Shane Baz to undergo Tommy John surgery

Shane Baz will undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2023 season.

Fantasy Impact

This is brutal news for the 23-year-old who still throwing in late August and seemingly making good progress. He will hope to be ready for the 2024 season. He remains a promising prospect in dynasty formats but will have a long road before establishing himself as the fantasy ace many thought he could be.

Shane Baz (elbow) out for season

Shane Baz (elbow) will not return to pitch in games this season.

Fantasy Impact

There have not been any setbacks and Baz's recovery is said to be going good but the Rays will not push it with their young starter. He should be back and ready to go for the start of 2023 and remains a promising prospect in both dynasty and redraft. He ends the season with a 5.00 ERA and 10 K/9 through 27 innings.

Shane Baz to start throwing Monday

Shane Baz is scheduled to begin a throwing program Monday and would like to pitch again this season.

Fantasy Impact

Baz has been out of action since July 14th with a right elbow sprain. The 23-year-old has been limited to six games this season due to a few stints on the IL. Baz admits the decision to pitch again may not be his, but that he is working to get back healthy in enough time to hopefully get back into games this season.

Shane Baz (elbow) limited to plyometric exercises for two weeks

Shane Baz (elbow) will be limited to plyometric exercises for the next two weeks. He will not throw until the end of August at the earliest.

Fantasy Impact

The Rays are clearly being careful with their young starter, and it's starting to look like we won't see him again this season. He has shown improvement through his most recent elbow scan, but not enough for the Rays to rush into anything. There's still a chance the Rays opt to bring him back as a reliever for the playoffs, but neither of those options will help much in the world of fantasy.

Shane Baz likely to miss eight weeks on IL

Shane Baz is now looking likely to miss eight weeks due to a right elbow strain after it was initially assumed he would miss only four weeks.

Fantasy Impact

The news gets worse for Baz, as he is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks in a best-case scenario and will likely be out longer. The extended timeline with a 'sprain' usually indicates that he has a torn ligament in his elbow and will require surgery. It's a tough blow for the Rays and fantasy owners who should plan to be without Baz for the rest of the season.
