Rays' Brent Honeywell: Optimistic following latest setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell, who underwent a decompression procedure on his right elbow Wednesday, is reportedly in good spirits and aiming to throw off a mound by fall, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 25-year-old right-hander has now undergone three different operations on his throwing elbow since last appearing in a game back in September 2017. While that is undeniably discouraging, Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder, who'd been reviewing video of the multiple bullpen sessions Honeywell was throwing weekly during the current shutdown, reported on a Zoom media call Friday that Honeywell's attitude following the latest setback has been nothing but positive. Snyder added Honeywell's focus in the immediate future will be regaining range of motion, extension and strength while aiming for a return in 2021. "I'm hopeful, as much as anything, this will be the last hiccup that he's going to have to go through," Snyder said. "He's been through a lot, and he's certainly worked his tail off to get back to where he is.''

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Another elbow procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell underwent a decompression procedure on his right ulnar nerve Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

The surgery, which was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, was to remove scar tissue from the area of the nerve. Honeywell is scheduled to begin strength and mobility exercises Monday in Port Charlotte. He is without a timetable to return to the mound, and given the fact he was coming back from a multi-year absence anyway, it is unlikely we see Honeywell pitching in the majors at any point in 2020.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Still unlikely to return in '20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow), who was in the midst of a throwing program before spring training was suspended, is still unlikely to make a return at any point during a 2020 season, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander last pitched in 2017 due to multiple injuries, so he was already slated for a robust rehabilitation program before any thoughts of a 2020 return were seriously contemplated. Honeywell was on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule of bullpen sessions when spring training was suspended, and he's presumably still playing catch on his own at the moment. However, Toribio notes the Rays will need to see Honeywell prove his health at Triple-A Durham before signing off on a return, and with the possibility the minor-league season is canceled outright, that opportunity may not ever be there this year. Additionally, the limitations brought about by current conditions rob Honeywell of the chance to face live hitters at the moment, slowing down the overall pace of his recovery in the process.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Continuing bullpen sessions for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) will continue to throw two bullpen sessions per week as long as the Rays are allowed to keep their spring training facility open, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. "Honeywell is obviously a unique case because he's coming back from an injury," manager Kevin Cash said. "I think the best thing we can do is keep his arm in shape."

The rehabbing right-hander is one of the players that could stand to particularly benefit from the Rays keeping their facility accessible during the suspension of Grapefruit League play, as the consistent work is key to building the strength back up in his previously fractured elbow. Honeywell had been optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday in a procedural move, but he was already due to physically remain in Florida until the start of the minor-league season.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Honeywell (elbow) to Triple-A Durham on Monday.

After dazzling between stops at Double-A and Triple-A in 2017, Honeywell looked primed to make his Rays debut early in 2018, but the Tommy John surgery he required that spring has since pushed back his arrival to the big leagues. Honeywell recovered from that procedure by last summer, but he never appeared in affiliated ball in 2019 after suffering a fractured bone in the same elbow that required another procedure. The righty is still in rehab mode and has yet to resume facing hitters, so he'll likely begin the season on Durham's 7-day injured list.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Continues with bullpen sessions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) completed a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

It's Honeywell's third bullpen session this spring as he continues to build up his arm strength after June elbow surgery. The 24-year-old hasn't seen game action since 2017 with Triple-A Durham due to injury issues, so the Rays figure to remain cautious and avoid rushing him back.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Throws another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) threw his second bullpen session of the spring Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As with his first session Friday, Honeywell threw just 15 pitches, all of which were fastballs. The 24-year-old hasn't thrown a competitive pitch since 2017, having missed the last two seasons due to a pair of elbow surgeries, but he was considered one of the top pitching prospects in the game prior to his injuries. He has little left to prove at the Triple-A level, having posted a 3.64 ERA and a 29.1 percent strikeout rate in 24 starts there for Durham back in 2017, but he'll probably spend some time in the minors early in the season as he works his way back into shape.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) completed a 15-pitch bullpen session Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Honeywell resumed throwing in January and has now thrown his first bullpen session since undergoing Tommy John surgery in February 2018 and additional elbow surgery in June 2019. The 24-year-old last saw game action at Triple-A Durham in 2017 and compiled a 3.64 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 152:31 K:BB over 123.2 innings. There's a real chance he makes his major-league debut this season if he can return to full strength.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) has resumed throwing, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Honeywell was on the cusp of the big leagues after posting a 3.64 ERA and a 29.1 percent strikeout rate in 24 starts for Triple-A Durham back in 2017. He hasn't thrown a competitive pitch since then, however, as he missed 2018 due to Tommy John surgery and missed 2019 due to nerve irritation and a fractured elbow. He was quite a highly rated prospect prior to his injuries and could certainly make a significant impact if he's able to make his big-league debut this season, but the injury problems obviously add quite a lot of risk.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: To start throwing in January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) will start throwing in January, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

