The news comes just 24 hours after the Rays learned they will be without Matt Duffy for an extended period of time, thanks to his own injuries problems.

Sink or Swim for Matt Duffy

New year, same story: Health is the big question. At the last minute of the 2016 trade deadline, the Rays traded LHP Matt Moore for prospect Lucius Fox, Michael Santos, and big leaguer Matt Duffy. Duffy was coming off a surprising rookie year in which he finished 2nd in ROTY voting, losing only to Kris Bryant. At the time of the trade, Duffy was hitting .253/.313/.358 good for 83 wRC+ and 0.9 fWAR. He would go .278/.300/.355 for the rest of the year on the Rays. Since then? We haven’t seen much of Matt Duffy. When the Rays acquired the San Francisco shortstop, this is what Matt...

Matt Duffy to start the year on the Injured List

Duffy’s lingering injuries continue to plague him Matt Duffy, who entered camp this spring in arguably the best shape of his life, will start the season on the newly renamed Injured List, as he has dealt with a hamstring issue all spring long. When on the field, Duffy has been a solid contributor for the Rays, both offensively and defensively.
