Josh Fleming is expected to operate in a versatile role on the Rays' pitching staff this season.
"I'm excited for whatever role they put me in, whether it's starting, whether it's coming out of the bullpen," Fleming told reporters earlier this week. The 24-year-old southpaw impressed with a 2.78 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP during the shortened 2020 campaign. He could be on the streaming radar if Tampa Bay gives him starts at ant points this season.
Josh Fleming was removed from their 28-man roster for the American League Divisional Series against the Yankees.
Fleming did not pitch in the Wild Card round and was left off the 28-man roster for the ALDS against the Yankees. He finished with a perfect 5-0 record to go along with a 2.78 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 25:7 K:BB over 32 1/3 innings during the regular season. Fleming is eligible to return in the if Tampa Bay advances past New York.
Josh Fleming improved to 5-0 on Sunday against the Phillies, tossing six scoreless innings while striking out five and walking one.
The Rays went on to win this one 5-0, eliminating the Phillies from postseason play in the process. The 24-year-old southpaw is another Tampa Bay pitcher to seemingly emerge from nowhere, putting up a 2.78 ERA in 32 1/3 innings on the season. He'll likely pitch out of the bullpen for the Rays in October.
Josh Fleming received a no-decision on Thursday against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings pitched.
Fleming was done in by two homers, one of which was a mammoth shot by Rafael Devers. The 24-year-old starter is still 3-0 on the season and he'll carry a 4.12 ERA into his next appearance against the Nationals.
Josh Fleming earned his third win of the summer on Friday against the Marlins, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings pitched.
Fleming only struck out two in the start. He certainly didn't pitch as well as it usually takes to earn a victory, but that's why the win stat is a fluky one. The 25-year-old will carry a 3.52 ERA into his next outing against Boston.
