Rays Suffer Big Blow to the Pitching Staff

The Tampa Bay Rays are continuously winning ball games. With a record of 30-10, atop of the AL East. However, one problem keeps occurring, injuries to the pitching staff.

The next to fall is Drew Rasmussen. The Rays announced today, per Marc Topkin, that they placed Rasmussen on the 60-day IL with a flexor strain.

Rasmussen has been a huge piece of the Rays starting rotation this season and a big reason for their hot start. Before being placed on the IL, Rasmussen has pitched to a 2.62 ERA in 44.2 IP, all while piling up 47 SO.

With Rasmussen hitting the IL, he joins the likes of Shane Baz, Tyler Glasnow, and Jeffery Springs. Unfortunately, that's just the start of the Rays pitching injuries. With the Rays, they overcome adversity better than almost any other team in baseball and these injuries will likely test that adversity.
