The Atlanta Braves have placed left-hander Kolby Allard on the 60-day injured list after he was diagnosed with nerve inflammation in his left shoulder.
Allard, 25, was removed in the second inning of Sunday’s 8-1 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday, telling manager Brian Snitker he felt “some tingling in his fingers” after throwing a pitch. Snitker said following the game: “I just noticed him moving his arm and his shoulder and something didn’t look right.” Allard allowed four runs on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings.
Allard came to Atlanta in an offseason trade with the Rangers for Jake Odorizzi. Allard suffered a Grade 2 oblique strain during Spring Training and began the regular season on the injured list. He was reinstated three weeks ago and has made four appearances for the club since then. Allard has a 6.57 ERA in four games, including three starts.
The club hasn’t provided a specific timeline for Allard, but it appears they don’t expect him back within the next two months. The Braves recalled outfielder Forrest Wall, 27, from Triple-A Gwinnett before Monday night’s series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
