Pitching in intrasquad game
PCincinnati Reds
July 13, 2020
Shafer (arm) is scheduled to pitch in the Reds' intrasquad matchup Monday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Shafer dealt with a flexor mass irritation, but he appears to have recovered as he's slated to pitch in Monday's intrasquad game. Given his presence at camp, Shafer should be ready for Opening Day, but it's unclear whether he'll make the team's 30-man roster. The right-hander posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.66 WHIP over 34 appearances as a reliever for the Blue Jays last season.
