Rusin to DL with foot injury; Musgrave reinstated

July 24th, 2018

DENVER -- The Rockies put left-handed pitcher Chris Rusin on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. Left-hander was reinstated from the DL after suffering a right hip flexor strain.
Rusin has struggled this year compared to last year. He is 0-2 with a 6.81 ERA in 35 relief appearances this season. In 39 2/3 innings pitched, he has walked 20 and struck out 34. Last season, he made a career-high 60 relief appearances, going 5-1 with a career-best 2.65 ERA in 85 innings pitched.

It is Rusin's second stint on the DL this season after going on the 10-day DL on April 23 with a right intercostal strain.
Musgrave made his Major League debut on April 23 against San Diego this season. Before he went on the disabled list on July 14, he went 1-3 with a 4.76 ERA in 20 relief appearances (28 1/3 innings pitched). Musgrave has allowed 16 walks and struck out 20.

Musgrave recorded his first win on July 13 against the Mariners, when he threw three innings and allowed three runs and two hits. Musgrave's right flexor strain flared up during the last inning of that outing.
Musgrave made one rehab appearance for Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday. He threw 33 pitches in two innings, walked two and struck out two.
"Felt good, felt normal, body felt good, which is the main thing," Musgrave said on Tuesday. "Everything has been going well so far."
