Drew Rasmussen To Throw Live Batting Practice Next Week

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen (elbow) is slated for a live batting practice session on July 2, and the club is planning for him to start a minor-league rehab assignment after the mid-July All-Star break. Rasmussen is looking to take the next step in his throwing progression from last year's right flexor strain, and he's on course to be an option for the Rays sometime later this summer. He'll likely need at least four or five rehab appearances, so fantasy managers should not be expecting him to be available until the middle of August in a best-case scenario. The 28-year-old right-hander did record a 2.62 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 47:11 K:BB over 44 2/3 innings in Tampa Bay's rotation last season, so he's someone to consider stashing once he gets closer to his 2024 debut.

Drew Rasmussen To Throw In A Game Soon

Tampa Ray Rays right-hander Drew Rasmussen (elbow) had a season-ending internal-brace procedure for a right-flexor strain on July 24 of last year. Rasmussen, who has previously had two Tommy John surgeries, is doing well in his rehab and is scheduled to throw in an extended spring game around May 20. President of baseball operations Erik Neander said before the season that Rasmussen could return to the big-league staff in the final months of the season. Rasmussen was put on the 60-day injured list back on Feb. 20. The 28-year-old should remain on the waiver wire in single-year fantasy leagues. The former sixth-round pick in 2018 by the Brewers out of Oregon State had a 2.84 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with a 125:31 K:BB in 28 starts covering 146 innings in his last full season in the majors in 2022.

Jeffrey Springs, Drew Rasmussen Set For Extended Spring Games

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitchers Jeffrey Springs (elbow) and Drew Rasmussen (elbow) are both scheduled to throw in an extended spring game around May 20. The Rays' rotation is arguably ruined by injury more than any other in baseball, but at least two of their key arms are progressing toward a return at some point later this summer. Springs is likely closer to doing so in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and barring any setbacks, he could be in line to rejoin Tampa Bay's rotation by July's All-Star break. Rasmussen, on the other hand, is a weaker stash in fantasy leagues because his return from a hybrid internal brace procedure last July is not expected to arrive until the final months of the year. Over his last three seasons (196 innings), Springs owns a 2.53 ERA (3.14 FIP), 1.03 WHIP, and 231:49 K:BB and can be stashed in deep competitive leagues.

Drew Rasmussen Placed On 60-Day Injured List

The Tampa Bay Rays placed right-hander Drew Rasmussen (elbow) on the 60-day injured list on Tuesday to make room on the 40-man roster for the signing of infielder Amed Rosario. Rasmussen won't return until the second half of the 2024 season after having an internal-brace procedure on his right elbow last July. The 28-year-old looked great for the Rays in eight starts last year before getting hurt, posting a 2.62 ERA (2.54 FIP) and 1.05 WHIP with 11 walks and 47 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings pitched, but fantasy managers are going to have to wait until later this year to get another look at him. He's already had two Tommy John surgeries in his career, too, so expecting Rasmussen to pick up where he left off in 2023 would be pretty foolish.

Jeffrey Springs, Drew Rasmussen Expected Back Later This Year

Tampa Bay Rays president of baseball operations Erik Neander is expecting left-hander Jeffrey Springs (elbow) to return around July or August this year, with right-hander Drew Rasmussen (elbow) returning sometime after that. Springs had Tommy John surgery in late April of last year, so when the 31-year-old does return, he'll most likely be on a strict innings limit to close out the season. He only made three starts in 2023 but was excellent, allowing only a run while striking out 24 in 16 innings. Rasmussen had an internal brace procedure on his elbow in July and probably won't pitch much in the second half in 2024 when he does return. The 28-year-old was solid with a 2.62 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings over eight starts last year before his injury, but fantasy managers are going to have to wait until 2025.

Drew Rasmussen Officially Won't Return This Season

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen (elbow) will undergo an internal brace procedure and won't return until the middle of next season. The organization was hopeful that Rasmussen could make a return this season. The right-hander has been sidelined since the middle of May due to a right flexor strain. He will avoid Tommy John surgery, but will still undergo a similar surgery. The recovery time for this surgery is slightly shorter, but Rasmussen still won't pitch until at least mid-season in 2024.

Drew Rasmussen Placed On 60-Day Injured List

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen (elbow) has been placed on the 60-day injured list. This is shocking news after Rasmussen seemed fine after throwing seven scoreless innings on Thursday. The Rays have already placed Rasmussen on the 60-day injured list, which is never a good sign. Team president of baseball operations Erik Neander said they plan to shut down Rasmussen from throwing for eight weeks. Possibly, Rasmussen is heading in the same direction as fellow teammate Jeffrey Springs, who recently had Tommy John surgery. The loss of Rasmussen is obviously a big blow to both fantasy managers and the Rays rotation. Hopefully, the right-hander hasn't suffered a season-ending injury.

Drew Rasmussen Dominates Yankees On Thursday

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen had a fantastic start on Thursday, shutting down the New York Yankees in an 8-2 win. Rasmussen threw seven solid frames, allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out seven. He probably could've gone further, as he threw just 76 pitches, but we all know how the Rays operate by now. It was the second scoreless outing in a row for the 27-year-old after going through a bit of a rough patch in mid-late April. He is now 4-2 with a 2.62 ERA and 1.05 WHIP, and he has a 47:11 K:BB ratio over 44 IP. He pitches for a great team and has been fairly dependable so far, but he might not earn the number of wins you'd expect since he doesn't often go far into games. He's still a very good fantasy option, though.

Can Drew Rasmussen Continue Success Against Yankees?

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Drew Rasmussen will take the mound against the Yankees in the Bronx on Thursday night. He hurled 5.2 scoreless innings of New York in his last start. In 14 innings against New York for his career, the 27-year-old has 19 strikeouts and is yet to give up a run versus the Yanks. The righty induces a lot of soft contact, registering a 28.4% hard-hit rate against him across 37.2 innings this year. After beating up on Athletics pitching, the Yankees are scoring 8.8 runs per game over their last four outings, but that shouldn't deter fantasy managers from starting Rasmussen against a team he's performed well against in his career.

Drew Rasmussen Shuts Down A's Sunday

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Drew Rasmussen was once again excellent on Sunday, earning his second win of the season after shutting down the Oakland Athletics. Rasmussen threw seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit and no walks, while adding eight punchouts. This outing followed a near equally impressive opening outing where the 27-year-old didn't allow a run through six frames. After a breakout 2022 season where Rasmussen had an 11-7 record, 2.84 ERA, and 1.04 WHIP, the righty has opened 2023 just as strongly, tossing aside any speculation of regression.
