(GAME DATE — May 12, 2020) — Doctors in St. Petersburg said Jose Soto might not play anymore this year. The Admirals starting pitcher suffered a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament during a game against the Seattle Salts and will be out for at least 10 months. Club officials told BNN they do not expect him to return to the team this season.
To date this season Soto sports a 5-2 record with a 1.65 ERA in 8 starting assignments. He has held the opposition to a .201 batting average and has 72 strikeouts in 54.2 innings.
The three-time Sandy Koufax Award winner was relatively healthy until now, avoiding stints on the disabled list since late August of 2018, when he missed the postseason that year due to a elbow problems.
