Rays reinstate Brooks Raley, Ryan Thompson, transfer J.P. Feyereisen to 60-day IL

The Rays made a flurry of moves this afternoon following a weekend series in Toronto, reinstating left-hander Brooks Raley and right-hander Ryan Thompson from the restricted list and returning righties Phoenix Sanders and Javy Guerra to Triple-A Durham. Raley and Thompson were not allowed to enter Canada due to their vaccination status but will rejoin the team for tonight’s opener of a three-game series in Boston.

Texas school shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde hits ‘close to home’ for ex-Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Brooks Raley

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, was especially disturbing for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Brooks Raley, a former reliever for the Astros. The small community of about 16,000 people west of San Antonio is the left-hander’s hometown, he attended school in the building where the shooting occurred, and his parents and a brother still reside there.

Texas shooting ‘hits close to home’ for Rays’ Brooks Raley

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, was especially disturbing for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Brooks Raley. The small community of about 16,000 people west of San Antonio is the left-hander’s hometown, he attended school in the building where the shooting occurred, and his parents and a brother still reside there. “It’s a pretty small town,” Raley said Wednesday. “News travels fast. My family is still there, my brother lives there, and his wife and daughter. So it hits close to home.” Raley, 33, was in the Rays’ clubhouse at Tropicana Field less than an hour before a game...

My Two Cents: For Brooks Raley, Success in Big Moments Comes Naturally

SEATTLE, Wash. — Brooks Raley has bounced around baseball for the past decade or so and done some good things, but there's been nothing quite like his time with the Tampa Bay Rays. He signed a two-year $10 million deal on Nov. 30, and then a few days later,...

Rays' Brooks Raley: Earns third save

Raley tossed a clean inning and earned a save over the Mariners on Friday. Raley entered the game to protect an 8-7 lead after Ryan Thompson served up a solo home run to Eugenio Suarez to lead off the ninth inning. The 33-year-old southpaw needed just nine pitches to retire three straight batters and pick up his second save in as many days. Raley has registered a 2.25 ERA with three saves and a 10:1 K:BB through eight innings this season.

Rays' Brooks Raley: Records second save

Raley earned the save against the Mariners on Thursday, completing a perfect inning during which he struck out one batter. Andrew Kittredge has emerged as the Rays' most frequent closer this season, but he had pitched each of the the previous three days and was given the night off Thursday. Raley stepped in to fill the ninth-inning role and did well, retiring the side on 12 pitches to preserve a one-run lead. The save was the southpaw's second of the season, and he could get additional chances here and there, though probably not enough to make him a viable fantasy asset in leagues that don't count holds.

Rays' Brooks Raley: Notches one-out save

Raley struck out the only batter he faced and earned a save over the Orioles on Friday. J.P. Feyereisen was lifted from the game after coughing up a two-out single to Rougned Odor in the ninth inning. Raley took over and fanned Cedric Mullins on six pitches to secure the 2-1 victory. The 33-year-old southpaw posted a 1.93 ERA in four spring appearances and it looks like he'll be part of the Rays' late-inning mix to start the 2022 campaign.

No surprise, Brooks Raley looks like a good fit for Rays

PORT CHARLOTTE — When Brooks Raley got the call from agent Keith Grunewald saying the Rays were among the first teams to express interest in him once free agency opened, the lefty reliever was rather surprised. “Honestly, going into this offseason, I would have said the Rays would probably...
