Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Not yet facing hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions at the Pirates' spring-training complex in Bradenton, Fla. over the past few weeks, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The same applies to Edgar Santana (elbow), who like Kuhl, is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. Both pitchers previously left the door open for returning late in the 2019 season, but the fact that neither has advanced to facing live hitters yet suggests that may no longer be a realistic goal. Kuhl should head into spring training with few restrictions, however.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throws off slope
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) threw off a slope this week, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Teams have slopes at their spring training complexes, which are essentially mini mounds. Kuhl is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, but is not expected to return until spring training of 2020.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Extends throwing to 120 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) is throwing on flat ground at 120 feet, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

This marks another step forward for Kuhl, who had been limited to throwing from 90 feet in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. He's expected to take a 10-day break from throwing within the next two weeks, which is a scheduled part of his rehab, before picking things back up. He's expected to miss the entire 2019 campaign but should be ready for spring training next year.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throwing from 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) recently increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 90 feet, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Both Kuhl and Edgar Santana are at the same stage of their respective recoveries from Tommy John surgery and aren't expected to resume mound work until later in the season. Kuhl is slated to miss the entire 2019 campaign but should report to camp next spring with few restrictions, if any.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kuhl underwent Tommy John surgery in September and was already ruled out for 2019, so this was a procedural move that was inevitable. The 26-year-old has been playing catch from 75 feet this week as he continues through the early stages of his throwing program.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throwing from flat ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) has been playing catch from 75 feet this week, Nubyjas Wilborn of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kuhl is still in the early stages of his throwing program as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in September. The Pirates have already ruled him out for 2019, but he could enter spring training next season with few restrictions, if any.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow) resumed throwing Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kuhl played catch with teammate Edgar Santana, who is also recovering from Tommy John surgery. The session went well, according to Kuhl, but he's nevertheless not expected to return at any point this season, as he went under the knife in September for a procedure which typically takes over a year to return from.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Long road to recovery begins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (elbow), who will miss the 2019 season, is scheduled to resume a throwing program on the first day of spring training, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The righty, who last pitched June 26, attempted to rehab his elbow before opting for Tommy John surgery in September. Kuhl revealed that his ulnar collateral ligament was already 30 percent torn when he attempted his comeback prior to shutting things down. With the high rate of success from elbow surgery, fantasy players could find value in the hard-throwing right-hander, but not until the 2020 campaign.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This is a tough break for Kuhl, who opted for surgery after suffering a setback earlier in the month. The typical recovery timeline takes around 14-to-16 months, meaning the right-hander will be sidelined through the 2019 season. Kuhl posted a 4.55 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 81:33 K:BB across 16 starts (85 innings) prior to suffering the injury.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Undergoes elbow surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl underwent elbow surgery Wednesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

After getting a second opinion on his elbow following a setback last week, Kuhl elected to go the surgical route. He initially suffered a forearm strain near the end of June and was attempting to make a return before the end of the 2018 season when he felt tightness in his arm while throwing off flat ground earlier this month. More details regarding this procedure and a timetable for his eventual return will come to light in the near future once the Pirates release the details.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Examination coming Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) will be re-examined by Dr. David Altchek in New York on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kuhl has been out since late June and recently had to cancel a scheduled bullpen session after suffering a setback in his recovery. A timetable for Kuhl's return should become clearer after the evaluation, though it's probably safe to rule him out for the rest of the 2018 campaign with just two weeks remaining and the right-hander having not faced hitters since late June.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Set for further evaluation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) will require further evaluation after suffering a setback earlier this week, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kuhl was forced to skip his expected bullpen session Tuesday due to lingering forearm tightness that he felt while throwing off flat ground. Even if Kuhl receives clean results, there may not be enough time for him to return to game speed this season.

September 12, 2018 12:09 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Postpones throwing session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) was scheduled to throw off a mound Tuesday but scrapped the session after feeling some tightness when throwing on flat ground, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Kuhl has been out since late June with the forearm injury and is simply hoping to see game action again this season, either with the Pirates or in an instructional league. The 26-year-old indicated he didn't aggravate the injury and currently doesn't expect to be examined further.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Tosses bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kuhl threw all fastballs in the session, which apparently went well. The right-hander has been on the shelf since the end of June with a forearm injury, but the Pirates are hoping to see him play somewhere competitively this season, either in the majors or in an instructional league.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throws off half mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) threw off the slope of the mound Wednesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

This marks the first time Kuhl has been able to throw off a mound since landing on the DL with a forearm strain at the end of June. The next step for Kuhl will be completing multiple bullpen sessions, followed by tossing live batting practice and pitching in simulated games before being deemed ready to rejoin the big club. With all those hurdles still to clear and just over a month to go in the season, Kuhl isn't a safe bet to pitch for the Pirates again in 2018.

August 23, 2018 01:44 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Ups throwing distance to 90 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) has advanced to throwing from up to 90 feet off flat ground, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kuhl will likely extend his throwing distance a little more over the next week before perhaps gaining clearance to pitch off a mound. The Pirates remain hopeful that Kuhl will be able to pitch again this season, though an official timeline for a potential return from the 60-day disabled list probably won't be established until he begins a rehab assignment.

Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Throws from 50 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) played catch from around 50 feet prior to Saturday's game against the Cubs, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Kuhl has now thrown on back-to-back days, which is good news for Pittsburgh. He's been on the disabled list with a forearm strain since June 29, and although the timetable for his return is still a bit murky, the Pirates are optimistic he could return prior to the conclusion of the 2018 campaign. The next step for Kuhl figures to be throwing off a mound.

August 17, 2018 04:48 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Plays catch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl played catch Friday for the first time since suffering a strained forearm back in late June, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

If Kuhl progresses without setbacks, the team believes he'll be able to return to action sometime in September. Prior to the injury, the 25-year-old struggled to a 4.55 ERA in 16 starts.

August 15, 2018 12:33 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: To resume throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) will begin a throwing program during the Pirates' upcoming homestand, which begins Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Kuhl hit the disabled list in late June with a forearm strain and has remained shut down since then. The club believes he'll be able to get back up to speed in time to throw meaningful innings in September, but he'll have to progress smoothly without any setbacks for that to be a possibility.

August 2, 2018 12:00 PM
Pirates' Chad Kuhl: Shifted to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhl (forearm) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

Since Kuhl landed on the DL in late June, this move guarantees that he will remain sidelined until the end of August, as previously expected. The right-hander has yet to resume throwing after being shut down for four weeks starting July 11. That timeline indicates that he should be able to start a throwing progression next week so long as there is no lingering discomfort in his forearm. This move clears up a 40-man roster spot for Chris Archer.
