Rays claim Whitley on waivers

The Tampa Bay Rays have claimed relief pitcher Chase Whitley on waivers from the New York Yankees., at least according to the following tweet:

Whitley was called up from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on April 27 and made his first start of the season on the next day. Elbow pain shortened his season as he underwent Tommy John Surgery.

Whitley debuted with the Yankees on May 15, 2014. In a game vs the Mets’ chase-whitleyJacob deGrom, Whitley pitched 4.2 innings and got the no-decision.

In 2010, Whitley debuted in the Yankees’ organization with a relief appearance with the Staten Island Yankees (A Short Season, New York-Penn League). That season he was the team’s closer with an ERA of 1.31 and fifteen saves.

In parts of two seasons with the Yankees, Whitley posted a 5.02 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, he struck out 76 batters, walked 23 and kept his opponents to a batting average of .298.

Since he pitched through elbow pain in 2015, his numbers may be tainted.
