Gutierrez (elbow) completed a live bullpen session Tuesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Before he was placed on the 15-day injured list just over a month ago with a first-degree right elbow strain, Gutierrez had been working out of the bullpen. The Reds aren't yet decided on what kind of role Gutierrez will handle once he's back to full strength, as the team will have him build up to three innings in his throwing progression before determining whether he'll return from the IL as a reliever or starter. Since he still has yet to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment, Gutierrez isn't on track to return until after the All-Star break.
Gutierrez (elbow) will throw live batting practice Friday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Gutierrez progressed to mound work last week, and he's now been cleared to face live hitters. After being shut down with a first-degree UCL strain in his right elbow earlier in June, the 26-year-old has recently made encouraging progress in his recovery.
Gutierrez (elbow) will throw a bullpen session this week, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Gutierrez was shut down for two weeks in early June after being diagnosed with a first-degree UCL strain in his right elbow. That time period has now expired, and it looks like he's ready for the next step, more or less on schedule.
Gutierrez will be shut down for two weeks with a first-degree UCL strain but has avoided a more serious injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Gutierrez hit the injured list Sunday with what was originally called right forearm soreness. Any time a UCL is involved, things seldom look particularly good, but it at least seems as though Tommy John surgery is off the table at this time. Given that he won't be throwing for two weeks, however, it will be quite a while before he's back in action at the big-league level.
Gutierrez was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right forearm soreness. The news comes after Gutierrez had moved back into a bullpen role earlier this week, so there isn't much fantasy fallout. Jared Solomon was recalled from Triple-A Louisville in a corresponding move.
