Musgrave (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. This move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Thursday's starter, Peter Lambert, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Albuquerque. Musgrave, who first landed on the IL with a left elbow flexor strain May 4, won't be eligible to return until July 3 at the earliest following this latest transaction.
Musgrave (elbow) will report to the Rockies' spring training facility in Salt River on Sunday to continue his rehab, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports. Musgrave was put on the 10-day injured list May 4 with a left elbow flexor strain and will head to Salt River, hopefully to establish a timetable for a return during the Rockies' upcoming east coast road trip. The left-hander had given up four earned runs in 10 relief appearances prior to the injury.
Musgrave hit the 10-day injured list with a left elbow flexor strain Saturday. Musgrave posted a 3.60 ERA in 10 innings prior to suffering the injury. It's not yet clear when he's expected to return. D.J. Johnson will take his place on the roster.
Musgrave is being considered a full-time reliever this season, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports. Musgrave nearly broke camp in the Rockies' rotation back in 2017, but wound up waiting to make his major-league debut until 2018 as a reliever. After displaying some success in the majors -- especially against lefties (.217 BAA in 2018) -- the left-hander is vying for a spot in the bullpen as a long reliever. Having him and Chris Rusin in the bullpen is a bit redundant, however, so there's a good chance Musgrave begins the season back with Triple-A Albuquerque.
Musgrave was sent down to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Musgrave was cast off the active roster in order to make room for Scott Oberg, who was reinstated from the paternity list in a corresponding move. Through 24 appearances in the big leagues this year, Musgrave has logged a pedestrian 5.08 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 23:17 K:BB across 33.2 innings of relief.
