first_img Sonny Gray opens up about struggles with Yankees: ‘New York wasn’t a great fit for me’ “I really don’t know,” Cash said, via MLB.com. “I certainly hope that’s our mindset, but I know how much we care about him and his future with us that we’ll just wait and see how time plays out and if there’s enough time to build him back up.”The right-hander has been out with a right forearm strain since mid-May and the team was originally expecting him to be back after the All-Star break.

He threw really well and then the day after just did not feel as great.”Glasnow was having a career season before suffering the injury. He held a 6-1 record with a 1.86 ERA over eight starts and was on pace to make his first All-Star team. “It’s disappointing, there’s no doubt,” Cash said last month. “Look, he was the best pitcher in baseball before he got hurt. I’m not saying he is the best pitcher, but he was performing as a top pitcher, if not the best. When you get that kind of production, that kind of performance and you don’t have it, it’s disappointing.”The Rays entered play Monday in second place of the American League East with a 55-40 record. They trail the Yankees by six games in the division and hold a 1 1/2 game lead over the Athletics for the first wild-card spot.
