Tampa Bay Rays right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow suffered an oblique injury during a bullpen session Monday and seems certain to miss time, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Glasnow made just two regular-season appearances for the Rays in 2022 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2021. He also made a promising scoreless start in the AL Wild Card Series.
Before getting the injured in 2021, Glasnow was one of baseball’s pitchers, posting a 2.66 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 123 strikeouts across 88 innings in the first half of the season.
The Rays were expecting Glasnow to be a key part of the team’s rotation this season. He was penciled in as the number two guy behind ace Shane McClanahan.
Depending on the severity of the injury the Rays could be without Glasnow for significant time. An oblique injury could take months to recover from.
Without Glasnow, Drew Rasmussen, Jeffrey Springs and Zach Eflin are the 2-4 starters.
