Glasnow (forearm) was shut down for two more weeks Monday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Glasnow suffered a setback in late June and was shut down for three weeks at that time. After a checkup and follow-up MRI, his return to throwing has been delayed further. He's been out since May 10, so he'll require a long time to build his arm strength back up, putting his availability to pitch at any point this season in doubt.
Glasnow (forearm) is scheduled to meet with a doctor next week before the Rays decide on the next step in his rehab program, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. If the doctor determines during the checkup that Glasnow's strained right forearm is healing as anticipated, the 25-year-old could be cleared to resume a throwing program next week in a best-case scenario. Even if that's the case, Glasnow -- who has been on the shelf since mid-May -- would likely need around a month to condition his arm for a starter-level workload. Don't expect Glasnow to pitch for the Rays until late August at the earliest.
Glasnow (forearm) said Sunday that he's optimistic he'll pitch again this season after receiving positive reports following his most recent round of medical tests, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Glasnow has been shut down since May 11 with a right forearm strain and recently experienced a setback during a throwing session earlier this month. The Rays will keep Glasnow on a no-throw program for the next two weeks, but the right-hander suggested that doctors have told him his UCL "looks really good" and that he'll merely need extra rest rather than surgery to address the lingering injury. Since he'll need time to build his arm back up after an extended layoff, Glasnow probably won't be ready to return from the 60-day injured list until around mid-August in a best-case scenario.
Glasnow (forearm) suffered a setback and will be shut down for three weeks, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports. Glasnow apparently felt some discomfort while throwing in Oakland over the weekend, and a subsequent MRI revealed right flexor inflammation. This is a tough blow for the right-hander, who was originally hoping to be back around the All-Star break. Glasnow will be reevaluated in three weeks, at which point a new timetable for his return will hopefully emerge.
Glasnow (forearm) played catch Sunday and is set to throw a full bullpen during the team's upcoming three-game series in Minnesota, John Hickey of MLB.com reports. Glasnow had most recently thrown a successful bullpen session Tuesday, and his throwing regimen Sunday was apparently intended to serve as a means of keeping his arm active ahead of what will be his third bullpen since going on the injured list May 11. The right-hander has only thrown fastballs over his first two bullpens, but he's expected to utilize his full arsenal in his upcoming session.
