Brendan McKay faces live hitters for first time since 2022

Tampa Bays pitcher Brendan McKay (elbow) has faced live hitters for the first time since 2022.

Fantasy Impact

Elbow issues have destroyed the development of the former fourth-overall pick who hasn't appeared in the big league since 2019. The left-hander has impressed so far early in spring, however, and at 28 years old still has time to blossom into a big-league regular.

Brendan McKay outrighted to Triple-A

Brendan McKay cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A by Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact

McKay was one of the top prospects in baseball at one point. He also put together a successful debut in 2019 where he pitched 49 innings. Injuries have limited McKay who is somehow still prospect eligible. McKay had Tommy John surgery in September and will miss all of 2023.

Brendan McKay feeling some shoulder discomfort

Rays prospect LHP Brendan McKay felt some shoulder discomfort after appearing in a Florida Complex League game.

Fantasy Impact

Rays manager Kevin Cash is hopeful that this is "just kind of scar tissue adjusting a little bit." It certainly isn't an ideal development considering McKay is rehabbing labrum surgery, but hopefully it isn't a serious setback. McKay is borderline roster-worthy in dynasty leagues as he continues to battle injuries.

Brendan McKay (shoulder) to start throwing off the mound in late-March

Brendan McKay (shoulder) expects to resume throwing off a mound by the end of March.

Fantasy Impact

McKay continues to recover from August surgery on his left shoulder and will start throwing off a mound by the end of March. He’s considered a two-way player and has been taking batting practice during Spring Training. It is unclear at this time if McKay will be ready by Opening Day.

The Rays activated LHP Brendan McKay from the COVID-19 IL and optioned him to their alternate training site.

Fantasy Impact

It's a procedural move. The top prospect is currently out for the season following labrum surgery.
