Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Throws bullpen session pain-free
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer (shoulder) threw his second bullpen session of spring on Tuesday, noting he felt no pain afterwards, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

This is obviously good news for the 25-year-old, who at this point last season was already starting to feel pain and taper off. The Royals are continuing to bring him along slowly, after he failed to pitch more than 65 innings in each of the last three seasons due to injuries. He is set to start his first Cactus League game Sunday.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Throwing pain-free
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zimmer (shoulder) said Saturday that he is pain-free and throwing well after thoracic outlet syndrome rehab, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

The 25-year-old is progressing along schedule after being shut down for the season in July last year. While it is good news that he is throwing without pain, the surgery is a serious shoulder procedure that has proven an issue for other pitchers in the past. Zimmer hasn't pitched more than 65 innings in any season since 2013.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Will be ready for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer (shoulder) completed a four-week throwing program and will be ready for the start of spring training, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

The throwing program was standard protocol for pitchers recovering from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, which Zimmer underwent in mid July. While he is expected to be ready for spring training, this is a serious shoulder procedure that has been a limiting factor in the careers of other pitchers. Zimmer has frontline stuff when healthy, but he needs to be heavily discounted due to the mounting health concerns with his shoulder.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer (shoulder) will undergo Thoracic Outlet Syndrome surgery, which will keep him out for the remainder of the 2016 season, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Zimmer, who has been bothered by shoulder issues throughout his career, was placed on the minor league DL at Double-A Northwest Arkansas back in June. With his condition failing to improve, he'll undergo surgery, which is expected to take place in a couple of weeks. While it will end Zimmer's 2016 season, he's expected to be ready for spring training.

Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Placed on 7-day DL with shoulder fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zimmer was placed on the 7-day DL at Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Sunday due to shoulder fatigue, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

Zimmer has been bothered by shoulder issues throughout his career, and this latest setback is yet another discouraging sign. He's been limited to just three starts this season and may need to rest for a week or longer in order for any soreness he's experiencing to subside. The Royals will continue to proceed cautiously with their prized pitching prospect, who hasn't tossed more than 75 innings in any season since 2013.
