Clippard (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Monday. Clippard was already looking at an extended absence due to a capsule sprain in his right shoulder, so this move was merely to make room on the 40-day roster for Chris Devenski, who clinched a spot on Arizona's Opening Day roster.
Clippard was diagnosed with a capsule sprain in his right shoulder and will be shut down for six weeks, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. The 36-year-old exited Friday's spring game with right shoulder discomfort and will now be sidelined for the foreseeable future. Clippard may not make his season debut until the end of May if he's unable to throw for the next six weeks.
Clippard underwent an MRI on his right shoulder Saturday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. Clippard left his outing Friday against the Brewers with what was initially described as right shoulder discomfort. The test should reveal if there's anything more serious going on. If healthy, Clippard should serve as a high-leverage option for the Diamondbacks this season.
Clippard exited Friday's spring game against the Brewers with right shoulder discomfort, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Clippard struggled mightily in his relief appearance Friday, as he allowed seven runs on four hits and two walks while failing to record an out. The right-hander will be evaluated further by the team's medical staff to determine the severity of his injury.
The Diamondbacks made the signing of Clippard official Friday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. The deal is valued at $2.25 million for 2021 and includes a mutual option valued at $3.5 million for 2022. The 36-year-old Clippard has stayed remarkably healthy throughout a 14-year career, something he attributes to the preparation routine he's adhered to since the minor leagues. The dependability and durability will be helpful in a bullpen that will include several young arms. Clippard will pitch at the back end of the bullpen, per Diamondbacks assistant general manager Amiel Sawdaye, as a setup to the closer, whether that be Joakim Soria or Stefan Crichton. Last year, Clippard made 26 appearances and had a 2.77 ERA for Minnesota.
