Rays’ Brendan McKay shut down due to shoulder tightness

Rays lefty Brendan McKay has been shut down from throwing at the team’s Port Charlotte camp due to tightness in his shoulder.

Manager Kevin Cash said McKay, the promising prospect, is in the middle of a seven- to 10-day period of rest and will be re-evaluated, noting he has had previous shoulder issues, which seems to be of significant concern. Any serious injury could sideline McKay for the rest of this season, possibly beyond….

McKay had some shoulder issues last season, and was set back at the start of spring training in February with stiffness and expected to be sent to Triple-A. He participated in the informal June workouts at Tropicana Field and the first four days of Spring 2.0, then was sidelined from July 7 through July 30 after testing positive for COVID-19. He reported to Port Charlotte on July 31, throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session, and had worked up to two innings in a simulated game. He last threw on Aug. 5 in a live batting practice session.

“Brendan has noted that he has had some issues, even dating back to last year,” Cash said. “After his San Diego start (on Aug. 13) he said he didn’t feel right, I’m not totally sure that he has completely gotten past that of having no issue. His buildup was going well and then after an outing he kind of went in and said, ‘I just feel really tight and not comfortable in my shoulder area.’ “
