MLB injury, news and rumor roundup for April 27
Here it is, our nightly roundup of the notable MLB news for the day, including updates on Doug Fister, Manny Machado, Josh Hamilton and more.
Short and sweet on this night, as it was a slow news day other than the 15 games. We love those. Just concentrate on the game action.
Angels: Josh Hamilton will miss another month as he recovers from his thumb injury (MLB Network Radio).
Brewers: Ryan Braun (intercostal strain) and Jean Segura (head/face) are both expected to avoid the disabled list (jsonline.com).
Dodgers: Hanley Ramirez's injured thumb was still numb Sunday morning (latimes.com).
Nationals: Bryce Harper has been placed on the DL with a thumb injury and there may be ligament damage. Also, Doug Fister made his first minor-league rehab start as he recovers from an oblique injury. He got through four innings, allowing six hits and three runs, though all three were unearned (MiLB.com). Danny Espinosa has a bruised kneecap, but could avoid missing any games (mlb.com).
Padres: Cameron Maybin was activated from the DL and played Sunday.
Rangers: Matt Harrison was activated from the DL and made his first start of the season Sunday.
Clay Hensley: The former MLB pitcher (seven seasons with the Padres, Marlins and Giants) has decided to retire (James Larken Smith).
Tigers: With Anibal Sanchez on the disabled list, the club may look to Robbie Ray -- who was acquired in the Doug Fister trade -- to join the rotation (mlive.com).
