Goody's MRI revealed no structural damage in his right (throwing) elbow, though he will be shut down for a week before getting re-examined by team doctors, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Goody will likely miss a couple weeks after going down with elbow inflammation during Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against Toronto. It appears as though the right-hander believes he hyperextended his elbow, and is just dealing with some swelling at the present time. Expect an update once he resumes throwing.
Goody was placed on the 10-day disabled list with elbow inflammation after Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Evan Marshall will be added to the roster and is set to be available for Game 2 of Thursday's twin bill. Goody aggravated his elbow during his outing in Game 1 and was clearly in pain. With that, the Indians wasted no time shutting him down and placing him on the disabled list. There should be more information on the extent of Goody's injury once the Indians finish up their doubleheader.
Goody was removed from Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against Toronto with an apparent right (throwing) elbow injury, Tom Withers of The Associated Press reports. Goody tossed his glove off and reached for his arm/elbow after throwing a pitch to Kevin Pillar in the seventh inning. He was immediately removed from the game and replaced by Zach McAllister. There will be an update on Goody's situation once he's been evaluated by team doctors.
Goody has thrown 5.2 innings and given up five runs on eight hits and two walks with six strikeouts through five spring training appearances. Goody is off to a rough start, although it's hard to read too much into it after he put up a 2.80 ERA over 54.2 innings in 2017. Expect the 26-year-old to pull it together sometime in the near future as the regular season approaches. Goody will likely be one of the Indians' top arms out of the bullpen this year.
Goody struck out two of the three batters he face Wednesday against Detroit en route to his fifth hold of the season. The right-hander managed just three holds over his first 48 appearances of 2017 before locking one up in each of his last two games. Goody has been a pleasant surprise in his first season with Cleveland, pitching in 50 contests (he played just 34 games over the last two seasons with the Yankees) while managing a career-best 2.66 ERA and 1.09 WHIP to go along with 69 strikeouts in 50.2 innings.
