Carlos Rodon had his rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte cut short Thursday after being struck in the head by a line drive.

Rodon was taken out as a precaution but is apparently fine. The left-hander allowed one hit over 2 2/3 shutout innings prior to exiting. He struck out six and didn't walk anyone while throwing 29 of his 40 pitches for strikes. The White Sox were hoping to activate Rodon sometime around June 1, though it's unclear if his return date will be impacted by Thursday's abbreviated outing.

Rays activated OF Joey Wendle from the paternity leave list.

Willy Adames was optioned to Triple-A in the corresponding move. Wendle has done a nice job this year, hitting .288 with one homer, 11 RBI and three steals while making 28 starts at second base. He should be in the lineup for Friday's series opener against Baltimore.

Blake Snell struck out eight Red Sox over six scoreless innings in a 6-3 win Thursday.

Snell's strong first half continues as he rolled over a Sox lineup that he's now faced three times already this year. In those three starts, he's allowed a combined two runs in 19 innings, striking out 19. Not a bad line against arguably the best team in baseball. Overall he's been only slightly less masterful, owning a 2.78 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 69/21 K/BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings of work. It's the breakout we've been waiting for since Snell dominated the minor leagues in 2015, and there's no reason to think he can't keep it up if he continues to keep his walk rate in check. A friendlier matchup awaits Tuesday when the Rays visit the Athletics on the West Coast.

Mitch Moreland hit his seventh home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

Is a solo homer in a five-run game in the ninth inning inconsequential? Sure. But we don't much care about game situation for fantasy purposes, and Moreland's dinger -- a ball he absolutely tattooed to right field off Matt Andriese -- counts all the same. He's now got seven homers and 22 RBI on the year, batting a robust .311/.390/.612 in 34 games. That's a playable, and likely underowned, option in even shallow mixed leagues.

Rays optioned SS Wily Adames to Triple-A Durham.

Adames was only up a couple days while filling in for Joey Wendle, who is set to return from paternity leave on Friday. The 22-year-old went just 2-for-12 with six strikeouts during his short stay in the big leagues, though he did enjoy a memorable debut by homering off Chris Sale on Tuesday night. He'll be back at some point this summer.
May 24 - 10:32 PM

Alex Colome didn't have to work much for his 11th save of the year Thursday, securing the last out in a win over the Red Sox.

The Rays entered the ninth inning with a 6-1 lead that the Sox cut to 6-3, and with a runner on second base and two outs Rays manager Kevin Cash turned to Colome to snuff out the threat. The right-hander did just that, a nice confidence boost 24 hours after he suffered the loss against the same Sox. His 4.15 ERA and 1.48 WHIP aren't anything to see, but Colome is still the unquestioned closer in Tampa, and that makes him a must-hold in all leagues until something changes.
May 24 - 10:23 PM

Denard Span was the spark atop the Rays' lineup Thursday, reaching base four times and scoring three runs in a win over the Red Sox.

Span also stole his sixth base of the year in the contest. He led off the bottom of the first inning with a double, a sign of things to come for Sox starter Rick Porcello, and Span also singled and walked twice in the win. It's not yet mixed-league relevant, but the 34-year-old has certainly provided some unexpected value for the Rays this year, batting .238/.364/.385 with four homers, 28 RBI, 27 runs scored and those six steals. That definitely plays in AL-only leagues and deeper leagues that take OBP into account.
May 24 - 10:13 PM

Rick Porcello had his shortest outing of the season Thursday, allowing eight hits and six runs -- four earned -- in 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Rays.

Denard Span's double to lead off the game was the only extra-base hit allowed by Porcello, but the Rays pecked him to death with singles and walks. That doesn't comfort many fantasy owners, but at least he wasn't shelled, despite the poor results. Nonetheless, the loss was his third subpar outing in his last four times out, inflating his ERA from 2.14 to 3.74 in that span. He's still 6-2 with a 1.14 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in 67 1/3 innings overall, and the 29-year-old will look for better results Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
