  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Ruled out for season

    Baez (shoulder) won't pitch again this season, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Baez began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land in late September, and he's allowed four runs on seven hits and no walks in 2.2 innings across three appearances with the minor-league club. However, manager Dusty Baker said Saturday that the right-hander won't rejoin the major-league roster in 2021. As long as he remains on track during the offseason, Baez will likely be ready for the start of spring training in 2022.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Begins rehab assignment

    Baez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sugar Land on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez began a throwing program in early September, and he'll return to game action just under a month after he was placed on the injured list with shoulder soreness. The right-hander is unlikely to require many rehab appearances, so he should be in the mix to rejoin the Astros' bullpen before the end of the regular season.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Completes mound session

    Baez (shoulder) tossed a bullpen session Sunday, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez continues to advance through a throwing program as he works through a setback with the right shoulder injury that has kept him on the shelf for most of the season. Assuming he continues to progress over the next week, Baez should have an outside shot to make it back for the final week of the regular season. If he does in fact get activated from the 10-day injured list before the regular season concludes, Baez's initial appearances could amount to a de facto audition for the Astros' postseason roster.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Starts throwing program

    Astros manager Dusty Baker said Monday that Baez (shoulder) has resumed throwing off flat ground, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

    Baez has been on the 10-day injured list since Aug. 24 after aggravating the shoulder injury that kept him sidelined to begin the 2021 campaign. He'll likely need to complete some sort of rehab assignment or series of simulated games before returning from the IL, so Baez is realistically at least a week away from being activated.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Placed on IL with shoulder soreness

    Baez was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with shoulder soreness, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

    Baez made his season debut Aug.10 after being sidelined for the entire season with a shoulder injury. He's allowed just one run across 4.1 innings since returning, but his move back to the IL doesn't come as a huge surprise given his velocity was down in recent outings. The transaction is retroactive to Sunday, so Baez will be eligible to come off the injured list Sept. 1, though it's possible he'll need more time to recover. Bryan Abreu was recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land to take his roster spot.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Diminished velo

    Baez experienced diminished fastball velocity during his outing Tuesday against the Rockies, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Baez was activated off the injured list Tuesday and made his first appearance of the season, throwing a scoreless inning of relief. Looking deeper, however, the zip on his fastball was down a few ticks. His first fastball was 89 mph, and it lived between 89 and 92 mph throughout the inning. That was down from the 94 mph he averaged in 2020, which was down from the 95-96 mph average from 2018-2019. The Astros inked him during the offseason to pitch high-leverage innings, but that may not be the case with such a drastic drop in velocity. The team can get by with Kendall Graveman filling the eighth-inning role.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Returns from IL

    Baez (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The righty made eight rehab appearances, totaling eight strikeouts and allowing a pair of runs in nine innings. Baez has not pitched in the big leagues this season due to a spring training shoulder injury, although he's now healthy and ready to make his 2021 debut in Houston's bullpen. He appeared in 18 games for the Dodgers in 2020, posting a 3.18 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 17 innings. Rafael Montero (shoulder) was placed on the IL in a corresponding move Tuesday.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Finishes off shutout

    Baez allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning in Tuesday's 5-0 win over Colorado.

    Baez was reinstated from the 60-day injured list earlier in the day and made his season debut. He was sidelined by a shoulder injury sustained while building up following a bout with COVID-19 in the spring. Baez had been expected to be a key contributor when he signed a two-year, $12.5 million deal during the offseason, and his absence was felt as Houston's bullpen struggled for much of the season. The Astros have since added bullpen reinforcements, and the unit has pitched much better since the trade deadline. Baez could work into a seventh-inning role along with Ryne Stanek.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Pitches on consecutive days

    Baez (shoulder) made rehab appearances Thursday and Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Baez allowed a run on a hit and a walk while striking out one in two innings across his two appearances, and he'll be re-evaluated Saturday. The Astros have treated back-to-back usage as the final step in rehab assignments for relievers this year, so the right-hander is close to returning from the 60-day IL.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Needs back-to-back use

    Baez (shoulder) had been scheduled to throw back-to-back days this week for Triple-A Sugar Land, but Tuesday's game was rained out.

