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.

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.

Phillies' David Robertson: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) played catch for the first time since suffering his right flexor strain Friday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson has been out since mid-April. He doesn't yet have a timeline for his return, but he doesn't appear to be particularly close as he's yet to get back on a mound.

May 1, 2019 05:00 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Still not throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (elbow) has yet to be cleared to throw, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson has already been out over two weeks with a right flexor strain. The issue was considered Grade 1, but it doesn't sound as though he's particularly close to returning.

Phillies' David Robertson: Dealing with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson was diagnosed with a Grade 1 flexor strain in his right elbow Tuesday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Robertson landed on the 10-day injured list Monday with what was originally described as elbow soreness, but the injury was clarified via an MRI. The 34-year-old will be shut down from throwing for a few days before being re-evaluated by the Phillies.

April 15, 2019 06:12 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with right elbow soreness, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

This comes as a bit of a surprise, as Robertson fired a pair of scoreless innings in Sunday's win over the Marlins. The severity of the issue remains unclear; the 34-year-old doesn't seem overly worried at the moment but is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, according to Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Drew Anderson was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Robertson's place in the bullpen, while Seranthony Dominguez and Hector Neris are candidates to get save opportunities while the veteran right-hander is on the shelf.

Phillies' David Robertson: Pitches scoreless eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson pitched around a two-out single to throw a scoreless eighth inning Monday against the Nationals, striking out one batter.

Robertson appears to be back on track after three ugly outings to start the season, not allowing a run in any of his last three trips to the mound. Neither he nor Seranthony Dominguez has a save yet this season, with the team's first two going to Hector Neris and Pat Neshek. That's likely an indication of things to come, as manager Gabe Kapler will continue to use his most trusted relievers in high-leverage situations regardless of the inning.

Phillies' David Robertson: Looks fine in low-leverage outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson pitched a clean ninth inning in Friday's 10-4 win over the Twins, allowing one hit while striking out a pair.

After struggling in his first three appearances, Robertson finally had his first scoreless outing Friday. His season numbers are still quite ugly, with a 12.00 ERA, a 3.67 WHIP, and a 3:5 K:BB, but it's possible that he's now figured things out. The veteran threw just 3.2 Grapefruit League innings, so he may have just needed a bit of a tune-up before getting back to his typical self.

Phillies' David Robertson: Takes ugly loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson (0-1) took the loss in Wednesday's 9-8 game against the Nationals as he gave up a hit and three walks while failing to record an out.

Robertson's season has gotten off to a disastrous start as he has allowed four runs over two innings, and has given up at least one run in each of his three appearances. Wednesday's performance was especially unsightly, as he served up a leadoff single before walking the next three hitters to end the game. The 33-year-old will need to straighten things out if he is going to be in the mix for regular save chances for the Phillies.

Phillies' David Robertson: Allows two runs in non-save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Called on to protect a four-run lead in the ninth inning, Robertson gave up two runs on two hits and one walk over his inning against the Braves on Saturday.

Robertson permitted a two-run homer to Charlie Culberson but finished out the game without further damage to preserve an 8-6 win. The 33-year-old has given up three earned runs in his first two appearances of the season and will need to improve in order to get regular save chances.

Phillies' David Robertson: Unimpressive in Phillies debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson allowed a run on two hits and a walk in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Robertson may still need a bit of a tune-up after throwing just 3.2 innings in spring training. He was poor in his first outing in Philadelphia, walking Josh Donaldson and allowing singles to Freddie Freeman and Ronald Acuna before getting his first out. It's potentially significant that he threw with a seven-run lead while Seranthony Dominguez remained in the bullpen, but with an off day Friday the Phillies may have simply been trying to let Robertson get some work in.

March 18, 2019 05:24 PM
Phillies' David Robertson: Taking it easy in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson has thrown just two innings so far in camp, allowing one solo homer and striking out three batters.

Robertson signed well before camp, so his light workload is probably just a case of a veteran knowing what he needs to do to get ready for the season. Robertson's role with his new team remains unclear. The Phillies have said he won't be a traditional closer, but manager Gabe Kapler did have a preferred man for the ninth inning for stretches of last season. The veteran would be an obvious candidate should the Phillies choose anyone for the job due to his 2.88 career ERA and 137 career saves.
