Tyler Glasnow could be out until 2023 due to Tommy John surgery

Tyler Glasnow

MLB may be without one of its top young pitchers for a while.

Tyler Glasnow suffered a torn UCL, we learned in mid-June. The injury was expected to keep him out indefinitely. Now, reports are saying the Tampa Bay Rays pitcher likely needs Tommy John surgery. If he undergoes such a surgery, he will likely be out until 2023.

That’s a real bummer for Rays fans and fans who enjoy his pitching.

Glasnow, 27, got off to a rough start to his career with the Pirates. But he really started to put it all together and become a top pitcher the last three seasons with the Rays. He has posted a 17-9 record with a 3.10 ERA for Tampa Bay, along with a whopping 12.2 strikeouts per game.

His absence will be a big loss and could also hurt his free agent value. He is set to become a free agent in 2024.
