Triggs (forearm) will undergo thoracic outlet surgery Sept. 26.
Triggs has been out since mid-May with what was labeled a forearm issue. He appeared to be nearing a return to action before suffering a setback in an early-September rehab start. The surgery is a significant one and carries serious risk that Triggs won't be the same pitcher once he returns -- see Matt Harvey for a notable recent example. A more precise recovery timeline should be available following the procedure.
Triggs (forearm) suffered a setback following his Wednesday rehab start for High-A Stockton and has been shut down for the time being, Michael Wagaman of MLB.com reports.
Triggs fired a total of 34 pitches in what was his first taste of game action since May 17, and it appears the workload may have been a bit much. Following that appearance, the right-hander reportedly began feeling similar nerve irritation symptoms to those that landed him on the disabled list, leading to the shutdown. With just over three weeks remaining in the regular season, Triggs' chances of pitching at the big-league level again this season are slimmer than ever.
Triggs (forearm) fired 1.2 scoreless innings in High-A Stockton's loss to Visalia in a California League playoff loss Wednesday, allowing a hit, issuing two walks, and recording two strikeouts.
With the exception of the control issues, it was as about an encouraging of a first rehab outing as Triggs and the Athletics could have hoped for. The right-hander worked up to 34 pitches, certainly a solid workload after not having seen game action since May 17. Triggs presumably remains fairly far removed from being big-league ready, but he's likely to up his pitch count in his next minor-league turn.
Triggs (forearm) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Saturday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Triggs has been on the shelf since mid-May with a forearm injury. The right-hander continues to slowly work his way through a throwing program, and is hoping to be available as a reliever at some point in September should the A's want to call him up.
Triggs (forearm) played catch again Wednesday, his second day doing so this week, Eric He of MLB.com reports.
Triggs is slowly working his arm back into shape after being shut down from throwing for over a month. He'd resumed playing catch Monday, and the fact he was able to do so again just 48 hours later implies there have been no setbacks. The right-hander is likely to continue being brought along slowly and will eventually need a multi-appearance rehab assignment before being considered for activation.
