Aaron Civale News
The Cleveland Guardians placed pitcher Aaron Civale (glute) on the 15-day injured list with a sore left glute. He exited his previous start early against the Detroit Tigers with a left glute cramp. Coming off his best start of the season, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings, the 26-year-old will miss the next few weeks. Civale has struggled this season, posting a 7.84 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and a 30:9 K: BB across 31 innings. Konnor Pilkington was called up from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move. Pilkington will start Thursday against the Detroit Tigers.
Cleveland Guardians right-hander Aaron Civale left with a left glute cramp during his Friday start against the Detroit Tigers. Civale fell while fielding a ball during the seventh inning. He remained in the game but only wound up throwing one more pitch before being replaced with one out in the seventh by Enyel De Los Santos. Civale was in the midst of one of his best starts of the year, having allowed just one unearned run over 6 1/3 innings of work while striking out three. The injury does not appear to be serious, leaving the door open for Civale to take his next turn through the rotation, provided he doesn't experience any setbacks.
Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Aaron Civale (finger) was activated from the 60-day injured list on Tuesday and will pitch against the visiting Minnesota Twins. The 26-year-old right-hander has been sidelined since mid-June with a finger injury but has been cleared to return after a successful rehab stint. Civale's return is certainly good news for fantasy managers as he is sporting a 10-2 record on the season with a 3.29 ERA and 76 strikeouts.
The Cleveland righty was having a pretty solid season in 2021 before the injury that cost him more than two months. All-in-all, he threw 124.1 innings with a mediocre 3.84 ERA but a strong 1.12 WHIP. That is pretty close to his career totals of a 3.76 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP through his 256 innings. He is not a high strikeout arm with a career strikeout rate below 21%. The appeal on Civale is the how deep he gets into games. In 21 starts last year, he reached at least six innings 13 times and went seven or more on seven occasions. Those are quite high rates for the state of the league currently, so he gets a significant boost in leagues that include the quality start. What he lacks in strikeout rate he makes up for a bit in walk rate with a very low career mark of 6.1% there. Last year, you were drafting Civale to be a workhorse innings-eater type guy for you. That could still be the case this year, but it is a little bit less certain now coming off the shortened 2021 season. With the way Cleveland has utilized their starting pitchers in recent history, I would feel pretty confident that he can get up into the 180-inning range and bring a good supply of wins and quality starts, but he's not going to help you a ton anywhere else. The decision to draft Civale around his ADP of 260 should depend on how your pitching staff looks at that point in the draft. If you need some safer innings, he might be your guy.
