Glasnow (elbow) will be shut down for four weeks while he receives treatment, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Manager Kevin Cash seemed encouraged by the latest update for the Rays' ace right-hander, as it looks like Glasnow could resume throwing in a month's time. If that timeline holds, he'd need about four more weeks to get all the way stretched out before returning to the rotation. Obviously, a lot could take place between now and mid-July, but given this update, a mid-to-late August return is not out of the question for the 27-year-old.
Glasnow (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Glasnow's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural after he recently underwent an MRI that revealed a partial UCL tear as well as a flexor strain in his right elbow. The right-hander is currently planning to rest rather than undergoing a surgical procedure, but he'll still miss extended time due to the injury.
Glasnow was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday after an MRI revealed a partial UCL tear as well as a flexor strain in his right elbow, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
UCL tears frequently lead to Tommy John surgery, though the plan for now is for Glasnow to rest rather than undergo a surgical procedure. The timing of the injury makes that a sensible plan for the Rays, as undergoing the surgery now would already have a fairly high chance of ruling their ace out for all of next year, so the team can afford to wait a few months to see how rest and rehab goes without costing him any more games. The injury is a huge blow to Tampa Bay and to those with Glasnow on their fantasy teams, as the righty owns a dominant 2.66 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 36.2 percent strikeout rate through 14 starts.
Glasnow (elbow) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Glasnow was diagnosed with right elbow inflammation when he was pulled after the fourth inning of his start Monday against the White Sox. Though Glasnow noted after the game that he didn't feel any "crazy pain" in his elbow before departing, the Rays will send him in for an MRI to ensure he's not dealing with a more significant injury that anticipated. Glasnow tentatively lines up to make his next start Saturday in Seattle.
Glasnow left Monday's start against Chicago due to right elbow inflammation, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
This is concerning news for Tampa Bay's top hurler, though it remains unclear if he'll require a trip to the injured list. The team should know more about a timetable for his return after further evaluation.
Glasnow was removed from Monday's game against the White Sox after just 53 pitches, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
The team has yet to disclose an injury, but Glasnow was spotted flexing and stretching out his right arm before being removed. It's also concerning that he was shut down for the night after just four innings of work. The Rays likely won't offer up an explanation until after the contest.
Glasnow (5-2) allowed one earned run on six hits and a walk while striking out 11 across seven innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Nationals.
Glasnow allowed a run in the third inning, but he dominated the Nationals otherwise, inducing an exceptional 27 swinging strikes on 114 total pitches while posting double-digit strikeouts for the seventh time in 13 starts this season. Also impressive has been Glasnow's ability to work deep into games, as he's worked at least seven innings in four of his last five outings. For the season, Glasnow has a 2.57 ERA with 117 strikeouts across 84 total frames.
Glasnow will start Tuesday against the Nationals instead of Sunday against the Rangers, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Glasnow is not dealing with any injury, but the Rays are just attempting to manage his workload. The move should also allow another day of rest for Ryan Yarbrough, who threw a complete game Thursday. Sunday will be a bullpen game for the Rays, with the starter yet to be announced.
Glasnow allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight across seven innings Tuesday against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.

The Jays jumped on Glasnow for four runs through the first three innings, but the Rays were able to tie it up after he exited and get the right-hander off the hook for the loss. The two strikeouts were his lowest total of the year by far -- he hadn't fanned fewer than seven in any of his previous nine outings -- while the five earned runs tied his season high. Despite the speed bump, Glasnow will take a 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 87:21 K:BB through 62 innings into his next outing.

Still, he's sporting a strong 2.06 ERA and 64:15 K:BB. Glasnow is projected to face the Athletics on the road this weekend.

He lines up to make his next start at home against the Athletics on Wednesday.

Glasnow (1-0) picked up the win Monday, allowing two hits and a walk over 7.2 scoreless innings while striking out a career-high 14 in a 1-0 victory over the Rangers.
Per Adam Berry of MLB.com, the right-hander produced a stunning 27 swings and misses, the most of any Tampa Bay hurler in a game since pitch tracking began in 2008, and Glasnow's 7.2 innings was also a career high.

In what turned into a pitcher's duel with Sandy Alcantara, Glasnow was nothing short of brilliant in his first start of the year. The 27-year-old had a new weapon on display, as he's added a slider into his arsenal. In fact, he threw that newly acquired pitch 26 times while exceeding 100 mph with his fastball. The right-hander, who finished spring action with a remarkable 27:7 K:BB across 14.2 innings, will take the mound again Tuesday at Boston.
