Wood threw two simulated innings Saturday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Wood is slowly rebuilding his strength following a month-long shutdown period, progressing from long toss to mound work and now to live sessions. He appears to be inching close a minor league rehab assignment, but Wood's eventual stint in the minors figures to be a lengthy one given the extent of the layoff.
Wood (elbow) will throw to hitters during a simulated session on Saturday, reports Dodger Insider. Wood isn't eligible to return until July 31. He seems to be tracking towards an early-to-mid August return, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Wood (elbow) has begun throwing off a mound, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports. Left elbow soreness has kept Wood sidelined since May 31. He's about two weeks behind schedule, but he remains on pace to return in early August. Wood, who owns a 3.99 ERA in 10 starts this season, isn't eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list until July 31.
Wood (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday. Wood's timetable does not have a major impact on his estimated return date with his move to the 60-day disabled list, but the move was necessary in order to add Brock Stewart to the 40-man roster. Wood has been on the DL since May 31 due to left posterior elbow soreness, but he's been making strides in his recovery and is close to starting a throwing program. Still, now that Wood is on the 60-day DL, he'll be out through the end of July rather than mid-July, which was the initial estimated return.
Wood (elbow) will begin a throwing program next week, JP Hoonstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Wood was initially expected to be shut down for four weeks after landing on the 15-day disabled list at the end of May with a posterior impingement in his throwing elbow, but the 25-year-old lefty may be slightly ahead of schedule. According to Hoonstra, Wood had fluid drained from his elbow and received a cortisone shot, which has significantly reduced the inflammation in his elbow. The Dodgers' throwing program for Wood will last a maximum of three weeks, and the hope is that he'll be ready to return to game action by mid-July.
