Athletics' Sean Manaea: Diagnosed with rotator cuff tendinitis
Manaea was diagnosed Tuesday with left rotator cuff tendinitis and is without a definitive timetable for a return, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
This is a tough blow for Manaea and the Athletics. The southpaw will be shut down from throwing until the discomfort in his shoulder subsides, after which he'll have to build back up to throwing off a mound again. While the A's are hoping Manaea will be able to pitch again this season, there's a possibility that won't happen. Frankie Montas will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take Manaea's turn in the rotation for the time being.
