Winkler was placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to March 30, MLB.com reports. Winkler remains out indefinitely after suffering a fractured elbow last April. He seemingly has a lot of rehab ahead before being able to contribute to the Braves, though that will likely happen at some point in 2017.
Winkler (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. The 27-year-old still sits without a timetable to return to throwing off a mound, so the Braves made the easy move to move him to the DL. Winkler is still recovering from a fractured elbow he suffered back in April of last season, and although his return date is murky, a 2017 debut sometime in the summer seems to be the best bet at this point.
Winkler (elbow) is currently throwing from 120 feet, and is hoping to be cleared to pitch off a mound before training camp ends, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. It's been a rough couple of years for Winkler, who fractured his elbow last April while throwing a pitch just after making his return from Tommy John surgery. The 27-year-old isn't expected to be ready to compete for a spot in the big league bullpen until sometime this summer, but until he's able to get back on a mound, the Braves won't have a firm timetable for his recovery.
Winkler (elbow) is "still behind" in his rehab process according to manager Brian Snitker, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Winkler fractured his elbow back in April, but it seems like there hasn't been much progress in his recovery. It's unclear just how far behind the other pitchers he is or how much longer he'll have to sit out, but that should become clearer as spring training progresses.
Winkler (elbow) will see Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday to see if there's any ligament damage, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Early indications seem to say that there isn't ligament damage, but given Winkler's history of elbow issues, the Braves wanted to play it safe and check for ligament damage anyway. Winkler's rehab process will likely hinge on what Dr. Andrews says, so Wednesday's appointment could affect how long the right-hander is forced to sit out.
