Blake Snell Surgery Goes Smoothly

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Blake Snell underwent surgery today to remove loose bodies from his pitching elbow. The surgery went smoothly and the Rays are expecting Snell back sometime in September. Brendan McKay will be called up to take Snell’s spot in the starting rotation. He should be owned in all leagues, but if he is not pick him up now.
