Felix Hernandez is headed back to Seattle to have his right shoulder examined.
Hernandez experienced shoulder fatigue -- what manager Scott Servais called "dead arm" -- during his ugly two-inning start Tuesday night at Detroit's Comerica Park. Seattle wound up losing the game 19-9 and Hernandez watched his ERA balloon to 4.73 after surrendering four earned runs. There might not be an update on his status until Thursday. Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times says Felix "left the clubhouse quickly" on Tuesday and "was visibly upset."
Sam Dyson (hand) allowed one run on two hits in a one-inning rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock.
That's obviously not a promising note, but Dyson needed only 10 pitches to ultimately get three outs and he pitched a scoreless inning in his rehab debut with Triple-A Round Rock on Monday. The right-hander is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Thursday, and he now has back-to-back rehab appearances under his belt. It should be time.
Making an emergency start, Austin Pruit held the Orioles off the scoreboard for three innings Tuesday in a 2-0 win.
The Rays evidently didn’t like the weather forecast early in the evening, so they scratched Erasmo Ramirez. It was a little rainy but playable as it turns out, but Tampa is surely fine with their decision after Pruitt yielded just one hit and one walk while whiffing three over his three scoreless frames. Pruitt will return to a long relief role.
Wade Miley walked six batters but managed to hold the Rays to two runs over seven frames in a loss Tuesday.
The left-hander’s control has been hit-or-miss this season to say the least, as he walked seven in his first outing and one combined in his next two before issuing six free passes in this one. Miley managed to hold the Rays relatively in check, though thanks to eight strikeouts and just four singles allowed. The southpaw will carry a 2.08 ERA into Boston next week against his former club.
Alex Colome walked a batter but hung on to convert his fifth save of the season Tuesday in Baltimore.
Colome issued a two-out walk to Chris Davis after getting a couple groundouts to start the frame, but he then set down Mark Trumbo swinging to close it out. The Rays' closer has been virtually untouchable this season, yielding just one unearned run over 10 frames.
Rickie Weeks singled, walked and scored a run Tuesday against the Orioles.
Weeks got the start against a left as he's been doing this season and batted fifth. He just missed out on a three-run home run in the first inning when he flied out to the warning track in center field. Weeks settled for a walk and a run in the fourth and a single in the eighth.
Huston Street (lat, shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.
It'll be his first mound workout since early March. Street is on the 60-day disabled list and just beginning a throwing program that will take at least five weeks. He's first eligible to join the Angels' bullpen June 1.
Steven Souza singled three times in five trips to the dish Tuesday in Baltimore.
He was the only player on either side to record a multi-hit game, as the Rays and Orioles combined for just eight hits -- seven singles -- and two runs in this one. Souza's batting line is up to .349/.426/.590 for the season.
