  • Astros general manager James Click said Sunday that McCullers (forearm) is beginning to increase the intensity, distance and frequency of his throwing routine, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports. Click noted that McCullers has been playing catch off flat ground from 60 feet for a while, so the right-hander looks like he'll continue to gradually stretch out that distance in the days to come before advancing to bullpen sessions in the "next couple weeks." From there, McCullers will still have to graduate to throwing live batting practice before heading out on a multi-start rehab assignment, so he's realistically more than a month away from returning from the 60-day injured list.

  • McCullers (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. McCullers is still working his way back from the forearm injury he suffered during the postseason. He started throwing last week but remains without a clear timeline, though his move to the 60-day injured list at least clarifies that he won't return before early June. The transaction clears a spot for Yordan Alvarez to return from the COVID-19 injured list.

  • McCullers (forearm) threw 25 times on flat ground from 60 feet Tuesday and is scheduled to throw again Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. The 28-year-old has been shut down since suffering setbacks while rehabbing during the offseason, and his return to throwing is a significant development in his rehab program. McCullers will need to strengthen his arm before returning to mound work and eventually facing live hitter. His return from the injured list likely remains more than a month away.

  • McCullers (forearm) could be ready to throw as soon as next week, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. McCullers remains shut down with a forearm issue that dates back to last year's postseason. The fact that he's on the 10-day injured list rather than the 60-day injured list may indicate that the Astros expect him back before the end of May, though an exact timetable has not yet been provided by the team.

  • MuCullers (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. McCullers suffered setbacks in his rehab from a forearm injury during the offseason, and he'll be unavailable to begin the regular season. The right-hander has yet to resume throwing, but the fact that the Astros didn't place him on the 60-day IL implies the organization has some hope McCullers will be ready to make his season debut in less than two months. Jake Odorizzi will begin the season in the rotation as a result of McCullers' placement on the shelf.
