May 14Right hand tigers Michael Pineda He had to leave today’s match in the second half after he was injured in the hand by a Ramon Urias engine line. After the match, manager AJ Hinch For reporters (including MLB.com’s Jason Beck) that Pineda fractured his right middle finger. A trip to the casualty list is inevitable, and Hinch said Pineda will visit specialists to determine the next course of action in recovery.
It’s a tough outcome for both Pineda and the Tigers, who have already lost many members in the perfect starting cycle. Matt Manning (Shoulder pain) It may be within a week or two of returning to work, but Casey Miz (Elbow sprain) did not last long in his first rehabilitation, and his rehabilitation mission was as well Now it is paused. Tyler Alexander I also made some points starting earlier in the season, before twisting the left elbow put the southern claw on the shelf.
Pineda missed some time at the start of the year, as visa issues delayed his arrival at spring training, and thus delayed pre-season preparation. Despite five starts and 22 1/3 runs, Pineda has a 3.22 ERA, despite only a 13.63% strike rate. While the K% is particularly low, Pineda’s story in the past four seasons has been delivering some solid final numbers (3.77 ERA over 303 rounds) despite the overall unimpressive peripherals. Pineda signed A deal worth $5.5 million for one year which holds up to $2.5 million in bonus money based on role totals, but he will have trouble hitting any of those role thresholds if he loses significant time in IL.
The Tigers signed with Pineda to add some veteran experience to their young staff, and after just five weeks into the season, this shooting depth has already been painfully tested. Tarek Scobal It was excellent and Eduardo Rodriguez I started to turn things around after a rough start, but Detroit turned Bo BriskyAnd Alex FaidoAnd Joy Wentz Everyone has to start their first major league.
Triple-A’s Faedo was already expected to start Monday’s game, and Brieske will likely remain in the rotation after posting some decent results so far. Wentz can also get another look for a start or two so the Tigers feel Manning is ready to activate from their injured list.
