Ryan (wrist) will make his next start in Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Ryan was pushed back from starting Sunday while recovering from a bruised right wrist, but he'll rejoin the rotation Wednesday after receiving a couple extra days to recover. The 25-year-old has pitched well through his first three big-league starts with a 2.12 ERA, 0.53 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB in 17 innings.
Ryan (wrist) won't start Sunday against the Blue Jays as Luke Farrell will instead start a bullpen game for the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Ryan has been dealing with a bruised right wrist after being hit by a comebacker in his previous start last Tuesday versus Cleveland, and he'll receive some extra rest between outings. There's been no indication the right-hander is heading to the injured list, so he could be an option to start Tuesday against the Cubs following Monday's scheduled off day.
Ryan's X-rays were negative Tuesday after he was struck in the arm by a comebacker, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Ryan struck out five and allowed just one run on three hits in a walk over five innings of work Tuesday against Cleveland before a Myles Straw liner knocked him out of the game in the sixth inning. He marched directly off the field without waiting for team trainers, which could have indicated a more serious injury, but he's been diagnosed with nothing more than a right wrist contusion. Whether or not the injury will force him to the injured list is not yet clear.
Ryan exited his start Tuesday against Cleveland after getting struck in the arm by a comebacker, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Ryan was pitching well in the matinee of Tuesday's twin bill before a Myles Straw liner hit him in the sixth inning. In five innings of work, he allowed just one run on three hits and a walk while striking out five batters. The nature and severity of his injury aren't yet clear, but it's possible it's a bad one, as he marched straight to the dugout without even waiting for a visit from team trainers. Given that there's less than three weeks left in the regular season, anything more than a minor issue could wind up shutting him down for the year.
Ryan (1-1) allowed just one hit and struck out four through seven shutout innings, picking up his first career win in Wednesday's 3-0 victory over Cleveland. The Minnesota rookie retired the first 19 batters he faced before Amed Rosario broke up the party in the seventh with a single. The base hit was the only damage to Ryan's line, as he had Cleveland thoroughly perplexed for the entire outing and did not issue a free pass. While the right-hander doesn't possess wipeout velocity, his tendency to challenge hitters and an arm angle that makes the ball appear as if it's coming from his shoulder make him an interesting pitcher to watch. It may be too late for the 25-year-old to make a significant impact in 2021, but this is the type of start that the brass will remember when assembling next season's rotation.
