The Tigers shut down Teheran (shoulder) for the 2021 season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Teheran suffered a shoulder strain in early April after making one start, which was a five-inning, one-run effort against Cleveland on April 3. He'll presumably be ready for the beginning of 2022, although it remains to be seen which club the pending free agent will pitch for next season.
Teheran (shoulder) was shut down from throwing after showing a drop in velocity and will be reevaluated, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Teheran threw a live bullpen session Saturday but will now have his rehab program halted due to a dip in velocity. The 30-year-old was already looking at a potential return in mid-to-late September, so any shutdown of more than a few days may end his prospects of pitching again this season.
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.
