Top Lance McCullers News

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Still not throwing

    McCullers (forearm) will start throwing in "about a month," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    McCullers suffered the injury to his throwing arm in mid-October and was unable to pitch in the the ALCS or World Series. In positive news, McCullers recently had an MRI that came back clean. Even so, it will be worth monitoring how McCullers is able to progress prior to spring training, which may dictate whether he is able to ramp up in time to begin the season on the mound.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Unavailable for World Series

    McCullers (forearm) won't be available to pitch in the World Series, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    McCullers missed the ALCS after he sustained a right forearm injury in mid-October, and he hasn't yet resumed throwing. The righty underwent an MRI that revealed no structural damage, and his injury isn't believed to be a long-term concern. However, he'll now shift his focus toward preparing for spring training in 2022.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Still not throwing

    Manager Dusty Baker said Thursday that McCullers (forearm) hasn't yet resumed throwing, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    McCullers has been sidelined since Game 4 of the ALDS due to a forearm strain, although the team's medical staff has determined that the right-hander isn't dealing with any structural damage. The 28-year-old appears unlikely to pitch in the World Series if the Astros advance, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him available for spring training in 2022.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Left off ALCS roster

    McCullers (forearm) was left off the Astros' roster for the ALCS against the Red Sox.

    The move was an expected one, as reports emerged Thursday that McCullers wasn't going to be able to pitch in the series after leaving his start in Game 4 of the ALDS against the White Sox with forearm discomfort. While he isn't believed to be dealing with a long-term issue, it's no surprise that he'll miss at least a bit of time. Whether or not he'll have a chance to pitch in the World Series should the Astros win the AL pennant remains to be seen. Jake Odorizzi was added to the ALCS roster after being left off for the ALDS and could step into Houston's rotation in McCullers' absence.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Avoids structural damage

    Manager Dusty Baker said Friday that McCullers (forearm) is dealing with a muscle strain and has no structural damage, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    The 28-year-old has already been ruled out for the ALCS after exiting his Game 4 start versus Tampa Bay with the injury, but he's avoided any long-term concerns. It remains to be seen whether McCullers will be available for the World Series should the Astros defeat the Red Sox. Jake Odorizzi was left off the initial playoff roster but will join Houston for the ALCS in the wake of the injury.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Unlikely to pitch in ALCS

    McCullers (forearm) is expected to miss the ALCS against the Red Sox, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    McCullers left his start in Game 4 of the ALDS against the White Sox with forearm discomfort. While an MRI revealed no long-term concerns, the injury is expected to prevent him from pitching for at least the immediate future. Whether or not he'd be in contention for the World Series should the Astros advance is not yet clear. In the meantime, Houston could turn to Jake Odorizzi, who was left off the ALDS roster, or potentially Zack Greinke, who may not be fully stretched out to start after missing time at the end of the regular season with a neck injury.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Undergoes MRI

    McCullers (forearm) recently underwent an MRI and isn't believed to be dealing with a long-term injury, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    McCullers exited Game 4 of the ALDS against the White Sox on Tuesday due to right forearm discomfort. Although the results of his MRI were relatively encouraging, it's not yet clear whether the 28-year-old will be able to pitch in the ALCS.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Leaves with forearm discomfort

    McCullers was removed from Game 4 of the ALDS against the White Sox on Tuesday with right forearm discomfort, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. He didn't factor in the decision and allowed one run on five hits with five strikeouts and three walks over four innings.

    McCullers was pulled at 73 pitches after four frames due to the injury, so he didn't qualify for the victory as Houston punched its ticket to the ALCS. The severity of the injury remains unclear, leaving the right-hander's status up in the air for his next turn through the rotation, which could line up for Game 3 at Boston on Monday.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Starting Game 4

    McCullers will start Game 4 of the ALDS against the White Sox on Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Jose Urquidy initially lined up to start Game 4, but McCullers will take the mound on normal rest after the contest was pushed from Monday to Tuesday due to inclement weather. The right-hander started the series opener and allowed four hits and no walks while striking out four in 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win.

  • Astros' Lance McCullers: Sharp against White Sox

    McCullers (1-0) allowed four hits and no walks while striking out four across 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win in Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the White Sox.

    McCullers dominated the White Sox by inducing 11 groundouts, while also earning 23 called strikes on 104 total pitches. He did not walk an opposing hitter for the first time in any outing this season, which helped him match his longest start since Aug. 25. With the effort, McCullers also built on his strong track record in the postseason, as he now has a 2.53 ERA with a 57:15 K:BB acoss 53.1 innings. McCullers is projected to start the final contest of the series, if necessary.
