Rays ace Tyler Glasnow likely to have Tommy John surgery

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays ace Tyler Glasnow is expecting to get a recommendation from doctors next week to have Tommy John surgery that would keep him out the rest of this season and possibly next year.

Glasnow has been taking part in a rehab program that included playing catch since going on the injured list June 15 in an attempt to avoid surgery.

The Rays originally didn’t completely rule out Glasnow returning in time to help down the stretch run as the AL champions look to reach the World Series again.

However, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said before Saturday night’s game against Boston that he is not surprised by the development.

“I personally expected that,” Cash said. “We know Glasnow really well. He’s going to exhaust every avenue trying to avoid that because he wanted to come back and contribute. He’s just a big part of our club, but I think there’s still more to be determined. I think it’s very fair that’s where it’s heading.”

Glasnow was examined on Friday, at which time he got on a mound and felt discomfort while throwing. He is scheduled to meet with doctors again on Tuesday.

The 6-foot-8 Glasnow went 5-2 with a 2.66 ERA in 14 starts this season.

Tampa Bay has 14 pitchers on the injured list.

Veteran right-hander Chris Archer, sidelined by right forearm tightness, is currently on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham and could be ready to join the rotation in a couple of weeks.

Several relievers, including Collin McHugh (right arm fatigue), Nick Anderson (right elbow strain), and Ryan Thompson (right shoulder inflammation), are expected back this season.

Usain Bolt Offers Sha’Carri Richardson Some Tough Advice Following Multiple Meet Losses

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is offering some words of wisdom to rising track star Sha’Carri Richardson following the young athlete’s fall from grace.

During a recent interview with the New York Post, the eight-time Olympic gold medalist was asked about the 21-year-old whose stellar performance in the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials at the new Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, last June was quickly overshadowed by a series of incidents, including a failed drug test, which subsequently got her disqualified from the Tokyo games entirely.  

Bolt told the media outlet that the best thing the Texas native can do now is stop talking and focus on what really matters. “I would tell Sha’Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much…,” he explained. A much speculated lack of media experience ultimately led to a dim in her once fiery fan support. Many have expressed belief that the young star’s trash talk proved damaging to her brand. 

“If you talk that big talk you have to back it up,” Bolt continued. The Jamaican-born sprinting phenom added, “So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back, do it and then talk about it.”

On Aug. 21, Richardson finished in last place in the women’s 100 meters as Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Herah dominated the race. Shortly afterward, an online feud seemingly unraveled between Richardson and Team Jamaican.

Bolt told the outlet he and his fellow Jamaican athletes were not impressed by Richardson’s attitude, considering a rivalry between American and Jamaican sprinters that picked up some steam dating back to at least 2012. 

“Jamaicans were vexed because she was talking a lot of s–t before the actual race, it is just one of those things,” he explained. “Jamaicans don’t like when people talk s–t about us because we are a very proud people. So if you talk about us we are gonna want you to back it up. It definitely gave those women the extra push [to win.]” 

Richardson has had a few incidents with members of the Caribbean nation. She was offered an all-expenses-paid trip to Jamaica by a Jamaican hotel owner, following her loss to Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who finished second in the Prefontaine race. Many people online found the gesture to be disingenuous.
