Oakland Athletics Pitcher Placed On Injured List

The Oakland Athletics have placed Sam Moll on the 15-day injured list due to a shoulder strain.

Given how late it is into the season, it wouldn't be surprising to see Moll sit out the rest of the year. A shoulder strain is concerning for any pitcher, and with the A's completely out of the playoff race, there's no real need for Moll to risk worsening his injury. Instead, it would be wise for him to rest and prepare for the 2023 season instead.

Moll has been a rare bright spot on a terrible A's team this season. In 53 appearances, he has a 2-1 record to go along with a 2.91 ERA. Overall, it has been a good year for him, and he will be aiming to carry that over to the 2023 campaign from here.
