MLB has handed an 80-game suspension to Ravin (arm), effectively immediately, for a positive PED test, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Ravin wasn't expected to be back on the mound until June due to a Feb. 29 car accident in which he broke his left radius bone. In the aftermath of the ban, he released a statement, which included an admission that he "came down with severe case of intestinal flu, strep throat, was put on antibiotics and lost 20 lbs in seven days. To speed up recovery, I took supplements I thought would help. Unfortunately, I was not as careful as I should have been, and one of the supplements contained a banned substance...that showed up in a drug test during spring training." While admitting wrongdoing is the honorable route, he now won't be available to pitch until early August.
Ravin was transferred to the 60-day DL Sunday. Ravin is currently facing a timetable of 8-to-12 weeks for a return, so the Dodgers could afford to make this move to clear up a spot on the 40-man roster, which was needed after acquiring several players in a deal with Cleveland.
Ravin (arm) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday, MLB.com reports. Ravin suffered a broken bone in his non-pitching forearm during a car accident, and has been given a timetable of 8-to-12 weeks for return. If that timetable holds up, there's a good chance the reliever ends up on the 60-day DL in the near future in order to clear up a spot on the 40-man roster.
Ravin (arm) underwent surgery Wednesday and will miss eight-to-twelve weeks, Andy McCullough of the L.A Times reports. Ravin fractured a bone in his non-pitching forearm in a car accident Monday that was severe enough to require surgery. After going under the knife Wednesday, the team determined that Ravin would miss roughly two-to-three months of action before returning to the diamond. The flame-throwing right-hander figures to start the season in the minors once he's ready to get back on the field.
Ravin (arm) underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a broken left radius, Alanna Rizzo of SportsNet LA reports. Ravin broke his arm in a car accident Monday, but it appears that his arm has been properly fixed and he can now enter the rehab process. The exact timetable for his return is still unclear, but he'll likely miss a decent chunk of spring training. Thankfully it's not his throwing arm, but it's still very possible that the injury could jeopardize Ravin's ability to garner a roster spot with the Dodgers.