He hasn't pitched in a game for two full seasons, after suffering a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. The Rays remain optimistic that Honeywell will be a part of the long-term pitching staff, but they will be cautious with him in 2020. Honeywell will open the year in the minors or in extended spring training.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) underwent successful surgery Monday, and it was determined during the procedure that his UCL was not damaged, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

This is positive news for Honeywell, who's expected to begin throwing again in January if everything goes according to plan. He hasn't pitched since the 2017 season at Triple-A, where he posted a 3.64 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 152:31 K:BB over 123.2 innings.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell fractured a bone in his elbow while throwing a bullpen session Saturday and will miss the rest of the season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

This is another tough blow for Honeywell, who appeared ready for prime time late in 2017 before suffering a torn UCL in spring training 2018. He will go under the knife Monday, and during the procedure doctors will check on the integrity of his Tommy John repair. Depending on what's found in the elbow, Honeywell's availability for the start of the 2020 season could be impacted.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Cleared to play catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) was cleared to play catch Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell had been shut down since mid-April due to nerve irritation. He'll throw from 60-to-75 feet for a few days before being re-evaluated Monday.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Could throw next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) will rest for another week before potentially resuming throwing, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell has been shut down since mid-April due to a nerve issue as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. Given the length of his absence, he'll need to build up for quite a while before returning to game action.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Nerve irritation confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) is battling nerve irritation, a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell originally would have been expected to return around this time following Tommy John surgery in February of 2018 but now faces an unclear timetable following this setback. He'll avoid throwing for a week and will then be re-evaluated Monday, at which point a clearer picture could emerge.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Shut down again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) was shut down from throwing Tuesday due to potential nerve issue in his upper arm, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell recently resumed playing catch after being shut down because of right elbow soreness in mid-April, and is now dealing with a possible nerve issue. The 24-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in February 2018 and originally planned a mid-summer return, but he's now facing an uncertain timetable.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Resumes playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) has resumed playing catch but has not yet been cleared to resume throwing off a mound, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell has been working his way back from Tommy John surgery but suffered a setback after experiencing soreness following an extended-spring outing in mid-April. It remains unclear when he's expected to get back on the mound.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Shut down with sore elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell will be shut down for at least a few days after experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired elbow, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He threw an inning in an extended spring training game over the weekend and was scheduled to throw again Thursday, but those plans were nixed due to this setback. Honeywell, who underwent Tommy John surgery in February of 2018, was trending toward a return to game action sometime in late May, but that date can now be pushed back at least a week or two.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Looks good in extended spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) threw an inning in an extended spring game in Port Charlotte on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell reportedly got through his outing in strong fashion, clocking between 91 and 94 mph through his one frame. The outing marked his first time back on the bump since February 2018 Tommy John surgery. Although he still remains some time away from being considered for activation, the 24-year-old right-hander appears to be on the right track in his recovery.

Rays' Brent Honeywell: Returns to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Honeywell (elbow) will pitch one inning or 25 pitches in an extended spring game Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Honeywell will take the hill in a live game for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in February of 2018. He's expected to remain on the injured list for at least another month before the Rays even consider calling him up to the major leagues.
