Tyler Glasnow to be shut down three weeks with flexor inflammation

Tyler Glasnow

Tyler Glasnow’s absence from the Tampa Bay Rays will continue.

Glasnow has been out since May 10 after leaving a start against the Yankees due to right forearm tightness. He was originally diagnosed with a strain and expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Glasnow began a throwing program earlier this month and had progressed to throwing bullpens, but he suffered a setback recently and underwent an MRI. The MRI revealed flexor inflammation, which has led to the young pitcher being shut down three weeks.

Glasnow’s continued absence is a major blow for the Rays. Acquired by the Rays in the Chris Archer trade, Glasnow found his top form this season and was 6-0 with an MLB-best 1.47 ERA at the time of his injury.
