Red Sox Sit Down Tyler Thornburg

Mar 28, 2017 7:46 AM

The Boston Red Sox scratched Tyler Thornburg from a scheduled appearance Monday against the Baltimore Orioles because of a spasm in his upper right trapezius.

Thornburg hasn't pitched in a Major League spring training game since March 1 because of weakness in his right shoulder. He "most likely" will open the season on the disabled list.

He is expected to undergo testing, including a possible MRI exam.

"If it's what I anticipate, probably not," Dave Dombrowski said. "But I can't rule anything out because I don't really know anything (other) than what we just found out, that he's got a trap that's tight. If it's a short-term situation, then I don't have a spot to offer somebody."

Drew Pomeranz Leaves Start With Left Triceps Tightness

Mar 20, 2017 6:55 AM

Drew Pomeranz left his exhibition start one inning earlier than expected on Sunday due to left triceps tightness.

Pomeranz first developed the tightness in the first inning against the Minnesota Twins and it persisted into the second frame. He threw 47 pitches and didn't come out for a third scheduled inning.

The left-hander told reporters he didn't think the injury was serious, but the Boston Red Sox will be careful. Pomeranz experienced left elbow/forearm stiffness late last season and received a stem-cell injection over the winter.

There are also injury concerns surrounding David Price entering the season.

Matin Prado To Have MRI On Injured Hamstring

Mar 18, 2017 12:49 AM

The Marlins are still waiting to learn the extent of third baseman Martin Prado's hamstring injury, including whether he'll be available for Opening Day.

Playing for Team Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, Prado hurt himself running out a grounder in the sixth inning of Wednesday's loss to Team USA.

Prado immediately left the game and didn't return.

"Hopefully it's minor, Grade I (strain), and that we're able to kind of continue and have him ready, but we'll just have to wait and see," Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Friday.
