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.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on average projected fantasy points, Blake Snell is the #14 fantasy starting pitcher with an average of 4.17 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 1.8 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 20 games this season he has averaged 1.55 which ranks him as the #48 starting pitcher based on average.
