ed left fielder Chad Pinder on the 10-day disabled list with a left elbow laceration Michael Lorenzen Jersey , the team announced Sunday.The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reported Pinder was involved in a car accident in Denver on Saturday and suffered a gruesome arm injury:Susan Slusser susanslusserPinder sustained elbow injury in a car accident yesterday. Can say much more about it but he and everyone else involved are all ok.Susan Slusser susanslusserPinder needed three stitches on elbow, some butterfly stitches on his arm and he won be allowed to swing for awhile.He says his fianc茅e has a bruise. They were checked out fully and are ok.Susan Slusser susanslusserPinder says his entire arm and his pants were covered in blood.Very scary situation. Accident was in downtown Denver around noon yesterday.Pinder was not driving.Pinder is averaging .259 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI through 71 games for the Athletics. His 1.4 WAR is sixth among Oakland position players, perFanGraphs.Although it's unclear when Pinder might be able to return to the field, Slusser's report he "won't be allowed to swing for awhile" likely means he could be out for an extended period of time.The A's recalled Franklin Barreto to take Pinder's spot on the 25-man roster. Khris Davis, meanwhile, will continue to fill in for Pinder in left field. Davis, who has spent much of the season as the designated hitter, started in left for each of Oakland'slast three games.The Athletics have been one of the biggest surprises in MLB and sit one game back of the Seattle Mariners for the final wild-card spot in the American League. Losing Pinder isn't a critical blow to Oakland's playoff hopes, but it's unquestionably a setback for the team in its quest to return to the postseason for the first time since 2014. SCOTTSDALE , Ariz. (AP) — For nearly three years, Johnny Cueto pitched with a stabbing pain in his right elbow. He won 18 games for San Francisco in 2016 and started the All-Star game that year dealing with the discomfort.How he did so, Cueto isn’t sure. And the animated right-hander can now envision how great it will be once he’s back on the mound and pain-free following Tommy John reconstructive surgery.“It was a lot for me to deal with. It was almost three years with pain in the elbow, and strong pain,” said Cueto, who turns 33 on Friday. “It’s not easy. Last year I started well, but it’s a mental pain, it’s a pain that felt like someone stuck a knife in my elbow and stabbed it over and over again. It was unbearable and I don’t know how I was able to pitch and block the pain.”Cueto arrived in Arizona a couple of days behind the Giants pitchers and catchers because of personal reasons and had his physical Thursday. He is scheduled to throw next week for the first time since his August operation.The Giants’ rotation was plagued by injuries for a second straight year in 2018 with Cueto, ace lefty Madison Bumgarner and right-hander Jeff Samardzija all missing significant time.Cueto is down about 20 pounds to 226 thanks to regular meals of salad and fish. Yet he expects to be back at 230 or more once he’s ready to return — hopefully before season’s end around Sept. 1 Jonathan Lucroy Jersey , to which Cueto noted, “If that’s the case I’ll be very happy.”“We would love to see Johnny start. That means we probably are sitting in a pretty good position,” manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday following a successful workout after one rainstorm, before it began pouring again. “But we’re not going to do something that doesn’t make sense with our medical staff and where he’s at. Because you get through that then you have another offseason to really heal up. We’ll see where he’s at when we get to August.”Cueto acknowledged he will let the experts guide him when it comes to a timeline and taking each important step along the way to come back.“Right now I feel like I’m ready but I know I’m not,” he said. “My frustration was at the beginning when I couldn’t move the arm to take a shower, but right now I feel normal and like any other pitcher. I know what my problem is. The only thing I have to do is take it easy and continue with my rehab.”He begins the fourth season of a $130 million, six-year contract he signed before the 2016 season.Cueto did his offseason rehab back home in the Dominican Republic, where one of his half-dozen horses, Popeye Carlos Gonzalez Jersey , just died.He made 25 starts in 2017 then just nine with 53 innings last year before surgery. On Friday, he plans to throw a plastic ball against a trampoline-like screen.When appropriate, he will embrace the chance to mentor the young pitchers, particularly those from Latin America who look up to Cueto’s example in training and his accomplishments on the mound.“I feel really good. I’m working out and conditioning,” Cueto said. “I’m working hard to return strong to help my team. … I just want to make sure that my rehab is coming along well, that’s my main concern right now.”
