Cardinals place key bullpen pitcher Andrew Miller on 10-day Injured List

Andrew Miller

 

12:05 PM CDT

 

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – August 27, 2020 – The St. Louis Cardinals have placed left-handed pitcher Andrew Miller on the 10-day Injured List with left shoulder fatigue retroactive to August 24 and activated right-handed pitcher Junior Fernandez from the Injured List to join the Major League roster. Infielder Edmundo Sosa was activated from the Injured List today and will report to the Alternate Training Site in Springfield, Mo.

For today’s doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Cardinals have recalled right-handed pitcher Seth Elledge from the Alternate Training Site as the 29th man.

Miller, 35, appeared in seven games this season sporting a record of 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA and a team-leading two saves in two opportunities pitching 5.2 innings. The southpaw was last on the Injured List in September 2018 with a left shoulder impingement while as a member of the Cleveland Indians.

Fernandez, 23, appeared in one game for the Cardinals in 2020, tossing a scoreless inning with one strikeout vs. Pittsburgh on July 26.

Elledge, 24, is 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in three appearances, pitching four innings with striking out eight to rank third among Cardinals relief pitchers in strikeouts. The rookie earned his first Major League win in his last outing on August 20 vs. Cincinnati before being optioned.

Sosa, 24, has yet to play in a 2020 Major League regular season game, but was participating in Summer Camp exhibitions.

Cleveland’s NBA, NFL and MLB teams align to spread awareness and solicit a call to action on community movements and initiatives

 

9:18 AM EDT

Cleveland, OH – Head Coaches and front office executives representing the city’s three major professional sports teams – the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Indians - announced today a sports alliance to develop a sustainable and direct strategy to address social injustice facing the city of Cleveland and all Northeast Ohio communities. The alliance will also focus on improving the relationship between law enforcement and its citizens, encouraging nonpartisan voting activities and increasing the opportunities for quality education for everyone.

The key leaders from each team include Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman and Head Coach J.B. Bickerstaff; Browns General Manager Andrew Berry and Head Coach Kevin Stefanski; and Indians President of Baseball Operations Chris Antonetti, General Manager Mike Chernoff and Manager Terry Francona. The group will also utilize their respective team platforms as individuals and collectively to coordinate activities that invoke a call to action and positive outcomes. Players from each team will also have an opportunity to get involved.

“We have an extraordinary opportunity to make a lasting impact on society and the Cavaliers are committed to help bring about change,” said Altman. “The social and economic disparity in our community reveals some ugly truths, and Coach Bickerstaff and I are honored to be at the table to address these issues with such a prominent group of our peers. We never take for granted our place in the fabric of Cleveland and hopefully our coming together inspires others to join us.”

While initial activations will concentrate on voting, voter education and nonpartisan voter registration, this group will also connect and work in partnership with community and civic leaders and minority organizations to address issues impacting the individuals they represent.

“We understand the platform our organization has to make a positive impact on these important issues,” said Berry. “When Coach Stefanski and I began discussing how we might be able to elevate and broaden that impact by expanding the dialogue to our counterparts in Cleveland, it quickly became apparent that partnering with the other teams in our city would help our region come together so we can collectively address the problems that we’ve all been working to help solve independently.”

The foundation of this alliance is the community’s emotional connection to the Cavaliers, Browns and Indians and the platform each share to be a positive agent of change.

“We recognize the profound impact that professional sports have on the greater Cleveland community, and the enormous responsibility that comes with such a platform,” said Antonetti. “While the circumstances that highlighted the need for this partnership are disheartening, Tito, Mike and I are excited by the opportunity to work with such a thoughtful and diverse group of leaders to identify opportunities to be a positive force for change. There is a lot of work to do, and we believe that this partnership will serve to amplify our collective impact.”

August 26, 2020

CHICAGO – In honor of Lucas Giolito’s historic no-hitter on Tuesday, the Chicago White Sox are offering fans the opportunity to purchase a commemorative ticket and bring home a part of White Sox history. The limited-edition printed tickets will go on sale Thursday, August 27 at 10 a.m. **at whitesox.com/giolito**.

Orders will be mailed out within four to six weeks of purchase. The sale will be available through Sunday, September 13.

“While White Sox fans everywhere were following every pitch of Lucas Giolito’s historic game from home, their energy and support was felt throughout the ballpark,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox chief revenue and marketing officer. “It was a lights-out pitching performance that fans won’t soon forget, and we wanted to create a way to help our White Sox family bring a piece of that game home.”

Giolito’s performance is the 19th no-hitter in White Sox history in the victory against the Pirates on August 25 and the first White Sox no-hitter since Philip Humber’s perfect game on April 21, 2012 at Seattle.
