Texas Rangers pitching prospect Kyle Cody, who has been sidelined all season due to an elbow issue, will make his 2018 debut on Tuesday, per the beat guys on Twitter. Cody is slated to pitch 2 innings.

The 23 year old righthander was a 2016 6th round draft pick as a senior out of the University of Kentucky after being drafted in the second round by the Twins the prenvious year, but not signing. He had an impressive 2017 campaign, putting up a 2.64 ERA with 136 Ks and 43 walks in 126 innings pitched between Hickory and Down East. He had put himself on the map as one of the Rangers better pitching prospects before this injury.

It was also announced that Joe Palumbo will be making his second rehab start for the Rangers AZL team on Saturday, going three innings. Palumbo is working his way back from April, 2017, Tommy John surgery.
