Graveman (elbow) was moved to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. This is a procedural move, as Graveman is expected to miss most if not all of 2019 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2018. This move opens up a 40-man roster spot for the Cubs while Graveman rehabs his injury.
Graveman (elbow) signed with the Cubs on Saturday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports. Graveman underwent Tommy John surgery in late July. A typical recovery timeline will keep him sidelined for most if not all of 2019, and it's unlikely that he'll have time to build back up to being a starter if he does end up pitching any major-league innings. The 28-year-old had an ugly 7.60 ERA in seven starts prior to the injury last season, though he'd never posted an ERA worse than 4.19 in any of his four previous seasons.
Graveman (elbow) wasn't tendered by the Athletics on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Graveman underwent Tommy John surgery near the end of July, and there's a good chance he'll miss a decent chunk of the 2019 season while rehabbing. He started seven games for Oakland prior to the injury, accruing a 7.60 ERA with 27 strikeouts over 34.1 frames.
Graveman will undergo Tommy John surgery, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. He has not pitched since May 24, but since he won't be having the surgery until now, Graveman will likely miss the entire 2019 season. The 27-year-old righty has a 4.38 ERA in 446 MLB innings, but turned in a career-worst 7.60 ERA in seven starts for the big-league club this season before suffering the injury.
Graveman was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Nashville on Sunday due to a right forearm strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Fortunately for Graveman, he underwent an MRI which revealed no structural damage to his throwing arm, leaving the organization optimistic that he won't be sidelined longer than 10 days. The injury is nonetheless an untimely development for the soft-tossing hurler, who might have been next in line for a promotion to the big leagues if a replacement in the rotation is needed for Daniel Gossett (elbow) during the upcoming week.
