Cecil (wrist) said Wednesday that he expects to begin throwing 15-pitch, low-intensity bullpen sessions next week, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Cecil appears ready to move on to the next phase of his recovery from surgery to address carpal tunnel syndrome after throwing off flat ground from 90 to 120 feet over the past couple weeks without any discomfort. The lefty said he's regained full feeling in his fingers after developing the condition midway through spring training, resulting in him opening the campaign on the 60-day injured list. The 32-year-old said he's hopeful that he'll be ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment by mid-July before moving up to the big club by the end of that month.
Cecil (wrist) will begin a throwing program Monday, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports. It's been a long road for Cecil to even get to this point, as he underwent a carpal tunnel-related surgery back in early April. The veteran reliever will now begin the process of building his arm strength back up and isn't expect to be back until early July at the earliest.
Cecil (wrist) has returned to St. Louis to meet with the doctor who performed his wrist surgery earlier this spring and could be cleared to resume throwing as soon as this week, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The veteran has been recovering from the early April procedure. Whenever he's able to gain medical clearance, Cecil will return to the team's spring training facility in Jupiter, Florida to begin a four-week throwing program to build up his arm strength. Assuming no setbacks in the process, Cecil is expected to be ready for activation around the All-Star break.
Cecil underwent surgery on his left wrist earlier this week to address carpal tunnel symptoms in his wrist and forearm, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Cecil exclusively worked on his mechanics in spring training before being placed on the injured list due to a lack of feeling in two of his fingers, while also dealing with general arm fatigue. The 32-year-old is on the 60-day injured list and should be considered out indefinitely.
