Pirates' Chris Archer (neck, shoulder) out until 2021

Pittsburgh Pirates starting pitcher Chris Archer (neck, shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday to "relieve symptoms of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome."

What It Means:

Archer will not be available until the 2021 season. The issue may help explain why Archer recorded an ERA above 5.00 last year for the first time in his career. The 31-year-old right-hander reported discomfort in his right neck/shoulder area in March during spring training. He is 6-12 with a 4.92 ERA in 33 starts since being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays at the 2018 trade deadline.

Archer posted a 5.19 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with a 27.2 strikeout percentage in 119 2/3 innings last season.

Rays expect 'zero limitations' for Blake Snell (elbow) during future spring training

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell has not thrown off the mound since spring training concluded in March.

What It Means:

According to Tampa Bay's pitching coach Kyle Snyder, the Rays will be "cautious" with Snell but remain optimistic the left-hander will have "zero limitations" whenever spring training restarts. "“There’s been a level of consistency throughout all these guys,’’ said Synder when asked about his plan for his pitchers. “It’s going to come down to gauging where each of them are before they really hit the gas pedal."

Expect Snell to work his way back while the Rays' facilities are open for three-day-a-week sessions. For the upcoming season, numberFire's models project Snell for a 3.44 ERA and 225 strikeouts in 170 innings pitched.

Yankees' Aaron Hicks progressing in his rehab from Tommy John surgery

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Hicks is currently taking dry swings and doing a throwing program, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

What It Means:

Hicks underwent Tommy John Surgery late in October after the Yankees were eliminated in the ALCS by the Houston Astros (Hicks played a pivotal role in forcing a Game 6). He began a throwing program in late March after Spring Training was canceled due to the coronavirus, and it seems as though he's on track to play at some point if the MLB returns, with Cashman calling him a "legit option" to man center field this summer.

In 59 games last season, Hicks hit for a .235/.325/.443 slash line 12 home runs and 36 RBI.

James Paxton (back) throwing simulated innings in preparation for Yankees' season

New York Yankees starting pitcher James Paxton has progressed in his rehabilitation process enough that he's been able to pitch some simulated innings, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

What It Means:

Paxton underwent a microscopic lumbar discectomy on February 5 to remove a cyst near his spine. The original time frame for a full recovery was 3-4 months, and it seems as though he's on track to meet that. However, the MLB season never started due to the coronavirus, and even if baseball were to come back this season, it wouldn't be until at least July. So it seems as though Paxton won't miss any time after surgery, which would be a fortunate break for the Yankees.

In 150.2 innings across 29 starts last season, Paxton had a 3.82 ERA with 186 strikeouts and a 1.28 WHIP.

Yankees' Aaron Judge (rib) wouldn't have been ready until "summertime"

New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge will not be ready for MLB action until the "summertime," according to general manager Brian Cashman.

What It Means:

Judge is dealing with a cracked rib, which was revealed at Spring Training to have occurred late in the 2019 season. Given the MLB's delayed opening due to coronavirus (and while a deal is on the table for the players to sign, it doesn't seem as though an end is necessarily near in sight), it may not matter at all. But had the season started on time, it seems as though the Yankees could have been without their star right fielder for an extended period of time.

In 102 games last season, Judge hit for a .272/.381/.540 slash line with 27 home runs and 55 RBI.
