Tampa Bay Rays All-Star pitcher Shane McClanahan scratched during warm-up

·1-min read

Tampa Bay Rays All-Star left-hander Shane McClanahan was a late scratch from his scheduled start Tuesday because of what the team is calling a left shoulder impingement.

McClanahan was set to make his 25th start of the season Tuesday against the Miami Marlins, but the injury flared up while he was warming up in the bullpen. He was replaced by Shawn Armstrong, who tossed three scoreless innings in Tampa Bay’s 7-2 victory.

The 25-year-old McClanahan is among the leading contenders for the American League Cy Young Award this season. He is 11-5 with a 2.20 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP, striking out 182 batters over 147 innings.

McClanahan will undergo further testing Wednesday to determine whether he will be available to make his next turn through the rotation.
