Nationals' Koda Glover (back) dealing with rotator cuff inflammation
Washington Nationals relief pitcher Koda Glover (back) said that he is now dealing with severe rotator cuff inflammation.
Glover landed on the disabled list with lower back stiffness on June 11, but has yet to resume a throwing program. He believes that attempting to pitch through that back stiffness might have led to overcompensation with other muscles, causing the inflammation. There is no current timetable for his recovery. Do not be surprised if the Nationals make a move or two to shore up their bullpen before the trade deadline, especially with Matt Albers as the one reliable component holding them together.
Prior to this latest setback, our models projected Glover for just 15 more innings of work this season, with a 3.62 ERA, 6 saves, a 21.9 percent strikeout rate, and 9.4 percent walk rate. Even that amount and efficiency may be in danger.
