The Tampa Bay Rays recalled RP Jeff Beliveau from Triple-A Durham Saturday, May 18. He is expected to simply bolster the bullpen Sunday, May 19, and is likely headed back to the Bulls Monday, May 20, to make room for SP Jake Odorizzi.

The Tampa Bay Rays announced Saturday, May 18, that SP Jake Odorizzi will be recalled from Triple-A Durham to start Monday, May 20, against the Toronto Blue Jays in place of the injured SP David Price (triceps).

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon doesn't think SP David Price (triceps) will miss more than two or three starts, and he isn't concerned about his long-term standing.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Price owners, as he shouldn't be out for more than two weeks. However, that means whoever takes Price's rotation spot -- Chris Archer or Jake Odorizzi -- will be around only for the short term. They probably won't deserve consideration past AL-only leagues for that reason.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi could be a realistic candidate to take SP David Price's (triceps) turn in the rotation Monday, May 20. SP Chris Archer is scheduled to pitch for Triple-A Durham Thursday, May 16.
Fantasy Tip: If Archer makes his start tonight, that would likely eliminate him. Stay tuned. Either way, both Archer and Odorizzi are worth a dart throw in AL-only leagues, even if they're in the rotation for just two weeks.

The Tampa Bay Rays placed SP David Price (triceps) on the 15-day disabled list with a left triceps strain Thursday, May 16, and recalled SP Alexander Torres from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Torres could be used to help out in the bullpen in the meantime, so Chris Archer remains a candidate to come up to start Monday and for however long Price is out. Jake Odorizzi pitched Wednesday, so he's on turn, but he pitched poorly in his outing. Archer is the best bet to fill the vacant rotation spot for the short term, and he'll be a popular waiver wire target in AL-only leagues. He's worth a look in deep mixed formats, as well, depending on the matchups.

Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price (triceps) was diagnosed with a strained left triceps muscle and is likely to miss his next scheduled start Monday, May 20. Price will be re-evaluated Thursday, May 16. "It just felt (like) tightness," Price said. "It wasn't like excruciating pain, but I've never felt anything like that before. My gut feeling, I feel OK right now. I don't think it's too bad."
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear at this point if Price's triceps ailment will cause him to miss more than one turn in the rotation. Meanwhile, Alexander Torres, Chris Archer and Jake Odorizzi are all options to come up from Triple-A Durham to fill in for price. If it's just a spot start, Torres probably makes the most sense. If not, Archer is a good speculation in cavernous mixed leagues and AL-only formats.

The Tampa Bay Rays reassigned SPs Alexander Torres, Jake Odorizzi and Chris Archer to minor league camp Tuesday, March 12.

Tampa Bay Rays P Jake Odorizzi threw his first bullpen session with his new team Thursday, Feb. 14. He said Friday, Feb. 15, that he is pleased with where he is early in spring training. "(The first bullpen session) is always the toughest," Odorizzi said. "When I was younger, I'd try and do my best to show off on the first day, but it's all about the long run. Work on location early. Work on fastball-changeup. As spring progresses, you start focusing on your breaking stuff."
