Berrios isn't expected to miss a start due to the blister that caused him to exit Saturday's game, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Berrios still delivered seven scoreless innings before leaving the game with a pair of runners on base -- both of which came around to score -- but the blister appears to be a minor concern. The 25-year-old is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday and likely slots in to start Friday at the White Sox.
Berrios was forced to exit Saturday's game against the Royals due to a blister on his right ring finger, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Berrios threw seven scoreless innings but allowed the first two batters to reach base in the eighth before leaving with the injury. Both runners would come around to score, as would another batter later in the inning, condemning Berrios to a no-decision despite his strong outing. It remains to be seen whether or not the blister will put his next start at risk.
Berrios was pulled with an unspecified injury in the eighth inning of his start against the Royals on Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Berrios cruised through the first seven innings, tossing only 83 pitches while allowing zero runs and striking out three. He ran into trouble in the top of the eighth, ceding a base hit and a walk before leaving the mound with team trainer Tony Leo. The Twins should provide an update regarding the nature of Berrios' departure later in the day, but LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune speculates that the right-hander may have been dealing with a nail or blister issue.
Berrios (8-3) gave up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 through eight innings, taking the loss against the Red Sox on Monday.
Berrios allowed three straight hits to start the game to allow his only run, but proceeded to dominate the rest of his outing with 19 swinging strikes. The 25-year old continued his consistency with his fifth straight quality start and has a 1.85 ERA in that span. Berrios will look to keep rolling in his next start Saturday against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
Berrios gave up one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out six through 6.2 innings in a no-decision against the Mariners on Wednesday.
Berrios was hittable and gave up a solo home run, but he continuously worked his way out of trouble and forced 14 swinging strikes in the quality start. He also limited the hard contact with an average exit velocity of 84 MPH. The 25-year-old is 8-2 with a 3.01 ERA and an 8.4 K/9 through 14 starts this season. Berrios will take on the Red Sox in his next start Monday at Target Field.
