Conforto (shoulder) has been cleared to play catch during the club's spring camp but remains unable to begin swinging, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.
Conforto continues to work his way back from early September surgery to repair a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder. Although this is a step in the right direction, it doesn't give us any indication on a more concise timetable for the outfielder and it remains likely that he will miss a few weeks at the start of the season. Expect more updates as spring training gets underway.
General manager Sandy Alderson stated that Conforto (shoulder) likely won't be ready to return at the beginning of the year, as the club is targeting May 1 for his first appearance of the 2018 season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
This remains in line with what Alderson said in mid-December, as the star outfielder continues to recover from September surgery that repaired a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder. Conforto will likely begin the year on the DL, but more should be known regarding his status once he's able to begin baseball activities, with a more concise timetable coming into focus around the start of spring training.
Conforto (shoulder) likely won't be ready to play by Opening Day of the 2018 season in the estimation of general manager Sandy Alderson, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Conforto is still a few months away from resuming baseball activities following his early-September surgery to repair a torn posterior capsule in his left shoulder. A clearer picture of his timeline will come into focus once he's able to resume baseball activities, but Conforto may open the season on the disabled list.
Conforto said he won't resume baseball activities for six months and can't guarantee he'll be ready for Opening Day, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.
General manager Sandy Alderson originally said Conforto's recovery from shoulder surgery would take roughly six months, but it now appears that's how long it will take until he's able to resume baseball activities. With this updated recovery timetable, it seems Conforto will miss a chunk of spring training and possibly the start of 2018. He put together a healthy .279/.384/.555 slash line with 27 homers in 109 games prior to injuring himself, so he should immediately reclaim an everyday spot in the outfield once he's eventually healthy.
General manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that Conforto's recovery from shoulder surgery will take "roughly six months," Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Conforto will undergo surgery in Los Angeles on Wednesday to repair a tear in the posterior capsule in his left shoulder. With this estimated recovery timetable, Conforto seems likely to miss the start of spring training, and he won't have any real margin for a setback if he's to start the regular season on time. The 24-year-old established himself as one of the game's top young hitters during his time on the field this season, and once healthy, he should immediately reclaim an everyday spot in the outfield.
