  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Sitting Saturday

    Walls is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest against Atlanta.

    Walls will take a seat after he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's series opener. Amed Rosario will draw the start at shortstop and bat seventh versus Atlanta.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Swipes first bag

    Walls went 0-for-2 with two walks, a stolen base and a run scored Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Walls has started five of six games since being activated from the injured list, though he's collected just two hits in 14 at-bats. Positively, he stole his first base of the season Wednesday, suggesting he'll still be willing to run even after returning from a serious hip injury.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Not in Monday's lineup

    Walls is out of the lineup for Monday's contest against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Walls started at shortstop in each of the Rays' three games over the weekend following his activation from the 60-day injured list, but he will begin Monday's contest on the bench. Jose Caballero -- who had been the everyday shortstop prior to Walls' return -- will occupy the position Monday.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Two hits in return

    Walls went 2-for-4 on Friday against the Orioles.

    Walls made his season debut after missing the first two months while recovering from hip surgery. He hit seventh in the order and started at shortstop, shifting Jose Caballero to second base and Brandon Lowe to the bench with lefty Cole Irvin on the mound for the O's. It's unclear whether Walls will be able to earn much playing time against right-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Activated from 60-day IL

    The Rays activated Walls (hip) from the 60-day injured list Friday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Walls has been out all season following offseason hip surgery and had his recovery delayed due to inflammation in the hip. However, he recently got back up to speed during a five-game rehab stint with Triple-A Durham, going 8-for-21 at the plate. Walls could take some playing time away from Jose Caballero at shortstop while working in a utility role.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Headed to Durham

    Walls (hip) will have his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, MLB.com reports.

    Walls has been playing in the Florida Complex League for the last week and went 2-for-17 with one home run, two walks and two strikeouts across five games. He was able to play entire games at shortstop and will now move up levels in what should be a final stint in his rehab before being activated from the injured list.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Starting rehab assignment

    The Rays assigned Walls (hip) to the rookie-level Florida Complex League on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment.

    After developing inflammation in his surgically repaired right hip earlier this spring, Walls was shut down from activity for a bit, but he's progressed to the point that he's ready to test himself in a game setting. The infielder will eventually move up to a higher affiliate, but he'll likely be looking at a lengthy rehab assignment since he's been on the injured list all season. Walls will probably be in store for a role as a utility infielder once he's activated.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Cleared for activity

    Walls (hip) reported to the Rays' spring training facility in Port Charlotte, Fla. earlier this week and will go through workouts for the next 10-to-14 days before beginning a rehab assignment, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    According to Topkin, Walls will be going through a modified version of his own spring training while he builds up stamina and stacks up at-bats as he works his way back from the surgery he required last October to address a labral tear in his right hip. The Rays opted to shut Walls down in late April for two weeks after he experienced renewed inflammation in his hip, and the 27-year-old seemingly responded well to the extra time off. Since he's been on the injured list all season, Walls will presumably be in store for an extended minor-league rehab assignment, making it unlikely that he's activated before the end of May. Whenever he's ready to go, Walls could threaten Jose Caballero for everyday duties at shortstop.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Shut down for 10-to-14 days

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Walls will be shut down from baseball activities for 10-to-14 days due to inflammation in his surgically repaired right hip, Evan Closky of 10 Tampa Bay reports.

    Walls was shifted to the 60-day injured list over the weekend after suffering a setback in his recovery and won't be eligible for activation until late May.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Rays transferred Walls (hip) to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Ryan Bass of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Manager Kevin Cash said last weekend that Walls has not been recovering as quickly as the Rays had hoped for, and the infielder's move to the 60-day IL is further indication that he is not nearing a return soon. Walls is now eligible to return from the IL beginning May 26, though it remains unclear whether he'll be ready to go by then or not. Erasmo Ramirez was selected from Triple-A Durham to fill the open spot on Tampa Bay's 40-man roster.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Not progressing as hoped

    Manager Kevin Cash said Saturday that Walls (hip) isn't recovering as quickly as the Rays had originally hoped, MLB.com reports.

    Walls has yet to play this season while recovering from offseason hip surgery. He was expected to return by mid-April, but he has no clear timeline to come off the 10-day injured list at this point. Walls' ongoing absence should ensure continued playing time for Jose Caballero at shortstop.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Placed on IL

    The Rays placed Walls (hip) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

    Walls is working his way back from last October's surgery to repair a labral tear in his right hip. According to MLB.com, Walls has been hitting in the batting cage, fielding grounders and throwing during spring training, and he's set to meet with a doctor Monday to get a gauge of where he stands in his recovery from surgery. Since he'll need to go through a spring training-esque progression that likely includes a minor-league rehab assignment once he's cleared to intensify his baseball activities, Walls might not be ready to make his season debut until late April or early May.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Expected in mid-April

    Walls (hip) is expected to take the field within two or three weeks of the start of the regular season, MLB.com reports.

    Walls is recovering from hip surgery and won't be ready to take the field on Opening Day. There hasn't been much detailed information about his rehab, but he has resumed defensive work while taking swings off a tee. He's also begun running to test the range of motion in his hip. Assuming he remains on track, Walls shouldn't miss much time and will compete with Jose Caballero for the starting shortstop job once activated from the injured list.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Not expected for Opening Day

    Rays president of baseball operations Erik Neander revealed last week that it's "unlikely" Walls (hip) will be ready for Opening Day, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Walls underwent surgery in October to repair a labral tear in his right hip. Manager Kevin Cash had expressed optimism last month that the infielder would be ready for the start of the season, but Neander isn't as hopeful and also noted that, when Walls does make it back, he's unlikely to receive a full workload. Jose Caballero appears poised to be Tampa Bay's Opening Day shortstop.

  • Rays' Taylor Walls: Progressing with rehab

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that Walls (hip) is on track to be ready for the beginning of the 2024 season, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports.

    Walls underwent surgery in late October to repair a labral tear in his right hip and relieve discomfort caused by an impingement, but he has progressed well in the early stages of his rehab program and could resume workouts sometime in February. The 27-year-old racked up 22 stolen bases over 99 games in 2023, though he finished with a rough .201/.305/.333 overall slash line.
