Zimmer's rehab following July shoulder surgery is going well, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The outfielder has been rehabbing at the Indians' spring facility in Goodyear, Arizona. He is expected to begin a throwing program and a hitting program soon. The 26-year-old appeared in just 34 games prior to the injury in 2018, hitting .226/.281/.330 with two homers and four steals.
Zimmer (shoulder) underwent surgery on his right shoulder Friday to repair his labrum and is looking at an 8-to-12-month recovery timetable, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The fact Zimmer underwent shoulder surgery was already known, but there was no prior indication the issue was as severe as the end result. The 25-year-old first suffered the shoulder injury in mid-June and was diagnosed with inflammation following an MRI, and he subsequently received an anti-inflammatory injection to address the issue. The specifics of the labrum issue remain unclear, but Zimmer will be sidelined for the rest of 2018 and may not be ready for Opening Day 2019 even if he's back on the field in eight months, as he'd still miss at least some of spring training.
Zimmer underwent right shoulder surgery Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Manager Terry Francona didn't provide any additional details on Zimmer's procedure besides the fact that Dr. Keith Meister performed the operation in Texas. A timetable and recovery plan should come to light within the next couple days, though it's expected that Zimmer will be sidelined through the month of August. He initally hit the minor-league DL after suffering the injury in mid-June.
Zimmer (shoulder) received an anti-inflammatory shot for the inflammation in his right shoulder Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Zimmer sustained the shoulder injury June 13 and has since been battling inflammation that put him on the minor-league disabled list. The 25-year-old will miss at least four weeks and could be held out through early August.
Zimmer will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Zimmer is on the minor-league disabled list after suffering a shoulder injury Wednesday. He has experienced lingering discomfort, leading to the need for more tests. More should be known about the severity of his injury after the MRI.
