Injury Moves and Notes: July 20th

Think you're missing out on those little nuggets of injury information? Make sure you don't by reading our notes.


Chicago White Sox: transferred RHP Felipe Paulino to the 60-day DL. Paulino's rehab assignment was halted at the end of May as the rotator cuff issues which sent him to the DL had not disappeared and he has not made an appearance since. Paulino's horrendous 9.61 ERA and 2.29 WHIP in the minors was actually better than his record after his four major league starts this year, so something clearly isn't right for the 30-year-old.

Cincinnati Reds: activated INF/OF Skip Schumaker from the concussion DL. Schumaker went on the 7-day DL just before the break after a collision with the outfield wall.


Toronto Blue Jays closer Casey Janssen was unavailable on Saturday night because of a bout of food poisoning. Janssen declared himself good to go by Sunday morning.

Progress report

Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg is back to throwing off a mound and the team is still hoping for a return before the end of 2014.

Seattle Mariners duo James Paxton and Danny Hultzen are both taking positive steps: the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Paxton is pain-free and hoping to ramp up his pitch count to 75 by his July 27th rehab start, while Hultzen, recovering from October 2013 shoulder surgery, is throwing at around 75% and on course to make a competitive return in the Arizona Fall League.

Jonny Venters of the Atlanta Braves has thrown for three consecutive days as he continues his long recovery from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander was delayed in his comeback attempt by a June setback and said he would not be progressing to rehab for at least another couple of weeks.

Rehab roundup

San Diego Padres reliever Joe Wieland started for the team's Arizona league Rookie team and pitched a scoreless inning, with one strikeout, to begin his assignment.

Former Milwaukee Brewers closer Jim Henderson was moved to Triple A Nashville and worked a scoreless inning with one walk.'s Adam McCalvy reported that the move was partly made due to persistent rain at the team's Double A club, as well as the team's desire to ensure Henderson was fully healthy and ready to pitch before a return.

Washington Nationals outfielder Eury Perez was sent to Triple A Syracuse and went 1-3 as the leadoff hitter. Perez is recovering from a broken foot sustained when he fouled a ball off it.
