Luzardo (forearm) has increased his throwing distance to 105 feet, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Luzardo began a throwing program last weekend and has progressed to playing long toss. The southpaw still has several steps to clear before he's in the mix to return to game action, but he seems to be trending toward resuming mound work in the near future.
Luzardo (forearm) will start a throwing program this weekend, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. He is on the 60-day injured list with a left forearm strain and is not expected to return anytime soon. Given the severity of the injury, there could be some starts and stops in Luzardo's throwing program as he gets brought along very conservatively.
The Marlins transferred Luzardo (forearm) on Tuesday from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Luzardo has resided on the IL since May 15 due to a left forearm strain and only recently resumed throwing a few days ago, so it's not a major surprise that the Marlins elected to move him to the 60-day IL. Even if he hits no further snags in his recovery from the injury, he'll still likely need at least three weeks to get stretched back out for starting duty with the big club, so Luzardo could very well remain sidelined through the All-Star break. The transaction temporarily removes Luzardo from the 40-man roster and opens up a spot for reliever Jimmy Yacabonis, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly disclosed Monday that Luzardo (forearm) has been cleared to play catch, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The long-toss sessions off flat ground mark Luzardo's first throwing activity since he was placed on the 15-day injured list May 15 with a left forearm strain. While it's a positive step forward for Luzardo, he'll likely need at least two or three weeks to get himself ready for a return to the big-league rotation, so fantasy managers that have been stashing him probably shouldn't expect him back until July.
Luzardo (forearm) has yet to begin a throwing program since landing on the 15-day injured list May 12, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Now more than three weeks removed from being shut down with a left forearm strain, Luzardo has yet to take any meaningful steps forward in his recovery. Even if he's cleared to start playing catch within the next few days, Luzardo will still require multiple weeks to build back up for a starting role. At this stage, Luzardo might be trending toward a return from the IL in July at the earliest.
