CHICAGO, Illinois (WKBN) – Cleveland Indians’ starting pitcher Aaron Civale left Monday night’s game against the Cubs with an injured middle finger on his throwing hand.
He tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings before calling for the trainers. He was then replaced by reliever Bryan Shaw.
Civale allowed just three hits on the night with a total of five strikeouts.
The Indians’ pitching staff has battled multiple injuries of late.
Reigning Cy Young Award winner Shane Bieber is on the 10-day injured list with a strained right shoulder.
Fellow starter Zach Plesac is working his way back from a fractured finger that he suffered after ripping off his shirt and catching the finger on a clubhouse chair.
