Glover (shoulder) progressed to throwing from 75 feet Thursday, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.
Glover has been dealing with shoulder inflammation all spring and had yet to resume throwing by the end of March, so this development is welcome news. The 24-year-old is on the 60-day disabled list so he is still looking at a return in late May at the earliest.
Glover (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
Glover has been battling shoulder inflammation all spring and is yet to throw. He'll now be ineligible to return until late May. He's expected to fill a late-inning role once he returns to the roster, but his placement on the 60-day DL indicates that he's nowhere close to being ready to go. The move opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Miguel Montero.
Glover has yet to begin throwing again after reporting shoulder inflammation early in camp, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.
At this point, he's all but guaranteed to begin the season on the disabled list and remain in extended spring training when the Nats break camp and head north, and the right-hander will need weeks to build his arm strength back up once he is able to pitch again. Glover is still expected to factor into the late-inning mix in the bullpen once he gets healthy, but when that might be is a mystery for now.
Glover (shoulder) has not been cleared to begin throwing this spring, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.
Glover is dealing with shoulder inflammation and is yet to start throwing since camp began two weeks ago. This is a concerning situation especially considering the reliever missed half of the 2017 season with a rotator cuff injury, in addition to a left hip impingement earlier in the campaign. There still hasn't been any word as to how the club is dealing with this recent setback but with Opening Day less than a month away, it will be important for him to start throwing in the near future in order to be ready in time.
Glover hasn't thrown yet in spring training after arriving at camp with a sore shoulder, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. An MRI later revealed that Glover is dealing with inflammation in the shoulder, according to Eddie Matz of ESPN.com.
Glover missed significant time last season while recovering from a rotator cuff injury, so it's somewhat troubling that he's already feeling pain in the shoulder after an offseason of recovery. The Nationals will presumably wait and see how Glover responds to rest over the next few days before determining his next step. A closing candidate for the Nationals last spring, Glover will have to settle for a middle-relief role if he's healthy to pitch at the start of the upcoming season with Sean Doolittle now entrenched as the team's ninth-inning man.
