Rays' Blake Snell (elbow) to practice Tuesday

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Blake Snell is on track to play catch on Tuesday, per manager Kevin Cash.

What It Means:

Snell felt soreness in his elbow near where he had bone chips removed last season, but received a cortisone shot last week. The Rays won't rush the 2018 American League Cy Young award winner back, but this is a positive sign that he is progressing through the recovery process.

numberFire's projections for the 2020 season have Snell pitching a 3.44 ERA, with 225 strikeouts to 62 walks, as well as 12 wins. Assuming he is healthy, Snell should still go in the first few rounds of fantasy drafts this year.
