  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Pulled after four innings

    Civale (2-4) took the loss Sunday against Boston, allowing three runs on eight hits, three walks and a hit batsman while striking out two in four innings.

    Civale struggled all game, as 12 of the 22 batters he faced reached safely. Even though he allowed multiple baserunners in each inning, the damage was limited due to a caught stealing and a double-play ball. Through nine outings, the 27-year-old has just two starts in which he's gone five innings or more and allowed two runs or less. With a 7.20 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season, it wouldn't be surprising if the second-place Guardians explore other rotation options if results don't change soon for Civale. His next start will likely be next weekend against the Yankees.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Strikes out seven in return

    Civale gave up two earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over five innings in a 6-5 win over the Twins on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Civale has had a very poor showing so far in 2022 after picking up 12 wins on a 1.12 WHIP over 124.1 innings last year. His 7.25 ERA is abysmal, and Civale is throwing his 91 mph fastball 29% of the time despite opponents hitting .400 against the pitch. His start against the Twins marked only the third time that he has made it though five innings so far this season. With a tendency to get pulled early from games, Civale is unlikely to be in line for many win opportunities this season. However, seven strikeouts in his first start since being activated from the injured list with a glute ailment is an encouraging sign. His next start tentatively lines up for Sunday against the Red Sox.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Activated ahead of Tuesday's start

    The Guardians reinstated Civale (glute) from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Twins in Minnesota.

    As anticipated, Civale is ready to slot back into the rotation for the first time since May 20 after he wrapped up a two-start rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus last week. In his second outing with the affiliate last Wednesday, Civale struck out seven while building up to 4.2 innings and 76 pitches, so he shouldn't face any major workload restrictions in his return to the big leagues. Cleveland optioned Konnor Pilkington to Triple-A over the weekend to reopen a rotation spot for Civale.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Looks ready to rejoin big club

    Civale (thigh) completed his second rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday, striking out seven over 4.2 innings while giving up an unearned run on two hits, a walk and two hit batsmen.

    Civale wasn't incredibly efficient -- he tossed only 46 of his 76 pitches for strikes -- but he did a good job of overwhelming hitters Wednesday, as 12 of the 13 outs he recorded came via punchouts or groundouts. The sizable workload along with the Guardians' decision to demote Konnor Pilkington to Triple-A on Thursday implies that Cleveland plans to have Civale return from the 15-day injured list to make his next start in the big leagues.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Beginning rehab assignment

    Civale (glute) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Civale sustained a glute injury in late May and required blood treatment, but he threw a side session Monday and will take another step in his recovery process by beginning a rehab assignment Thursday. The right-hander will throw three innings in Columbus during his first rehab start, and it's not yet clear whether he'll require multiple minor-league appearances prior to rejoining the Guardians.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Throwing again

    Civale (glute) threw a side session Monday, Mandy Bell of reports.

    Civale is set to take part in fielding drills Tuesday before the Guardians decide on his next steps. The right-hander is without a clear timeline to return from the 15-day injured list, but assuming the left glute injury isn't bothering him during workouts the next few days, he could be cleared to head out on a rehab assignment in the near future.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Will require blood treatment

    Guardians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Civale's MRI revealed a pocket of blood in is left glute that will need to be drained before he's able to resume baseball activities, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Francona said he's hopeful that the non-surgical procedure to have the blood drained will speed up Civale's recovery process. The 27-year-old righty was placed on the injured list with left glute soreness last week after he had stumbled to a 7.84 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 31 innings. Civale doesn't have a clear timeline for his recovery, and his ugly ratios prior to landing on the shelf make it tough to justify holding him in most 12-team leagues while his return date is murky.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Undergoes MRI

    Civale (glute) underwent an MRI on Monday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Civale threw a 35-pitch side session recently in hopes that he'll be able to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday. It's not yet clear whether the right-hander experienced a setback prior to Monday's MRI, but the next steps in his recovery process aren't likely to be revealed until the results of his examination are known.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Lands on injured list

