Urias (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Monday, touching 91 mph with his fastball, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Urias hasn't pitched at the big-league level since last May after undergoing shoulder surgery. His fastball average 93 mph prior to his injury, so it's a good sign that its velocity continues to climb, though he's still not back to his former self. He reportedly could be making rehab appearances in July, leaving him on track to return sometime in August.
Urias (shoulder) will throw two bullpen sessions this week and recently touched the upper 80s with his fastball, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The electric southpaw averaged 93 mph with his fastball prior to his significant shoulder injury, which required surgery, so he is clearly not close to his old self. While the Dodgers' rotation has been ravaged by injuries, they will exercise caution with their prized young hurler. It's possible he will begin a rehab assignment in July.
Urias (shoulder) could pitch in games by the end of July, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It's a little surprising that he could return so soon after the All-Star break, but there's still a long way to go before then. He threw off a mound for the first time in late May. Urias will likely require a long rehab stint in the upper levels of the minors, and may even be optioned to Triple-A initially when he is activated from the 60-day disabled list. That said, he could realistically be starting games for the Dodgers at some point in August, so he should be on everyone's radar as a potential stash.
Urias (shoulder) threw off a mound earlier this week for the first time since undergoing anterior capsule surgery on his throwing shoulder last year, Daniel Starkland of Dodger Blue reports.
The recovery process has been a long one for the talented prospect, but manager Dave Roberts still believes Urias can return in the second half of this season. There is no telling how the Dodgers' starting rotation will look at that point, so the 21-year-old could find himself getting back to speed in the minors or coming out of the bullpen in the majors once he is cleared to return to game action. Urias still has plenty of steps to undergo in the recovery process, but dynasty owners have to be pleased that his shoulder is progressing as scheduled.
Urias (shoulder) said Thursday he hopes to throw off the mound "in the near future," Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Urias had his throwing program interrupted to undergo tonsil surgery in early April, but he now appears back on track in his recovery from last June's shoulder surgery. The Dodgers still seems to be targeting July for the 21-year-old's return.
