Rasmussen will head to the paternity list, and it’s unclear when the 27-year-old will next toe the rubber.
Rasmussen has been spectacular for the Rays of late, allowing two earned runs or fewer in eight consecutive outings. On the season, the right-hander is 9-4 with a 2.70 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and a 103/27 strikeout to walk ratio across 116.2 innings pitched (23 starts). His performance has helped Tampa Bay move to within five games of the New York Yankees for first place in the AL East division.
Rays manager Kevin Cash has yet to announce who will start in Rasmussen’s absence. The two-time AL Manager of the Year could opt for a bullpen game or look to someone from Triple-A Durham.
