Salcedo has made two rehab appearances for the GCL Twins. He has thrown three innings in those two appearances and struck out a batter an inning. There were two runs scored in his second appearance but both were unearned runs. He hasn't walked a batter since his return to the mound.
It will be nice to see if he can still make something out of the rest of the season.
Salcedo continued his road back from injury with his second start in the GCL on Friday night. He is still limited on the amount of pitches that he can throw. So in 2.1 innings on the mound, he allowed two earned runs with one walk and one strike out. For the second start in a row, there were two unearned runs scored against Salcedo so the error might have caused his pitch count to rise a little more than the team wanted.
Since returning from injury he has thrown 5.1 innings and allowed two earned runs with one walk and four strike outs.
After his rehab assignment in the GCL, Salcedo is back with the Miracle. He pitched three innings in his first outing back in Fort Myers and it was perfect by any means. He gave up three runs on six hits but it was good to see that he didn't walk anyone in this appearance.
He should get into another game in the next couple of days as the team continues to stretch him back out.
Salcedo is back on the DL.....same arm troubles???
Unfortunately, this is the case. I can't find much information about the nature of the injury but I am guessing that it is more of the same issue. Wondering if surgery is the next step or what the process will be for the rest of the season.
