The Texas Rangers have put Cole Hamels on the 10-day DL with a right oblique strain. The lefty could reportedly miss up to at least 8 weeks, sidelining him until possibly the All-Star break.
Hamels was 2-0 in his first five starts, with a 3.03 ERA.
Texas who is 11-16 and currently sitting in last place in the AL West, will rely heavily on Yu Darvish to carry this pitching staff in the absence of Hamels.
The Cleveland Indians have placed their ace Corey Kluber on the 10-day DL with lower back discomfort.
Kluber left the game early on Tuesday night with tightness in his back, and will now miss at least a start or two for the Indians.
In six starts this year, Kluber is 3-2 with a 5.06 ERA.
The New York Mets are without Noah Syndergaard for an unknown length of time, Madison Bumgarner is recovering, Felix Hernandez, Jon Gray, Aaron Sanchez, Aaron Nola, Sean Manaea....the list goes on and on.
