Rays DFA RHP Chris Devenski, Edwin Uceta Recalled Back To Major League Roster

After a dismal performance last night against the Mariners, Rays right-hander Chris Devenski was DFA’d this afternoon by the team.

The move makes way for another right-hander to jump back up with the club in Edwin Uceta, who was activated today by the club.

Devenski, a 2017 All-Star with the Houston Astros, hasn’t been on point this season for the Rays out of the bullpen, currently holding a 6.75 ERA on the season.

Since June 20th, Devenski has allowed six earned runs, struggling to get into a rhythm and finding command on the mound.

Devenski, who joined the team last season after the Los Angeles Angels released him in August, saw signs of being a potential key piece to the Rays 2023 postseason run.

While Devenski did deliver, finishing with a sub-3 ERA, he has not been able to gather things together in 2024.

For the Rays returning addition, Uceta brings 27 games of MLB experience under his belt, featuring two appearances this season with Tampa Bay and tossing four innings in his outings.

Uceta has been quite successful so far in his short sample size and willingness to try to give the Rays some consistency out of the bullpen.

As of right now, Devenski is not released from the team; rather, there is a chance he could decide to go to Triple A if an MLB deal isn’t found or look elsewhere to take his services.
