Tampa Bay Rays Player News: All Positions

News: Duffy will miss a few days of spring training action after tweaking his hamstring, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Impact: It's unclear how the injury was incurred, but the team is confident the injury is minor. Duffy will likely miss the first few spring games before resuming his normal role as the Rays' starting third baseman once his hamstring stops acting up. In the meantime, Yandy Diaz may see a bit more time at the hot corner, allowing Ji-Man Choi to log some innings at first base to fill the void.
News: Gibaut will be shut down a few weeks after a specialist determined the injury to be a mild lat strain Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: The team is breathing a sigh of relief, as there were some thoughts the injury could've been worse. Gibaut doesn't have a great chance to break camp with the Rays if this issue lingers too deep into camp, but he could find his way to the majors at some point given the 2.09 ERA he posted in 56 innings at Triple-A Durham last season. A firmer return date will likely take shape as he ramps up his activity again.
