Shore (lat) was shelled in his return from the disabled list with High-A Stockton on Friday, serving up seven runs on eight hits in 1.2 innings pitched.
The horrific outing is less than ideal, but the most important thing is that the pitching prospect is healthy again. Shore wound up missing just over two months due to a lat strain incurred back in May. His control is still stellar and his strikeout rate is decent for a starter, and things appear to be trending upward given that his 2.54 FIP is well below his 4.71 ERA with the Ports.
Shore was placed on the disabled list with High-A Stockton due to a lat strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It's unclear when he sustained the injury or how severe it is, but more information should come forth as he gets back into the swing of things. Prior to getting hurt, Shore put up a 3.12 ERA and a 32:6 K:BB in 34.2 innings with the Ports.
Shore gave up an earned run on two hits and a walk over four innings in Tuesday's Cactus League loss to the Angels. He struck out three.
The 22-year-old right-hander, selected with the 47th overall pick in the 2016 first-year player draft, acquitted himself quite well against an Angels lineup that included Yunel Escobar, Kole Calhoun, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols. Shore got word Tuesday morning that he'd get the start according to CSN California's Joe Stiglich and he impressively claimed Trout as one of his strikeout victims. Shore, who was a teammate of Oakland's 2016 sixth overall pick A.J. Puk at the University of Florida, is likely to start the 2017 campaign at High-A Stockton.
