Hill (forearm) began a throwing program Thursday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The veteran left-hander, who has been on the shelf since June 20 with a flexor tendon strain, made 25 throws from 45 feet and reported no issues afterwards. Hill is expected to extend his throwing out to 60 feet over the next two weeks before ramping things up from there. If all goes well, Hill is hoping to return sometime in September.
Hill (forearm) is scheduled to play catch Thursday for the first time since going on the injured list June 20, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Hill initially said it would be 3-to-4 weeks before he returned to throwing, so his recovery appears to be right on schedule. The veteran left-hander is expected to throw from 60 feet for the next two weeks before ramping up his progression. He is hoping to rejoin the Dodgers sometime in September.
Hill (forearm) is set to resume throwing Thursday in Philadelphia and is targeting a September return, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. As expected, Hill will start throwing within the next week, and he'll toss from 60 feet for the next two weeks before progressing any further. He's been on the 10-day injured list since June 20 due to a left forearm strain, though if all goes according to plan, it appears the southpaw will take the mound again this season for the Dodgers.
Hill (forearm) will resume throwing next week, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Hill expected to have to wait 3-to-4 weeks to resume throwing after he landed on the injured list June 20, and he appears to be right in line with that estimate. His ability to return to the mound at any point this season has been in question since he suffered a flexor tendon strain, but he was reportedly optimistic Friday.
Hill (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. The move has little effect on Hill's recovery timeline, as he's still weeks away from resuming throwing after suffering a flexor tendon strain. It's not clear that he'll even be able to pitch again this season. The transaction clears a spot on the Dodgers' 40-man roster for Casey Sadler, acquired in a trade from the Rays in a corresponding move.
