Nick Sandlin

Nick Sandlin out for year

The Cleveland Guardians relief pitcher will miss the remainder of the postseason.

Cleveland’s bullpen will be down one relief arm for the rest of the postseason. Nick Sandlin has a Teres Major muscle strain that led to his removal from Saturday’s win over Tampa.

As expected the Guardians have replaced Sandlin on their postseason roster ahead of their series against the Yankees.

Nick Sandlin was a valuable member of Cleveland’s bullpen this season, striking out 41 batters in 44 innings. Sandlin allowed three earned runs over his last 26 appearances dating back to July 9th. Opponents hit just .148 and slugged .173 against the 25-year old reliever. Being without a pitcher who is able to shut down opponents will make things a bit more difficult for Cleveland as they continue their postseason quest.
