Injury Sidelines Cuurt Olesen For Year

Thursday, March 1st, 2040
The doctors have spoken and Cuurt Olesen of the Mirkwood Sylvan didn’t like what he heard. The 25-year-old reliever is almost certainly gone for the rest of the year and depending on his progress could miss some of next season as well. Olesen sustained his season-ending injury during the Erebor Eagles game yesterday at Spring Ballpark. He had to leave the game because he hurt himself while throwing a pitch. Today the Mirkwood medical staff reported Olesen had a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament and would be absent from the lineup for at least 9 months.

The Gwaihir Reliever Award goes to the Shire Conference reliever who put forward the strongest season.

This season, that player was Ludrak Trollgobbler of the Mirkwood Sylvan, who was above all his peers in 2039.

On the season, Trollgobbler pitched 91.1 innings, with 96 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.27. He also had 46 saves in 81 relief appearances.

Gandealas Fáldur of the Rivendell Royals finished second in voting, while Celain Buckland of the Bywater Bounders finished third.
