Richard to IL, Reid-Foley to start tomorrow

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Detroit Tigers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

We can’t make it once through the rotation without an injury.

Clayton Richard goes on the IL (I will get used the the term Injury List soon) with a stress reaction in his right knee. Apparently a stress reaction is what happens before a stress fracture, so good they are ahead of it. He will be out for at least two weeks.

Sean Reid-Foley will get tomorrow’s start.

Sean didn’t have the greatest of spring stats. He had an 8.40 ERA in 15 innings. He allowed 14 hits, 1 home run, 8 walks, with 13 strikeouts.

Last year he made 7 starts for the Blue Jays, with a 5.13 ERA. In 33.1 innings he allowed 31 hits, 6 homers, 21 walks with 42 strikeouts. He’s gotta throw more strikes.

Splitting time between New Hampshire and Buffalo he had a 3.26 ERA in the minors last year. In 129.2 innings he allowed 103 hits, 50 walks and 150 strikeouts.

I was hoping we’d see Reid-Foley some this year.

Get better quick Clayton.

In case you missed it, Russell Martin pitched yesterday. The Dodgers were up by 13 and decided not to use a pitcher. He had a clean inning, two ground outs and a fly out:
