Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price (triceps) pitched five shutout innings in his rehab start on Wednesday, June 26, for Class A Advanced Charlotte. He allowed two hits, walked one and struck out eight. Price said his left triceps, the strain of which landed him on the DL, felt fine after the outing, and he seems as if he believes that he's ready to come off the disabled list. His fastball was regularly between 92 and 94 mph, and he worked in all his secondary pitches.
Fantasy Tip: The Rays haven't announced a decision, but they could easily feel comfortable enough to have him return. It sounds like this time away may be enough to get Price back on track performance-wise in the bigs, too, so fantasy owners should be very encouraged about his outlook from July on. Alex Colome would be the odd man out in the Rays' rotation.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome will stay in the starting rotation and make his next start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, June 28.
Fantasy Tip: It gives Colome a little bit more short-term value in AL-only leagues, but the matchup against the Tigers isn't intriguing at all.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome will start Saturday, June 22.
Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old right-hander won his major league debut May 30 against the Miami Marlins by tossing 5 2/3 innings and allowing one run. He's a ground-ball pitcher that features four pitches, although his secondary offerings need work. His stay in the rotation won't be long enough to warrant much fantasy attention, though.

The Tampa Bay Rays recalled RP Alex Colome from the minors Wednesday, May 29, to help out their bullpen. The team will need another starter for Saturday, June 1, and SPs Alexander Torres and Chris Archer are the candidates.
Fantasy Tip: Torres was called up recently, but he was used out of the bullpen. Archer is probably the more realistic option after Jake Odorizzi was sent down. Look to add whoever gets the call in AL-only leagues, at least.
