CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Guardians starter Aaron Civale has been placed on the 15-day injured list with a sprained right wrist.
Civale pitched just one inning in Wednesday night’s loss to the Chicago White Sox.
The team made the move with Civale before opening a four-game series against the Detroit Tigers.
Civale, who spent time earlier this season on the IL with a strained glute muscle, threw 20 pitches before leaving the game.
Manager Terry Francona said he’s been dealing with a wrist issue for some time.
Civale missed significant time with a sprained right middle finger last season.
The 27-year-old is 2-5 with a 6.17 ERA in 12 games this season.
