I see Larnach homered again today. Again, he was the DH (actually pinch hit for the starting DH). Does he have an injury that is preventing him from playing in the field? I haven't seen anything written that explains this, but it would seem to be the most likely explanation.

 

If Larnach has an injury, is it something that might be chronic or is this just a short time issue?

I don`t believe he has. Although his best shot to make the team is in the field, believe he has played DH in the minors

Someone posted back in early spring training that he was having a shoulder issue.

Minor shoulder issue. No one seems terribly concerned.

Rocco Baldelli called it a “very mild sore shoulder” a few weeks ago.The linked article from 25 February says Larnach is on a throwing program and working his way back to playing in the field.
