Manager Bob Melvin reported Tuesday that Wahl (shoulder) should be ready for 2018, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Wahl underwent thoracic-outlet surgery Monday. Although he'll be out for the remainder of the 2017 season, he should hopefully be good to go when spring training starts back up in February of 2018.
Wahl (shoulder) underwent successful surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports Monday. Wahl is officially done for the season, and given the severity of this surgery, it's unclear if he will be ready to go come spring training. He pitched in just seven games for Oakland and allowed four runs on eight hits and four walks with eight strikeouts over 7.2 innings.
Wahl will undergo thoracic-outlet surgery Monday, Steve Kroner of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The right-hander was shut down earlier this month after experiencing renewed soreness near his shoulder, and upon further evaluation, was diagnosed with thoracic-outlet syndrome. He will undergo surgery to address the condition, which means any thought of a return this season is out the window, and it's possible he will ultimately return with diminished stuff as has been the case with several other pitchers who have undergone the procedure.
Wahl (shoulder), whose rehab was recently shut down due to a setback, is expected to be examined by vascular surgeon Dr. Gregory Pearl in Dallas later this week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Pearl specializes in thoracic-outlet syndrome, which is best described as a compression of the blood supply or nerves from the neck to the armpit. A multitude of notable big-league arms, including Matt Harvey, Josh Beckett and Chris Carpenter, have been affected by the condition, and not all pitchers who've required surgery have been able to return to action. Meanwhile, some who have made it back have had to deal with a dip in velocity. Wahl's fastball does reach triple digits, making him one of the organization's top relief prospects.
Wahl (shoulder) has been shut down from throwing after experiencing a setback recently, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. This is devastating news for the young right-hander, as he was expected to be nearing a return from the DL in the coming days. Wahl has already been out since May with the shoulder strain and it appears the possibility of returning to the mound this season could be in jeopardy following the latest issue. The 25-year-old reliever appeared in seven games for the A's before being sidelined and a new timetable for his return could be revealed after medical consultation.
