Glover (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Glover has been battling a forearm strain since late February. The transaction doesn't appear to have a significant impact on his return date, as he was already not expected back until late May. Carter Kieboom's contract was selected in a corresponding move.
Glover (forearm) said Saturday that he has resumed throwing from 120 feet off flat ground at extended spring training, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Glover noted that he's about two weeks ahead of schedule compared to what the Nationals anticipated after shutting him down early in spring training with a right forearm strain. Even so, the Nationals likely won't have an idea regarding a target date for the right-hander's return until he has been cleared to face hitters again. Since Glover has yet to advance even to mound work at this point, there's reason to think his absence will stretch deep into May, if not later.
Glover (forearm) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
This was expected, as Glover has been battling a forearm strain for most of spring and only recently resumed throwing. Look for the right-hander's return date to come into focus once he progresses further along in his throwing program. In the meantime, Trevor Rosenthal, Kyle Barraclough and Justin Miller are expected to handle the majority of setup duties in Glover's absence.
Glover (forearm) has thrown off flat ground twice recently, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Glover has been shut down for most of the spring with a forearm strain. While this is a step in the right direction for the right-hander, he still needs to go through his own spring training to build his arm back up to strength, leaving him far away from a potential return. With Glover opening the season on the shelf, Trevor Rosenthal, Kyle Barraclough and Justin Miller will be tasked with the majority of setup duties.
Glover said Tuesday that he was diagnosed with a right forearm strain after undergoing an MRI a day earlier, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The diagnosis is somewhat of a silver lining for Glover, who was feared to be dealing with a structural problem after complaining of elbow tightness following his Grapefruit League appearance Sunday against the Cardinals. The Nationals will still shut down Glover and take things slow with him this spring in light of his checkered medical history, but the 25-year-old expressed confidence he would be ready for Opening Day. The hard-throwing Glover will be a candidate to form part of the bridge to closer Sean Doolittle once he gets full clearance.
