Arrieta (hamstring) played catch in the outfield Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports. While the Phillies aren't shutting Arrieta down due to the right hamstring strain he suffered Sept. 15, the right-hander isn't expected to be ready for game action before the regular season comes to an end in one week. Instead, the Phillies are turning their focus to getting Arrieta back at some point during the postseason, should the team qualify. Arrieta will wrap up the regular season with a 5.08 ERA and 1.51 WHIP, his worst marks in both categories since his time with the Orioles early in the previous decade.
Arrieta (hamstring) won't pitch again during the regular season, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Arrieta was placed on the injured list with a Grade 1 hamstring strain Wednesday, and manager Joe Girardi confirmed Thursday that he'll be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Girardi was hopeful that the right-hander could return for a postseason run if the Phillies qualify.
Arrieta was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Wednesday. Arrieta sustained a Grade 1 hamstring strain during his start Tuesday, and he'll be sidelined at least 10 days. The right-hander underwent an MRI on Wednesday, the results of which aren't yet known. With just under two weeks remaining in the regular season, Arrieta will likely be unavailable for the remainder of the year. The Phillies haven't announced who will take Arrieta's place in the starting rotation.
Phillies manager Joe Girardi said Arrieta (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Phillies believe Arrieta sustained a Grade 1 right hamstring strain in his start Tuesday, but he'll be sent in for further tests as the team looks to confirm the extent of his injury. While a Grade 1 strain likely wouldn't end Arrieta's season, he may not be able to shake off the injury before his next turn in the rotation comes up Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Arrieta said he sustained a Grade 1 hamstring strain during Tuesday's win over the Mets, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. The 34-year-old doesn't believe it's a serious injury, but it's a tight time frame with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season. Arrieta missed 17 days after suffering a similar injury in 2017, and he would need an even faster recovery this time around to have even a slight chance of pitching again in the regular season. The veteran right-hander's status should be updated as he continues to be evaluated over the next couple days.
