It wasn’t a perfect day for Velez, however, like JT Realmoto He is “ulceration“After sustaining a blow to the left elbow/triceps area, manager Joe Girardi Tell Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports and other correspondents. The X-ray was negative for Realmuto although he could be taken out of the squad tomorrow as a precaution.

The latest from Philly….
- “He’s been basically frustrated all year long for what’s going on, ” Didi Gregory Tell Matt Breen from the Philadelphia InquirerShortstop also said that a misdiagnosed elbow injury and then persistent elbow pain led to his underperforming performance. Gregory spent more than six weeks of the season being listed with a form of arthritis in his right elbow known as pseudogout, although he was initially listed as having only a blow to the elbow, and the diagnosis of pseudogout was not known until Gregory was He was already injured. Missed about three weeks. Even after returning from IL on July 2, Phillies Shortstop said he still had prolonged pain in his elbow. Gregory said his personal physician felt the COVID-19 vaccine could be responsible for the elbow problems, as Gregorios said the pain developed soon after his vaccination in late April. However, Gregory also noted that his physician “did not give me like 100%“Confirming that the vaccine was the cause, and Brin cites two other medical experts who said there was little evidence that vaccination could lead to gout or pseudogout, and certainly not a condition that lasted for months. (Brain writes that the Veles” declined to comment on Gregory’s claim about Vaccine.”) Gregory’s doctors recommended an arthroscopy to fix his elbow once and for all, although Gregory had yet to discuss off-season treatment, and somewhat intriguingly, he planned with the Phillies or the medical staff. Gregory entered the day’s competition recording Only 0.217 / .276 / .377 over 351 board appearances.
- In another COVID-related component, the Phillies announced that 85% of players and staff in the Major League and Triple-A level have been fully vaccinated. This meets the league’s threshold for relaxed coronavirus protocols, such as reducing social distancing within the club and reducing travel restrictions. The exact number of MLB teams to meet the 85% threshold is not officially known, although the Phils are known to be one of the last teams to reach that number.
- Hector Neres free agent this winter but”I was there the whole timeFor a possible reunion with Velez, says Al Mafi Matt Gelb the athlete. The struggling Phils Bullpen is facing a major overhaul, so re-signing Neris could be a possibility just because he has done well overall this year, if not good enough to keep his job closer to back in June. Neris recorded a very strong strike rate of 31.4% but a less than average walk rate of 9.5% while posting 3.39 ERAs over 63 2/3 runs. Neris is open about promoting any Bullpen role with his next team, saying “You have to try to help the team wherever you are… if you are flexible, if you are young the team can use it everywhere, you are more valuable. “
