“It’s been reported as a lat strain,” manager Bryan Price said Sunday. “It’s not, it’s a trap, a trapezius major or minor, one of the two. Pick out which one you like the best. The reason I say this is that Johnny Cueto had a lat strain back in 2013 and it was a tenuous injury, something that was hard to get under wraps.

“With this particular injury with Brandon we can realistically expect him to be back here in a few weeks. But it’s not going to be one or two weeks and he’ll be back in the mix. At least two to three weeks of rest. This is something they can re-scan and check on the healing and decide if he can start throwing.”
