David Robertson: Set to throw for teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) will have a throwing showcase for scouts on Feb. 11, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

The 35-year-old covered 6.2 innings for the Phillies during 2019 and required Tommy John surgery in August of that year, leading to the team declining his $12 million club option for 2021 earlier this offseason. Robertson last saw extensive action in 2018 with the Yankees an delivered a 3.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 91:26 K:BB over 69.2 innings while recording five saves and 21 holds. Assuming all goes well in the showcase, he shouldn't have a problem securing at least a minor-league deal somewhere for the upcoming campaign.

David Robertson: Throws bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) threw a bullpen Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Robertson was shut down at the end of August after a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and his team option was declined by the Phillies after the end of the 2020 season. The right-hander's bullpen session was his first of the offseason, although he's planning a showcase for teams in early February. Robertson underwent his procedure in August of 2019 and could return to game action early in the 2021 campaign if he's able to find a roster spot during the offseason.

David Robertson: Heads to open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) became a free agent after the Phillies declined his team option Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Rather than pay the veteran $12 million for his services next season, the Phillies will pay him a $2 million buyout to get his contract off the books. The 35-year-old righty will wind up making $184,000 per pitch over the course of his contract with the Phillies, as he landed on the injured list after throwing just 6.2 innings in 2019 and wound up requiring Tommy John surgery. He underwent the procedure late enough into that year that he was unable to return at any point in 2020. Injury and age risk will certainly suppress Robertson's market this winter, though there should still be plenty of interest in a pitcher with a career 2.90 ERA and 137 saves.

Phillies' David Robertson: Set to miss remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) won't throw for another six weeks and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Robertson recently faced a setback in his recovery from Tommy John surgery that forced him to be shut down. It's unclear if he'll be ready for spring training in 2021.

Phillies' David Robertson: Shut down after setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) suffered a setback and has been shut down from throwing, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

The 35-year-old appeared to be nearing the end of his recovery from Tommy John surgery as he advanced to throwing live batting practice earlier this month, but it's now possible he's unable to return this season. Robertson is scheduled to meet with the team in the near future to determine the next course of action.

Phillies' David Robertson: Live BP on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) will throw a live batting practice session Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The veteran right-hander completed a bullpen session Thursday as he continue his recovery from Tommy John surgery in August 2019. Robertson could take the mound for the Phillies sometime this season if he continues to progress without any setbacks.

Phillies' David Robertson: Heading to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) will throw in Philadelphia within the next few days before heading to the team's alternate training site, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Robertson is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in August of 2019. If his recovery continues smoothly, he'll have a shot to pitch at some point late this season, though the Phillies have yet to announce a target date for his return.

Phillies' David Robertson: Potentially benefitting from delay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) could be helped by the delayed start to the regular season, as previous reports from Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic indicated he hoped to be back from Tommy John surgery around the midpoint of the season's original schedule.

Robertson underwent Tommy John surgery back in August of 2019, so his goal of being back halfway through the campaign may have always been overly ambitious. Still, if the season extends into October and beyond, there's a much greater chance of the veteran making an impact than had previously seemed possible. Robertson has thrown just 6.2 innings for the Phillies since singing a two-year, $23 million deal with the team prior to the 2019 campaign, but he has 137 career saves to his name and could potentially add a handful more if and when he returns.

Phillies' David Robertson: Moved to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies will place Robertson (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

The move is merely procedural, as Robertson is already slated to be sidelined well beyond the minimum 60 days while he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he required last August. Per Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic, Robertson is optimistic that he'll be able to contribute for the Phillies at some point in the second half, but he'll have several hurdles in the rehab process to clear before a target return date emerges. Philadelphia officially signed reliever Tommy Hunter on Wednesday to take Robertson's spot on the 40-man roster.

Phillies' David Robertson: Could return in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) could return sometime in the second half, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson underwent Tommy John surgery in August. A typical recovery timeline from the procedure takes at least one year, but that still leaves the veteran time to return for at least the last month of the season if he's on the shorter end of that time frame. In theory, Robertson could add to his 137 career saves if and when he returns, but he won't be back in action for long enough that he should be drafted in single-season leagues.

Phillies' David Robertson: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson had Tommy John surgery and will likely miss the entire 2020 season, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The Phillies signed Robertson to a two-year, $23 million deal in January and will wind up getting just 6.2 innings out of him over the life of that contract.

Phillies' David Robertson: Needs surgery, done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) will require season-ending surgery to repair his injured flexor tendon, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Robertson is headed for a second opinion to determine the extent of the surgery; there's a possibility the veteran right-hander could need Tommy John surgery, which would put his status for the 2020 season in doubt. He's been sidelined since mid-April with a flexor strain.

July 27, 2019 06:48 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Status still murky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) remains without a timetable for his return, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. "He's progressing," manager Gabe Kapler said. "He's just still not progressing as fast as we all had hoped he would."

Robertson has been sidelined since mid-April with a flexor strain, and a return for the veteran right-hander does not appear imminent. Hector Neris should continue to see the majority of save opportunities for Philadelphia with Robertson sidelined.

Phillies' David Robertson: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) threw about 20 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

It's Robertson's first bullpen session since he landed on the injured list with the flexor strain in mid-April, and he still has significant work to do in building up his velocity. The 34-year-old has another session scheduled for Wednesday, and if all goes well, he could return to the Phillies toward the end of July.

Phillies' David Robertson: Could throw bullpen Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) could throw a light bullpen session Wednesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson has been playing catch for nearly two weeks, but reports from just two days ago suggested that he was at least 10 days away from throwing a bullpen session. It appears that he may be several days ahead of that schedule, but given that he's already been out for over two months, it's hard to see him returning until after the All-Star break.

Phillies' David Robertson: Nearing mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) could throw off a mound in 10-12 days, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

He has been playing catch, but throwing off a mound will represent a big step in his rehab. If he gets on a mound in early July, we could be eyeing an activation after the All-Star break.

June 12, 2019 05:12 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) played catch Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

This is an encouraging development for Robertson, who had been shut down from throwing for nearly a month prior to Tuesday's round of catch. The veteran reliever has been sidelined since April 15, so he'll need plenty of time to get back up to speed before the Phillies feel comfortable activating him. As such, a timetable for his return likely won't emerge until he ramps up his throwing program.

Phillies' David Robertson: Nearing return to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) is close to beginning a throwing progression, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson originally wasn't expected to resume throwing until mid-June, so this is certainly welcomed news for the Phillies and fantasy owners alike. Given the length of his absence -- Robertson has been on the shelf since April 15 -- the veteran right-hander will need plenty of time to get back up to speed. That said, manager Gabe Kapler noted a return before the end of June is "not out of the question" for Robertson.

May 25, 2019 10:32 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

This is strictly a bookkeeping move that allows the Phillies to purchase the contract of J.D. Hammer. Robertson is not expected to resume throwing until at least mid-June.

May 14, 2019 01:28 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Shut down for three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) won't resume throwing for at least three more weeks, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Robertson visited Dr. James Andrews on Monday, who recommended the veteran right-hander rest for a few weeks before resuming a throwing program. The 34-year-old has been sidelined since mid-April with a right flexor strain; while he remains without a timetable for his return, this recent setback suggests Robertson won't be ready to return until the end of June or beginning of July, at the earliest.
