Carson Smith on injury: "my arm was just tired"

Posted On: May 17, 2018   |   Posted By: Yardbarker

Shortly after landing on the disabled list due to a subluxation in his shoulder that occurred upon throwing his glove out of frustration in the dugout, Red Sox reliever Carson Smith suggested that arm fatigue may have contributed to his injury (link via Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald). “I've thrown a lot lately and I think my arm was just tired,” said Smith, though his comments didn't sit well with manager Alex Cora. Cora flatly told reporters that he “agree” with Smith's assessment, adding that Boston's coaching staff checks in with its pitchers each day when determining who is or isn't available in relief. Smith gave the team no indication that he was feeling overworked. “It caught me by surprise,” Cora said of Smith's comment. “If he felt that way he should've told it to us or he should've mentioned it.” Smith, of course, has placed much of the blame for his injury on himself as well and expressed regret over the manner in which the injury occurred.More from the division...
