Loses two more points off overall rating
Future Hall of Famer Sammy Pierce was placed on the 15-day disabled list with soreness in his shoulder. The 35-year-old Huntington starting pitcher has now been placed on the disabled list twice since joining the Riverdogs prior to season 12. Last season, Pierce was placed on the 60-day DL for the first time in his career with a shoulder sprain.
Pierce has now lost a total of seven points off of his overall rating since the beginning of season 12, thanks in large part to the pair of injuries.
