That isn't an uncommon practice in baseball, and Matz received the same injections past year. Teammate Jacob deGrom underwent a similar procedure last September.

perth_map

Minnesota also optioned Nik Turley to Triple-A and recalled right-handed pitcher Tim Melville, who will start Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader in Chicago.
