Rays' Brent Honeywell: Optimistic following latest setbackMay 25, 2020 | 12:22 AM
Honeywell, who underwent a decompression procedure on his right elbow Wednesday, is reportedly in good spirits and aiming to throw off a mound by fall, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 25-year-old right-hander has now undergone three different operations on his throwing elbow since last appearing in a game back in September 2017. While that is undeniably discouraging, Rays pitching coach Kyle Snyder, who'd been reviewing video of the multiple bullpen sessions Honeywell was throwing weekly during the current shutdown, reported on a Zoom media call Friday that Honeywell's attitude following the latest setback has been nothing but positive. Snyder added Honeywell's focus in the immediate future will be regaining range of motion, extension and strength while aiming for a return in 2021. "I'm hopeful, as much as anything, this will be the last hiccup that he's going to have to go through," Snyder said. "He's been through a lot, and he's certainly worked his tail off to get back to where he is.''
