Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jose Urena was pulled from his last start with cramping in his wrist. Following the game, Urena told reporters that it was something that has happened to him before when he throws a lot of curveballs.
Prior to Friday’s game vs. the New York Yankees, Tigers manager AJ Hinch spoke to reporters and he said that though Urena is lobbying to make his next start (against the Brewers), the team is leaning towards skipping him as a precaution, though a final decision has not yet been made.
A.J. Hinch said today Jose Ureña is lobbying to pitch next week against the Brewers, but the Tigers are leaning toward having him skip a start as a precaution. They'll have a solid decision in the next day or two. https://t.co/dz7npJItCJ
