Daniel Hudson, Matt Reynolds not expected back until Sept.


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said pitchers Daniel Hudson and Matt Reynolds are in different stages of their recoveries from Tommy John surgery, per MLB.com. While both pitchers are throwing, neither is expected back until September.

"Well, basically Daniel is just starting to throw again," Gibson said. "He just went through a period where they shut him down again. He'll start throwing aggressively this time through the cycle.

"Reynolds just got off that cycle and he threw a bullpen yesterday. We're probably optimistically looking at September. Hopefully they can throw some in September, just enough to know they'll be good. We'll shut them down again after the season."


Matt Reynolds throws off mound for first time since surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Matt Reynolds threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in September, per MLB.com.

"He looks good, he looks strong, he looks comfortable on the mound," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "Feels good about it. He looks good, his mechanics are good. I think they cleaned it up a little bit, made it a little shorter, made it a little less rotational, tried to get him to be more online."

The Diamondbacks are hopeful Reynolds will be able to pitch in a few major-league games this season.

"If you give them something out of the 'pen this year some time, it really builds for next year," Gibson said.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

If Reynolds doesn't suffer any setbacks with his recovery, it's possible he could pitch with Arizona late in the 2014 season. However, the team will likely take it slow with his elbow and hope to have him ready to go by spring training 2015.

You try to keep focused and understand that the final goal is to be back on the field, and that's what I'm working towards. These are my guys, and I want to go out there and battle with them."


Matt Reynolds to avoid surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2013) The Diamondbacks hope reliever Matt Reynolds' torn left UCL will be able to heal without needing surgery, after a six-week rehab process.

Reynolds received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed the slight tear in his left elbow should heal without requiring Tommy John surgery.

"From what I understand, it's in a good spot," Reynolds told MLB.com. "And hopefully I can just wait around, rehab it for a little while and be good as new."

Initially, Reynolds was not too concerned about the pain his pitching arm, having never dealt with arm trouble before.

"I had been getting some treatment on it," Reynolds said. "It felt a little achy and was getting some treatment and felt it was almost out of there, and then it started coming back a little bit."


Second MRI confirms UCL tear for Matt Reynolds


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2013) Diamondbacks reliever Matt Reynolds underwent a second MRI, which confirmed the previous diagnosis of a slight tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. He is expected to be shut down for the next four to six weeks to allow his injury to heal.

Manager Kirk Gibson told MLB.com Friday that it could take another month of rehab for him to work his way back to the club. He posted a 1.98 ERA in 27 1/3 innings of work this season prior to the injury.

Matt Reynolds dealing with slight UCL tear


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2013) Diamondbacks reliever Matt Reynolds will be shut down for six weeks, after he was diagnosed with a slight UCL tear Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

Reynolds is set to get a second opinion on the elbow, but the initial diagnosis calls for him to rest for six weeks while the injury heals, before beginning a throwing program. This timeline likely puts him out of action until at least August, assuming a rehab program that requires a handful of appearances in the minors.

Reynolds has a 1.98 ERA in 27 1/3 innings of work this season prior to the injury.


Matt Reynolds hits the DL with elbow injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2013) The Diamondbacks placed reliever Matt Reynolds on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a strained left elbow.

Reynolds had allowed three runs on two home runs in his previous two outings. It is unclear how long he is expected to miss with this injury. 


Another road block in Matt Reynolds' way


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2013) Diamondbacks reliever Matt Reynolds has yet to allow a run this season and has been called on for two saves, but the team does not appear to be turning his way with J.J. Putz on the disabled list. Heath Bell looks likely to get the call in the ninth inning moving forward.

Reynolds has been added in plenty of leagues for speculative purposes, but it looks like the team is not yet ready to begin a relative youth movement in the ninth inning. Despite Bell's struggles over the last two seasons, he does carry an All-Star pedigree and big paycheck that is easier to justify in the ninth inning.

Reynolds and fellow reliever David Hernandez both look to have brighter futures than Bell, but he team's emphasis on experience makes at least a little sense. I would not give up on the idea that either Reynolds or Hernandez can make a big impact for Fantasy owners down the line, but I would also not make the decision to add either right now. Keep an eye on Bell's next few outings to see how he handles being thrust into a high-pressure role again, and be ready to pounce if the Diamondbacks sour on him. 


Keep an eye on Matt Reynolds -- again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2013) Matt Reynolds and David Hernandez ended Tuesday night as two of the five most-viewed players in CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues. That's because Diamondbacks' closer J.J. Putz's struggles to close games continued, as he blew his major-league leading fourth save.

Reynolds was called on to bail Putz out, and it will be interesting to see if the team opts to turn to him instead of Putz moving forward. Reynolds has yet to allow a run in 13 innings, and he has two savesin two chances.

Fantasy owners who are fishing for saves on the waiver wire will definitely want to keep an eye on the Diamondbacks' ninth-inning situation in the next few days to see if the team chooses to make a change. If Reynolds ultimately gets the call for saves, he would be worth snagging in many Fantasy formats. 


Matt Reynolds needed for save again


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) After earning the save during extra innings the night before, Matt Reynolds was called upon for a save opportunity again by the Diamondbacks in Wednesday's series finale against the Giants.

The left-hander entered in the 10th inning with a one-run lead and worked his way around a two-out double to make it through the frame unscathed. He also struck out one in a 3-2 win.

Matt Reynolds earns first career save


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2013) Diamondbacks reliever Matt Reynolds picked up the first save of his career on Tuesday night against the Giants. He entered in the 11th inning with a two-run lead and gave up a leadoff single. The left-hander was able to erase the runner with a double-play ball, however, and made it though the frame scoreless to secure a 6-4 win.

Reynolds has yet to allow a run through nine appearances.

Kirk Gibson outlines roles for lefty relievers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) The Diamondbacks debuted both of their new left-handed relievers -- Matt Reynolds and Tony Sipp -- during Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Manager Kirk Gibson said the arraignment early in the season could be for Reynolds to pitch multiple innings and Sipp to hold the role as lefty specialist, according to The Arizona Republic.

"Over the course of the year, maybe Reynolds would throw more extended periods," Gibson said. "He’d be a guy we’d not hesitate to stretch out to two innings. Sipp maybe not as much. That’s the way I see it now. It could change."
