Shawn Armstrong Holds Steady as Opener

Shawn Armstrong delivered a solid performance, allowing no earned runs and just two hits while striking out one over two innings in Thursday's narrow 6-5 victory over the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact

Armstrong served as the opener as the Rays won in 12 innings. His season metrics, including a 3.62 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, suggest volatility in fantasy leagues, particularly with his use as an opener. With a strong 10.2 K/9 rate and a healthy strikeout-to-walk ratio, Armstrong could become a valuable asset for fantasy managers looking for saves plus holds.

Shawn Armstrong (neck) without timetable for return

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Shawn Armstrong is without a timetable to return as he deals with a neck injury.

Fantasy Impact

The neck ailment has kept Armstrong off the field to this point in the spring and Rays manager Kevin Cash said it's highly unlikely he'll be ready to go for Opening Day. Cash also noted he doesn't believe anything has been "defined" with what is going on with the neck injury. Armstrong turned in a 4.38 ERA and 24.5% K% across 50 appearances in 2022, locking up two saves in the process.
