Craig alluded to the possibility this morning and now it’s official.
Garland has earned the reputation as one of the most durable pitchers in baseball, logging at least 190 innings in nine consecutive years, but this season hasn’t been very kind to him at all. The 31-year-old right-hander began the year on the disabled list with an oblique injury and went 1-5 with a 4.33 ERA and 28/20 K/BB ratio over eight starts before going down with right shoulder inflammation in early-June.
Garland hadn’t been on the disabled list since 2000 prior to this season, but we should probably get used to seeing him there moving forward.
