Rays' Brendan McKay (shoulder) to debut Friday

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Brendan McKay (shoulder) is scheduled to make his spring debut on Friday.

What It Means:

McKay has been limited by shoulder stiffness, but he made it through a bullpen session on Saturday without any issues. The 24-year-old left-hander should be ready for the start of the season, though it remains to be seen if he will make the Rays' Opening Day rotation.

McKay recorded a 5.14 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 56 strikeouts and 16 walks over 49 innings last year.
