The Rays reassigned pitchers Everett Teaford and Brandon Gomes to minor-league camp along with six other players, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Teaford and Gomes were in the mix for spots on the 25-man roster before being reassigned. The team also cut catcher Mayo Acosta, outfielders Corey Brown and Joey Butler and pitchers Jhan Marinez, Jim Miller and Jordan Norberto.

News
In the final week of spring training, Rays manager Kevin Cash still isn't sure who his backup catcher will be. 

Curt Casali and Bobby Wilson are the two candidates for the job. 

"I think both guys have had good camps," Cash said, per MLB.com. "They've shown what they need to show. And we've kind of anticipated that that would happen. So there are going to be some discussions and decisions that have to be made.

Casali is hitting .208 this spring. 

"I know he's been continuing to work," Cash said, although he'd like to see him "drive the ball a little more." 

Wilson is hitting .143. 

"We knew Bobby," Cash said. "A little more of a track record, history at the Major League level. I think that helps."

Injuries
Illness - 15-day DL. Out until at last early April (Updated - 3/28/15)
News
Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday he's pleased with the progress of injured starting pitchers Alex Cobb (forearm), Drew Smyly (shoulder) and Alex Colome (illness), MLB.com reports.

"Especially [with] Colome," Cash said. "His wasn't an arm issue. Just putting weight back on. He just had a two-week delay there. But from all reports, when you ask them how's it going, there hasn't been anything given why we wouldn't be optimistic."

Smyly threw a bullpen session Sunday and is scheduled to face hitters in a batting-practice session Wednesday. After following that with another batting-practice session, he could progress to minor-league games and would need to get stretched out and ready for the regular season.

"Depending on need," Cash said. "If he got up to 75 pitches, does that help us? Or do we want to build him up to 105? We'd have to talk to him about that."

Cash added that there's a chance Smyly could rejoin the rotation by the end of April.

Colome threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday and is set to throw 50 pitches Tuesday. Cobb played catch Monday for the second time and said all went well.

News
Rays pitcher Brad Boxberger is expected to fill in to the closer role for at least the first month of the season while Jake McGee recovers from elbow surgery, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"He will be in a lot of meaningful situations," manager Kevin Cash said. "With some other guys, but for what Box did last year and the confidence we have in him, I would definitely anticipate him pitching in those leverage situations."

Matt Andriese

News
Rays starting pitcher Matt Andriese allowed five runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks in three innings while striking out four in his team's 6-6 tie with the Rays Monday.

Andriese had been pitching well coming into Monday's outing, posting a 1.10 ERA in 16 1/3 innings while striking out 10 batters, but he also issued six walks and allowed three unearned runs in his first five appearances. He's in the mix for one of the team's rotation spots with the Rays dealing with several injuries to starting pitchers.

"I try not to worry about [the competition for No. 4 spot]," Andriese said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I would love to go out there and go six with no runs. It's baseball. You learn from it and move on to the next one."

News
Rays starting pitcher Drew Smyly emerged from his bullpen session Sunday without any issues, so he is now scheduled to throw batting practice Wednesday and Saturday before he starts throwing in rehab games, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Manager Kevin Cash said Smyly's return to the rotation depends on whether the teams want to stretch him out to 75 or 105 pitches, per The Tampa Tribune. Smyly is targeting an April return.

News
It took 12 games for Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings to hit his first home run this spring, but despite the lack of home run power, the 28-year-old outfielder is still doing pretty well in Grapefruit League games.

Jennings, who hit a solo home run Thursday against the Yankees, is batting .483 (14 for 29) with two RBI, four runs, four walks and two stolen bases.

“He’s been on fire all spring, his at-bats, everything,” manager Kevin Cash said, per The Tampa Tribune. “The impressive thing is, the other day he didn’t have his best day, looked a little lot of sorts, but he came back two days after that and just erased it. He’s knocking balls all over the place.”

News
A day after indicating Brad Boxberger would be the team's closer while Jake McGee is sidelined with an elbow injury, Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday he is not going to name a closer, per the Tampa Bay Times. Cash added they will use several relievers in save situations.

"There's going to be guys that we'll lean on to pitch in those leveraged situations," Cash said, per MLB.com. "But it just doesn't make sense to come out and name a closer when the game could be on the line in the seventh or eighth inning."

Cash added they will revisit the closer situation once McGee comes off the disabled list. McGee is expected to miss the first month of the season.

Along with Boxberger, Grant Balfour, Kevin Jepsen and Ernesto Frieri could all be used in save situations.

"We're comfortable with all of our bullpen options," Cash said. "I don't see us leaning toward anybody just waiting to pitch the ninth inning."

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday he still hasn't decided on which order Jake Odorizzi and Nathan Karns will pitch in the season-opening series against the Orioles (April 6-8).

Chris Archer has been tabbed to start Opening Day in place of Alex Cobb (forearm), but Cash is mulling the starters for the next two games because he is still looking at matchups in the next few series after Baltimore.

Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb, who is not expected to be ready for the start of the season due to forearm tendinitis, played catch at a distance of 60-75 feet. The Rays had him throw at least 30 times with athletic trainer Ron Porterfield on Saturday, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Cobb said it's "square 1 but I don't think there's as many squares,'' per the Times. He expects to rejoin the team at some point in April.

News
Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe is working to become a more consistent hitter, regardless of his role on the team, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"I think consistency depends on how you feel at the plate if the rhythm and timing are there," Forsythe said. "Last year I think that my swing was at a good point to where the rhythm and timing were there going into playing every day, so when I got into that consistency of more at-bats, more playing time, my swing kind of came out more. It's not hit or miss, but I think there's certain times in the season when the swing is there and it's not there. That's baseball."

Forsythe hit .223 with 26 RBI in 301 plate appearances in 2014. He is feeling good about his approach with Opening Day right around the corner.

"There's time when you feel good about your swing. It comes based on results you get in a game,” Forsythe said. "That feedback doesn't necessarily always have to be, 'Oh I got a hit.' Or, "I drove a run in.' Or 'I hit a home run.' As long as you put the barrel to the ball, it can be a line drive out or a web gem made on you, that confidence is boosted, and the more opportunity you get when your confidence is up, you're going to get better results."

After being told on Friday that he would be the No. 3 starter in the pitching rotation for the Rays, pitcher Nathan Karns was roughed up on Saturday, per MLB.com.

"My command was a little bit off," Karns said. "I fell behind a lot and these guys took advantage of that when I was really trying to make pitches. They were able to have the count in their favor."

Karns gave up six runnings in only four innings pitched against the Red Sox. The 26-year-old has only pitched in 12 innings the last two seasons with the Rays and Nationals, posting a career ERA of 6.00 with 24 strikeouts and 10 walks.
