Merryweather (elbow) tossed two innings of a simulated game today, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.
Merryweather underwent Tommy John surgery in March of last year and is still progressing through his rehab. He will have another bullpen session on Saturday. The 27-year-old could progress to facing live batters soon. Once Merryweather is healthy he should work his way to Triple-A Buffalo, where he finished up the 2017 season.
Merryweather (elbow) is expected to begin the season at extended spring training, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in March of 2018 and still seems to be on track in his recovery program. As a starter, his rehab naturally takes a little longer than that of a reliever, but it doesn't seem like the Blue Jays have any concerns over his progress so far. Once he's healthy, Merryweather will likely head to Triple-A Buffalo after posting a 6.58 ERA in his first 78 frames at the level back in 2017.
Merryweather was reported as the PTBNL last month, but he wasn't able to be officially traded since he was on the minor-league disabled list. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery back in March, so he may miss some time at the beginning of next season.
Merryweather can't officially be named as he is on the minor-league disabled list after undergoing Tommy John in March, but is currently the agreed-upon player between the two clubs. The 26-year-old had a 6.58 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 76:25 K:BB in 16 starts at Triple-A Columbus in 2017.
