The Indians have a home game scheduled for Saturday at 4:10 PM. Problem: the Cavaliers have their first round playoff game against the Bulls scheduled for around 3PM. The arena and the ballpark are right next to each other, however, so that brings opportunity: ticket holders for the Cavs-Bulls game will be allowed to purchase
special $5 tickets to see the remainder of the Indians-White Sox game.
So if you’re an Indians fan who happened to snag Cavs tickets as well, no need to choose because it’s all jake. Literally: Peavy and Westbrook are pitching on Saturday.
Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that Angels reliever Blake Wood underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with a damaged ulnar collateral ligament. Wood will seek further opinions before a course of treatment is decided. Tommy John surgery is a possibility.
Wood, 32, had been on a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire and has been on the disabled list since April 22. Prior to the injury, Wood compiled a 2.31 ERA with a 10/7 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.
Keynan Middleton recently underwent Tommy John surgery to repair a damaged UCL, so it’s not been a great time to be a member of the Angels’ bullpen.
