Eric O’Flaherty MRI reveals only inflammation

An MRI on the left shoulder of Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Eric O’Flaherty revealed only inflammation.

O’Flaherty will be shut down until he regains the full motion of his shoulder but the good news here for the Athletics is that there is nothing structurally wrong. The 30-year-old has a 11.57 ERA and 2.29 WHIP over seven innings this season.

After joining the Atheletics roster at the end of the 2014 season he was able to pitch in 21 games but ended the season with elbow discomfort.
