Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Undergoes abdominal procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Musgrove underwent surgery to repair his abdominal wall to help heal the stress reaction on the front of his pelvic bone, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Since a typical timetable for this surgery is around six weeks, Musgrove should be fully healed and read y to go prior to spring training. The right-hander suffered the stress fracture in mid-September after a start against the Royals and was promptly shut down for the last couple weeks of the season. Across 19 starts in 2018, he logged a 4.06 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 100 strikeouts in 115.1 innings.

Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Facing six-week recovery timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Musgrove (pelvis/abdomen) is expected to require about six weeks of "relative rest" before being cleared to resume offseason workouts, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Musgrove was diagnosed Saturday with a stress reaction on the front of his pelvic bone and an abdominal wall muscle strain, which prevented him from taking the hill for his normal turn in Sunday's series finale against the Brewers. The injury will keep him on the shelf for the remainder of the season, but the six-week recovery timeline shouldn't impact his availability for the start of spring training. Nick Kingham was added to the Pirates' rotation Sunday in Musgrove's stead and will make one more start before the season draws to a close.

Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Musgrove is done for the season after recently being diagnosed with a stress reaction on the front of his pelvic bone and a strain in his abdominal wall muscle, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Musgrove will end the 2018 season with an underwhelming 4.06 ERA, 7.8 K/9 and 6-9 record in 19 starts, yet those numbers hide his promising 1.8 BB/9 -- control which would help him even if he doesn't drastically spike his strikeout ability in 2019. The righty, who'll turn 26 in December, still boasts intriguing skills that warrant attention from mixed-league fantasy players in the late rounds next spring, assuming these health issues don't halt his preseason prep.

Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Tagged for five runs vs. Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Musgrove surrendered five runs on eight hits while striking out four across six innings Monday against Kansas City. He didn't factor into the decision.

Musgrove gave up a run in the third inning and fell apart in the fifth when he allowed a four-run frame. The 25-year-old is off to an inconsistent start to September, surrendering 11 runs while fanning 20 through 18.1 innings. He'll carry a 4.06 ERA with 100 strikeouts over 115.1 innings heading into his next outing Sunday at home against Milwaukee.

Pirates' Joe Musgrove: Strikes out eight in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Musgrove (6-9) struck out eight and walked two in a loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday, allowing four runs on four hits in six innings.

Musgrove pitched decently but was outmatched by Cardinals starter Miles Mikolas, who shut down the Pirates through seven innings. In 18 starts this season Musgrove has proven to be rather hit-or-miss, as he's amassed 10 quality starts but has gone 0-6 with a 7.29 ERA in the other eight starts. He now carries a 3.87 ERA and a 96:23 K:BB in 109.1 innings on the year and will take on the Royals at home in his next start.
