Spin: Manager Kevin Cash had said Tuesday that he expected Faria to miss time, but the team sent Faria to get examined before making the roster decision. It's been a frustrating sophomore season for the 24-year-old, who has a 5.48 ERA in 47 2/3 innings over 10 starts. "If it's not one thing, it's another. ... Everything up to this point has been a complete letdown," Faria said Tuesday after suffering the oblique injury. "I haven't done anything to help this team win ballgames, and it's another way of me letting them down." To take Faria's spot on the roster, the Rays called up left-hander Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday. Nuno, in his first season with the Rays after spending his first five years with the Yankees, D-backs, Mariners and Orioles, has yet to pitch in the big leagues in 2018. The veteran lefty has a 3.57 ERA in 40 1/3 innings over eight outings at Triple-A.]]> 5220123 Wed, 23 May 2018 17:56:12 EDT

Spin: Starter Jake Faria left first with a strained left oblique. Austin Pruitt came in to pitch, and two batters later, he bounced one in the dirt that skipped off the clay and hit catcher Wilson Ramos square on the top of his left hand. Faria had just struck out Andrew Benintendi for the second out in the third when he received a mound visit from Rays manager Kevin Cash and assistant athletic trainer Joe Binge. After talking to Faria, they stood next to the mound as Faria threw a practice pitch. Faria then left the game and Pruitt took over. Shortly thereafter, Ramos exited and was replaced by Jesus Sucre. Ramos was diagnosed with a left hand contusion.]]> 5219505 Tue, 22 May 2018 21:28:33 EDT
