Manager Terry Francona said last week that Goody (elbow) will be ready for spring training, Joe Noga of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Goody has progressed as anticipated from the arthroscopic procedure he underwent on his throwing elbow in late August, which ended his 2018 campaign prematurely. Though elbow problems limited Goody to just 11.2 innings with the big club and hindered his effectiveness when he pitched, the right-hander could reclaim a meaningful role out of the bullpen in 2019 if he's feeling healthy coming out of the spring. He was one of the Tribe's most dependable setup men in 2017, accruing a 2.80 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 72:20 K:BB In 54.2 innings.
Goody underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Goody will miss the remainder of the season, though he's expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 campaign. Prior to suffering the injury, Goody posted a 6.94 ERA across 11.2 innings with the Indians.
Goody will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow sometime next week, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Although it's good news that Goody won't require Tommy John surgery, he'll still need to have a scope done to take care of bone spurs in his throwing elbow. While he's been ruled out for the remainder of the 2018 campaign, he figures to be ready for the beginning of spring training.
Goody felt discomfort in his elbow Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Goody has been on the disabled list since the beginning of May with an elbow issue. He's set to visit Dr. Keith Meister, with Dr. James Andrews consulting, after which there should be a clearer idea regarding the severity of the injury.
Manager Terry Francona indicated Goody (elbow) will throw a simulated game next week, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic Cleveland reports. Goody resumed mound work in early August after being shut down for three weeks but remains without a timetable for his return. The 27-year-old has been on the disabled list since early May and will likely need multiple rehab appearances to build up his arm strength, making it difficult to see him making significant contributions before the start of September.
