Zack Greinke 'Ailing Some' With Soreness In Arm

Oct 7, 2020 8:44 AM

The Houston Astros got some tough injury news on Tuesday night.

Zack Greinke is dealing with "some soreness in his arm," according to Dusty Baker. Jose Urquidy will take the ball in Game 3 opposite the Oakland Athletics' Jesus Luzardo.

Greinke 36, hasn't completed six innings since Sept. 8 and has a 5.79 ERA over his past four starts.

"Greinke's ailing some," Baker said. "He didn't say much about it, but it was pretty evident the last three or four starts that he wasn't himself."

Rhys Hoskins Out 4-6 Months After Elbow Surgery

Oct 6, 2020 8:13 AM

Rhys Hoskins had surgery to repair a ligament tear in his left elbow last week and the Philadelphia Phillies say he's expected to return to play in four to six months.

Hoskins injured the ulnar collateral ligament when his non-throwing arm collided with a baserunner on Sept. 12.

The procedure was not a full reconstruction, so Hoskins' recovery time is expected to be shorter than it would be for Tommy John surgery.

Verlander, the reigning AL Cy Young winner, made just one start this season.

Padres' Mike Clevinger Could Miss Entire Postseason

Oct 1, 2020 7:46 AM

The San Diego Padres could be without Mike Clevinger for the entirety of their playoff run.

The right-hander continues to deal with an elbow posterior impingement.

Clevinger, 29, threw a 23-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday, but the session "didn't resolve questions about his short- and long-term arm health," according to a report.

San Diego acquired Clevinger from the Cleveland Indians before the Aug. 31 trade deadline.

Sep 29, 2020 8:14 AM

Padres Uncertain About Injuries To Mike Clevinger, Dinelson Lamet

Sep 26, 2020 7:00 PM

San Diego pitcher Mike Clevinger got a cortisone shot for his ailing right elbow Friday and the Padres are hopeful he'll be OK for the playoffs. And after Friday night's second game of a doubleheader split with the Giants in San Francisco, the team now has questions about the health of Dinelson Lamet, as well.

The right-hander gave them a scare when he reported biceps tightness and left in the fourth inning -- but, for now, Lamet will throw in a couple of days with expectations of pitching Wednesday at Petco Park in San Diego's first postseason berth in 14 years.

"Everybody is pretty optimistic right now,'' manager Jayce Tingler said.
