Indians' Brett Myers diagnosed with mild ligament sprain in elbow
Indians right-hander Brett Myers has been diagnosed with tendinitis and a mild ligament sprain in his pitching elbow.
Indians right-hander Brett Myers has been diagnosed with tendinitis and a mild ligament sprain in his pitching elbow. He will not be able to throw for at least two weeks.
Myers, 32, was placed on the 15-day DL over the weekend with a sore right forearm, a classic symptom of ligament problems. The 12-year big league veteran has had hip and shoulder problems in the past but never any issues with his elbow.
The Indians signed Myers to a one-year contract worth $7 million this offseason. He allowed 19 runs and a league-leading 10 home runs in 21 1/3 innings across three starts and one long relief appearance before the injury.
Right-hander Corey Kluber will replace Myers in the rotation and start on Wednesday. He will be the team's eighth different starter in the first 20 games of the season.
