Schultz (elbow) threw for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in March, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. This is good progress for Schultz, who underwent the procedure on March 29. He won't be able to appear in a game until next season, but it appears that he's still on schedule with his rehab program.
Schultz (elbow) said via Twitter that he's working hard to return quickly and come back "stronger than ever." The right-handed reliever underwent Tommy John surgery March 29. Schultz is working his way through the long recovery process, but appears optimistic about his progress. He managed a 3.56 ERA and tidy 1.07 WHIP through 31 games for the Jays in 2015, but faltered last year and spent most of the campaign in the minors.
Schultz (elbow) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports. Schultz has already been ruled out for the season and will require a 12- to 18-month recovery timetable after undergoing Tommy John surgery a few days ago, so it's likely he'll eventually be moved to the 60-day DL when the Blue Jays are in need of more roster flexibility.
Schultz (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday and will miss the entire 2017 season, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports. Early indications were that Schultz was just undergoing surgery to remove bone chips from his throwing elbow, but the right-hander opted to go with the Tommy John procedure after ligament damage was detected. With Schultz facing a 12-to-18 month timeline for his recovery, he'll end up having missed much of the past two seasons due to injury, after hip surgery last offseason sidelined him until late June. Given the health questions surrounding Schultz along with the fact that he'll be 32 years old when next spring rolls around, it wouldn't be surprised if he was non-tendered next fall.
Schultz (elbow) will undergo elbow surgery Wednesday to remove some bone chips, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports. It's still unclear if there's a larger issue looming beyond the bone chips, but the doctors performing the operation intend to also check for any ligament damage, so this situation is worth monitoring in the coming days. Either way, it appears that Schultz will be out for an extended period of time, although a firmer timetable likely won't be available until after the surgery takes place.
