Christian Friedrich: Clears waivers, heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Friedrich (elbow) cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent Monday.

The Padres dropped Friedrich from their 40-man roster after elbow and lat injuries kept him from making an appearance with the big club in 2017. He passed through waivers untouched, but rather than return to San Diego's Triple-A affiliate, Friedrich opted to test the free agent waters. While he's expected to be ready for spring training next season, the 30-year-old southpaw is coming off elbow surgery in August, so he could be forced to settle for a minor-league deal. He posted a 4.80 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 129.1 innings during his last full season (2016).

Padres' Christian Friedrich: To undergo season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Friedrich will undergo an elbow scope in the coming days, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Friedrich suffered a setback in his rehab on Aug. 5 and will be forced to undergo elbow surgery to correct the issue. He'll be out for the remainder of the 2017 season, but the Padres expect him to be ready to return to action next spring.

Padres' Christian Friedrich: Likely shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres aren't expected Friedrich (elbow) to pitch again this season after the left-hander suffered a setback during his rehab start Aug. 5 with High-A Lake Elsinore, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. "[Friedrich] just can't get over the hump," Padres manager Andy Green said Monday. "I would assume at this point in time [a potential return] doesn't look good. I've said that before and we took another shot at it. It's increasingly unlikely he pitches for us this season. He just couldn't pitch pain-free. It's doubtful he throws for us."

Friedrich was scheduled to meet with doctors Monday to decide if arthroscopic surgery was necessary for the elbow, which he wasn't able to extend on sliders during the rehab start in the California League. The 30-year-old has been felled by a number of injuries since spring training, when a strained elbow and lat injury forced him to the 10-day disabled list entering the regular season. He was later shifted to the 60-day DL and began a rehab assignment June 8, making four starts before being shut down with ongoing discomfort. After restating the rehab process a month later, it didn't take long for Friedrich to succumb to another setback. Friedrich is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason and will likely have to settle for a minor-league deal while he attempts to return from injury.

Padres' Christian Friedrich: Suffers setback in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Friedrich (elbow) is scheduled to see a doctor Monday after suffering a setback in his latest rehab start, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

This is another tough break for Friedrich, who only recently resumed his rehab assignment after being shut down for most of July due to recurring elbow soreness. The 30-year-old said he wasn't pain free during his most recent outing for High-A Lake Elsinore, though more should be known about the severity of his setback following Monday's examination.

Padres' Christian Friedrich: Resumes rehab at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Friedrich (elbow) resumed his rehab stint with High-A Lake Elisnore on Monday, tossing three scoreless innings with no issues, Bill Center of MLB.com reports.

The southpaw was shut down for the better part of July after suffering soreness during a bullpen session, so his return to the mound provides some hope to an upcoming return date. Friedrich is scheduled to throw between five and six innings during his next rehab outing, which could give the team a firmer idea as to his readiness. After posting a 4.80 ERA over 23 starts for the Padres last season, the 30-year-old has yet to play this year while battling back from a rash of injuries and could potentially return as a long reliever.
