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.
