Rays recalled RHP Chi-Wei Hu from Triple-A Durham.

Hu, 23, has pitched well for the Rays in previous limited opportunities afforded to him. The right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over eight innings in his prior four games with the team this season. He will work in middle relief now that he has been called back up.
Aug 23 - 11:09 PM

Rays activated RHP Alex Cobb from the 10-day disabled list.

Cobb has been battling turf toe in his big right toe for several weeks, but he did not experience any setbacks in his rehab and should be good to go down the stretch. Prior to landing on the disabled list, he held a 3.80 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 96/37 K/BB ratio across 23 starts covering 147 innings.
Aug 23 - 10:55 PM

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.
Aug 23 - 10:50 PM

Chris Archer fanned 10 while allowing three runs -- one earned -- in six innings Tuesday in a victory over the Blue Jays.

Archer allowed just four hits and a walk tonight. He's struck out 10 in back-to-back starts and nine times this season. He's at 217 strikeouts right now and on pace to top his career high of 252 from 2015.
Aug 22 - 11:34 PM

Corey Dickerson went 2-for-4 and hit his 23rd homer Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

The homer came off a Triple-A pitcher in Chris Rowley, but the struggling Dickerson will certainly take it. He had just one previous homer in August and was hitting .167/.221/.222 in 72 at-bats for the month.
Aug 22 - 11:28 PM

Rays designated INF/DH Trevor Plouffe for assignment.

Plouffe batted just .178/.268/.247 in 31 games for Tampa Bay, after hitting .214/.276/.357 through his first 58 games of the season with Oakland. The 31-year-old should be able to find another team eventually, but he's probably off the fantasy radar for good.
Aug 22 - 10:49 PM

Matt Andriese (hip, shin) will make another rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Durham.

Andriese had to make an early exit from his last rehab start Friday at High-A Charlotte after taking a comebacker off his shin, but he escaped with a minor bruise. The 27-year-old right-hander will probably make two appearances with Durham before rejoining the Rays sometime in early September.
Aug 22 - 4:58 PM

Rays prospect Brendan McKay pitched three shutout innings on Sunday for short-season Hudson Valley.

He can pitch. He can hit. He can field. He can't run. McKay is the best two-way prospect we've seen in a long, long time; with apologies to Hunter Greene. You should still expect him to do one thing or another -- and right now the odds are he's gonna pitch -- but the fact that he's holding his own as both is pretty special.
Aug 21 - 2:02 PM

Blake Snell delivered seven shutout innings Sunday in the Rays' 3-0 blanking of the Mariners.

It was the best performance of the season for Snell, who struck out eight batters and limited the Mariners to two walks and two hits. He has now earned victories in back-to-back outings, after entering the month of August with a record of 0-6. The talented young left-hander will try to keep it all working in his next start on the road against the Cardinals.
Aug 20 - 4:04 PM

Kevin Kiermaier homered Sunday in the Rays' defeat of the Mariners.

It was his first major league homer since he fractured his hip back in early June. Kiermaier also singled in the win and is now 5-for-12 with three runs scored since returning from the disabled list August 18. The talented center fielder is capable of providing sneaky fantasy value for the stretch run.
Aug 20 - 4:02 PM

Alex Colome earned his 36th save of the season Sunday against the Mariners.

Colome surrendered a one-out single to Yonder Alonso but he retired the next two batters he faced to seal a 3-0 shutout victory for Tampa Bay. The right-hander holds a 3.13 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 46/21 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings this season.
Aug 20 - 4:00 PM

Alex Cobb (toe) will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Thursday versus the Blue Jays.

He'll slide into the rotation spot vacated by Jacob Faria (abdomen). Cobb has been on the shelf for the last couple weeks with turf toe in his right big toe, but he's been throwing the last few days with no issues.
Aug 20 - 10:19 AM

Wilson Ramos is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Ramos has been red-hot lately but will get a breather in this one. Jesus Sucre will do the catching.
Aug 20 - 10:13 AM

Rays placed RHP Jacob Faria on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to August 17, with a left abdominal strain.

Faria admitted that he's dealt with the ailment for several starts and it could at least partly explain why he's scuffled a bit lately. The rookie expects to return this season, although a timetable isn't known. Alex Cobb (toe) will return from the disabled list Thursday to take Faria's spot in the Rays' rotation.
Aug 20 - 10:11 AM

Logan Morrison came off the bench to belt a pinch-hit home run against the Mariners on Saturday.

His blast off closer Edwin Diaz brought the Rays to within a run but they couldn't plate the elusive tying run in the loss. Morrison has cooled down quite a bit in the second half. His overall line is still good at .249/.355/.515 with 29 bombs and 68 RBI in 473 plate appearances.
