Cleveland Indians right-hander Zach Plessack will not require surgery after breaking a thumb on his pitching hand, while unloading his undershirt after a rough outing
Detroit: Cleveland Indians right-handed batsman Zach Plessack will no longer need surgery after the pitching hand thumb breaks while shaking his undershirt after an outing.
Indian manager Terry Francona said on Wednesday, “Apart from breaking it, it was a very exciting tour for the doctor.”
Francona said Placac, which is on the 10-day injured list, will be reevaluated every seven to 10 days and is expected to start a throwing regiment in three weeks.
“After that, there are a lot of variables,” Francona said.
According to Francona, Placeac hurt himself after Sunday’s start in Minnesota “rather aggressively unloading his undershirt”. Plesac started the game with three perfect innings, but conceded five runs in the fourth inning and was dismissed with two outs in the innings.
Plesake is 4-3 with a 4.14 ERA in 10 starts. The 26-year-old Placeac was placed on the banned list in August for violating the Team COVID-19 protocol.
