  • McKay has been shut down from throwing for a few days due to renewed soreness in his shoulder, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. McKay's recovery from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in November hasn't been ideal, as he was placed on the 60-day injured list to begin the season and is still dealing with some soreness. The 26-year-old can't be activated from the injured list until at least early June, but it's unclear if he'll be ready to go by that point.

  • Tampa Bay recalled McKay from Triple-A Durham on Thursday and placed him on the 60-day injured list, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. The team didn't provide a specific explanation behind McKay's placement on the IL, but he presumably needs additional time to advance through his throwing program while he works his way back from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, which he underwent last November. Solondz reported March 17 that McKay considered himself fully healthy at the start of spring training, but he never appeared in any Grapefruit League games before being optioned to the minors. It's unclear if McKay suffered a setback at some point, or if the Rays were merely withholding the lefty from game action as a matter of caution.

  • McKay was optioned to minor-league camp Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. McKay underwent thoracic outlet surgery in November, though he reported to camp fully healthy. He didn't enter a game with the big-league club in spring training, and he will likely need a significant ramp up period after tallying only 12.2 innings and 25 plate appearances in 2021.

  • McKay (shoulder/illness) arrived at camp Thursday and is considered fully healthy, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. McKay's arrival at camp was delayed due to COVID-19 protocols, and his status was further up in the air thanks to his November thoracic outlet surgery. He reportedly threw multiple bullpens prior to camp, however, so recovery from that procedure seems to be going well. A healthy season could allow the 2017 fourth-overall pick to finally showcase his potential, but it's difficult to count on good health for a player who's thrown a total of just 12.2 innings over the last two years while battling shoulder and elbow issues.

  • McKay (shoulder) will be delayed to start camp after failing to pass COVID-19 intake testing, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. It's unclear if McKay tested positive for the virus himself and will miss an extended period, or if he's merely sidelined due to contact tracing. In either case, that's not the only issue he's dealing with, as he underwent thoracic outlet surgery in November and could miss time in camp while recovering.
