The Pittsburgh Pirates have placed right-hander Richard Rodriquez on the 10-day disabled list because of pain in his right shoulder.
The Pirates announced the move before Friday’s series opener against the Chicago Cubs. Manager Clint Hurdle says the shoulder flared up thin the past two days, possibly because of overuse brought on by other pitchers’ inability Jacob deGrom Jersey to finish innings. Rodriguez did not appear in Thursday’s loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers but pitched in the previous four games.
With all of the talk of bullpenning this season, another trend that has taken root in pitching staff management has been the relief pitcher shuttle. You see it in action every day on the transaction wire. RHP X is optioned to Triple-A Y, while RHP Z is recalled from said minor league outfit. A day or two later, RHP Z is sent back down, and another reliever is summoned. Each time a player is optioned out, he has to stay in the minors for at least 10 days (barring an injury), so teams seeking to maximize this strategy tend to have a handful of optionable players around.
Torres has not pitched this season. The reliever was put on MLB’s restricted list before spring training began.
The 24-year-old left-hander was 7-4 with one save and a 4.21 ERA in 62 games last year. He made his big league http://www.newyorkgiants.us.com/WOMENS-RILEY-DIXON-JERSEY.html debut in 2016 and pitched four times for the http://www.authenticmetshop.com/authentic-48-jacob-degrom-jersey.html Padres.
Torres pleaded not guilty Jan. 9 in Maricopa County Superior Court in Phoenix to charges in a Dec. 29 indictment: felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon or dangerous incident and misdemeanor recklessly defacing or damaging property of another person.
Against Cleveland, though, his fastball regularly reached 98 mph as he allowed one run on five hits in seven innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.
This was huge, because we’ve been working on my mechanics, and this is what I needed, Fulmer said. That’s Authentic Riley Dixon Jersey my old fastball and my old command being able to throw quality fastballs where I need them down in the zone.
Even after a loss, Gardenhire knew how much Fulmer’s performance meant to a team with a banged-up pitching staff.
