  • Rays' Jose Siri: Heading to bench Thursday

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

    Siri will exit the starting nine for the first time since July 7 in what looks to be a maintenance day. Jonny DeLuca will pick up the start in center field for Siri, who could probably benefit from a day off after striking out six times in eight at-bats between the first two games of the series in Toronto.

  • Rays' Jose Caballero: On bench in series finale

    Caballero is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Caballero has moved back into a near-everyday role in the Tampa Bay infield since Yandy Diaz (personal) was placed on the restricted list Saturday. Though he'll cede his spot in the lineup to Amed Rosario in the series finale in Toronto, Caballero had started in each of the Rays' previous six contests, going 4-for-22 with a home run, a stolen base, a walk, two RBI and two runs.

  • Rays' Ben Rortvedt: Receiving afternoon off

    Rortvedt is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Rortvedt will get a breather for the day game after he was behind the plate for the Rays in both of the previous two nights. Alex Jackson will start at catcher in the series finale, batting ninth.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Records 17th stolen base

    Palacios went 0-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Palacios has gotten on base six times across 17 plate appearances in four games since the All-Star break. In addition to popping his fifth home run of the season, he also has three stolen bases in that span. Palacios has retained a large-side platoon role in the Rays' outfield and has started 10 of the last 11 games.

  • Rays' Jason Adam: Takes loss against Jays

    Adam (4-2) allowed four earned runs (two earned) on two walks and two hits while striking out one to take the loss Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Adam entered the game in the eighth inning with the score tied at 2-2. He retired two of the first three batters he faced but let the next three hitters reach base, all of whom came around to score on a pair of fielding miscues by the Rays. Adam has allowed five earned runs across his last three innings, but he still has an excellent 2.54 ERA and 0.91 WHIP across 46 frames on the campaign.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Productive in loss

    Arozarena went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, one RBI, a stolen base and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Arozarena has just three multi-hit efforts in July, but he's batting a hearty .288 with 11 extra-base hits, eight RBI and six steals over 18 contests this month. He seems to have more of a green light on the basepaths -- he stole a modest 10 bases over the first three months of the season and is now 16-for-23 on steals this year. The outfielder is still sporting a mediocre .213/.319/.398 slash line through 99 contests overall, but he's trending in the right direction.

  • Rays' Zach Eflin: Yields two runs in no-decision

    Eflin allowed two runs on six hits and struck out four without walking a batter over 5.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Eflin had some trouble early on, allowing an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the third, both to Vladimir Guerrero. After that, Eflin settled in, and the Rays were able to get him off the hook by the time he exited the contest. The right-hander has allowed two or fewer runs in just three of his last seven outings as he contends with a tough part of the schedule. He's now at a 4.09 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 87:13 K:BB through 110 innings over 19 starts on the year. Eflin is projected for a favorable home matchup versus the Marlins next week.

  • Rays' Ian Seymour: Climbs to Triple-A

    Seymour was promoted from Double-A Montgomery to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday and allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three in five innings for the Bulls.

    The 25-year-old southpaw actually made two starts at Triple-A late in 2021 just to keep pitching after the High-A season wrapped up. Since then he's undergone Tommy John surgery and this is his first full season since the procedure. Seymour's fastball velocity isn't great (sits in the low-90s), but he's got a plus changeup and a quality slider. He logged a 2.36 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 91.1 innings at Double-A prior to his promotion.

  • Rays' Brandon Lowe: Power surge continues

    Lowe went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Lowe popped his 11th home run of the season, 10 of which have come since the beginning of June. The start to his season was erased by an oblique injury, but he's maintained a .268 average with 10 home runs, 22 RBI and 21 runs scored across his last 35 games.

  • Rays' Yandy Diaz: No timeline to return

    Manager Kevin Cash said he had no update on Diaz's (personal) status prior to Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, MLB.com reports.

    Diaz has been away from the Rays since the All-Star break and was officially placed on the restricted list Saturday. Cash confirmed that Diaz's placement on the restricted list isn't the result of any team-related decision, as the veteran infielder is tending to a personal family matter. Diaz remains in daily communication with the team.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Swipes 15th bag

    Arozarena went 0-for-2 with two walks, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    The 29-year-old outfielder opened the scoring in the second inning by drawing a walk, stealing his 15th bag of the season and then coming home on a Josh Lowe single. Arozarena has reached base in 15 of 17 games this month, posting a .270/.352/.556 slash line in July with six doubles, four homers, five steals, seven RBI and eight runs as he digs his way out of an early-season hole. Even with the slow start, he's one of nine players so far to accumulate 15 homers and 15 steals in 2024.

  • Rays' Pete Fairbanks: Notches 19th save

    Fairbanks worked a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his 19th save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    The right-hander needed 11 pitches (eight strikes) to set down Toronto's 5-6-7 hitters. Fairbanks dealt with an arm issue early in the year, but since coming off the IL in mid-May he's posted a 1.88 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 23:8 K:BB through 28.2 innings while converting 16 of 17 save chances.

  • Rays' Tyler Alexander: Collects win as bulk reliever

    Alexander (3-3) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing three hits over three scoreless innings of relief in a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays. He struck out four without walking a batter.

    The southpaw entered the game in the third inning after Shawn Armstrong gave the Rays two scoreless innings as the opener, and Alexander kept the goose eggs coming to lower his ERA on the season to 5.88. It was his first appearance in the majors since May 30, but Alexander's latest stint as a bulk reliever figures to be a short one with both Jeffrey Springs (elbow) and Ryan Pepiot (knee) expected to rejoin the rotation in late July or early August. Alexander will likely get one more turn, however, and lines up for an outing at home against the Reds this weekend.

  • Rays' Joel Kuhnel: Claimed by Tampa Bay

    The Rays claimed Kuhnel off waivers from the Brewers on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The right-hander was designated for assignment by Milwaukee over the weekend, and Tampa Bay didn't waste any time scooping him up on waivers. Kuhnel has made just one appearance in the majors this season (with the Astros), but he's pitched well at the Triple-A level with a 2.30 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB across 27.1 innings.

  • Rays' Tyler Alexander: Officially called up

    The Rays recalled Alexander from Triple-A Durham, and he's expected to serve as a bulk reliever Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Shawn Armstrong will open Tuesday's contest for Tampa Bay, and Alexander is likely to follow as the primary pitcher. The left-hander has struggled in a swingman role this season and has a 6.19 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 48:13 K:BB across 56.2 innings.

  • Rays' Tyler Zuber: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Rays optioned Zuber to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Zuber was with the Rays for two days, allowing one run over 1.2 innings in a relief appearance Monday versus the Yankees. He's being replaced on the roster by Tyler Alexander, who will handle bulk relief duties Tuesday in Toronto.
