Rays Pitcher Making "Remarkable" Comeback

Could the Tampa Bay Rays be getting a Cy Young-caliber arm back in time for the final stretch run?  

Pitching coach Kyle Snyder says that right-hander Tyler Glasnow is “fully healthy" just about one year out from his Tommy John surgery, which would put him ahead of schedule for normal humans. But the 6'8" pitching beast clearly isn't really a normal human. 

Snyder says Glasnow has been hitting 98-99 mph on the radar gun, and that his recovery is "pretty remarkable" at this point. 

What are his chances of pitching this season? "Not zero," said Snyder.

There's no stating how huge Glasnow's return would be in helping the Rays in their playoff push in September. Before going down last season, shortly after the sticky stuff crackdown (and pinning some of the blame for his injury on it), the now-27-year-old was dominant, with a 2.66 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP, and an equally insane 123:27 K:BB ratio in just 88 innings.
