San Diego, CA (KFVS) - San Diego Padres pitcher and former SEMO pitcher, Joey Lucchesi, was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday due to a right hip strain.
Lucchesi has been off to a great start in his rookie season in the majors, posting a 3.23 ERA with 48 strikeouts in 9 starts and has a 3-2 record.
It's possible he may only miss one start due to some days off for the Padres.
Lucchesi will begin his rehab in Peoria, AZ.
Lucchesi was two-time OVC Pitcher of the Year in 2015 and 2016. He was drafted by the Padres in the fourth round of the MLB draft in 2016.
