Earlier today, the Tampa Bay Rays placed outfielder Colby Rasmus on the 10-day DL with left hip tendinitis retroactive to June 19 and recalled outfielder Shane Peterson from Durham to take his place on the active roster.

Rays roster moves incoming as Colby Rasmus heads to DL

Last off-season Rays OF Colby Rasmus required multiple surgeries, one of which was for his hip. During spring training he experienced a slight setback in his recovery that was described as tendinitis, but made a full recovery. Since he’s paired back up with his old hitting coach Chad Mottola, Rasmus is hitting .281/.318/.579 with a 131 wRC+ and nine home runs. As of June 19, however, that tendinitis of the hip has returned, so Rasmus is serving a quick DL trip, backdated to the 19th with a plan to return next Friday on the 30th. While he rests, OF Shane Peterson has been recalled from...

Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Cash explains his faith in Cobb

The decision to leave him in was situational. Kevin Cash spoke after yesterday’s loss.

Cash on leaving Alex Cobb in past 110 pitches to face Cabrera with two men on base: That’s not going to happen every night . . . we thought Cobb was the best guy to get that ground ball.

Aggressive Rasmus

Brian Anderson was discussing the pre-game approach of Colby Rasmus on the broadcast this past Tuesday night: You know, the Rays have turned him loose. His take percentage is significantly down, so he is way more aggressive in swinging the stick and using the bat. His swing and miss percentage is way up so they […]

Rays 5, A’s 4 - Mallex Smith: Face of the Rays

Archers shines as Tampa Bay’s bats pull through This one was a blast, you guys. After 19 innings of baseball yesterday, it would not have been much of a surprise to see some sluggish effort from the Rays bats. Good luck telling that to Mallex Smith, Colby Rasmus and Timmy Beckham, however. This trio would have none of that, as they led the way for a satisfying Rays victory during Sunday’s matinee. The first few innings were all Oakland’s, as the Stephen Vogt show was on display, as he was responsible for putting the A’s up 3-0 with a 2-RBI single in the 2nd and an RBI double in...

Tampa Bay Rays news and links: “Bad things happen when people slide into first base”

But Jose Abreu is “a big dude.” The Rays spent plenty of effort this offseason trying to make sure they’re better positioned than they were last year if Kevin Kiermaier were to pick up an injury and miss time. So while it’s nice to have Colby Rasmus, Peter Bourjos, and Mallex Smith, it would still be preferable if Kiermaier hadn’t gotten hurt sliding into first base yesterday. Quoted in Bill Chastain’s article: "I know there was one out, but I feel like I had a good chance of beating Jose Abreu to the bag there," Kiermaier said. "You always see bad things happen when people...

Rays 5, Rangers 9: Late-inning lightning shocks Rays

Rays 5, Rangers 9: Late-inning lightning shocks Rays

Colby Rasmus gets how I feel right now. Well that sucked. It looked good for a while, but it started poor and ended worse. When you lead a game by three runs in the seventh you feel pretty good about your chances, so anything other than a win feels like a disappointment. But lets run through that disappointment together, shall we? One of the more inauspicious starts in recent memory for a Rays pitcher, as Shin-Soo Choo took the very first pitch he saw from Matt Andriese out of the ballpark to give the Rangers an early lead. Up until then, lefties had been hitting .158 against the Rays’...
