Cleveland Indians right-hander Aaron Civale seems went to the harmed list on account of irritation in the center finger on his pitching hand, another significant hit for a beat up staff.
The significant alliance pioneer with 10 successes, Civale left in the fifth inning of Monday night’s success over the Chicago Cubs.
The pitcher is scheduled to be examined by hand specialist Dr. Thomas Graham on Wednesday.”My guess is we will need to make a roster move,” manager Terry Francona said Tuesday. “Because of tomorrow’s day off, we can let him get looked at first. But I think we’re prepared that he’s going to miss some time.”
Civale had a 3-2 rely on Eric Sogard with two out when he was visited by Francona and a coach. The coach analyzed Civale’s right hand before the pitcher was taken out.
“He’s pretty sore,” Francona said. “He says he feels like he jammed it, which obviously he didn’t. But that’s the feeling. That’s what he said it feels like.”
The deficiency of Civale would be a major blow for Cleveland, which is playing without pro Shane Bieber and right-hander Zach Plesac because of wounds. Civale is 10-2 with a 3.32 ERA in 15 beginnings.
The Indians had won six of eight and followed the AL Central-driving Chicago White Sox by two games through Monday.
