I’ll save you the math: That’s three months at worst, and at best estimations he could be back doing baseball things around May.
Per Mandy Bell, this is the same injury that kept Mike Clevinger out for the better part of two months last season.
Emmanuel Clase’s MRI confirmed a moderate strain of the teres major muscle in his upper back. He is expected to miss 8 to 12 weeks of game activity. This is the same injury Mike Clevinger sustained last April.
