Glasnow to 60-day IL; Rays get Mike Ford

June 17th, 2021

The Rays on Thursday acquired infielder from the Yankees for a player to be named and cash, and they transferred ace to the 60-day injured list. Right-hander was activated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

Glasnow was a contender for the AL Cy Young Award before being placed on the IL on Tuesday with a partially torn UCL and a flexor strain in his right arm. Glasnow said surgery wasn’t recommended, so he will attempt to rehab from his injury without undergoing Tommy John surgery.

The 28-year-old Ford, who will report to Triple-A Durham, was hitting .133/.278/.561 with three homers in 22 games with the Yankees.
