Rangers' Clayton Blackburn: Outrighted to Round Rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) was outrighted from the 40-man roster Friday and is expected to elect free agency.

Blackburn missed the entirety of the 2018 season after suffering a strained UCL in March. He wound up undergoing the dreaded Tommy John surgery in early April, which means that he likely won't be fully healed by the time spring training rolls around.

Rangers' Clayton Blackburn: Set for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery this week, Levi Weaver of The Athletic Dallas reports.

This is a tough break for Blackburn, who was originally hoping to avoid surgery in his recovery from a strained UCL. The issue wasn't improving, however, prompting the 25-year-old to opt for surgery. He'll now be sidelined for the remainder of the 2018 season and a good chunk of the 2019 campaign as he works his way back.

Rangers' Clayton Blackburn: Moved to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) was moved to the 60-day-disabled list Monday.

The move was made to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for new acquisition Tommy Joseph. Blackburn is expected to be out for well over 60 days as he's dealing with a strained UCL. He's at least a month away from throwing and will miss at least the first half of the season or possibly more if he ends up requiring elbow surgery.

Rangers' Clayton Blackburn: Dealing with UCL strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn was diagnosed with a strained UCL on Thursday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Blackburn was already expected to miss the first half of the season, but this development means he could miss even more time. The Rangers are planning to take a conservative approach for 4-to-6 weeks before restarting his throwing program. Surgery is still on the table, but it seems like they're planning on simply resting the injury for now.

Rangers' Clayton Blackburn: Expects to miss most of first half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) is not expected to return until after the All-Star break, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Blackburn underwent an MRI on Monday shortly after injuring his elbow, and although the results won't be read until Thursday, the initial prognosis isn't great. The team seems pretty confident he'll be held out for a significant chunk of time, but an exact return timetable has yet to be determined.
