Tigers general manager Al Avila said last week that Teheran (shoulder) has a chance to return from the 60-day injured list in late September, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Updates on Teheran have been scarce since he was diagnosed April 11 with a right shoulder strain, and that's likely a reflection of the limited progress he's made in his rehab over the past three-plus months. Given that Teheran isn't even close to beginning a rehab assignment following his prolonged shutdown, the Tigers are bracing for the likelihood that he won't pitch again in 2021. Teheran is 30 years old and set to become a free agent this winter, so Detroit has little incentive to rush him back when he probably doesn't have much of a future in the organization.
Teheran (shoulder) hasn't yet resumed throwing, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Teheran has been on the 60-day injured list with a shoulder strain since April 11, and manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that the right-hander is still "pretty far away" from returning. Teheran is eligible to return from the injured list in early June, but it appears as though he'll miss significantly more time. A better idea of his return timetable could come into focus once he's able to resume throwing.
The Tigers transferred Teheran to the 60-day injured list Sunday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Teheran was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday with a shoulder strain, but the Tigers didn't immediately specify how long the injury might keep the right-hander on the shelf. The club's decision to transfer Teheran to the 60-day IL a day later implies that his shoulder injury is a rather significant one, and he'll now be sidelined until at least early June as a result. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for first baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez, whose contract was selected from the alternate site ahead of Sunday's series finale in Cleveland. Derek Holland and Michael Fulmer covered most of the innings while filling in for Teheran in a tandem start earlier this weekend, but Spencer Turnbull will most likely be the long-term replacement for Teheran upon returning from the COVID-19 injured list.
Teheran has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a right shoulder strain, retroactive to April 7. Teheran was scratched from his scheduled start against Cleveland on Friday due to triceps tightness, and he's now been diagnosed with a shoulder strain that will force him to miss additional time. Alex Lange was recalled by the Tigers in a corresponding move. Derek Holland could fill in as a starter while Teheran is sidelined.
Teheran was scratched from Friday's start against Cleveland due to triceps tightness. Teheran went through his pre-game throwing program Friday, but he was shut down as a precautionary measure due to a triceps issue. The severity of the injury isn't yet known, but left-hander Derek Holland will start in his place against Cleveland.
