Graterol (forearm) threw from 90 feet Sunday and could throw off a mound in a few days, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports. "We want to keep him with us, keep our pitching guys watching him closely, and making sure the delivery gets where it needs to be, stays where it needs to be," manager Dave Roberts stated when asked about the reliever.
Graterol remains without a timetable to return from the 10-day injured list, but the fact that he has been able to resume throwing is a positive sign for his overall outlook. The right-hander has tossed only 1.1 innings this season after getting a late start to the campaign and has struggled in his three appearances, yielding three earned runs.
Graterol's (forearm) MRI came back clean Tuesday but he is without a timetable to resume throwing, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
The MRI results, or lack thereof, are encouraging, but it still doesn't sound like Graterol will be back on a mound particularly soon. Blake Treinen and Victor Gonzalez will work as the Dodgers' top setup men in the short term.
Graterol (forearm) underwent an MRI on Tuesday, the results of which have yet to be released, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Graterol was brought along slowly to start the season and didn't make his MLB debut until mid-April. He allowed three runs in 1.1 innings across three innings before landing on the injured list with forearm tightness. His expected return date should become clearer once the results of his MRI have been made public.
Graterol was placed on the 10-day injured list with right forearm tightness Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Graterol has been used sparingly after a delayed start to the season, as he's thrown only 1.1 innings across three appearances. It's unclear when he suffered the injury, though he last pitched April 26. The nature of the injury is cause for some concern, but no timeline for his absence has been disclosed.
Graterol was charged with a blown save against San Diego on Sunday, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning.
Graterol was summoned from the team's alternate site Sunday after missing the beginning of the campaign while working his arm back into game shape. He was summoned in the seventh inning with Los Angeles staked to a 2-1 lead, but the right-hander gave up a single and a double to allow the tying run to score. The rust is understandable given Graterol's long layoff, and he should get plenty of opportunities to pitch in meaningful situations moving forward.
The Dodgers activated Graterol (conditioning) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.
Graterol is ready to make his 2021 debut after a bout with COVID-19 earlier in the spring kept him behind the rest of the Dodgers' bullpen arms during camp. The hard-throwing right-hander has since been able to regain full conditioning at the Dodgers' alternate site, and his addition to the active roster should strengthen the bridge to closer Kenley Jansen. In his first season with Los Angeles in 2020, Graterol supplied a 3.09 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 13:3 K:BB in 23.1 innings.
Graterol (conditioning) is expected to be activated off the injured list Sunday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The 22-year-old was previously expected to return Saturday, but the Dodgers will instead wait at least one more day. Graterol dealt with COVID-19 during the offseason and had a delayed start to spring training, leading to the IL stint to open the season. The right-hander is already with the team in San Diego as a member of the taxi squad.
Graterol (conditioning) is likely to be activated for Saturday's game against the Padres, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Graterol has yet to pitch in 2021 after an offseason bout with COVID-19 impacted his readiness for spring training. He has been working out at the team's alternate training site and appears to be ready to rejoin the club. The Dodgers could certainly use an additional bullpen arm after they went through six relievers during Friday's 12-inning victory over the Padres.
Graterol (conditioning) is throwing Thursday at the alternate site and will be on the taxi squad for the Dodgers' weekend series against San Diego, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Graterol was slowed to begin spring training and has been ramping up at the team's alternate site since. Assuming everything goes well with his throwing session on Thursday, it appears he will be available if needed this weekend.
Manager Dave Roberts suggested Sunday that Graterol (conditioning) could be activated from the 10-day injured list by next weekend, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Rather than because of an injury, Graterol began the season on the IL after a bout with COVID-19 earlier this year kept him behind the Dodgers' other pitchers this spring from a conditioning standpoint. Graterol appears to have avoided any snags in the build-up process over the past couple of weeks, and his 2021 debut should be imminent. Roberts said Graterol will likely pitch in simulated games at the Dodgers' alternate site in two of the next three days, and if all goes well, he could join the team for a much-anticipated series in San Diego next weekend.
Graterol (not injury related) threw a 15-pitch simulated inning Saturday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Manager Dave Roberts said "everything looked good" as the right-hander threw both his fastball and slider during the session. Roberts declined to provide an official return timeline, but Graterol could join the active roster in the near future.
Graterol (not injury related) is with the Dodgers, but it is still unclear when he'll be ready to return to game action, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Graterol was said to have been added to the 60-day injured list in early April, but that designation appears to have been an error as he is now noted as being on the 10-day IL on the team's official site. The reliever doesn't seem to be suffering from any new injury and is believed to still be recovering from an offseason bout with COVID-19. Graterol has been throwing for a few weeks, per Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times, so he may not be far off from joining the club.
Graterol, who was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday, isn't injured but is building up his arm strength after dealing with COVID-19, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
According to the report, Graterol is not expected to actually miss 60 days and will join the Dodgers bullpen once he is back to form, although there was no indication the move was back-dated. Graterol was unable to have a normal buildup this spring, but he has been throwing batting practice sessions.
Graterol (undisclosed) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.
The 22-year-old was held back throughout spring training, and he's now set to miss the first two months of the season. The official transaction wasn't accompanied by an injury designation, so the reason for the extended absence is unclear given Graterol was throwing bullpen sessions in March. Regardless, the right-hander won't be seeing major-league action until at least the start of June.
Graterol will begin the 2021 season on the injured list, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Graterol has been brought along slowly this spring after an offseason that featured inconsistent throwing. The right-hander didn't appear in any Cactus League games this year and won't be ready to pitch in time for Opening Day. It's not yet clear when Graterol will be available, but he should play a high-leverage role for the Dodgers once he's built up.
Graterol is unlikely to break camp on the major-league roster, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Graterol will not appear in any Cactus League game this spring and has yet to face any live hitters. As a result, manager Dave Roberts suggested that Graterol won't be built up enough to begin the season in the Dodgers' bullpen. When he is able to contribute, Graterol figures to occupy a high-leverage role for the team.
Graterol won't appear in a Cactus League game this spring, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The Dodgers have held Graterol back all spring, though he will face live hitters at some point according to manager Dave Roberts. Graterol's progression leaves his status for Opening Day in question, though once he is ready to take the mound he should serve as a high-leverage reliever for the team.
Graterol threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Graterol threw 25 pitches during the session, including sliders. Manager Dave Roberts was impressed with how Graterol looked Wednesday, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be ready for Opening Day. The right-hander doesn't appear to be hurt, but he has yet to face hitters this spring with just over two weeks remaining until Opening Day. Once he's ready to play during the regular season, Graterol should serve as a high-leverage reliever for the Dodgers.
Graterol has yet to throw to live hitters this spring and may not be ready for game action by Opening Day, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
The Dodgers have not indicated that Graterol is injured, and manager Dave Roberts has explained vaguely that the reliever wasn't able to throw bullpens during the offseason due to "a lot of things that took place this winter." While Graterol was initially expected to have time to ramp up by Opening Day, the fact that he still hasn't faced live hitters with just over two weeks to go casts doubt upon that outlook. Roberts was again vague about a timeline for Graterol, stating only, "I would assume that he'll take down some live hitters at some point in time." Even if he isn't ready by the start of the campaign, Graterol should fill a high-leverage role in the team's bullpen when he is able to return.
Graterol threw a bullpen session Wednesday, during which he threw only fastballs, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Graterol has been ramping up slowly this spring following an offseason that featured inconsistent throwing. Manager Dave Roberts indicated that Graterol touched 96 mph with his fastball during his first bullpen session of the spring and that he is expected to throw another one in the coming days. Assuming that plan holds, Graterol should be ready to go by Opening Day.
