HUNTSVILLE, Ala. â€” MRI results will keep Brian Garman shelved indefinitely, as the testing revealed a slight tear in his labrum.
The Wapakoneta native has been on the disabled list since June 24. He is a relief pitcher for the Double-A Huntsville (Ala.) Stars in minor league baseball, an affiliate of MLBâ€™s Milwaukee Brewers.
â€śMy doctors said the slight labrum tear is not consistent with a pitcherâ€™s injury and that itâ€™s probably an injury from football,â€ť Garman said. â€śThe doctors said they donâ€™t even think (the tear) is the cause of my pain.â€ť
Garman said his doctors feel his injury could an impingement or tendinitis, injuries he has previously suffered.
The 24-year-old will continue rehabilitating the injured area in Alabama, saying he is not sure how much longer the injury will keep him out of action.
â€śThere is a chance I go to Arizona and rehab,â€ť Garman said, talking about the Brewersâ€™ spring training facility in Phoenix, Ariz. â€śWeâ€™re kind of waiting to hear word on that.â€ť
First, Garman said he might return to Wapakoneta early next week during his teamâ€™s All-Star break.
Garman attended the University of Cincinnati for baseball and was drafted in the 17th round of the 2010 MLB draft by the Brewers. He is a Wapakoneta High School graduate.View more articles in:
