    • Pirates' Casey Sadler: Back on mound
      By RotoWire Staff

      Making his first appearance since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2015, Sadler hurled a scoreless relief inning Sunday against the Twins. "Casey came in. He threw strikes. He kept the ball down," manager Clint Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It was fun to watch. Good for him." The 26-year-old pitched in parts of two seasons with Pittsburgh, compiling a 6.46 ERA in only 15.1 innings. Sadler is saddled by a career minor-league strikeout rate of 5.9/9. He could make an occasional spot start in the majors but profiles better as a Triple-A starter.

    • Pirates' Casey Sadler: Spring games on horizon
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sadler (forearm) is expected to appear in a spring game within the next week, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The 26-year-old began throwing simulated games a week ago, so it seems that those sessions have been going as planned. Sadler underwent Tommy John surgery at the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, but his elbow seems to be holding up as he nears the end of his rehab process.

    • Pirates' Casey Sadler: Progresses to sim games
      By RotoWire Staff

      Sadler (forearm) began throwing simulated games earlier in March, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The 26-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery following the 2015 season, but it seems like he's on track to return to regular game action relatively soon. The Pirates have extra time given the extended length of spring training this year, so they'll likely continue to take things slowly with Sadler, but the end of his rehab seems to be on the horizon. A timetable for his return should become clearer as he throws more sim games.

    • Sadler re-signed with the Pirates on a minor league contract Tuesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Sadler missed all of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in November of 2015, but the Pirates will bring him back to their minor league ranks as he attempts to mount a comeback. He appeared in the major leagues in both 2014 and 2015, but he'll likely need to thoroughly impress with his performance and his health in the minor leagues if he wants another shot at the majors again.

    • Sadler underwent Tommy John surgery following the season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Sadler dealt with a forearm injury for several months and did not notice improvement, so the decision was made to send him under the knife. A timetable for his recovery has not been provided, but given the timing of his surgery, he may miss the entire 2016 season.
