Dominguez (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Dominguez may not pitch in the majors during the 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, so his placement on the injured list is simply procedural. The move will clear up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Brad Miller.
Dominguez (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $727,500 contract with the Phillies on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. He had Tommy John surgery in late July, so Dominguez may not pitch at all in the majors this season. Obviously the Phillies like his talent enough to pay to keep him in the organization during a lost season. He had a breakout rookies season in 2018 when he logged a 2.95 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 58 innings, but struggled to a 4.01 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 24.2 innings in 2019.
Dominquez had successful Tommy John surgery Thursday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. This was expected. Dominquez will now begin a lengthy rehab process that will likely keep him sidelined for 12-plus months.
General manager Matt Klentak said Dominguez (elbow) has yet to undergo Tommy John surgery, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports. Klentak didn't mention what was causing the delay, but he added that Dominguez is preparing for the procedure. Following the surgery, Dominguez will likely be sidelined for 12-plus months.
Dominguez was placed on the 45-day injured list with a right elbow sprain Sunday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Tommy John surgery remains a distinct possibility for Dominguez, and it seems like an inevitability with this transaction. The move opens up a 40-man roster spot for 2020.
