SP - TB - IL60
Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery next week, according to ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan.
Passan adds "there remains a small chance doctors will see a path toward him rehabbing his partially torn UCL, the expectation is that Glasnow needs an elbow procedure." This is the worst case scenario for fantasy managers in redraft and dynasty leagues as Glasnow will now miss the rest of the 2021 season and likely all or most of the 2022 season.
Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow (elbow) played light catch on Thursday.
Glasnow was transferred to the 60-day injured list in June after being diagnosed with a partial UCL tear and flexor strain. He currently has no timetable for a return. It’s an encouraging sign to see the Rays right-hander play light catch. A timeline for his return should be more clearer once he’s able to ramp up his throwing. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Glasnow.

Glasnow was recently diagnosed with a partial UCL tear and a flexor strain. It's going to be a while before he's back in action, and Glasnow might wind up needing season-ending surgery. Fantasy managers should keep him stashed if there's an open IL spot on their roster, but the amount of injuries could make doing so very difficult.

It’s unclear at this time if Glasnow will undergo surgery or elect to rest his injured elbow. Stay tuned.
