Dodgers’ Dave Roberts Confirms ‘No Level’ of Concern For Tyler Glasnow After Leaving Game Early

The Los Angeles Dodgers had themselves a scare during Saturday’s win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Their ace, right-handed pitcher Tyler Glasnow, was on the mound, and like he’s been all season long, he was dominant. Glasnow had a stellar performance, earning the win.

However, it only lasted six innings as he was forced to exit the game due to cramping in his hand. Seeing him in pain was not fun, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters, including Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, that there is”not any level of concern” with Glasnow’s injury.

Harris shared via X.

Glasnow was spectacular in his six innings of work. He recorded nine strikeouts, only allowed two hits and one earned run and issued three walks in 95 pitches. Regardless, the 30-year-old would have been done after 95 pitches and six innings, but he had no choice but to exit the game after his hand cramping.

Given his injury history, it’s fair to expect the worst; however, hand cramps shouldn’t be too much of a big deal. The right-hander is considered day-to-day, with his next start slated to be next Saturday at home against NL powerhouse the Atlanta Braves.

We should expect Glasnow on the mound next weekend and continue his dominant season. Through seven starts, the right-hander has a 5-1 record, 2.72 ERA, 53 strikeouts, and a 0.93 WHIP in 43 innings.

  1. I’ve had periods of severe hand cramps, when I could barely open them for weeks. Three things really help: exercise tools, magnesium, and, believe it or not, Copperfit gloves (I’m always a big skeptic, but damn, they worked for me).
