“We are overwhelmed by the support for Tyler and the wishes for his full and speedy recovery from fans and the baseball community alike,” the Rays added.

On Friday, the Montgomery Biscuits tweeted, “Please continue to keep former Biscuit Tyler Zombro in your thoughts. Great baseball player and even better human.”
