Wingenter (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports. The move is simply procedural after Wingenter underwent Tommy John surgery July 17. The right-hander is expected to be sidelined until the 2022 season as a result of the injury.
Wingenter (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to July 20) on Wednesday. Wingenter underwent Tommy John surgery July 17, so his move to the injured list was inevitable. The right-hander is expected to be out until the 2022 season.
Wingenter underwent Tommy John surgery Friday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The reliever was originally prescribed nothing but extra rest by team doctors after experiencing elbow irritation last week, but the injury was evidently far worse than originally feared. The timing of his surgery means that he'll have at best an outside shot at returning very late in the 2021 season, with the most likely outcome being that he's not back in game action until 2022.
Wingenter (elbow) has been prescribed extra rest by team doctors and won't be re-evaluated until this weekend, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Wingenter dealt with a shoulder issue in spring training but appeared to be healthy at the start of summer camp. However, he developed elbow irritation last week and was subsequently shut down. Given the timeframe of his re-evaluation and the rapidly approaching start to the regular season, it is highly unlikely that Wingenter will be part of the Opening Day bullpen.
Wingenter is dealing with a shoulder injury and recently had a cortisone injection, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Sanders says that Wingenter isn't particularly close to pitching in games, so it sounds inevitable that he will open the year on the injured list. He is a hard thrower who has the stuff to pitch in the late innings, but he'd still have been fifth or sixth at best in the pecking order in this loaded bullpen.
