Tanner Rainey (forearm) is "probably" finished for the regular season, said Nationals' manager Dave Martinez.
Rainey landed on the 10-day injured list in mid-September and will miss the rest of the regular season. He will finish the 2020 campaign with a 2.66 ERA and 0.74 WHIP over 20 1/3 innings.
Tanner Rainey (forearm) has been placed on the IL retroactive to September 12th with a right flexor strain. The right-hander had an MRI come back negative earlier this week but with the Nationals out of playoff contention they are playing it safe with their set-up man. Aaron Barrett has been recalled in a corresponding move.
Rainey will finish the season with a 2.66 ERA, 32 strikeouts and six non-intentional walks in 20 1/3 innings pitched for the Nationals. Rainey will likely claim a prominent role in the Nationals bullpen next season, assuming he is healthy.
