KANSAS CITY http://www.whitesoxfanproshop……mas-jersey , Mo. (AP) — Luke Weaver cut his finger while opening a food tray in the clubhouse at Kansas City and was scratched from his start against the Royals.Weaver had been scheduled to pitch Sunday.The accident occurred Saturday night when the righty sliced the index finger on his pitching hand on the aluminum foil covering a tray. Super glue was applied, but it did not hold sufficiently for Weaver to pitch deep into a game.Tyson Ross, claimed by the Cardinals last week off waivers from San Diego, pitched in place of Weaver.“He cut it on the piece of the topping,” Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said. “We found out about in the seventh inning. It just made sense long term to give him the day off.”“It’s on his right index finger. He probably could have started, but it just made sense to not push it and have him throw 90 or 100 pitches. We didn’t want him to miss another start Bobby Jenks Jersey ,” he said. “We want to put this behind him and have him move on to the next start, and give Tyson Ross an opportunity. It’s worked out for Tyson and for us to have a quality starter, and he’s available and is on more than regular rest.”The 24-year-old Weaver is 6-10 with a 4.66 ERA in 23 starts. The Houston Astros placed starting pitcher Charlie Morton on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder issue, while reliever Chris Devenski was activated, according to Brian McTaggart of 34-year-old Morton is in the midst of a career season, having been named to his first All-Star Game this year. Morton is 13-3 with a 3.14 ERA and has 185 strikeouts in 152 innings pitched http://www.whitesoxfanproshop……dan-jersey , and he’s certainly in the running for his first American League Cy Young Award.Entering play on Wednesday, Houston was 1.5 games up on the Oakland Athletics for the AL West lead. The defending World Champions will cruise to another postseason berth, but the only question is if they’ll be forced to play in the single elimination Wild Card game.advertising Credit: Troy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsLosing Morton for the time being hurts the Astros, but they still own baseball’s best rotation and are built to get by without him. Justin Verlander (13-8 with a 2.72 ERA), Gerrit Cole (12-5 with a 2.85 ERA), Dallas Keuchel (10-10 with a 3.54 ERA) Carlton Fisk Jersey , and Lance McCullers Jr. (10-6, 3.93 ERA), are all enjoying All-Star-like seasons. Houston will be fine without Morton for the time being.Morton and Keuchel are both set to hit the free agent market in the winter, and the former has picked the perfect time to pitch a career season. With a strong showing in the postseason, Morton will certainly set himself up to be one of the highest-paid pitchers in baseball during the winter.advertisingThe Astros just need to hope that Morton’s shoulder injury won’t last long-term, and that he’ll be at full health in the postseason. The AL is loaded with elite teams http://www.whitesoxfanproshop……reu-jersey , but none of them (Oakland, Boston, Cleveland or New York), have the rotation depth and talent that the Astros boast.A healthy Morton makes the Astros that much more dangerous, and it would put them in position to successfully defend that World Series.NEXT: PLAYERS THESE MLB TEAMS SHOULD HAVE NEVER TRADED
