Rays' Calvin Faucher: Recalled, moved to 60-day IL
The Rays recalled Faucher (biceps) from Triple-A Durham and placed him on the 60-day injured list Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher has been dealing with biceps tendinitis since late August, and his move to the 60-day IL will free a spot on the 40-man roster for Raimel Tapia, who was selected from Triple-A on Saturday. Faucher logged a 7.01 ERA and 1.68 WHIP through 25.2 innings in the majors this season and will now focus on getting ready for the start of the 2024 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Sidelined at Triple-A
Triple-A Durham placed Faucher on its 7-day injured list Tuesday with an unspecified injury.
Faucher has been a frequent mover between the Rays and Triple-A Durham in 2023, tossing 25.2 innings for the big club and 8.2 innings for the organization's top affiliate. Following his demotion to Durham on July 30, Faucher made just two relief appearances before hitting the shelf. The Rays haven't shed light on whether Faucher's injury is serious enough to end his season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Sent to minors
Faucher was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher was roughed up for six runs over two innings Saturday in Houston, and the outing will cost him his spot on the big-league roster. Erasmo Ramirez had his contract selected in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Back with Tampa Bay
The Rays recalled Faucher from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday.
Faucher will provide Tampa Bay with a fresh arm in relief for what's expected to be a bullpen day in Wednesday's series finale in Texas. Over 19 innings with the big club this season, Faucher has pitched to a 5.21 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 16:11 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Reinstated, optioned to Triple-A
The Rays reinstated Faucher (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Durham.
Faucher began a rehab assignment in rookie ball Monday, but the Rays decided to keep him in their farm system rather than have him rejoin the bullpen. The 27-year-old righty holds a 5.21 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 19 innings this season and could return to the majors later this year if he performs well in Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Starts up rehab assignment
Faucher (elbow) began a rehab assignment Monday with the Rays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate, covering one inning while allowing an unearned run on two hits and one walk.
Faucher has been on the 15-day injured list since June 7 with right elbow inflammation, but now that he's out on a rehab assignment, he should be on the cusp of an activation. The Rays may want to see the reliever make another appearance or two at a higher-level minor-league affiliate before giving him the green light to rejoin the big-league bullpen.... See More ...

Rays' Calvin Faucher: Lands on IL with elbow injury
Faucher was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher last pitched Monday, throwing a scoreless inning of relief in a 4-1 win over Boston. He'll be eligible to return later this month, though the Rays aren't yet providing a timeline for Faucher to be activated just yet.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Recalled from Triple-A
Faucher was recalled from Triple-A Durham by the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher can provide some length for a bullpen that's been overworked this week. He holds a 6.43 ERA and 11:6 K:BB across 14 innings with the big club this season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Sent to Triple-A
Tampa Bay optioned Faucher to Triple-A Durham on Sunday.
With Javy Guerra reporting to the Rays on Sunday after being acquired from Milwaukee, Faucher's demotion is necessary to create room on the 26-man roster. Faucher had been serving as an opener of late for Tampa Bay and had allowed a run in all but one of his appearances in April while registering a 6.43 ERA and 11:6 K:BB across 14 innings. He could be back with Tampa Bay in the coming weeks when the big club requires a fresh arm.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Opening for Chirinos on Saturday
Faucher will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the White Sox, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Faucher will work the first inning or two before Yonny Chirinos takes over as the bulk reliever. Because he won't last long enough to qualify for a win, Faucher shouldn't be considered as a fantasy streaming option even as the nominal starter.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Stuck with loss as opener
Faucher (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, giving up one run on one hit and two walks over two innings as the Rays fell 1-0 to the Astros. He struck out one.
Houston plated a run in the top of the first inning thanks in part to a wild pitch and an error, and that proved to be the game's only bit of offense, saddling Faucher with the loss. The right-hander gave way to Josh Fleming after 43 pitches (23 strikes), and there's no guarantee Faucher continues to see regular work as an opener ahead of the southpaw given his struggles. Through 12.2 innings this season, he has a 5.68 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 10:4 K:BB, and he's been scored upon in six straight appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Starting Wednesday vs. Astros
Faucher will start Wednesday's game against the Astros, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher will be making his third consecutive start, and though he was limited to two innings his last time out Friday versus the White Sox, he built up to a season-high 46 pitches. The Rays' decision not to make Faucher available in relief between either of his last two starts seems to imply that he won't be deployed as a traditional opener Wednesday, so he could bump his pitch count a little bit more. Even so, Josh Fleming is expected to work multiple innings behind Faucher, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, so a piggyback arrangement between the two pitchers could be in the works. Since Faucher isn't likely to work deep enough into Wednesday's contest to qualify for a win, Fleming probably represents the preferred streaming option between the two.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Ineffective as opener
Faucher didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 8-7 win over the White Sox, giving up three runs on five hits over two innings. He struck out three without walking a batter.
After the Rays jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, Faucher handed most of it back in the top of the second, giving up four straight hits at one point. The 27-year-old right-hander has been scored upon in five straight appearances split between opening and relief work, leading to a 5.91 ERA and 1.50 WHIP through 10.2 innings with a 9:2 K:BB. Tampa Bay is scrambling to plug holes in its rotation with Zach Eflin (back), Jeffrey Springs (elbow) and Tyler Glasnow (oblique) all on the IL, but Faucher doesn't appear to be a reliable alternative, even working ahead of a bulk reliever....

Rays' Calvin Faucher: Getting another turn to open game
Faucher is slated to start Friday's home contest against the White Sox and will likely be stretched out to around four innings, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Unless he's needed out of the bullpen in an emergency for Wednesday's game in Cincinnati, Faucher will be making his second straight turn as a "starter." While opening in front of Josh Fleming in last Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jays, Faucher covered 2.2 innings and struck out two while allowing one run on two hits and one walk. Faucher is in line to work as more of a piggyback starter than an opener Friday, but he's still unlikely to work deep enough in the contest to qualify for a win. Expect Fleming to once again cover the bulk of the innings once Faucher exits Friday.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Tabbed as Saturday's opener
Faucher will be the Rays' opener Saturday against the Blue Jays, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.
Josh Fleming will come in after an inning or two to work as the primary pitcher. Faucher, a 27-year-old righty, has given up three earned runs on seven hits, one walk and two home runs in six innings this season. This will be his first turn working as an opener in 27.1 MLB innings dating back to last season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Dominant in spring debut
Faucher (oblique) struck out the side during his inning of relief in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Twins in Grapefruit League play.
Faucher's spring debut was delayed over three weeks after he reported to camp with the oblique injury, but he proved to be worth the wait Tuesday. He displayed a mid-90s fastball and sharp mid-80s slider during the appearance, pumping in 10 of his 13 pitches for strikes and retiring two of the three hitters he faced with swings and misses. Though he wasn't overly impressive in his first season in the majors in 2022, Faucher nonetheless has a chance to break camp with Tampa Bay in a low-leverage relief role.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Nearing return
Faucher (oblique) is expected to make his Grapefruit League debut Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
Faucher has been sidelined since late February but has been throwing live batting practice for the last seven days. He'll be set for his first game action against the Twins after posting a 5.48 ERA and 1.69 WHIP across 21.1 innings in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Calvin Faucher: Nearing mound work
Faucher (oblique) is expected to be cleared to throw off a mound soon, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faucher has stretched out his flat-ground throwing to 120 feet and is almost ready to take the mound the next time he throws. Assuming the reliever is able to continue progressing with no setbacks, the Rays anticipate him being ready to go for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
