Robertson (elbow) became a free agent after the Phillies declined his team option Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. Rather than pay the veteran $12 million for his services next season, the Phillies will pay him a $2 million buyout to get his contract off the books. The 35-year-old righty will wind up making $184,000 per pitch over the course of his contract with the Phillies, as he landed on the injured list after throwing just 6.2 innings in 2019 and wound up requiring Tommy John surgery. He underwent the procedure late enough into that year that he was unable to return at any point in 2020. Injury and age risk will certainly suppress Robertson's market this winter, though there should still be plenty of interest in a pitcher with a career 2.90 ERA and 137 saves.
Robertson (elbow) won't throw for another six weeks and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Robertson recently faced a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery that forced him to be shut down. It's unclear if he'll be ready for spring training in 2021.

The 35-year-old appeared to be nearing the end of his recovery from Tommy John surgery as he advanced to throwing live batting practice earlier this month, but it's now possible he's unable to return this season. Robertson is scheduled to meet with the team in the near future to determine the next course of action.
Robertson (elbow) will throw a live batting practice session Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Robertson could take the mound for the Phillies sometime this season if he continues to progress without any setbacks.
Robertson (elbow) will throw in Philadelphia within the next few days before heading to the team's alternate training site, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

If his recovery continues smoothly, he'll have a shot to pitch at some point late this season, though the Phillies have yet to announce a target date for his return.
