Jeremy Guthrie leaves game with a back strain

1 Comment

Orioles starter was having a nice day against the Blue Jays. He had five shutout innings under his belt with five strikeouts, but then he had to leave the game with a strained back. Updates will come later.

You never want to see a starter hurt, but given that the Orioles are probably thinking about putting Guthrie on the market before the deadline, any time lost now would kind of stink for them.

The Indians announced on Tuesday that starter Trevor Bauer has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a stress fracture in his right fibula. Pitcher Tyler Olson has been recalled from Triple-A Columbus.

Bauer, 27, took a line drive from José Abreu off of his right ankle in the seventh inning of Saturday’s start against the White Sox. He was attended to by a trainer before leaving the game.

Bauer has been among the game’s best starters this season, owning a 2.22 ERA with a 214/56 K/BB ratio in 166 innings.

Olson, 28, has pitched 18 subpar innings in the majors this season. With Triple-A Columbus, he posted a sterling 1.86 ERA with 15 strikeouts and one walk in 9 2/3 innings. Olson missed some time earlier this season with a lat strain.
