Rays reliever Nick Anderson has torn elbow ligament, will be out until after the All-Star break

Rays reliever Nick Anderson has a partial ligament tear in his right elbow and will be out of action, likely all the way past the All-Star break, reports Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Anderson had suffered a drop in velocity in his spring training outing on Wednesday and Topkin reports he was also feeling some discomfort.

The report indicates Anderson hasn’t been recommended to have surgery, so he’ll be shut down for eight weeks before working to build his arm strength back up.

With opening day just a week away for the defending American League champions, this is a tough blow. Anderson was one of their lockdown late-inning relievers during their pennant run last season. In 19 appearances during the abbreviated 2020 season, he had a 0.55 ERA and 0.49 WHIP with 26 strikeouts and three walks in 16 1/3 innings.