    Civale was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with left glute soreness, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The 26-year-old righty exited his previous start with glute cramps but appeared set to make his next turn through the rotation Thursday in Detroit, but he's instead headed to the injured list. It still doesn't appear to be a serious injury, but Civale will nonetheless be out for the next couple weeks. Konnor Pilkington will be promoted from Triple-A Columbus to start Thursday's series opener against the Tigers.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Exits with apparent injury

    Civale was removed from Friday's game against the Tigers in the top of the seventh inning due to an apparent leg injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Civale gave up at least four runs in each of his first six starts this season, but he was much more effective in Friday's outing. He allowed an unearned run on three hits and a walk while striking out three in 6.1 innings but appeared to tweak something in his leg while covering first base in the top of the seventh. It's not yet clear whether the injury will force Civale to miss additional time.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Dealing with cramp

    Civale exited Friday's game against the Tigers due to a left glute cramp, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Civale tweaked his glute while covering first base in the top of the seventh inning Friday, and he was immediately removed from the game. The right-hander will presumably be monitored by the team's medical staff in the coming days, but his initial diagnosis of a cramp is somewhat encouraging. If Civale is cleared to make his next turn through the rotation, he tentatively lines up to start on the road against Houston on Wednesday.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Crushed for six runs

    Civale (1-3) yielded six runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.2 innings Friday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Twins.

    Civale got off to a rough start, allowing a pair of solo home runs to Byron Buxton and Jorge Polanco in the first inning. He managed to keep Minnesota scoreless for the next few innings before he and Bryan Shaw were tagged with eight combined runs in the fifth. Civale has now given up six runs in three of his last four starts, inflating his ERA to 9.84 through 24.2 frames. He's currently lined up face the Tigers at home next week.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Guardians-White Sox postponed

    Civale and the Guardians won't face the White Sox on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to COVID-19-related concerns within Cleveland's organization.

    Wednesday's game becomes the first to be postponed during the 2022 MLB season due to non-weather-related reasons. Assuming they aren't dealing with an outbreak that forces the team to suspend operations for several days, the Guardians will return to action Friday in Minnesota. Civale would likely be pushed back two days in the schedule to start that game.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Earns first win

    Civale (1-2) allowed four earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight across 5.2 innings to earn the win Thursday against the Blue Jays.

    Civale surrendered a two-run home to Vladimir Guerrero in the first inning, but he then settled in to hold Toronto scoreless for the following four frames. His outing was soured a bit after he allowed a two-run double in the sixth frame prior to exiting, though he still managed his first win of the campaign. Civale also recorded a season-best eight strikeouts, which was backed by 16 swinging strikes on 99 total pitches. Even with the improved outing, Civale owns a 9.45 ERA with a 22:6 K:BB across 20 innings.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Hit hard again

    Civale registered a no-decision during Friday's 9-8 win against Oakland, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk with three strikeouts in four innings.

    Civale settled down a bit after permitting four runs in the first inning, three of them coming on a Sean Murphy home run, but faltered again in the fourth when he allowed two more runs to cross the plate. The 26-year-old has now surrendered at least four runs while going no deeper than four innings in each of his four starts this season, though he only has two losses thanks to some big offensive showings. He'll carry a 10.67 ERA into his next start, most likely to come against Toronto next weekend.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Charged with second loss

    Civale (0-2) allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in three innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Sunday.

    Civale has allowed at least four runs in each of his three starts to begin the season, and he's failed to last longer than four innings in any outing. The right-hander struggled once again at Yankee Stadium on Sunday and was charged with his second consecutive loss. Civale now has a 9.58 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 10.1 innings in 2022. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Oakland.

  • Guardians' Aaron Civale: Handed loss Sunday

    Civale (0-1) allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against San Francisco.

    The Giants got on the board in the second innings with Thairo Estrada's two-run shot off Civale. The 6-foot-2 righty then allowed another pair of runs in the fourth after a throwing error. Civale has now coughed up eight runs (five earned) through 7.1 frames to begin the season. He'll look to turn things around on the road against the Yankees next week.
