Injury Update: Phillies closer Seranthony Dominguez going through tricep soreness
Phillies closer Seranthony Dominguez is feeling soreness in his right tricep and will be re-evaluated with an MRI on Sunday, according to manager Rob Thomson.
Dominguez felt the soreness ahead of Game 1 while playing catch, which is why he didn’t throw in both games. The Phillies fell to the Mets in Game 1 but got back in the win column at night thanks to an outstanding start from Bailey Falter. Dominguez would’ve come into the game in the 9th if healthy, but instead, David Robertson threw the 8th and the 9th.

Seranthony has been fantastic for the Phils this season, holding a 1.64 ERA and 54 Ks in 44 total innings. He’s made 46 appearances, tallying 9 saves and four wins in that time. Dominguez has solidified himself as the Phillies closer of the future, as opposing batters are hitting just .170 against the 27-year-old in 2022.
The Phillies look to even the series on Sunday with Kyle Gibson on the mound. The Fightins need a good outing out of Gibby, as their bullpen threw 6.2 total innings on Saturday.
