  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Kahnle (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Kahnle has been on the injured list since May 17 due to right forearm inflammation, and he's in the midst of a shutdown. The Dodgers haven't yet revealed a timetable for the right-hander's return, but his move to the 60-day IL signals that he'll likely be sidelined until at least after the All-Star break. In spite of Kahnle's lengthy absence, manager Dave Roberts is optimistic that the 32-year-old will return to game action at some point in 2022.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Facing shutdown

    Kahnle underwent an MRI that revealed a strain in his forearm related to his Tommy John surgery that he underwent in 2020, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Kahnle returned to major-league game action in early May and posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in four innings over four relief appearances. The right-hander will be shut down for approximately two weeks before being reevaluated, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. However, manager Dave Roberts is optimistic that Kahnle will be back in action at some point this season.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Hits shelf with forearm injury

    The Dodgers placed Kahnle on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right forearm inflammation, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The fact that Kahnle is being shut down with an arm-related injury is somewhat disconcerting after the right-hander opened the season on the IL while he advanced through the final stages of his recovery from his August 2020 Tommy John surgery. After being activated from the IL on May 1, Kahnle made four appearances out of the Dodgers' bullpen, giving up three earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out five in four innings. The Dodgers will hope that at least two weeks of rest will resolve the inflammation in Kahnle's forearm, though it wouldn't be surprising if he were sent in for a precautionary MRI just to ensure he's not dealing with anything more severe.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Impresses in return from Tommy John

    Kahnle pitched in his first game Sunday since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2020, and he threw a perfect frame during which he struck out two batters.

    It's been a long road back to health for Kahnle, who suffered a UCL injury in his right arm during his first and only appearance in 2020 and subsequently opted for Tommy John surgery. The Dodgers signed him in December of that year with the knowledge that they likely wouldn't have his services until 2022, and their patience paid off as the right-hander was able to make his debut with the team Sunday. Kahnle looked great in the appearance, fanning two of the three batters he faced and retiring the side on only nine pitches. Per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times, the veteran reliever touched 98 mph with his fastball and got a whiff on each of the three changeups he hurled. Harris also reports that manager Dave Roberts stated Kahnle will be a "leverage guy" going forward, and he could immediately see some work in situations that would have previously been handled by Blake Treinen, who is on the injured list with a shoulder injury. Kahnle has plenty of career success to back up Roberts' trust in him, as he's registered a 3.81 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 11.2 K/9 while notching nine wins, 68 holds and four saves over 286 career relief apperances.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Activated from injured list

    Kahnle (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Kahnle signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers in December 2020 shortly after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and he'll now join the active roster for the first time. The 32-year-old barely pitched in 2020 prior to the procedure, and he had a 3.67 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 88:20 K:BB over 61.1 innings during 2019 with the Yankees.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Could return next week

    Kahnle (elbow) is expected to make relief appearances on consecutive days later this week during his ongoing rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Kahnle is nearing the finish line in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent in August 2020. The right-hander has already made six rehab appearances between Oklahoma City and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, covering 5.2 innings in total and giving up one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out six. Manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that appearing on consecutive days is the final box Kahnle will need to check off in his rehab program before he returns from the 10-day injured list, potentially as soon as next week's series with the Giants.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Shifts rehab to Triple-A

    Kahnle (elbow) pitched two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    This was Kahnle's first rehab appearance at the Triple-A level following three outings with Low-A Rancho Cucamonga. The right-hander has struck out four batters over 3.2 innings combined while issuing just one walk. He's expected to be ready to return to the big club in early May.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Expected back in May

    Kahnle (elbow) is expected to be activated from the injured list in May, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Kahnle wasn't ready for Opening Day as he was still recovering from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent in August 2020. He's made two rehab appearances for Low-A Rancho Cucamonga to begin the season, tossing a pair of scoreless innings.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Begins rehab assignment

    Kahnle (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Low-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery in August of 2020 and was rehabbing throughout spring training. While he's on the injured list to begin the 2022 season, he'll start and throw one inning for Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday. Manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Kahnle is expected to be ready to rejoin the Dodgers in 3-5 weeks.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Goes on IL

    The Dodgers placed Kahnle (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Kahnle was moved to the IL along with fellow relievers Victor Gonzalez (elbow) and Caleb Ferguson (elbow) as the Dodgers narrowed their Opening Day roster down to the mandatory 28 players ahead of Friday's game in Colorado. Like Ferguson, Kahnle is recovering from late-2020 Tommy John surgery, with both pitchers seemingly in the final phase of their rehab programs after making appearances in Cactus League play. Ferguson made three relief appearances, while Kahnle made his spring debut Tuesday, when he struck out two over a scoreless frame. Kahnle should soon report to a minor-league affiliate for a rehab assignment, and if all goes well, he could join the big-league bullpen by the end of April.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Spring debut on tap Saturday

    Kahnle (elbow) threw his second live batting practice Tuesday and is scheduled to pitch in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Giants, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    The 32-year-old won't be ready for Opening Day as he nears his return from Tommy John surgery in August of 2020, but he could be off the injured list by the end of April, per Juan Toribio of MLB.com. Kahnle was a key bullpen piece for the Yankees back in 2019 and had 27 holds with a 3.67 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 88:20 K:BB over 61.1 innings.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Advances to live batting practice

    Kahnle (elbow) threw live batting practice Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Saturday's session was Kahnle's first live batting practice since he underwent Tommy John surgery back in August of 2020. He's being brought along carefully this spring and isn't considered likely to make the Opening Day roster, but he doesn't appear to be too far behind. The 32-year-old righty should have the chance to carve out at least a middle-relief role once fully healthy, as he owns a 3.82 ERA and a 29.3 percent strikeout rate in 277.2 career major-league innings.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Tosses bullpen session

    Kahnle (elbow) threw a bullpen session over the weekend, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    This is the first report from the team of Kahnle throwing off a mound this spring. While this is undoubtedly a step in the right direction for the right-hander and shows that he is progressing through his throwing program, Plunkett notes that Kahnle remains unlikely to be ready for the season opener.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Doubtful for Opening Day

    Kahnle (elbow) probably won't be ready to pitch in a game by Opening Day, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Kahnle and Caleb Ferguson -- both of whom are coming off 2020 Tommy John surgery -- are unlikely to be ready for the start of the big-league season. Kahnle has yet to make his Dodgers debut and has pitched only one inning (for the Yankees) since the 2019 campaign. When he is ready to return to the big-league mound, Kahnle will likely be used in a low-leverage role out the gate.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Won't return in 2021

    Kahnle (elbow) will not pitch this season, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery in August of 2020, so there was some hope that he may return late this season. However, he has only progressed to playing catch and will not have time to ramp up to game action. Kahnle should be ready to pitch out of the Dodgers' bullpen at the beginning of next season.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Shifts to injured list

    Kahnle (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery last August and is likely to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2021 season. The move opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Jimmy Nelson.

  • Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Agrees to two-year deal

    Kahnle (elbow) signed a two-year, $4.75 million contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Kahnle will be unavailable for most or all of the 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, but he reached a two-year deal with Los Angeles after parting ways with the Yankees at the end of October. The right-hander made 73 relief appearances over the last two seasons, posting a 3.61 ERA and 91:21 K:BB over 62.1 innings. Once Kahnle returns to full health, he should operate as a late reliever for the Dodgers.
