INJURY UPDATE: Triston McKenzie to Make His 2018 Debut
Indians pitching prospect Triston McKenzie has finished rehabing a sore right foream and will make his 2018 debut with the AA Akron Ducks (according to Indians Prospective @IndiansPro). McKenzie has yet to play in 2018 and the assignment to the Ducks marks an advancement over his 2017 campaign with the Hillcats (A-Adv), where he led the league with 186 SO over 143 IP. At just 20, McKenzie will join a somewhat elite group young arms that are pitching at AA under the age of 21 (currently 5). McKenzie was a 2015 CBA pick by the Indians and was ranked #22 overall (Pipeline) prior to 2018.
