SP - CLE
Zach Plesac allowed four runs (one earned) on seven hits in 3 2/3 innings of work in a 7-1 loss to the Royals on Saturday. Plesac took the loss while striking out one and walking one.
Plesac was making his first start since August 27 after landing on the injured list with a fifth metacarpal fracture in his right hand. He struggled in the start, although a fielding error by Gabriel Arias in the fourth inning didn't help matters. The owner of a 3-12 record and 4.34 ERA in 24 starts this year, Plesac will likely join the bullpen for Cleveland once the postseason begins.
Zach Plesac (hand) is scheduled to be activated from the IL and start Friday against the Royals.
Plesac has been out since 9/2 with a fractured left hand and has been progressing well towards a return. He completed a rehab start Saturday where he threw 5 shutout innings (65 pitches) with 5 strikeouts. He will likely be on somewhat of a pitch count in his first start back.
Zach Plesac is set to make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Toledo Saturday.
Plesac has been out of action since fracturing his right hand after he punched the mound on August 27th. He recently completed a three inning simulated game on September 20th. The Guardians should provide more details on Plesac's timetable after his rehab start.
Zach Plesac has been out since August 27 with a right-hand fracture but is on track for a late-season return.
Plesac is scheduled to throw three innings in a simulated game on Tuesday, and his next start could be in Triple-A Columbus, which could lead to a return to Cleveland before the season's end.
Zach Plesac has been scratched from Friday's start due to a fractured right hand and was placed on the 15-day IL. Cody Morris will start Friday in his place.
This is tough news for the Guardians and Plesac as a fracture will likely keep him out for more than a few weeks. Cody Morris will make his major league debut Friday and could maintain a spot in the rotation if now that Plesac will miss extended time.
