A blow for Ivan Rangel today — team doctors confirmed he will miss 3 months with a torn triceps. Rangel suffered the injury throwing a pitch. Although officials from the California Tidals are confident he’ll make a full recovery, doubts will persist about Rangel’s ability to return fully fit with an injury of this nature.
The 23-year-old closer had only just made his first appearance of the season tonight, earning the save. The right hander had 16 saves last year in his rookie season with the Tidals, but has suffered a string of minor injuries since joining the Miami Storm organization as an international amateur free agent out of Cuba in 2017.
