    Rays ace Tyler Glasnow likely to have Tommy John surgery

    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.
