Strahm (knee) was traded to the Padres by the Royals on Monday along with Travis Wood and Esteury Ruiz for Brandon Maurer, Trevor Cahill and Ryan Buchter, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. Although Strahm underwent season-ending knee surgery earlier in July, he still possesses enough upside to be part of the return package that's brought a trio of arms to Kansas City. The left-hander is hopeful that he'll be ready for spring training, but only time will tell.
Strahm (knee) will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery for a torn patellar tendon, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports. The Royals were hoping Strahm would be able to get through the injury with rest and rehabilitation and return in late August, but after a second opinion, the two parties decided to go with surgery. Strahm will not pitch again in 2017, but the Royals are hopeful he will be healthy by spring training 2018.
Manager Ned Yost said Strahm will receive a second opinion on his injured knee Thursday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. Strahm was recently shifted to the 60-day disabled list, and the Royals are hoping Thursday's appointment will help determine the next step in his recovery. The 25-year-old southpaw could return Aug. 30 at the earliest, though he could be sidelined for the rest of the season if the injury requires surgery.
Strahm (knee) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday. The move clears room on the roster for Al Alburquerque, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Omaha earlier in the day. While Strahm remains without a timetable for his return as he awaits feedback from a second opinion, the earliest he could possibly return would be Aug. 30. The southpaw could ultimately be sidelined for the rest of the season if the injury requires surgery.
Strahm was diagnosed with a torn patellar tendon in his left knee and will receive a second opinion in the coming days to determine if surgery is necessary, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports. Until Strahm receives the second opinion, the Royals won't issue an expected timetable for his return, but potential surgery could sideline the young lefty for the remainder of the season. Strahm, who recently converted to a starting role before hitting the 10-day disabled list, has had a disappointing 2017 campaign, submitting a 5.45 ERA and 37:22 K:BB over 34.2 innings.
