Giants' Reyes Moronta: Beginning rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The right-hander hasn't seen game action since April 10 while dealing with a sprained elbow, but he's now entered the final stage of his rehab program. Moronta likely will need multiple appearances in the minors to get back up to game speed, given the length of his absence.

Moronta (elbow) plans to begin a rehab assignment early next week, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

Moronta threw live batting practice in early July, and he's slated to throw a bullpen session this weekend. The right-hander has been sidelined since the beginning of May due to an elbow strain, but he could be on track to return to the Giants in the near future.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Live BP scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) is slated to throw live batting practice Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Moronta began a throwing program in mid-June, and he'll face hitters for the first time nearly a month after he resumed throwing. The Giants are hopeful that the right-hander will be able to start a rehab assignment shortly after Tuesday's throwing session if he doesn't experience any issues afterward.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Begins throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) began a throwing program Monday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

A sprained right elbow has kept Moronta out since mid-April. he's already spent the required 60 days on the injured list, but his return doesn't appear to be imminent, as he'll need to go through a lengthy rehab process given how much time he's missed.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Still not throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) is still receiving treatment and has yet to resume throwing, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Moronta has been on the injured list since April 11, so he would be eligible for activation in mid-June. However, it doesn't sound as if he's made much progress towards a return, and he will remain sidelined for the foreseeable future as a result.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Moved to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Moronta has been dealing with a mild sprained ligament in his elbow and will now be out until at least mid-June. Braden Bishop was claimed off waivers by the Giants in a corresponding move.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Dealing with sprained ligament
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Friday that Moronta (elbow) has a mild sprained ligament and will be out at least a few more weeks, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Moronta sustained a right elbow flexor strain April 10, but he was recently dealing with forearm stiffness. A better idea of Moronta's return timetable could come into focus once he starts throwing again.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Shut down with forearm issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) will be reevaluated after experiencing forearm stiffness, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 28-year-old has been working his way back from the right elbow flexor strain he sustained April 10, but he's still dealing with arm issues. Moronta was looking at a potential return from the injured list in early May, but he should be considered out indefinitely until he receives a new diagnosis.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Could return in early May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) could return in early May, Amy Gutierrez of the Giants' official site reports.

Moronta was shut down with an elbow strain after just his fourth appearance of the season. That was a potentially discouraging sign after he missed all of last year due to shoulder surgery, but this particular problem doesn't appear set to cost him much more than three weeks.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Throws side session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (elbow) threw a side session Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Moronta has been sidelined since April 11 due to a right elbow flexor strain, but he took part in a throwing session Thursday and will throw another side session Saturday. It's not yet clear when Moronta will be able to return to game action, but he appears to be making progress in his recovery.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Shut down with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right elbow flexor strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

After missing the entire 2020 campaign while recovering from labrum surgery for his right shoulder, Moronta looks like he could be dealing with another significant injury. Manager Gabe Kapler said Sunday that Moronta is dealing with a mild strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. However, the fact that he's dealing with a strain rather than soreness suggests that he'll be in line to miss more than the minimum 10 days. With Moronta on the shelf, Tyler Rogers looks like the clear top setup man behind closer Jake McGee.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Adds second hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta pitched a perfect seventh inning to earn a hold in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Rockies. He struck out two.

Moronta threw only 14 pitches (10 strikes) in the inning. The right-hander has a 2.25 ERA, 0.25 WHIP and two holds over four innings this season. As long as he keeps pitching well, Moronta will be in the mix for high-leverage work, although most save chances will likely go to Jake McGee.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Earns hold with perfect inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta pitched a perfect seventh inning and earned a hold in Monday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

Moronta retired Manny Machado, Eric Hosmer and Tommy Pham on groundouts. The 28-year-old Moronta allowed a homer versus the Mariners on Saturday, but he's still expected to log most of his innings in high-leverage situations. He posted a 2.86 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 15 holds across 56.2 innings in 2019, but Moronta missed all of 2020 as he recovered from a surgically repaired torn labrum in his right shoulder.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta threw a scoreless inning with a strikeout in Saturday's spring training win over Cleveland. He was throwing his fastball around 92 mph. "Obviously, we feel like when when he is at his best, he's throwing a little bit harder than that," manager Gabe Kapler told the San Francisco Chronicle.

It was Moronta's spring debut after missing last season due to shoulder surgery. He averaged 97.2 mph with his fastball in 2019, so he likely has a ways to go to build back to his prior form.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta signed a one-year deal with the Giants on Friday to avoid arbitration, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 27-year-old missed last season after undergoing shoulder surgery in September 2019, but he's now officially under contract for 2021. Moronta has a 2.66 ERA since making his big-league debut in 2017, and he's expected to be in competition for the closer's role in spring training,

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Set to compete for closing gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants manager Gabe Kapler suggested earlier this month that Moronta (shoulder) will be given the opportunity to compete for the closer's role in spring training, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "We challenged him to come to camp in his peak physical condition, we challenged him to come to camp dedicating himself to potentially being an important late-inning, high-leverage reliever for us," Kapler said of Moronta. "He's going to have opportunities to take control of a role like that. We'll see what he looks like in spring training, and if he steps up to the plate and emerges as that guy we're going to be really excited about it."

Moronta missed the entire 2020 campaign while rehabbing from shoulder surgery, but he displayed good velocity in his late-season throwing sessions at the Giants' alternate site, putting him on track to enter the spring without any restrictions. The Giants are expected to have a number of arms competing for the ninth-inning gig in the spring, but Moronta probably offers the most traditional closer profile of any reliever currently on the roster. Largely on the strength of his upper-90s fastball and a sharp slider, Moronta has struck out 29.8 percent of the batters he's faced over his three seasons in the big leagues.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Won't pitch in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (shoulder) won't be included on the Giants' taxi squad for the rest of the regular season and playoffs, signaling that he won't return from the 45-day injured list in 2020, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Moronta has been sidelined for just over a year after undergoing surgery last September to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He appeared to have made good progress while rehabbing at the Giants' alternate training site in Sacramento, reaching the final phase of his recovery program by facing hitters in simulated games last week. However, with the Giants closing their alternate site for the season, Moronta wasn't going to have the opportunity to work out regularly in a team environment, so he'll continue to build up his arm at home over the winter. The reliever should enter spring training with few restrictions, if any.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Advances to sim games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (shoulder) will throw one inning during a simulated game Wednesday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 27-year-old has been throwing live batting practice, but he's now progressed to what should be the final stage of his recovery. Moronta has a strong chance of returning from the injured list before the end of the regular season if all goes well in his sim games.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Looks good in live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (shoulder) has looked quite good in live batting practice sessions and has a chance to return to the roster before the end of the year, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Moronta has been out all season while working his way back from shoulder surgery, a procedure he underwent back in September of 2019. He'll be a useful option for the Giants if and when he's ready, as he owns a career 2.66 ERA in 128.1 big-league innings.

Giants' Reyes Moronta: Nearing live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moronta (shoulder) could throw live batting practice as early as next week, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

He has been throwing bullpen sessions at the alternate training site as he works his way back from shoulder surgery. Given what he is returning from and where he stands in his rehab, we could see Moronta back in the majors sometime in September.
