Rays LF Colby Rasmus Steps Away from Baseball

The Tampa Bay Rays anticipated the return of outfielder Colby Rasmus from soreness in his surgically-repaired hip, but now they will be without him for the remainder of the 2017 season. On Thursday, Tampa Bay placed Rasmus on the restricted list and revealed he had stepped away from the game of baseball.

Rasmus, who turns 32 on August 11, had been out since mid-June with the soreness in his hip. Before the injury landed him in the disabled list, he posted a .281/.318/.579 slash line with a 131 wRC+ and drew positive marks defensively. Tampa had already been without Rasmus for nearly a month, so there are no changes in fantasy values following the news.

While details on what caused Rasmus to step away from the game are not known, we at eDraft send him our best thoughts and wishes.
