Tampa Bay Rays Pitcher Placed On Injured List

The Tampa Bay Rays have placed Jalen Beeks on the 15-day injured list due to lower leg tightness.

This IL placement is retroactive to September 18th, so if all goes according to plan, Beeks could be back on the mound by early October. Yet, due to this being a leg injury, it certainly is possible that he may need a little extra time to recover. With Beeks being a key part of their bullpen, the Rays will be hoping that he will be good to go come playoff time.

The 2022 season has quietly been a very good one for Beeks. In 42 games, he may have a 2-3 record, but his 2.80 ERA shows just how effective he is coming out of the 'pen. Here's to hoping that he has a speedy recovery and can get right back on the mound at the start of next month.
