Zych (shoulder) suffered a setback last week, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. His timetable had been pushed back once already, and Zych is now without any sort of clear timetable following the setback. He was forced to shut down his throwing program, just as he was about to start throwing bullpen sessions, but is expected to pick up a baseball later in the week.
Zych (shoulder) is unlikely to rejoin the Mariners until at least late June, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. Zych is scheduled to begin throwing off a mound this week, but since he's been sidelined since early May with rotator cuff tendinitis, the rehab process will be fairly extensive. Once he demonstrates he's healthy, Zych should claim a meaningful setup role ahead of closer Steve Cishek.
Zych (shoulder) could be ready to throw a bullpen session within one week, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Zych still needs everything to go as planned, but it's a step in the right direction for the young right-hander. Once ready, look for Zych to be used in middle relief.
Zych (shoulder) isn't likely to return to active duty before mid-June at the earliest, the News Tribune reports. The right-hander had been given a four-week timetable when he was placed on the disabled list with tendinitis in his rotator cuff May 3, but that gets pushed back by about 10 days. Zych has started to play catch on flat ground, but hasn't yet progressed to throwing from a mound.
Zych (shoulder) is hoping to resume flat-ground throwing this weekend, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Evidently, the inflammation in Zych's shoulder has already reduced some in the week since he landed on the DL. This news does not necessarily move up Zych's four-week estimated recovery timetable, but if he's able to throw by this weekend, it would bode well for his chances of returning early next month.
