Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Shifts to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Blackburn's progression has been slow since being shut down in early July, but his move to the 60-day disabled doesn't prevent him from returning before the end of the regular season. The 24-year-old remains without a timetable for his return as his throwing program advances slowly. The Athletics needs to create space on the 40-man roster for the acquisition of right-hander Cory Gearrin, prompting the move.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Yet to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) has yet to resume throwing after being shut down in early July, Eric He of MLB.com reports.

Blackburn has already been confirmed to have no structural damage, but that apparently hasn't made his recovery any quicker. The reliever will likely need a relatively lengthy rehab assignment whenever he's healthy enough to embark on one, a timeline that remains very murky at this point.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Shut down from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) underwent an MRI on Tuesday which revealed no structural damage, but he'll still be shut down for a couple weeks, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

The Athletics were hopeful earlier Tuesday that Blackburn would spend minimal time on the shelf, but it now appears as though a return in July is out of the window. Trevor Cahill (Achilles) and Daniel Mengden (foot) could return from the disabled list this week, which could leave Blackburn as the odd man out of the starting rotation once he's healthy. Blackburn has a 7.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Hopeful for short DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics are hopeful that Blackburn (elbow), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, will only be sidelined for a brief period, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Blackburn was diagnosed with tennis elbow following his July 6 start against the Indians and is scheduled to meet with team doctors in the Bay Area this week as the Athletics look to determine if there's any additional damage. If the current diagnosis holds, Blackburn could resume throwing at some point during the All-Star break and return from the DL shortly thereafter. The injury may nonetheless hinder Blackburn's chances of regaining his rotation spot, as the Athletics could get starters Trevor Cahill (Achilles) and Daniel Mengden (foot) back from the DL this week. Blackburn may not have much of a case for sticking in the rotation over back-end starters like Frankie Montas, Chris Bassitt, Brett Anderson and Edwin Jackson after struggling to a 7.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in six outings prior to landing on the shelf.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Heads to DL with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics placed Blackburn on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right elbow lateral epicondylitis.

The injury is better known as tennis elbow, suggesting Blackburn is likely battling a case of tendinitis. It's not expected that a long-term absence will be in play for Blackburn, but the right-hander will be sidelined through at least the All-Star break and is far from a safe bet to regain his rotation spot once he's back to full strength. Blackburn has posted a 7.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP over six starts with the Athletics, who activated Brett Anderson (shoulder) from the DL ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Indians. Oakland is also expected to get fellow rotation members Daniel Mengden (foot) and Trevor Cahill (Achilles) back from the DL shortly before or after the break.
