning from an arm injury in mid-May, Fairbanks is 6-for-6 in save chances and has not allowed an earned run in 14 innings of work. On the season, he is 9-for-10 in save opportunities with a 3.00 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 23:11 K:BB in 21 innings.

  • Rays' Taj Bradley: Strikes out 11 in win

    Bradley (2-4) earned the win against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing two (unearned) runs on three hits and two walks with 11 strikeouts over seven innings.

    Bradley was dominant other than the fifth inning, when the Cubs scored two unearned runs on back-to-back bunts. This was arguably the best start of Bradley's young career, as he registered 17 swinging strikes on 104 pitches and tied a career-high with 11 strikeouts. While Bradley has been up-and-down in 2024, Thursday's effort showed his immense potential when he has his best stuff. On the season, he owns a 4.23 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 50:12 K:BB in 38.1 innings, and he tentatively lines up to face the Twins next week.
