Triggs (hip) was able to walk without the aid of crutches Monday for the first time since season-ending surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The right-hander underwent the procedure to repair a torn labrum on his left hip July 13 and has apparently been recovering very well overall. The fact that he ditched his crutches just over a month after surgery is certainly encouraging and another step towards him adhering to the projected timeline of a spring 2018 return to the mound.
Triggs underwent left hip surgery to repair a torn labrum Thursday and will miss the rest of the season, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Surgery had been a possibility for Triggs since he was diagnosed with structural damage back in June and finally decided to undergo the procedure after further medical evaluation. The right-hander put together a productive start to the 2017 campaign, posting a 2.64 ERA over 10 starts, but faltered over his next two outings before he was shut down. He'll begin the long road to recovery this offseason with the hopes of returning to the mound sometime before spring training of 2018.
Triggs (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday.
Marcus Semien was activated from the disabled list Thursday, meaning that a 40-man roster spot needed to be cleared to allow him to come back. Triggs was the easy choice, as he still seems to be several weeks away from getting his throwing program ramped up enough to sniff regular action again. No word has come forth yet on whether or not his injury will require surgery, either, but more information on that front should come forth as he attempts to rehab the issue in the next week or so.
Triggs (hip) was able to play catch Monday and Tuesday, but it has yet to be determined if he'll require season-ending surgery to address his injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The catch sessions have been little more than tests to see how his hip responds to the activity, so even if Triggs is able to steer clear of surgery, it will still likely be several weeks before he ramps up his throwing program. Triggs has been out for just under a month and will remain without a definitive return timetable until a verdict on surgery is rendered.
Triggs may need season-ending hip surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Triggs has been out since early June with a left hip strain, and an MRI revealed structural damage, including a tear in the labrum. The team is still hopeful that Triggs will respond positively to the cortisone shot that he received two weeks ago, but it hasn't had the immediate impact that the right-hander wanted. If he does indeed undergo surgery, he would likely recover in six months, giving him ample time to rehab before spring training.
