Hendriks (groin, hip) threw his third bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to face hitters again in extended spring training Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. Hendriks is inching closer to game action, and Friday's session will mark his second overall against hitters. The veteran reliever has been on the disabled list since April 14, but he appears to finally be in the latter stages of his recovery process.
Hendriks (groin, hip) is set to throw minor-league batting practice Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The veteran reliever has been sidelined since April 14, and he's undergone a cyst removal from his hip during his time on the disabled list in addition to dealing with the groin strain that landed him there. Hendriks will presumably progress to minor-league rehab outings if all goes well Thursday, although another session against live hitters could also be warranted.
Hendriks (groin) will throw off the mound next week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Hendriks will get back on the mound for the first time since hitting the DL on April 14 with a groin strain. The right-hander resumed throwing a week after his injury, but he required a procedure to remove a cyst from his hip near the end of April. There still isn't a concrete timetable for his return, but an activation once the Athletics return home May 22 seems to be a reasonable date.
Hendriks (groin, hip) has yet to resume throwing off a mound, Michael Wagaman of MLB.com reports. Hendriks originally went on the disabled list on April 14 with a groin strain, but he then had a cyst removed from his hip 10 days later as well. The veteran reliever would probably like to press the reset button on his 2018 campaign, as in addition to his injuries, he's allowed a 9.00 ERA and 3.33 WHIP over three innings across six appearances.
Hendriks (groin) received a platelet rich plasma injection and had a cyst removed from his hip Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. There had been some hope that Hendriks would be able to come off the disabled list Tuesday, as he became eligible April 24. However, he'll remain on the shelf a bit longer as he deals with this recent setback. A return timetable should take shape as his level of activity increases.
