Originally written April 23, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Cleveland Indians placed right-handed starting pitcher Brett Myers on the disabled list due to a forearm injury over the weekend. However, an MRI recently taken revealed tendinitis and a mild strain of the ulnar collateral ligament in Myers’ elbow, and the Indians have shut down the veteran for at least two weeks as a result, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer. Myers had been dealing with discomfort in his forearm since spring training. The pain got increasingly worse as the year went on, and Cleveland elected to put him on the DL after another rough outing on Friday. Since Myers’ injury was initially reported as a strained forearm, there was reason to believe he could return in two weeks after missing a few starts. Now, it’s clear he’ll require at least a month on the DL – if not more – depending on how his elbow checks out following the resting period. Prior to being placed on the DL, Myers had made four appearances – including three starts – for the Indians, posting an ERA of 8.02 over 21 1/3 innings. He’s allowed 29 hits – including 10 home runs – with five walks and 12 strikeouts this year. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
