The Rays on Friday placed reliever Pete Fairbanks on the 10-day injured list with a right rotator cuff strain, reinstated Brett Phillips from the IL, selected Hunter Strickland from the alternate training site and designated catcher Joseph Odom for assignment.

The Fairbanks news is another tough break for the Rays’ bullpen, which is already without Chaz Roe (right shoulder strain), high-leverage reliever Nick Anderson (right elbow tear) and lefty Ryan Sherriff (restricted list).

Phillips opened the season on the IL after after being diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain in his left hamstring.
