Blake Snell Newsbeat

MLB notebook: Rays’ Snell set to return Wednesday

Tampa Bay Rays ace Blake Snell is slated to return from a fractured toe to start Wednesday against the Kansas City Royals.

The reigning American League Cy Young Award winner broke a toe on his right foot on April 14 after a decorative granite stand in his bathroom fell over as he was getting out of the shower.

Snell threw 18 pitches off a mound on Saturday and also threw a brief bullpen session on Monday.

“With the bullpen that I threw, felt very comfortable,” Snell told reporters. “Wednesday is a day that all of us believe in, and think I’ll be 100 percent.”

So, is this the sort of injury that shows up on weird injury lists, or is it too mundane for that?

Why Cy Young winner Blake Snell won’t get much of a raise from the Rays

PORT CHARLOTTE — So much was right about Blake Snell winning the Cy Young award for his dazzling 2018 breakout season.

And here’s one thing that’s very wrong:

Snell’s job done spectacularly well for the Rays is not going to get him much of a raise.

And they wonder why no one wants to remain on the team….
