Yankees' Matt Bowman: Won't pitch in 2022
Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre transferred Bowman (elbow) from the 60-day injured list to the full-season IL on Tuesday, Matt Kardos of PinstripedProspects.com reports.
Bowman underwent Tommy John surgery in September 2020, but after sitting out the entire 2021 campaign, he was expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training. The veteran right-hander never progressed as well as the Yankees had hoped, however, and he'll end up missing his second season in a row as a result. Now 31 years old and having not pitched in the majors -- or at any level -- since 2019, Bowman's playing career could be in question.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Matt Bowman: Shifts to injured list
Bowman (elbow) was placed on the injured list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.
Bowman signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees in December 2020 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and he has yet to receive full clearance. He last pitched in the majors during the 2019 campaign and had a 3.66 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB over 32 innings. It's unclear when the 30-year-old is expected to return to full health, but he could be a factor in New York's bullpen later in the season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Matt Bowman: Inks minors deal

Reds' Matt Bowman: Outrighted to minors

Reds' Matt Bowman: Tommy John surgery on tap
Reds manager David Bell said Monday that Bowman (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery later this week, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
After failing to win a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster coming out of summer camp, the Reds later shifted him to the injured list after he was diagnosed with a sprained right elbow. Bowman had been cleared to resume a throwing program in August, but since the right-hander wasn't progressing as well as the Reds hoped, surgery was ordered up. The procedure will most likely keep Bowman sidelined through the end of the 2021 campaign, though he'll have a slight chance at pitching in some minor-league rehab games at the tail end of next season. According to John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds will remove Bowman from their 60-man roster pool, and there's a good chance the reliever will be non-tendered this winter.... See More ...
