Rea (lat) made a rehab start for Double-A San Antonio on Tuesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The start was Rea's first of any kind since 2016, as he missed all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery and was delayed to start this season by a strained lat. He allowed four runs on four hits in 3.1 innings, striking out two while walking one.
Rea (lat) is set to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A San Antonio, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.
Rea has been on the disabled list with a right lat strain since the start of the season and recently completed his rehab work at extended spring training in Arizona. The expected length of his rehab assignment remains unclear, but the 27-year-old appears to be progressing well in his recovery.
Rea was moved to the 60-day disabled list prior to Friday's game.
Rea was officially placed on the 10-day DL earlier this week and is not expected to be back in action until this summer after straining his right lat in early March. The right-hander missed the entire 2017 season due to Tommy John surgery.
Rea (lat) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday. The move is retroactive to March 26.
Rea has been dealing with a strained right lat since the beginning of March and only recently resumed throwing. The 27-year-old reminds without a timetable for his return, but he'll essentially have to go through an individual spring training all over again to build up to a starter's workload, which could end up taking more than a month. Rea missed all of 2017 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, so the Padres will likely give him ample time to get back up to speed.
Rea (lat) resumed throwing off flat ground Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
After sitting out the entire 2017 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, Rea received a clean bill of health heading into spring training, but the right-hander never ended up making a single appearance after experiencing shoulder issues in early March. The Padres later diagnosed Rea with a strained right lat, which had prevented him from throwing for nearly three weeks before his activity Thursday. It appears Rea will have to essentially go through an individual spring training all over again to build up to a starter's workload, which could take more than a month. San Diego may elect to move Rea to the 60-day disabled list in an attempt to gain some roster flexibility, as it's unlikely the 27-year-old would be called upon to join the big-league rotation anyway in the season's first two months.
