Hernandez said his shoulder felt good after Saturday's bullpen, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Hernandez tossed 25 pitches during Saturday's session, incorporating both fastballs and his changeup. After having his rehab slowed earlier in the month, Hernandez appears to be back on track as he has since thrown on multiple occasions without any setbacks. The 31-year-old is slated to toss another bullpen in the coming days, after which the next step in his recovery process should be clearer.
Hernandez (shoulder) played catch again Wednesday and is scheduled for a bullpen session Saturday, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports. The rehabbing right-hander is now almost a month removed from having been sidelined, and he appears to be making deliberate yet steady progress. Hernandez was forced to back off his rehab earlier in May after experiencing some discomfort, but has now thrown on multiple occasions without setbacks.
Hernandez (shoulder) played catch in the outfield before Thursday's game, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. The veteran right-hander was originally scheduled to throw on Wednesday, but his schedule was pushed back a day presumably out of caution. Hernandez has been sidelined with his shoulder inflammation since April 26, but now that he's resumed throwing in some form, the pace of his rehab should pick up.
Hernandez (shoulder) was examined by doctors again Saturday and the hope is that he'll resume playing catch in a few days, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. It was reported Friday that the team was backing off a little on Hernandez's throwing program, but it sounds like he could pick it back up next week. The Mariners' four best starting pitchers are all on the DL, and they are essentially using a Triple-A rotation at the moment.
The Mariners are "backing off a little" on Hernandez after he reported continued discomfort in his shoulder following two throwing sessions, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Hernandez was able to play catch twice this week, but with the discomfort lingering, the team will be forced to pump the brakes a bit with his rehab program. It's not entirely clear if the Mariners plan to shut him back down entirely for a set period or if they will allow him to play catch on a touch-and-go basis, but regardless, Hernandez is still a ways away from resuming mound work.
