Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff (lat) to miss 6-8 weeks
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jerad Eickhoff is dealing with a mild lat strain, and is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks.
Eickhoff won't throw for 7-10 days, and then he'll essentially have to restart his entire spring training program. The injury opens up a spot in the Phillies rotation that could be filled by Ben Lively, Nick Pivetta, or Mark Lieter Jr.
Eickhoff is coming off a disappointing 2017 in which he posted a 4.71 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 128 innings.
