  • Rays' Shane Baz: Tommy John surgery completed

    Baz (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery in Dallas on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    As anticipated, Baz's surgery involved nothing more complex than the traditional UCL repair, but the timeline associated with the procedure means that Baz will be sidelined through the 2023 season. He could be ready to resume facing hitters by the second half of next season, which should put him on track to enter 2024 spring training at full health and ready to reclaim a spot in the Tampa Bay rotation. Baz made just six starts this season due to right elbow issues that weren't permanently resolved by the arthroscopic procedure he underwent in late March.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Requires Tommy John surgery

    Baz will undergo Tommy John surgery and won't play during the 2023 season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Baz underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his elbow in late March and returned to action for a month just before the All-Star break, but he was shut down in mid-July with a right elbow sprain and had already been ruled out for the season. The Rays seemed optimistic about his recovery process, but the right-hander will be forced to miss the 2023 season since doctors have recommended Tommy John surgery.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Done for season

    Baz (elbow) will not return this season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Baz resumed throwing in late August and, according to the report, "seems to be doing okay in recovery," but the Rays will take the cautious route and shut him down for the rest of the campaign. Barring a setback, expect Baz to be back at 100 percent well in advance of spring training in 2023.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Will begin throwing program Monday

    Baz (elbow) said that he's been cleared to resume a throwing program Monday and remains hopeful he'll return from the 60-day injured list before the end of the season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Baz is ready to begin the ramp-up process following a four-week shutdown due to a right elbow sprain. Given that Baz missed the first two months of the season after requiring an arthroscopic procedure on his elbow in late March, the Rays are likely to proceed cautiously with him during his throwing program. At this stage of the season, Baz may not have enough time to build up for a starting role, but if he avoids any setbacks during the rehab process, he could have some value to the Rays as a multi-inning arm out of the bullpen down the stretch.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Baz (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Baz hit the injured list Thursday with a right elbow sprain. He'll be shut down for a month after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection, so he likely wouldn't have had a chance to return within 60 days even without this transaction. He'll now be officially unable to make it back before September 9, and it's not yet clear if he'll be ready to return on that date or at any point over the last month of the regular season.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Goes on IL with elbow sprain

    The Rays placed Baz on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a right elbow sprain after he experienced discomfort while playing catch Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He'll receive a platelet-rich plasma injection for the elbow and will rest and rehab for a month before being re-evaluated, according to Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network.

    Even if he's cleared to resume throwing following the four-week shutdown, Baz will likely need at least a couple weeks to get ramped back up for game action, so fantasy managers shouldn't count on the right-hander making his way back from the IL until at least early September. That reality likely makes Baz a comfortable drop in most redraft leagues, and his injury could prompt the Rays to explore acquiring another starting pitcher prior to the Aug. 2 trade deadline. After opening the season on the IL while recovering from arthroscopic surgery on the same elbow, Baz debuted June 11 and produced a 5.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB in 27 innings before succumbing to another elbow-related setback.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Pummeled in loss

    Baz (1-2) allowed seven runs on eight hits over 2.1 innings Sunday, striking out two and taking a loss against the Reds.

    Baz turned in a pair of scoreless frames before the Reds tagged him for seven runs in the third. He gave up three two-run homers in the inning to Jonathan India, Tyler Stephenson and Mike Moustakas. The 23-year-old righty had allowed just two home runs through 24.2 frames entering Sunday's start. Baz now owns an unsightly 5.00 ERA with a 30:9 K:BB over six starts. He's lined up to face Baltimore at home next week.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Fans seven in victory

    Baz (1-1) allowed one run on seven hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out seven and earning a win over Toronto.

    The lone run given up by Baz came during the third inning on Vladimir Guerrero's RBI single. After coughing up five runs in his season debut, the 23-year-old righty has allowed three runs with a 26:6 K:BB over his last 22.1 frames. He lowered his season ERA to 2.92 with 28 punchouts through five outings. Baz is lined up to start in Cincinnati next weekend.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Strikes out six in no-decision

    Baz allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out six in 5.2 innings Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision in the 5-3 loss against Milwaukee.

    Baz held the Brewers scoreless through the first five innings, scattering two singles and two walks. After allowing a leadoff single in the sixth, he fanned the next two batters and was removed from the ballgame, having thrown a season-high 95 pitches, rather than facing Andrew McCutchen. Matt Wisler came in and promptly allowed a pair of two-out, two-run homers. The 23-year-old Baz has been excellent over his last three starts, allowing two runs in 16.1 innings while posting a 19:4 K:BB.

  • Rays' Shane Baz: Looks good against Yankees

    Baz did not factor in the decision against the Yankees on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six over 4.2 innings.

    Baz held New York scoreless through three innings before serving up a solo homer to Aaron Judge in the fourth. The right-handed hurler began to falter in the fifth, allowing three straight hitters to reach base on a single and two walks with one out, but he struck out Judge with the bases loaded before giving way to a reliever. Baz was one out away from qualifying for the win when he was pulled, though that detail was made moot when the Yankees came back to win. After allowing five runs over 2.1 innings in his first start of the season June 11, Baz has bounced back to allow only one run across 10.2 frames while racking up 13 strikeouts in his subsequent pair of outings.
