Braves Ace Receives Bad News After MRI on Throwing Elbow

The Atlanta Braves announced yesterday on X that right-handed starting pitcher Spencer Strider underwent an MRI that revealed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. He will be further evaluated by Dr. Keith Meister in Arlington, TX, at a date yet to be determined.

Within just one week, MLB has seen a few pitchers go down for the rest of the year due to injuries. Eury Pérez and Shane Bieber both have to undergo Tommy-John surgery. Along with many other pitchers in Major League Baseball. It's very unfortunate to see so many injuries with pitchers recently.

Spencer Strider just a little over a month ago:

"There's an injury epidemic in the game regardless of velocity. If anything, the league is making rule changes despite an injury epidemic that could very well be encouraging injuries, such as the pitch clock, limiting the number of pitchers on roster, how many pitching changes you can make, how many mound visits you can have - all those things are making pitching harder and potentially, I think, making health more difficult to manage."


"With injury rates where they are, I don't know how we can blindly decrease the clock after the worst injury season in baseball, arguably, without having a conversation about injuries. The league talks about creating more action on the field. Well, when the best players in the league are hurt, how much interest is there in the game?"

Spencer Strider has solidified himself as one of the top pitchers in the game. Last year, Strider had a historic season, especially with his strikeouts. In 32 games last season, Strider had a 20-5 record, 3.86 ERA, 281 strikeouts, and a 1.093 WHIP.

Whenever there's news about a pitcher undergoing an MRI on their throwing elbow, it's never good. Spencer Strider is the latest pitcher to have that happen to, and now he received awful news. The only hope is that Spencer Strider can avoid a major injury and be back out on the mound sooner then expected.
