Pitching Notes: Wheeler, Pomerantz, Flaherty, Hudson

Zach Wheeler I had an MRI on Thursday, which showed no structural damage. Phillies Interim manager Rob Thomson told NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Jim Salisbury and other reporters. Wheeler was tested after feeling pain during a catch session. The right arm was retroactively placed on the 15-day injured list on Aug. 22, recovering from tendonitis in his forearm. Expected to miss two starts during.

I feel better and if this was a playoff game he would surely say “give me the ball”.said Thomson. Skipper said he wasn’t too concerned about Wheeler’s condition, but Wheeler said he wouldn’t be activated from the IL on Tuesday, the first day of his reinstatement eligibility. has played a major role in the success of the Phillies. The club naturally needs a right-back as soon as possible (health permitting) for a stretch run.

  • Drew Pomerantz He has yet to pitch this season after undergoing flexor tendon surgery in August 2021, and his chances of a comeback were hit two weeks ago when rehab was suspended for pain. It seems that. but, Padres Manager Bob Melvin told reporters (including San Diego Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acey) that the Pomeranz will play a catch on Friday and will throw later this week. I was seen by Dr. Ellatrasch and was told that some pain was a normal part of the recovery process.still have a chance [Pomeranz] come back here before the season ends‘ said Melvin.
  • of cardinals activate Jack Flaherty Off 60 days of IL on Monday for the start with the Nationals. A shoulder problem kept Flaherty in his three starts this season, limiting him to eight innings, making it the second straight injury-hit year.Flaherty is back, card manager Oliver Marmol He told reporters (including Rick Hamel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch): Dakota Hudson Hudson has moved to the bullpen for now and may not resume until the Sept. 17 doubleheader against the Reds. Statcast metrics are below average almost across the board, but Hudson manages his 4.43 ERA in his 126 innings, while his SIERA is lower than that. – Favorable 5.11. Neither Flaherty nor Hudson appear to be contenders for starting postseason assignments, but their jobs in September and October should give Marmol and company more thought when deciding their roles on the playoff roster. prize.
