The Rockies announced on Wednesday that closer Wade Davis has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained left oblique. Pitcher Jairo Díaz has been recalled trom Triple-A Albuquerque and pitcher Tyler Anderson (knee surgery) has been placed on the 60-day disabled list.
Davis, 33, hadn’t pitched since May 14. It is currently unclear how or when he suffered his oblique injury. To date, the veteran right-hander owns a 2.45 ERA with 18 strikeouts and 10 walks across 14 2/3 innings.
Bryan Shaw, Scott Oberg, and Carlos Estévez could all see some save chances while Davis is out.
Díaz, 27, briefly pitched in the majors in 2017. He yielded a lone run on 12 hits and six walks with 22 strikeouts in 20 innings at Triple-A this season.
NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.
The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.
The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.
Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
