Giants' Mark Melancon: Playing catch pain free
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon (forearm) played catch pain-free Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This is an encouraging sign, as it marks the first time Melancon is throwing pain-free since undergoing flexor pronator surgery in September. The procedure only carries a 6-to-8 week rehab timeline, so he appears to be progressing on schedule and should be ready to go well before spring training rolls around. While he struggled in his first season with the Giants, compiling a 4.50 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in just 30 innings, the veteran right-hander is still expected to enter 2018 as the team's closer. Assuming he's healthy, Melancon will be a popular rebound candidate for next season.

Giants' Mark Melancon: To enter 2018 as Giants' closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy indicated Tuesday that Melancon (forearm) would enter the 2018 season as the Giants' closer, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants signed Melancon to a four-year, $62 million contract this offseason to be their long-term closer, but the veteran reliever was displaced from the ninth-inning role as he battled a myriad of elbow and forearm issues throughout the season. Despite the rocky 2017 campaign, Dyson will be reinserted into the closer role next season. He's a prime candidate to put together a solid bounce-back performance, assuming he's fully healthy.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Undergoes surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon (forearm) successfully underwent pronator surgery Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Melancon's season was cut short when he decided to undergo pronator surgery to repair his right arm that plagued him throughout the season. His rehab timeline is only 6-to-8 weeks, so he should be ready to go when spring training rolls around next season. Sam Dyson will close out the season as the Giants' ninth-inning arm.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Will undergo surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon (forearm) will undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Recent reports indicated that Melancon was aiming to wait to go under the knife until the season was over. However, those plans won't come to fruition, as he'll undergo surgery early next week. If his recovery goes as planned, Melancon could begin throwing as soon as six weeks after the surgery is performed. Barring any setbacks, Melancon is expected to be back in full health well before spring training begins.

Giants' Mark Melancon: Hoping to put off surgery until offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon confirmed Monday that he would eventually require surgery to relieve chronic exertional compartment syndrome in his right forearm, but hopes to put the procedure off until after the season, Andrew Baggarly of The Mercury News reports. "I guess that's the best way to put it: I need surgery, and I'm day-to-day," Melancon said. "I'm trying to last as long as I can."

Melancon ended up making an appearance out of the bullpen Friday against the Cardinals after it was announced earlier that day that the right-hander would require surgery, so for the time being, he'll attempt to pitch through the issue and provide aid to the Giants' setup ranks. However, manager Bruce Bochy said that if he notices Melancon's performance slip in his subsequent outings, the Giants could have him go under the knife before the season comes to an end. The prospect of an offseason procedure probably eliminates any hope Melancon had of recapturing closing duties from Sam Dyson in 2017, though Melancon's four-year, $62 million contract will probably keep him in the conversation for the ninth-inning role in spring training. The forearm procedure usually requires a recovery timeline of 2-to-3 months, so Melancon might not face any restrictions when spring arrives.
