Robles (elbow) will be sidelined for months, according to manager Dave Martinez, The Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.
He will not need surgery on his hyperextended left elbow, and should be able to return at some point this season. However, Martinez's estimated return timetable for the Nationals' top prospect makes him a tough guy to continue to stash in redraft leagues. Even if he were to return in late June or early July, Robles would likely spend a good chunk of time at Triple-A rounding back into form before potentially seeing a late-season promotion.
Robles (elbow) won't need surgery on his left elbow after further evaluation Monday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
After waiting for the swelling to cease, Washington's medical staff determined Robles won't require season-ending surgery. This is good news for the Nationals, although he'll likely miss at least some time as he goes through rehab. There's no timetable for his return just yet, but he figures to be back at some point during the 2018 season.
Robles has been diagnosed with a hyperextended left elbow and will be reevaluated Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The Nationals will wait for the swelling in Robles' injured elbow to go down before taking another look. Robles suffered the injury Monday on a dive for a flyball at Triple-A Syracuse, but early signs are that he avoided major damage to his elbow. Once he goes in for re-examination, there should be a firmer timetable for Robles' return.
Robles (elbow) will head to Washington DC on Tuesday for further evaluation after x-rays came back negative, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.
Robles exited Monday's game early after diving for a fly ball, but he received good news when x-rays on his left elbow came back negative. More news on his status should be forthcoming after he undergoes further testing Tuesday. Robles is currently listed as Washington's No. 1 minor-league prospect.
Robles was removed from Monday's game with Triple-A Syracuse due to an apparent injury, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
The top prospect reportedly came off the field with his left arm hanging limply on his side after he dove for a ball and landed awkwardly. No word has come forth as to the exact nature and severity of the issue, but things should clear up once he's evaluated by team doctors. Consider him day-to-day for the time being.
