The Citizens We will welcome back Stephen Strasbourg coach Dave Martinez told reporters (including Jessica Camerato from MLB.com). The All-Star has returned three times after the trio began their minor league rehab, and Thursday’s outing will be his first MLS appearance in little more than a year. The last time Strasbourg had a major league hill in Atlanta’s Truist Park on June 1, 2021, a look that left him with a neck irritation. Just under two months later, he underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, and missed the first two months of this season to continue his rehabilitation from the procedure.
The 2019 World Series MVP has made just seven start to MLB since signing a seven-year, $245 million contract which is the offseason after the Nationals’ World Championship title. Strasbourg makes $35 million annually through 2026, an investment that seems unfortunate given its recent health problems. However, the Nats are in dire need of assistance in rotation, and would welcome anything close to Strasbourg’s pre-2020 form. Both Patrick CorbinAnd the Joan AdonAnd the Josiah Gray And the Eric Vide She has an ERA of 4.71 or higher to date.
Strasbourg starts its first season after two days of having a player Ayer Adrianza, who was brought back from the injury list that lasted 60 days before today’s match. Nates already had a vacancy in the 40-man list, and Lucius Fox It was chosen in a similar move. Adrianza signed a $1.5 million deal over the winter but struggled with a quad fatigue at Spring Training that cost him the first two months of the season. Utiltiyman had a .247/.327/.401 switch-up appearing as a part-time player for the Braves last year.
Update on some other injury cases around the match:
- The giants start mode Alex Cobb On the injured list for 15 days, retrospectively to 4 June, with a strain on the neck. He remembers San Francisco Sam Long To take the right place veteran in the active list. The organization does not appear to be particularly concerned about Cobb’s situation, with manager Gabi Kapler telling reporters that the team hopes to be able to return when they first qualify for next weekend’s series in Pittsburgh (via Andrew Bagarelli of Athletic). Cobb was signed to a two-year, $20 million guarantee during the holiday season, and had an odd first season in the Bay Area. He has career top marks in both hits percentage (28.7%) and ball rate (65.4%), but nevertheless scored 5.73 ERAs during his first eight starts.
- Alec Mills This season debuted this evening, like Cubs He brought him back from the injured list for 60 days prior to tonight’s game against the Orioles. Chicago had a temporary extra spot on the 40-man roster after putting on the mitigator Chris Martin On the banned list over the weekend. Martin has been on bereavement leave for more than the seven days allotted to him, and won’t count against the 40-man roster for any extra time he needs to spend away from the team. Mills threw 119 innings for the Cubs last season, working to 5.07 ERA while starting 20 of 32 games. The 30-year-old doesn’t throw hard bats or miss many bats, but he fills the strike zone and hits more than half of his hits last year. He missed the first two months of the season due to lower back strain.
