VIDEO: #Dbacks reliever Matt Reynolds throws for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last September: http://t.co/xE9OZ6nVrHReynolds went on the 60-day disabled list on June 10 due to a sprained UCL ligament in his left elbow and ended up needing the surgery in September. He is currently one of twenty-two players still recovering from Tommy John surgery, and he is expected back late in the season.

Reynolds was 0-2 with a 3.58 ERA, 2 saves, and a 1.098 WHIP in 30 relief appearances before his injury, the only one of his four-year career so far. Overall, he is 5-5, 3.58 ERA, 2 saves, and 1.259 WHIP in 195 appearances, all in relief. In 2013, he was better against right-handed hitters, holding them to a .226 average as opposed to a .262 average the left-handed hitters had off him.
According to White, the Diamondbacks hope to have Reynolds back for the end of the season to get him some work, but they could also have him wait until 2015 to avoid extra strain on his elbow too early.
