Minor Moves: Matt Gorski and Omar Cruz Head to Injured List

Altoona placed outfielder Matt Gorski and left-handed pitcher Omar Cruz on the 7-day injured list. Gorski left last night’s game on a cart after injuring himself while slowing up for a stand-up triple.

Gorski is hitting .294/.376/.664 in 67 games this season, with 23 homers and 17 stolen bases, splitting his time between Altoona and Greensboro.

Cruz last pitched on Tuesday when he threw a scoreless inning. He has struggled in his return to Altoona, posting a 5.51 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP  in 50.2 innings, with 57 strikeouts.

Jason Delay has been assigned to Altoona, though that might be a move made out of convenience, since he is the third-string catcher for the Pirates and Altoona is home, leaving him close to Pittsburgh if needed.

If any more moves pop up today, we will add them here.

UPDATES: Here’s the injury news. Gorski is a quad injury and Cruz is an elbow issue.

Is it weird that there’s no mention of the type of injuries?

At least we know that they will be classified as minor!

7-day IL will turn into 60 day which will turn into 1yr.

Gorski having to be carted off can’t be good ☹️
