On Tuesday, Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow suffered an oblique injury while throwing a bullpen session during spring training. Glasnow, who was acquired from the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Chris Archer trade last season, was expected to be a major part of the Rays’ starting rotation this season.

The injury occurred when Glasnow was throwing a pitch during the session. He immediately felt discomfort in his side and was forced to leave the field. He was later diagnosed with a strained right oblique.

The Rays have not yet given a timetable for Glasnow’s return, but the injury is expected to keep him out for at least a few weeks. Glasnow is expected to be re-evaluated in the coming days to determine the extent of the injury and how long he will be sidelined.

The Rays had high hopes for Glasnow this season, as he was expected to be a key part of their starting rotation. With Glasnow out, the Rays will have to rely on a combination of young pitchers and veterans to fill the void in the rotation.

The Rays are hoping Glasnow can make a speedy recovery and return to the mound soon. Until then, they will have to make do without their top pitcher.
