“He has to get stretched back out, but he’ll start his rehab clock here soon,” Snitker said of Gausman, who pitched in a simulated game Sunday.
Before the injury, the right-hander was pitching his way out of the team’s rotation. He owns a 6.21 ERA after giving up 15 earned runs across his past two starts (six total innings). It’s unclear how the team will use him upon his return.
“You can’t predict what’s going to happen,” Snitker previously said regarding Gausman. “We’ll see where he fits in when he’s ready to come back.”
