Tampa Bay Rays Player News: All Positions

News: Castillo will be sidelined for two weeks due to a right shoulder impingement, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: Castillo landed on the injured list over the weekend, and it turns out the injury will keep him sidelined through the All-Star break. With the right-hander on the shelf, Emilio Pagan and Jose Alvarado (personal) should see the majority of save opportunities for Tampa Bay for the time being.
News: Robertson underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday to remove a loose body, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Robertson will be sidelined for around 4-to-6 weeks following the scope, meaning the utility man will be out of commission until at least the second half of July.
News: Glasnow (forearm) suffered a setback and will be shut down for three weeks, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Glasnow apparently felt some discomfort while throwing in Oakland over the weekend, and a subsequent MRI revealed right flexor inflammation. This is a tough blow for the right-hander, who was originally hoping to be back around the All-Star break. Glasnow will be reevaluated in three weeks, at which point a new timetable for his return will hopefully emerge.
News: Stanek served as the opener in Sunday's win over the Athletics, allowing an unearned run on a hit and two walks while also recording three strikeouts over an inning-plus.
Impact: Stanek had a rather unusual outing in his latest stint as an opener, with the right-hander getting an unearned run tacked onto his ledger following his exit after facing one batter in the bottom of the second inning. Stanek did manage multiple strikeouts for the first time in the last five appearances, extending what has been a solid June overall. Factoring in Sunday's line, the 27-year-old boasts a 1.59 ERA and 13 strikeouts across 11.1 innings during the month.
News: Zunino went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs in a win over the Athletics on Sunday.
Impact: The multi-hit effort was a long time coming for Zunino, considering he'd last accomplished the feat way back on May 7. The veteran backstop is still hitting just .160 in June, although he's now sporting a modest four-game hitting streak, his second longest of the season.
News: Garcia went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a walk in a win over the Athletics on Sunday.
Impact: Garcia generated one of two three-hit efforts on the afternoon for the Rays in what was a fruitful offensive day overall. The veteran outfielder had been scuffling at the plate recently prior to Sunday's breakout, going just 1-for-17 over the previous five games.
News: Walls was promoted to Double-A Montgomery on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Impact: Walls was slashing .269/.339/.417 across 180 plate appearances with High-A Charlotte, a line that partly consists of 13 extra-base hits (seven doubles, two triples, four home runs) and 26 RBI. The 22-year-old shortstop is likely to spend the remainder of the season with the Biscuits, his fourth stop in the Rays organization since being selected in the first-year player draft back in 2017.
News: Banda (elbow) fired 1.2 perfect innings in High-A Charlotte's win over Lakeland on Sunday. He did not record any walks or strikeouts.
Impact: Sunday marked Banda's first return to game action since Tommy John surgery in May 2018. The 25-year-old southpaw threw a total of 25 pitches, with 18 of those finding the strike zone. It was certainly an encouraging start to Banda's rehab assignment, and he'll now look to progressively build up his innings and pitch count in upcoming appearances.
