Braves placed RHP Chase Whitley on the 10-day disabled list with a staph infection.

Whitley was diagnosed with a staph infection in his right heel in late February and only pitched 2 1/3 innings in the Grapefruit League. He should be an option for the Braves around the middle of April.
Mar 29 - 1:29 PM

Chase Whitley (staph infection) is expected to resume pitching in Grapefruit League games next week.

Whitley has been sidelined since February 27 because of a staph infection on his right heel, but it sounds like he should be fine for the start of the 2018 regular season. The 28-year-old right-hander projects to serve as a long reliever this year for Atlanta.
Mar 15 - 2:56 PM

Braves and RHP Chase Whitley avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $800,000 contract.

The reliever had been claimed off waivers from the Rays earlier in the day. The Tommy John surgery survivor is expected to get a chance to start with his new team after posting a 4.08 ERA in 57 1/3 innings with Tampa Bay this past season.

Braves claimed RHP Chase Whitley off waivers from the Rays.

Whitley, who is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, held a 4.08 ERA and 43/16 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 relief innings for the Rays in 2017 in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery. The 28-year-old will fill a middle relief role in Atlanta.

Rays optioned RHP Chase Whitley to Triple-A Durham.

Whitley has pitched to a respectable 3.28 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 33 appearances covering 49 1/3 innings with the Rays this season. He figures to be back up with the big league club when rosters expand at the beginning of September.

Rays recalled RHP Chase Whitley from Triple-A Durham.

Whitley has a solid 3.45 ERA and 31/14 K/BB ratio over 47 innings with the Rays this season. He'll operate in middle relief in his return to the majors.

Rays optioned RHP Chase Whitley to Triple-A Durham.

Whitley has pitched well for the Rays this season but was knocked around for three runs over three innings Monday. Ryne Stanek is replacing him in the bullpen.

Chase Whitley got a five-out save in the Rays' 8-3 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

We'd like to see what Whitley could do as a starter, but it doesn't look like he'll get that chance in Tampa Bay anytime soon. As a reliever, he's done fine work, posting a 2.81 ERA in 32 innings. He's thrown the most innings of any major league pitcher yet to yield a homer this year.
Wed, Jun 21, 2017 04:01:00 PM

Chase Whitley pitched three scoreless innings Thursday in his second appearance since being called up by the Rays.

We'd like to see what Whitley could do at the back of the Rays' rotation, but he's a middle reliever right now. He's thrown five scoreless innings to date.

Rays recalled RHP Chase Whitley from Triple-A Durham.

Whitley was among the Rays’ final cuts in spring training. The right-hander could be a candidate to replace Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) in the starting rotation. Whitley holds a 4.69 ERA over 33 major league appearances including 17 starts.

Rays optioned RHP Chase Whitley to Triple-A Durham.

Whitley posted a 4.15 ERA in one start and five relief appearances this spring in the Grapefruit League. He's presumably going to work out of the rotation at Durham.
Thu, Mar 30, 2017 09:21:00 AM

Chase Whitley pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out two, Friday against the Pirates.

Whitley pitched four scoreless innings last time out, but the short outing today makes it seem as though he was officially ruled out of the rotation mix. He could still make the Rays as a reliever. He has a 4.91 ERA this spring, but he's coming on strong now.

Chase Whitley shut out the Jays for four innings while allowing just two hits and a walk on Saturday.

He punched out four batters and lowered his ERA to 5.59 in 9 2/3 spring innings. He is a longshot to make the Rays' rotation to start the season. He missed most of last year while recuperating from elbow surgery. Me made it into five games at the end of the season, compiling a nice 2.51 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings.
Sat, Mar 18, 2017 04:00:00 PM

Chase Whitley gave up three runs in 1 2/3 innings out of the pen Monday against the Twins.

Whitley built up to three innings last time out against Colombia, but he didn't have it today. While we're curious to see what he could do as the Rays' fifth starter, he's quite a long shot to claim the gig.
