Tate is healthy and participating in a normal throwing program this offseason, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports.
Tate was limited to just 13 rehab appearances this season because of a right forearm issue, but the Orioles are confident the reliever has finally put the injury behind him.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Moves to 60-day IL
The Orioles transferred Tate (forearm) to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Has stress reaction in elbow
Tate (forearm) has been diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right elbow and will remain on the injured list, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Decision coming soon
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that a decision on Tate (forearm) is coming "sometime soon," Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Tate's rehab window has come to a close, so he either has to be activated from the injured list or optioned to Triple-A Norfolk. The 29-year-old is recovered from his offseason forearm strain but has surrendered 15 runs -- 13 earned -- in 8.1 innings of relief between three different levels of the O's minor-league system. That works out to a 14.04 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dillon Tate: Needs another rehab outing
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Wednesday that Tate (forearm) will make at least one more rehab appearance prior to being activated from the 15-day injured list, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Tate, who has been on the IL all season while recovering from a right forearm strain, began his rehab assignment in late April and has already made eight appearances. However, with Tate having turned in a 17.05 ERA and 3.16 WHIP across 6.1 innings in those outings, the Orioles will want to see the right-hander turn in some better results on the farm before inserting him into the big-league bullpen. Tate could be ticketed for a middle-innings role out of the bullpen once activated.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dillon Tate: Tosses scoreless frame on rehab
Tate (forearm) allowed a hit and a walk in one scoreless inning in a rehab appearance Wednesday with Triple-A Norfolk.
Tate will make at least one more rehab appearance for Norfolk after his scoreless outing Wednesday. The right-hander will likely need to be able to work in back-to-back contests before he's activated from the 15-day injured list, but Tate doesn't look to be far away from making his season debut with Baltimore after missing the first six weeks with a forearm strain....

In addition to making five or six appearances before being activated, Tate added that he'll need to pitch on consecutive days for the Orioles to feel comfortable about his availability out of the big-league bullpen.

Tate (elbow) said he will throw 20 pitches off a full mound Tuesday, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
