Hunter (forearm) is expected to open the season on the injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The Phillies brought Hunter back on a major-league deal despite the fact that the veteran is still recovering from surgery on his right flexor tendon. This time last season, he was also dealing with a flexor issue, which wound up keeping him out until late June. It doesn't appear that things will go the same way this season, however, as he's already throwing regular bullpen sessions.
Hunter (forearm) is expected to throw off a mound in two weeks, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Hunter (forearm) passed his physical and is taking part in drills Wednesday at Phillies camp after signing a major-league deal with the club, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Reports that Hunter agreed to a deal with the Phillies surfaced a few days ago, but it wasn't apparent whether he would attend camp as a member of the 40-man roster or as a non-roster invitee. The Phillies cleared up any ambiguity about Hunter's situation by shifting David Robertson (elbow) to the 60-day injured list, thereby opening up a 40-man spot for the 33-year-old righty. Hunter's 2019 campaign ended in mid-July after he required surgery to address a right flexor tendon injury, but his ability to pass a physical suggests he won't face any restrictions this spring. He'll be looking to secure a middle-relief or setup role with the club.
Hunter (forearm) signed with the Phillies on Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The financial details of the contract have not yet been released. Hunter had been paid $18 million by the Phillies over the previous two years, a deal which didn't entirely go as planned as he threw just 5.1 innings in the second season of the contract while battling arm troubles. If healthy, Hunter is a quality arm, as he owns a 3.19 ERA dating back to his conversion to relief back in 2013, but there's plenty of reason to doubt his health heading into his age-33 season.
Hunter underwent surgery on his right flexor tendon Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Hunter was sent to the shelf July 14 due to a right forearm strain, and it was later determined that he needed surgery to repair his flexor tendon.

Hunter was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right forearm strain.
Hunter missed the first three months of the season with a flexor strain in his right elbow and only rejoined the Phillies in late June, but he'll now make his way back to the IL.

Hunter (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday.
Hunter has been out since February due to a flexor strain but is ready to join the Phillies after four minor-league rehab outings.
