Seranthony Dominguez Injury

There were two losses for the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen on Sunday. The team said that right-handed pitcher Corey Knebel has been placed on the 60-day injured list with a torn shoulder capsule and will not pitch again this season. On the other side, right-hander Seranthony Dominguez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to triceps tightness.

Earlier in the season, Knebel closed games for the Phillies. He is now preparing for stem-cell therapy in the hopes of avoiding surgery. Knebel, who was 30 at the time, with a 1.46 K/BB ratio and a 3.43 ERA (120 ERA+) in 44 2/3 innings that year. Considering he may leave for free agency after the upcoming season, the injury could mean the end of his time in Philadelphia.

Dominic González, a 27-year-old reliever, has been manager Rob Thomson’s go-to closer this year and has been the Phillies’ most effective reliever. After 44 innings pitched, Dominguez has a 1.64 ERA (251 ERA+) with 54 strikeouts and 13 walks (all of which were unintentional).

Dominguez has been credited by our very own Mike Axisa as a major reason for the team’s success since Joe Girardi was replaced by Mike Thomson in early June. Dominguez’s triceps injury does not appear to be a major cause for concern at this time, and the team is hopeful that he will only need to spend a very minimal amount of time on the injured list (IL).

This is bad news for the Phillies’ bullpen at the worst possible time. They are 2 1/2 games ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers heading into Sunday’s rubber match with the New York Mets, and they are in second place in the National League’s wild-card standings, behind only the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Superstar Bryce Harper is slated to begin a rehab assignment this week, and following this week’s series with the Mets, the Phillies will play 22 consecutive games against teams with losing records.
