Mills will be shut down for several days after experiencing elbow inflammation coming out of his most recent Grapefruit League appearance March 13, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports.
Though Mills' injury isn't believed to be a significant one, it'll more than likely take him out of contention for a spot in Boston's Opening Day bullpen. The Red Sox acquired the 27-year-old right-hander in December after he turned in a 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB over 29.1 innings in the majors with Seattle and Kansas City in 2022....

Mills appeared in 27 games between the Mariners and Royals in 2022 and had a 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB across 29.1 innings. The 27-year-old should see the majors at some point in 2023 even if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster, but he'll likely fill a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less

Royals' Wyatt Mills: Handed first loss
Mills (0-1) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two in one inning to take the loss Sunday versus the Blue Jays.
Mills has allowed runs in only two of his seven appearances with the Royals, but both of those outings have seen him tagged for two runs. He gave up a two-run home run to Alejandro Kirk in Sunday's contest, and the Royals couldn't get the right-hander off the hook. Mills now has a 4.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB in 15.1 innings between the Royals and the Mariners this season, and he should continue to see a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less

Mills has a 3.18 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 innings since he was called up by the Royals.
Mills has kept runs off the board in five of his six appearances, and he's earned two holds. He's been slightly more effective than he was with the Mariners to begin the season. The right-hander owns a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB across 14.1 innings between the two teams, though his 2.33 FIP suggests he's seen a little bad luck, which could lead to modest improvements in the second half of the campaign....
