Brent Honeywell (elbow) recovering well from May procedure

Rays GM Erik Neander says Brent Honeywell (elbow) is recovering well from a May decompression procedure.

Fantasy Impact

Honeywell, one of the best pitching prospects in baseball just a couple of seasons ago, has lost two straight years due to massive elbow issues. Now 25 years old, Honeywell is hoping to be healthy entering Spring Training in 2021. He isn't on the Rays' 60-man roster for this year.

Brent Honeywell Jr. undergoes elbow procedure on Wednesday

Brett Honeywell Jr. underwent a decompression procedure on his right ulnar nerve on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Honeywell underwent surgery to remove scar tissue from the area of the nerve. He will begin strength and mobility exercises on Monday in Port Charlotte. Honeywell missed all of 2018 after undergoing Tommy John surgery and 2019 due to a fractured elbow. It is unclear at this time when Honeywell will return, but there’s a good chance the 25-year-old could miss the 2020 season.

Brent Honeywell (elbow) throws another bullpen Tuesday

Brent Honeywell (elbow) threw his second bullpen of the spring on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Honeywell threw 15 pitches this time around. They were all fastballs. The 24-year-old has missed two straight seasons due to Tommy John surgery and a fractured elbow. It is impossible to know what to expect from the former prized prospect this year.

Brent Honeywell (elbow) throws first bullpen Friday

Brent Honeywell (elbow) threw his first bullpen of the spring on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Honeywell missed the entire 2018 season due to Tommy John surgery and then missed all of 2019 after fracturing his elbow. Still just 24 years old, Honeywell is a former elite pitching prospect who could debut with the Rays later this summer if all goes well. Obviously there will be some intense innings limits over the next couple of years, however.

Brent Honeywell (elbow) to begin throwing in January

Brent Honeywell (elbow) is scheduled to begin a throwing program in January.

Fantasy Impact

Honeywell, who was once an elite pitching prospect, is trying to come back from two major elbow surgeries over the past couple of years. In 2017 he underwent Tommy John surgery and then fractured his elbow after returning this past season. The 24-year-old is probably still a year out from major league action. 2020 will be about keeping him healthy and intact.
