Glasnow makes good progress in recovery
Tyler Glasnow is yet to come back to play for the Tampa Bay Rays after his injury back in June. Coach Kevin Cash claimed that the star is getting even better and aims to make a return by August. This means a lot for the club as they gear up for a huge push in the playoffs soon.
Cash has shared a piece of good news about the Rays’ injured ace and believes that there is a chance for Tyler to come back better than ever. After all, there is still a lot of time left for the team to wait for him to get to his top form once more.
Tyler left his June 14 start in Chicago and was held back from making throws for about four weeks now. It is early to say how the star’s progress will go on, but he did pick up a baseball and made a good job of throwing for a few sessions - which Cash says is a great sight for him.
‘For me, that's a really good sign’, the coach said. ‘If we're signing off that he can get a ball and get going and let's see how it feels, we should be thrilled with that’.
Tyler is keen to get back sooner than later. His arm is getting better than ever. The 60-day injury list should keep him from overworking, but he is sure that he will be back long before the playoffs begin.
Glasnow was one of the best pitchers in the Majors before his injury. He posted a 2.66 ERA with 123 strikeouts in 88 innings over 14 starts. He is still second on the Rays with 2.2 WAR. The rest of Tampa Bay has held on well to stay in the fight so far.
Cash is glad to have a roster that has a lot of great arms as it gives them depth. They never wanted this setback with Glasnow, but now they are thriving without him and the star is keen to get back stronger than ever, so it should count for something this time.
Tyler is far from his comeback, but has done some good work as well. It is a relief that he is getting better at this point in time.
