The Rays are celebrating a two-year contract extension they reached with standout pitcher Tyler Glasnow.
The guaranteed $30.5 million deal keeps Glasnow, the Opening Day starter last season, with the Rays through at least 2024. He could have been a free agent this winter. Glasnow has been out since undergoing Tommy John surgery last August. He started throwing bullpen sessions in July before facing live hitters about a month later.
Adam Berry, who covers the Rays for MLB.com, reported that Glasnow has hit 97 mph in those sessions and could be a factor if the Rays advance to the playoffs.
