Prosperous Tampa Bay, finishing pitcher Fairbanks injury bad news

Tampa Bay faced bad news.

MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that the Tampa Bay Rays registered closer Pete Fairbanks on the injured list (IL) on May 4 (Korean time).

According to MLB.com, Tampa Bay placed Fairbanks on the 15-day disabled list citing inflammation in his right forearm. IL registration was applied retroactively from the 1st.

However, it does not appear to be a serious injury. MLB.com noted that “Fairbanks was knocked out early in a game against the Chicago White Sox on April 29, but the cold weather in Chicago caused a recurrence of Raynaud’s syndrome symptoms. He will recover when he returns to Tropicana Field, his home stadium.” 메이저놀이터

Raynaud’s syndrome is a condition in which peripheral blood vessels are excessively constricted due to cold or stress, causing numbness or pain in the limbs. It is not a major injury that lasts for a long time as it is caused by the cold.

Of course, the reason the club registered for IL for inflammation was because inflammation was also found. MLB.com said, “Fairbanks found a small sore on the forearm near the wrist during the MRI scan,” and “but will be able to return after meeting the minimum period for IL registration.”

Tampa Bay acquired right-handed starting pitcher Chase Anderson from the Cincinnati Reds in a cash trade. And right-hander Jack Buddy was designated for assignment (DFA).
