ST. PETERSBURG (WDAE) -- The Tampa Bay Rays got encouraging news on the forearm of pitcher Tyler Glasnow Saturday after the right-hander had an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.
The team said that the test showed Glasnow had suffered a mild forearm strain, and would be shut down from throwing for 7-10 days before being evaluated again.
Based on the findings, Glasnow is expected to miss between four and six weeks, but should be able to be built back up to start this season.
Glasnow suffered his first loss of 2019 in Friday's defeat at the hands of the New York Yankees.
To take his place on the active roster, infielder Andrew Velazquez has been recalled from Triple-A Durham.
