Reds' Justin Dunn: Covers two frames in rehab start
Dunn (shoulder) struck out one over two innings Sunday in his first rehab start for High-A Dayton. He gave up an earned run on three hits and one walk.
The two-inning appearance was Dunn's first at any level in 2022 after he was placed on the 60-day injured list coming out of spring training with a right shoulder strain. Though the Reds don't have a spot available for him in the big-league rotation at present, Dunn is expected to be built up for a starting role during his 30-day rehab window. He'll likely make at least two or three more starts in the minors before being activated.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Dunn: Rehab starting Sunday
Dunn (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Dayton on Sunday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Dunn was acquired in a trade with the Mariners in March but has spent the entirety of his time with his new organization recovering from the shoulder strain he suffered last June. He's nearly ready for game action, though given the length of his absence, he'll likely need several rehab outings before being activated off the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Dunn: Throwing off mound again
Dunn (shoulder) threw a full bullpen session Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Sunday marked the third time Dunn has thrown off a mound since suffering a setback with his right shoulder in March, but it was the first time in which he incorporated breaking pitches into the mix. Dunn is scheduled to throw two simulated innings in a bullpen session Friday before reporting to the Reds' spring training complex in Arizona to continue building up for a rehab assignment. Though Dunn indicated that he feels healthy now, the Reds are likely to take things slowly with him since he missed the entire second half of the 2021 season with the Mariners after he strained the same shoulder. Dunn doesn't look to be on track to return from the 60-day injured list until July.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Dunn: Begins season on 60-day IL
Dunn (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.
Dunn was traded from the Mariners to the Reds in March and was expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation, but he'll be forced to miss at least the first two months of the season due to the right shoulder strain that kept him sidelined for most of the 2021 campaign. Luis Castillo (shoulder) and Mike Minor (shoulder) are both on the 10-day injured list to begin the year, so Vladimir Gutierrez, Reiver Sanmartin, Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo are all beginning the season in the rotation for the Reds....

Reds' Justin Dunn: Set to miss months
Manager David Bell said Tuesday that Dunn (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined a couple months, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Dunn was expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation after being acquired from the Mariners last week, but he'll instead spent the first couple months of the campaign on the injured list. The right-hander suffered a shoulder strain last June and missed the rest of the season with Seattle, and the injury will also leave a significant mark on his 2022 campaign in Cincinnati....

Reds' Justin Dunn: Eventually competing for rotation
Dunn (shoulder) will be delayed at the start of camp but ultimately will compete for an open rotation spot with the Reds, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Clearly, Dunn is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day, but that's just a starting point for the start of the season. It's possible that the Reds will want to delay the debuts of Hunter Greene, Nick Lodolo and now Brandon Williamson, which would buy Dunn a little bit of time in the rotation once he's ready. Moreover, more moves are likely to be coming for the Reds, potentially including Luis Castillo.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Being eased in during camp
The Mariners plan to limit Dunn's (shoulder) activity during the early stages of spring training, but he hasn't been ruled out from making the Opening Day roster, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
After he was diagnosed with a strained right shoulder in mid-June, Dunn ultimately wasn't able to make it back from the injured list, though he advanced to facing hitters in simulated games in September before experiencing a setback. Seattle isn't shutting Dunn down to begin spring -- he was seen playing catch Sunday, according to Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times -- but he may still be several days away from facing hitters. Even if the shoulder presents no further problems for him this spring, Dunn's slow buildup program may work against him in his bid for a rotation spot.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Justin Dunn: Traded to Reds
Dunn (shoulder) was sent from the Mariners to the Reds on Monday along with Brandon Williamson and Jake Fraley, with Jesse Winker and Eugenio Suarez heading the other way, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Dunn was being eased into camp by the Mariners after missing most of last season with a strained right shoulder. The Reds' plan for him is not yet known. While the move represents a large downgrade in home park for Dunn, it could also give him a much easier path to a rotation spot. The value Dunn would have even with a clear starting role may not be particularly high, however, as his career 3.94 ERA comes with a poor set of peripherals. His 20.6 percent strikeout rate, 15.5 percent walk rate and 33.7 percent groundball rate have given him a 5.61 FIP and an even worse 6.05 xFIP.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Shut down for season
Dunn (shoulder) was sent back to Seattle for an MRI on Friday and will not pitch again this season, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Dunn was working his way back from a shoulder strain that has kept him sidelined since mid-June. He threw just four pitches in a rehab game for Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday before exiting with an apparent setback, the severity of which should become clear following his MRI.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Feels good after latest sim game
Dunn (shoulder) reported feeling good Tuesday after throwing a simulated game Monday and will soon embark on a rehab assignment, the team's official site reports.
Word earlier in the week was Dunn would head to either High-A Everett or Triple-A Tacoma for at least one rehab start if he felt good following his second sim game Monday, and that apparently will come to fruition. However, the exact timeline of that outing has yet to be determined, although further clarity should be gleaned on that front in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Rehab assignment looming
Dunn (shoulder) threw another simulated game Monday and will likely head out on a short rehab assignment if he experiences no residual effects Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
The right-hander reportedly looked good during his time on the hill Monday, flashing a wicked curveball for a strike early in the outing and impressing throughout. Manager Scott Servais noted that Dunn had more conviction on his pitches than earlier in his rehab process and added he'll likely make at least one rehab appearance with High-A Everett or Triple-A Tacoma before possibly returning to the big-league club as a reliever....

