Triggs (hip) is expected to receive a cortisone shot early next week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Triggs apparently is still dealing with some lingering pain in his hip, so the Athletics will have him receive a shot with the hope of calming things down. It's unclear how this will affect his timeline for return, although it seems unlikely that he'll be able to return until July unless he goes through his recovery program quickly.
Triggs' MRI showed some structural damage to his hip, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Manager Bob Melvin said it's unclear if the damage is new or old, but regardless, Triggs is now facing an uncertain timetable after it was initially believed he may only miss one or two starts. Making matters worse, Triggs is also dealing with some back issues. He was off to a brilliant start to 2017, but the right-hander imploded for 15 combined runs in his two most recent outings before landing on the DL.
Triggs (hip) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Matt Olson, one of Oakland's top prospects, was recalled in a corresponding move after Triggs landed on the DL with a hip strain. Triggs was hit hard Friday, allowing eight earned runs over just 3.2 innings, marking his second straight outing with at least six earned runs allowed in under 4.0 innings. He'll be on the shelf for the time being as his hip mends and it's unclear how long Triggs will need to be on the disabled list. The A's will likely need to make another roster move later in the week to fill Triggs' rotation spot.
Triggs (5-6) was tagged for eight runs on nine hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks while striking out two over 3.2 innings in Friday's 13-4 loss to the Rays.
The wheels have completely come off for Triggs, who now has a 9.64 ERA, 2.09 WHIP and 3.4 HR/9 over his last four starts, all losses. His next trip to the mound is scheduled for Wednesday in Miami, but don't be surprised if the A's consider making a change before then.
Triggs (5-5) coughed up six runs on nine hits and a walk over 3.2 innings while striking out three in Friday's 13-3 loss to the Nationals.
After giving up only one homer in his first 40.2 innings on the season, Triggs has begun having trouble keeping the ball in the park, serving up at least one home run in each of his last four starts including two Friday. Things may not get any easier for him in his next trip to the mound as he takes on the Blue Jays at home Wednesday.