    The Astros want to see Baez throw on back-to-back days before re-evaluating him. Thus far, Baez's rehab has gone smoothly with the right-hander posting a 1.29 ERA with seven strikeouts and two walks over seven innings.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Moving rehab to Triple-A

    Baez (shoulder) will report to Triple-A Sugar Land to begin a rehab assignment Thursday or Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran right-hander completed a bullpen session Tuesday after returning from his two-game rehab stint with High-A Fayetteville, and he'll continue the rehab assignment in the upper minors. Baez has yet to pitch for Houston this season while returning from a shoulder injury, and he told Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle that he'll likely need two more weeks in the minors before being activated.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Scheduled for bullpen in Houston

    Baez (shoulder) will head to Houston on Tuesday to throw a bullpen session in front of major-league staff, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez is currently on a rehab assignment at High-A Fayetteville, for whom he made a second appearance Sunday, walking one and striking out one over a scoreless inning. If all goes well Tuesday, the Astros are expected to move his rehab to Triple-A Sugar Land. He has not pitched for Houston this season after contracting COVID-19 during spring training and injuring his shoulder while building back up.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Has first rehab outing

    Baez (shoulder) allowed one hit over a scoreless inning for Low-A Fayetteville on Thursday.

    Baez was expected to have a significant bullpen role when he signed as a free agent during the offseason, but a bout with COVID-19 and then shoulder soreness have kept him on the shelf until now. The Astros need relief stability beyond closer Ryan Pressly, and Baez could provide it soon.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Begins rehab assignment

    Baez (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A Fayetteville on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez hasn't yet made his 2021 debut since he's been sidelined due to a positive COVID-19 test and right shoulder soreness, but he threw a pair of live batting practice sessions recently. As a reliever, he likely won't require a lengthy rehab stint, but the Astros haven't yet indicated when he could be reinstated from the 60-day injured list.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Throws live BP

    Baez (shoulder) threw 25 pitches of live batting practice Friday, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    This was the second live BP session of the week for Baez. As a reliever, he would not need much to be ready to rejoin the team, but it's unclear how the Astros plans to proceed with the right-hander.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Tosses live BP

    Baez (shoulder) recently threw a live batting practice session and is slated to throw another one Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez threw 31 pitches in a bullpen at the end of June, and he's now been able to face live hitters. While the right-hander still doesn't have a clear return timetable, he could begin a rehab assignment in the near future if Friday's throwing session goes well. Baez has been sidelined since early April due to a shoulder injury, but he's progressed well since he resumed mound work in late June.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Completes bullpen session

    Baez (shoulder) threw a 31-pitch bullpen session Monday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 KRIV reports.

    The right-hander has yet to see game action this season while battling shoulder soreness, but he appears to be nearing the final stages of his rehab work. The team has yet to decide the next step in his recovery, but Baez should require a rehab assignment before being activated from the injured list.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Throws off mound Tuesday

    Manager Dusty Baker said that Baez (shoulder) threw 20 pitches off a mound at the club's spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baez has missed the entire season to this point with shoulder soreness. He resumed throwing in early May and Tuesday marked the first news of him throwing off a mound. The next big step for the reliever will be to go on a minor-league rehab assignment, though it's not clear at this point when he'll be ready to so. Baez seems likely to remain on the 60-day IL through the All-Star break, but he could return to the Houston bullpen early in the second half.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Yet to resume mound work

    Baez (shoulder) has not resumed throwing off a mound, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 30-year-old had been throwing off flat ground from 90 feet last week, but he's been unable to progress to throwing off a mound. GM James Click declined to say whether Baez will return from the injured list before the All-Star break, so the right-hander doesn't appear particularly close to rejoining the Astros.

  • Astros' Pedro Baez: Expands throwing distance

    General manager James Click said Tuesday that Baez (shoulder) has increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 90 feet, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Baez is expected to continue working out at the Astros' spring training facility in West Palm Beach, Fla. for at least the next couple of weeks before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment. He could be a candidate to join the Houston bullpen by mid-June if he avoids any setbacks.
