Warren (oblique) was activated from the 60-day injured list Saturday. Warren has been out since mid-July and was originally expected to miss 3-to-6 weeks. However, he was shifted to the 60-day injured list in August after failing to progress as anticipated. Warren has had a very effective season out of the bullpen to this point, maintaining a 1.88 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP to go along with a 21:6 K:BB across 14.1 innings.
Warren (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Warren has been on the shelf since July 15 due to a left oblique strain but resumed throwing in early August. He isn't eligible to rejoin the major-league club until mid-September, but he'll work on building up during his rehab assignment and should be a bullpen option for the Reds across the final few weeks of the season.
The Reds transferred Warren (oblique) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday. Cincinnati's decision to shift Warren to the 60-day IL comes as little surprise after manager David Bell told Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer that Warren was at least a month away from rejoining the bullpen after only recently beginning to throw lightly off flat ground. The transaction ensures that Warren won't be an option for Cincinnati until around mid-September.
Warren's oblique strain is expected to keep him out for three-to-six weeks, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Warren suffered the injury during the final game before the All-Star break. While the given timeline is still a very broad range, it's now clear that he won't return until sometime in August.
Warren landed on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain Thursday. The injury that forced Warren to exit his final relief outing prior to the break was initially unclear, but it's now been revealed that it was an oblique issue serious enough to send him to the sidelines. The transaction was backdated three days, so he'll be eligible to return in a week, but it's not yet clear if he'll have a chance to do so.
