  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Throwing from 90 feet

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Friday that McClanahan (elbow) is "progressing well" and has ramped up his throwing off flat ground to 90 feet, MLB.com reports.

    The left-hander is still in the early stages of his recovery from his second career Tommy John surgery, which he underwent Aug. 21, 2023. The Rays are preparing for McClanahan to miss the entire 2024 season, though a return in September hasn't been completely discounted if the rehab process goes smoothly for the 27-year-old southpaw.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Placed on 60-day IL

    The Rays placed McClanahan (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Tampa Bay needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Phil Maton. McClanahan will be sidelined until 2025 while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Avoids arbitration

    McClanahan (elbow) signed a two-year, $7.2 million contract with the Rays on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    McClanahan underwent Tommy John surgery in August, making it unlikely he pitches at all in 2024. However, if the 26-year-old lefty is able to return this season, he would add an extra $120,000 to his 2025 salary for every start he makes.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Will undergo Tommy John surgery

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that McClanahan (forearm) will undergo Tommy John surgery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    McClanahan had already been ruled out for the rest of 2023, but a Tommy John procedure will likely keep him out for all of 2024 as well. The 26-year-old southpaw landed on the injured list Aug. 3 and will undergo surgery sometime next week. He finishes 2023 with a 3.29 ERA and 1.18 WHIP alongside a 121:41 K:BB ratio through 115 innings.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Officially shut down for season

    McClanahan's (forearm) season is officially done, as he was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    McClanahan hit the injured list in early August with tightness in his left forearm, and it's since become clear that the injury is a serious one. Surgery is reportedly a possibility, and even if McClanahan can avoid it, he won't be back on a major-league mound until next year. The move creates space for Josh Fleming (elbow) to return from his own stay on the 60-day IL.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Likely done for season

    Rays manager Kevin Cash said Tuesday that McClanahan (forearm) is "highly unlikely" to pitch again this season, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    McClanahan landed on the 15-day injured list last week due to left forearm tightness and he has since visited a number of specialists in an attempt to get to the root of the issue. Cash told reporters that surgery is a possibility for the 26-year-old ace, who had pitched to an 11-2 record, 3.29 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 121:41 K:BB through 115 innings (21 starts) this season. It's the biggest blow yet to a Tampa Bay pitching staff that has been ravaged by injuries to key starters.

  • Rays' Shane McClanahan: Visiting with specialists

    McClanahan (forearm) visited with specialist Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    This was after he had an MRI and was examined by team orthopedist Dr. Koco Eaton last Thursday. McClanahan will be seen by another specialist, Dr. Keith Meister, next week as he and the Rays try to gain clarity on the pitcher's left forearm injury. Presumably, an update on McClanahan's long-term prognosis will be available following next week's exam. The southpaw has posted a 6.65 ERA in his last five starts, dealing with a back issue and now a forearm problem over that span.
