Blake Snell (elbow) has not been throwing off a mound

Blake Snell (elbow) has not been throwing off of a mound during the coronavirus pandemic.

Fantasy Impact

Snell was dealing with some elbow soreness during spring training so this appears to be precautionary. Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder says the 27-year-old will have "zero limitations" whenever the MLB season resumes.

Blake Snell says pay cut ‘not worth it’ to play in 2020

Blake Snell does not believe it’s worth playing baseball in 2020, the risk of contracting COVID-19 is “just not worth it.”

Fantasy Impact

Snell voice his displeasure while live steaming on twitch. He does not believe it’s worth playing in 2020, particularly if it involves a reduced salary. “If I’m gonna play I should be getting the money I signed to be getting paid,” said Snell. “ I should now be getting half of what I am getting paid because the season’s cut in half, on top of the 33 percent cut of the half that’s already there.” Snell voiced his concerns about health and safety. It remains to be seen if Snell does play in 2020 when (or if) the MLB season starts. The 27-year-old is fully recovered from a sore left elbow, but with his recent comments, Snell could possibly decline to play in 2020.

Blake Snell (elbow) to be ready for the start of the season

Blake Snell (elbow) says he will be ready for the start of the 2020 season.

Fantasy Impact

Snell received a cortisone shot in his elbow mid-way through spring training and struggled in his only Grapefruit League start since then, walking four of the five batters he faced. Snell says he still would've been ready for Opening Day had the season not gotten delayed. Regardless of whether or not that would've happened, one would figure he will wind up having enough time to get ready should the MLB season commence at some point this summer.

Blake Snell (elbow) will likely pitch in a sim game on Saturday

Blake Snell (elbow) will likely pitched in a simulated game on Saturday as opposed to starting against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Snell struggled mightily in his first start after receiving a cortisone shot in his elbow, allowing four runs while walking four and recording just one out. That was on Tuesday. He played catch Wednesday and felt okay afterwards, which is obviously good to hear. The former Cy Young winner remains on track for Opening Day but fantasy players will want to monitor how Saturday's sim game goes.

Fantasy Impact

Snell simply had no control in this one. The only good news is that he came out of the start healthy. He remains on track to be ready for Opening Day but obviously fantasy players would like to see better results in his next outing.
