Padres’ Musgrove out at least 2 weeks with a broken toe Rays’ Glasnow to miss 6 to 8 weeks with oblique strain

PEORIA, Arizona – San Diego All-Star pitcher Joe Musgrove will be suspended for at least two weeks after breaking his left big toe in a gym accident, raising questions about whether he will be ready for the start of the season.

According to Padres manager Bob Melvin, Musgrove was injured on Monday:

“It’s hard to predict when you talk about a broken toe. It’s going to be about how it heals, and of course, when it comes to pain tolerance, Joe will be one of those guys who will, sooner or later,” Melvin said on Tuesday.

Once Musgrove is allowed to shoot, he will have to build up his arm strength and stamina.

“He doesn’t start over, but the longer you go, the closer he gets to the start. Joe is a guy who keeps himself in very good shape,” Melvin said.

A 30-year-old right-hander, Musgrove went 10-7 with a 2.93 ERA last season and is starting a $100 million, five-year deal.

Yu Darvish And Nick Martinez will be the most likely candidates to start the first game against Colorado on March 30. The Padres’ projected rotation also includes Blake Snell, Michael Wacha And Seth Lugo.

KISSIMMEE, Florida – Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow He is expected to miss six to eight weeks due to a deformity in his left oblique.

The 29-year-old right-hander was injured during practice on Monday. He returned to the Rays rotation last September after missing almost 14 months due to Tommy John surgery.

On Tuesday, Tampa Bay said an MRI revealed a grade 2 strain.

The first day of the Race’s opening two years ago, Glaston underwent Tommy John surgery on August 4, 2021. The 6-foot-8 right-hander is 5-2 with a 2.66 ERA in 14 starts in 2021.

Glasnow signed a two-year, $30.35 million contract. He will receive $5.35 million this season and $25 million in 2024, when he would have been eligible for free agency.
