Colin Poche underwent Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.
There's no guarantee we see Poche in 2021. He should return to Tampa's bullpen plans by the start of the 2022 season at the latest.
Colin Poche tore his UCL and is out for the season. He will get Tommy John surgery, which typically results in a 12-15 month recovery time for pitchers.
Poche will pitch, at the earliest, in the dog days of 2021. Poche was expected to be a crucial part of the Rays' bullpen, but this is more of a blow to the Rays than to fantasy owners. Expect Nick Anderson, Diego Castillo, and Jose Alvarado to continue fighting for saves.
Colin Poche struck out two over a scoreless inning of work on Saturday to record his fourth hold of the spring.
Obviously holds are a silly stat to get excited about during Grapefruit League games, but this should come as a reminder that Poche is interesting in fantasy leagues using that category. The lefty recorded 17 of them during the regular season last year.
Colin Poche earned the first save of his big league career on Friday, retiring all three hitters that he faced to preserve a two-run lead against the Blue Jays.
Poche has worked as a middle reliever this season and overall has three blown saves with a 6.46 ERA. The 25-year-old reliever probably won't see many opportunities with Diego Garcia and Emilio Pagan ahead of him.
