Rays activated INF Christian Arroyo from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Durham.

Arroyo returned to action Sunday for Durham after missing a couple days with a sore left hand and the Rays have decided to leave him in the minors for a while. The 23-year-old has hit only .181/.224/.278 in 19 games for Durham this season.

Matt Duffy (ankle) was a late scratch from the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Duffy injured his ankle Saturday and it appears he's not quite ready to play. He should be fine after healing over the All-Star break. Daniel Robertson will be at third base Sunday.
Jul 15 - 12:44 PM

Rays optioned RHP Chih-Wei Hu to Triple-A Durham.

Hu holds a 5.87 ERA across 7 2/3 relief innings with the big club this season. He's being replaced in the Rays' bullpen by Hoby Milner, who was acquired from the Phillies via trade Saturday.
Jul 15 - 10:54 AM

Rays designated RHP Ryan Weber for assignment.

Weber was DFA'd to make room on the team's 40-man roster for newly acquired Hoby Milner. Weber allowed two runs in five innings in his lone appearance with the Rays this season.

Rays acquired LHP Hoby Milner from the Phillies for cash considerations.

Milner was designated for assignment by the Phillies earlier in the week. He owned a 7.71 ERA in 10 appearances with the Phils prior to being waived. He'll pitch in relief for the Rays.

Jake Bauers went 2-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and four runs scored to spearhead a 19-6 whipping of the Twins on Saturday.

He thumped a two-run double in the eighth inning and boomed a two-run homer in the ninth as the Rays rubbed salt in the Twins' wounds late in the ballgame. The rookie first baseman has been in the majors for a little over a month now and so far is hitting better than he ever did in the minors. He has a .264/.383/.520 slash line with five homers, 18 RBI, 25 runs scored and two stolen bases in 125 at-bats. He's only 22 years old and should get even better as time goes by.
Jul 14 - 7:27 PM

Mallex Smith went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored to help the Rays thrash the Twins on Saturday.

He smacked a ground rule double to drive in a run in the fourth inning. He also walked in the ballgame. The speedster has a .279 batting average with one home run, 20 RBI and 28 runs scored in 85 games. He has 16 stolen bases on the season -- and in fact has stolen exactly 16 bases in all three of his major league seasons. He will leave that number in the dust this year obviously. The steals are great but he doesn't do enough of anything else to make himself a worthy starter in fantasy leagues.
Jul 14 - 7:17 PM

Chris Archer gave up two runs (one earned) in 4 1/3 innings and didn't stick around long enough to get a win in a lopsided thumping of the Twins on Saturday.

The Rays gave him 19 runs of support but Archer couldn't last long enough to qualify for the win. He pitched well but was inefficient, burning 93 pitches in four-plus frames. He struck out seven, walked one and yielded five knocks -- including a solo home run by Max Kepler. His record holds at 3-4 with a 4.29 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 15 starts.

Wilson Ramos (hamstring) said he won't be able to play in Tuesday's All-Star Game.

Ramos also said he expects to end up on the 10-day disabled list with the left hamstring injury suffered Saturday. Ramos said he will still attend the game in Washington, D.C., where he used to play, to participate in the festivities. Aside from Ramos, perhaps the biggest loser in all this is the Rays, who were surely hopeful to move Ramos ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline, a process made more complicated by this development.
Jul 14 - 6:37 PM

Matt Duffy was removed from Saturday's game against the Twins with a possible ankle injury.

Duffy turned the ankle during a swing in the top of the eighth inning and, with the Rays ahead by a comfortable margin, he was replaced by Daniel Robertson in the bottom of the inning. Duffy was 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored before exiting. The Rays should have an update after the game.
Jul 14 - 5:31 PM

Wilson Ramos left Saturday's game against the Twins due to left hamstring tightness.

Ramos pulled up running down the first base line in the sixth inning, so it was clear that something was up. The Rays say he will be re-evaluated Sunday, at which point we should know more. As it stands, it at least seems like a good bet he'll skip Tuesday's All-Star Game to opt for extra rest instead, but that, too, will likely be revealed after Sunday's evaluation.
Jul 14 - 4:21 PM

Wilson Ramos left Saturday's game against the Twins due to an undisclosed injury.

Rays writer Marc Topkin noticed Ramos slowing up as he ran down the first base line in the top of the sixth inning, and he was met by Rays manager Kevin Cash and the team trainer at the bag. He was then replaced by Jesus Sucre behind the dish in the bottom half of the inning. The loss would be a big one for the Rays and fantasy owners, as Ramos is supposed to be destined for D.C. for Tuesday's All-Star Game. The team should provide an update soon.

C.J. Cron - DH - Rays

C.J. Cron is absent from the Rays' starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Twins.

It looks to be just a regular day of rest for the 28-year-old slugger. Jake Bauers is starting at first base while Ji-Man Choi serves as the Rays' designated hitter against Jose Berrios and the Twins.
Jul 14 - 11:09 AM

Nathan Eovaldi was rocked for eight runs in just 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Twins on Friday.

You think the Rays wish they traded him already? After flirting with a perfect game in his most recent start against the Mets, Eovaldi allowed four runs on six hits in the first inning alone on Friday. Keep in mind that he had allowed just two runs in his previous three starts combined. His ERA jumped from 3.35 to 4.59 with the clunker. It was an outing to forget for him, but there’s still a lot to like with what he’s shown so far. He could still be a useful trade chip for the Rays assuming he puts this behind him.
