  • Rays' Zach Eflin: Expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that he expects Eflin (back) to be sidelined for 2-to-4 week, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Eflin landed on the 15-day injured list Monday with a lower-back injury which he felt crop up toward the end of his last start. The right-hander said it feels similar to an injury which cost him two weeks last season. While the hope is that the absence will be similar in length this time around, his manager has allowed for the possibility for it to be a bit longer.

  • Rays' Manuel Rodriguez: Sent down to minors

    The Rays optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Activated from injured list

    The Rays activated Lowe (oblique) from the 10-day injured list Monday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Lowe had his return from an oblique strain delayed when he had a little setback, but he returned to action on his rehab assignment in recent days and now appears back to 100 percent. He had a .600 OPS with one home run in eight games before getting hurt and will regain his role as Tampa Bay's regular second baseman against right-handers.

  • Rays' Zach Eflin: Placed on IL with back injury

    The Rays placed Eflin on the 15-day injured list Monday, retroactive to May 19, with lower-back inflammation, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Eflin last pitched Saturday in Toronto, allowing four runs over six innings. It's not clear whether he developed the injury during that outing or another time, but either way he will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks. Ryan Pepiot (leg) is expected back from the IL this week and can slide into Eflin's rotation spot.

  • Rays' Chris Devenski: Building up length

    Devenski (knee) threw two innings and allowed three earned runs on four hits while striking out five in a rehab appearance with Triple-A Durham on Sunday.

    Sunday's outing marked Devenski's second rehab appearance in three days. Per MLB.com, the Rays plan to bring him back as a long reliever, so it's possible that he makes some additional appearances with Durham to continue to build up his workload. Devenski is expected to return before the close of May.

  • Rays' Jonny DeLuca: Showing off speed

    DeLuca went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a stolen base Sunday against the Blue Jays.

    DeLuca started his third straight game, two of which have come in center field in place of Jose Siri. He made the case to maintain consistent playing time over the Rays' weekend series, homering on Saturday while also collecting two steals across the three games. For now, he appears to be in a rotation for two outfield spots with Siri and Josh Lowe, but DeLuca could ultimately overtake Siri if his defense proves to be good enough in center field.

  • Rays' Isaac Paredes: Hits homer No. 9

    Paredes went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Paredes was the only source of offense for the Rays, delivering a two-run homer off Zach Pop in the top of the ninth inning. The third baseman has notched a hit in seven straight starts, batting 11-for-28 (.392) with six RBI during that stretch.

  • Rays' Aaron Civale: Takes another loss

    Civale (2-4) took the loss Sunday against the Blue Jays, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and four walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out three.

    Civale allowed five or more runs for the fourth time this season and yielded a solo home run to Daniel Vogelbach in the second inning. During his last six starts, Civale is 0-3 with an 8.48 ERA and a 26:12 K:BB across 32.2 innings. He's tentatively scheduled for a start during a three-game home series against the Royals next weekend.

  • Rays' Jose Siri: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Siri is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

  • Rays' Amed Rosario: Heading to bench Sunday

    Rosario is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Toronto.

  • Rays' Ryan Pepiot: Successful bullpen session

    Pepiot (leg) threw a three-inning bullpen session ahead of Friday's game against the Blue Jays, MLB.com reports.

    Pepiot continues to make progress toward a return, as he's now thrown three successful bullpen sessions. His activation could come as soon as the Rays' upcoming series against the Red Sox, though no final decision has been reached.

  • Rays' Colin Poche: Return date unclear

    There is no clear timeline for Poche (back) to be activated from the injured list, MLB.com reports.

    Poche has received a pair of cortisone shots to relieve his pain and has been able to resume some baseball activity. However, his ramp-up has remained slow, making it unclear when he may be able to return.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: Reaches base five times

    Diaz went 3-for-3 with two walks and a run scored Saturday against the Blue Jays.

    Diaz has gotten on track at the plate across the last two weeks, with Saturday's performance marking his eighth multi-hit performance across his last 15 games. He's gone 23-for-63 with 12 RBI and 10 runs scored, also chipping in a pair of home runs. Overall, Diaz owns a 106 wRC+ but just a .097 ISO across 206 plate appearances for the season.

  • Rays' Jonny DeLuca: Leads comeback win

    DeLuca went 1-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jays.

    After drawing a walk and coming around to score in the sixth inning as part of a three-run rally that got the Rays on the board, DeLuca turned on a 97.3 mph fastball from Nate Pearson in the eighth inning and launched it over the left-field fence for the game-winning hit. DeLuca has begun to see his playing time slip as Tampa Bay's roster has gotten healthier, but through 15 games this season he still sports a .300/.404/.550 slash line with two homers, three steals, six runs and 12 RBI.

  • Rays' Garrett Cleavinger: Notches third save

    Cleavinger struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his third save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Blue Jays.

    Pete Fairbanks had pitched three of the prior four days and Jason Adam worked the eighth inning Saturday to collect his 10th hold, so closing duties fell to Cleavinger. The southpaw didn't disappoint, firing 11 of 14 pitches for strikes as he dispatched Toronto's 8-9-1 hitters. Cleavinger is the top lefty in the Tampa Bay bullpen, which will likely lead to other save chances as matchups dictate, but Fairbanks remains the primary high-leverage option for manager Kevin Cash. Through 18.2 innings this season, Cleavinger sports a 1.45 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 29:12 K:BB.

  • Rays' Zach Eflin: Escapes with no-decision Saturday

    Eflin came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jays, giving up four runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    After keeping Toronto hitters in check the first time through the order, Eflin saw the wheels come off in the fourth and fifth innings, as he put the Rays in a 4-0 hole that they eventually climbed out of. The right-hander managed to keep the ball in the yard, snapping a streak of four straight starts in which he'd served up a homer. Eflin will take a 4.12 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and stellar 44:4 K:BB through 59 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home next weekend against the Royals.
