Diagnosis found a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in the right knee. The Orange County Register expected a six- to nine-month recovery period. This is a serious injury that cannot be guaranteed not only for this season but also for next season's opening game.
Peña had eight wins, three losses and an ERA of 4.58 in 22 games (seven starts).
Canning, who made his big league debut this season and had four wins, six losses and an average earned run average of 4.76 in 16 games (15 games in advance), also had problems with his elbow. For now, no structural damage is reported in MRI examinations.
Simmons felt something wrong with his ankle the previous day during batting practice. Having suffered an ankle ligament injury in May, he was put on the disabled list after a medical examination found a ligament problem. The anticipated recovery period for both players is not yet known.
