The Guards they start Aaron Civale on the list of 15 days injured due to the tightness of the left glute, writes Joe Noga of Cleveland.com. It is not expected to be a long absence, with manager Terry Francona telling reporters that the organization was discussing whether it would even need to spend two weeks on the shelf. The governor suggested that Civale is likely to continue firing the sessions during his absence and the hope is that “next time he plays he will not have to worry about it.”
Civale has had tough things this season. The right-hand man has been spotted for a Season 7.84 through seven starts, allowing six home runs in 31 innings. His hitting and walking rates are exactly in line with last season and Civale posted 3.84 ERA at 124 1/3 frames in 2021. However, his ground ball rate has plummeted this year, and has seen a sharp increase in opponents’ average output speed and barrel rate. Civale will try to get his results back on track as soon as he is entitled to return in a few weeks from now. Conor Pilkington will be recalled to start tomorrow’s game with the Tigers in place.
The latest for some other injured pitchers during the game:
- Nationals starter Joe Ross retired after three innings during yesterday’s detox exit with Double-A Harrisburg, manager Dave Martinez told reporters (including Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com). The 29-year-old experienced a new tightness in his elbow and is heading for an MRI scan. This is obviously a worrying development, as the trip marked Ross’s first racing action since being diagnosed with a partial UCL rupture in his elbow last August. He finished his season, and also underwent surgery to remove the pieces from the joint this spring. Ross, who threw 108 innings with a 4.17 ERA ball last year, is in his final season in control of the club through refereeing.
- Jake Odorichi returned to the embankment yesterday, throwing a bullpen session before the team’s match with the Guardians (video provided by Mark Berman of FOX 26). It is quite remarkable Astros The right-hand man was flying back so fast, as we have only been nine days away from retiring from the stadium in Fenway Park. Odorizzi suffered an injury to his left leg that prevented him from leaving, but an MRI scan later revealed that his Achilles tendon remained intact. The 32-year-old suffered some problems with the ligaments and tendons and was included in the list of injured for 15 days, but he does not seem to have a particularly long absence.
- Angels starter Griffin Canning He has not played in the major leagues since last July. Having opted for the minor leagues, he made just one start with Triple-A Salt Lake before being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back that ended the 2021 season. that he could return by June, he suffered another stressful reaction recently that will push his schedule further back. Canning told reporters (incl Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times) that after a meeting with a specialist, he chooses not to undergo surgery. There is no timetable to continue throwing, but Canning is still hoping to return sometime this season. The former second-round pick has had myriad health problems over the past two years, keeping him on 43 MLB appearances since the start of the 2019 campaign.