Mariners' Justin Dunn: Throws simulated game
Dunn (shoulder) threw a simulated game Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Dunn is expected to begin a rehab assignment soon, and Friday's throwing session marked the first time he faced live hitters since he was placed on the injured list in mid-June. The right-hander shouldn't need much time to build up his pitch count since the Mariners plan to use him as a reliever once he's cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Nearing rehab assignment
Dunn (shoulder inflammation) is nearing a rehab stint and will pitch out of the bullpen if he is able to return to the big-league club this season, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Dunn probably doesn't have time to get fully stretched out as a starter, so the Mariners will prioritize getting him back in a relief role. He has been sidelined since June 17 and has a 3.75 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 50.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Throws bullpen session
Dunn (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
It was another step in the right direction for the right-hander, who's been on the injured list since June 18. However, Dunn's status for the remainder of 2021 is still firmly up in the air, and how his shoulder responds to the workload is likely to help chart his path forward for the rest of the regular season....

Mariners' Justin Dunn: Could be nearing bullpen
The Mariners are hopeful that Dunn (shoulder) will be able to throw a bullpen session in the coming days, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Dunn has been on the injured list since June 18 due to a right shoulder strain but suffered a setback in his recovery in early August. If the right-hander is unable to progress to throwing a bullpen in the near future, the Mariners are expected shut him down for the remainder of the season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Shifts to 60-day IL
Dunn (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.
The right-hander has been on the injured list since June 18, so his move to the 60-day IL doesn't impact his recovery timetable and clears room on the 40-man roster for Kevin Padlo, who was claimed off waivers from the Rays on Thursday. Dunn had a setback in his recovery in early August but resumed mound work last week. However, it's not yet clear when he'll return to game action.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Resumes mound work
Dunn (shoulder) resumed throwing off a mound Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Dunn was poised to begin throwing off a mound last week before hitting a snag in his recovery, but he was able get back on the mound Tuesday. The right-hander will need to continue building up his workload before being cleared to begin a rehab assignment, so he may not return from the injured list until September.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Justin Dunn: Hits setback in recovery
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday that Dunn (shoulder) has fallen behind Justus Sheffield (forearm) in their respective rehab programs, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The two starting pitchers were placed on the 10-day injured list within a couple weeks of one another; Dunn landed on the shelf on June 18 with a right shoulder strain, while Sheffield was shut down July 7 with a left forearm strain. Coming out of the All-Star break, Dunn appeared to be closer of the two to returning, but his timeline was pushed back after he failed to complete a bullpen session during the Mariners' series with the Rays earlier this week. Even if Dunn is able to get back on the mound within the next few days, he'll still need to progress to facing hitters, and then complete a one- or two-start rehab assignment in the minors before the Mariners entertain bringing him back from the IL. Dunn doesn't look like he'll be ready to go until late August, in a best-case scenario.... See More ... See Less
