Devil Rays released RHP Dan Miceli.
It was obvious last January that the Rays shouldn't have given Miceli a two-year deal. Fortunately, they didn't let the mistake stop them from cutting Miceli this spring. He'll get $850,000 in return for disappearing. Gary Glover will likely claim his place in the bullpen. Thu, Mar 29, 2007 02:36:00 PM

Dan Miceli was charged with four runs in just two-thirds of an inning Tuesday against the Phillies.

Miceli has pitched the worst of any of the Rays' candidates for saves, giving up seven runs -- six earned -- and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. The club should be pleased if he's just an adequate middle reliever.

Devil Rays activated RHP Dan Miceli from the 60-day disabled list.

Miceli, who had been out since May 5 with a sore shoulder, will work in middle relief for now. It's possible that he'll be utilized in a setup role before the end of the year, but he shouldn't ever again be a candidate for saves.

Dan Miceli (shoulder) struck out five in two perfect innings for Double-A Montgomery on Friday.

It appears that he's as ready as he's ever going to be. Miceli has yet to allow a run in five innings on his rehab assignment.

Dan Miceli (shoulder) pitched a hitless inning Wednesday in his first appearance for Double-A Montgomery.

Miceli might rejoin the Tampa Bay bullpen after three or four more innings, but it's unlikely that he'll reemerge as a candidate to close this season. AL-only leaguers can stay away.

Dan Miceli (shoulder) began a minor league rehab assignment Monday at Double-A.

Miceli has been on the disabled list since May 5, but appears on track to return next month.
Tue, Jul 25, 2006 10:09:00 AM

The Devil Rays reportedly hope to have Dan Miceli (shoulder) back at some point this season.

Miceli is a long way from returning, but has begun working out. He has been out since May 5 and is reportedly still feeling some shoulder soreness.

Devil Rays transferred RHP Dan Miceli from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Miceli has been out since May 5 with shoulder soreness. There doesn't seem to be any timetable for his return.
Wed, Jun 14, 2006 03:38:00 PM

Dan Miceli had an MRI on his right shoulder and will see a doctor Sunday.

He is not eligible to come off the disabled list until Friday but the Devil Rays have not announced his timetable. When he does come back, he'll likely be a setup man for Tyler Walker.

Devil Rays placed RHP Dan Miceli on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness.

Miceli had a 6.39 ERA and a 5/11 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings. The Rays certainly cane be any worse off while trying younger pitchers in key situations.

Dan Miceli is headed for the disabled list with soreness in his pitching shoulder.

Great news for all of the AL-only leaguers afraid to drop him. Miceli was Tampa Bay's preferred closer at the start of the year and might yet be again, but he was doing a lot more harm than good right now. Shawn Camp, Tyler Walker and Chad Orvella will battle for save opps with Miceli out of the way.

Dan Miceli was pulled from Thursday's game with an apparent leg injury after giving up a grand slam to Johnny Damon.

Miceli was charged with three runs, two of which were earned. His own error led to the unearned run, and the only out he got was on a sac bunt. Miceli, like most of the rest of the Tampa Bay pen, should only be pitching in blowouts right now. He failed miserably when he was asked to keep the Rays in the game tonight.

Dan Miceli was removed from a save opportunity for the second time in three nights Friday against the Red Sox.

Whereas Miceli was simply terrible against the Yankees on Wednesday, he did nice work on the eighth inning tonight. He entered with two on and one out and got Mark Loretta to ground into a fielder's choice and David Ortiz to pop out. The ninth started with back-to-back walks to Manny Ramirez and Jason Varitek, resulting in Miceli's removal. Tyler Walker entered and got the save in a three-run game, adding more intrigue to the closer mess in Tampa Bay.

Dan Miceli was brought in to pitch the 10th with a two-run lead against the Yankees tonight, but he walked two and gave up a single while getting two outs, causing him to be removed.

Shawn Camp replaced him and retired Gary Sheffield for the save. Miceli has now walked eight batters in nine innings, which is a ridiculous figure for someone with his mediocre stuff. Even though he's blown just one save, the Rays should strongly consider putting him in middle relief until he pitches better.
Wed, Apr 26, 2006 11:40:00 PM

Dan Miceli got two outs with a four-run lead against the Red Sox tonight to earn his fourth save.

Travis Harper did most of the work, pitching 2 2/3 scoreless innings in relief of Scott Kazmir. However, with the help of a Ty Wigginton error, the Red Sox loaded the bases off him in the ninth. That brought in Miceli, who struck out Trot Nixon on three splitters and got Jason Varitek to fly out to end it.
