Looking like a lost cause in Pittsburgh, Glasnow was taking a seismic leap into ace territory with the Rays. He went 6-1 with a 1.86 ERA, 55 Ks, and nine BBs in eight starts before suffering a forearm strain that was supposed to sideline him four-to-six weeks. The Rays transferred him to the 60-day IL, and he has suffered a setback in late June weeks before his potential return. He's now likely to at best return as a reliever or opener in September, meaning he's droppable in all redraft leagues.

The Rays were already taking their time with Glasnow then he had a setback so his return is still up in the air. It could happen in August, or perhaps he will be shut down for the season. You can't drop him yet just in case, however, as he would deliver top 15 SP numbers the moment he returns.

Glasnow was in the midst of a massive breakout season before he hit the injured list with a forearm strain. He is aiming for a return in mid-July and could be a true difference-maker for fantasy owners in the second half of the season.
