Indians' Tyler Clippard: Shut down from throwing
Clippard (pectoral) will be shut down from throwing for 10-to-14 days, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Clippard exited last Saturday's game with right pectoral tightness and resumed throwing Wednesday, but apparently aggravated the issue. The 34-year-old joined the Indians on a minor-league deal that has a March 20 opt-out should he not be on the major-league roster, so the team will look to reach an altered agreement to help keep him in the organization. Clippard is likely looking at a return in mid-April if all goes well.
