Urias (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing off a mound, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. The Dodgers are targeting a July return for Urias, although a more definitive timeframe should come together as his level of activity increases. Urias had been participating in a throwing program after undergoing shoulder surgery last June but had to put the program on hold to undergo tonsil surgery in early April.
Urias (shoulder) had his tonsils removed Wednesday, which will prevent him from resuming his throwing program until next week, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Urias will miss at least half of the 2018 season while recovering from June shoulder surgery. A more concrete timeline for his return should be established once he's able to resume throwing off the mound. The tonsil procedure is obviously an issue unrelated to his arm troubles and shouldn't have any long-term effects on his ability to pitch, but it could delay his eventual return by a little bit.
Urias (shoulder) has progressed to throwing from 120 feet, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Slowly but surely, Urias continues to work his way back from June shoulder surgery. The next step in his rehab will be to extend his long-tossing out to 135 feet. While he's making solid progress, Urias is still expected to miss the first half of 2018. A more concrete timetable for his return should emerge once he's able to resume mound work, which should be sometime after Opening Day.
Urias (shoulder) was put on the 60-day disabled list Friday, Andy McCullough of The Los Angeles Times reports. This was strictly a procedural move for the Dodgers as Urias is expected to remain sidelined for the first-half of the 2018 season due to shoulder surgery he underwent in June. In a corresponding move, the club claimed J.T. Chargois off waivers.
Urias (shoulder), who underwent left anterior capsule surgery in June, said he's healthy and expects to resume throwing soon, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. While this is an encouraging step for Urias, he's still months away from being game ready. Barring any setbacks in his recovery, the southpaw is expected to return sometime during the second half of the 2018 season. Urias won't have much value in single-season formats given the time he's expected to miss, but the 21-year-old still holds long-term value.
