RP - Baltimore Orioles
Dillon Tate faced live hitters on Monday.
Tate is continuing to recover from a forearm injury which led to him missing all of last season. He should return to his high leverage role in the Orioles bullpen behind Craig Kimbrel.
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Dillon Tate looks “unbelievable” and healthy.
Tate dealt with multiple injuries last season. He appears to be on track to being fully healthy for Spring Training. He'll look to bounce back from an injury-riddled season last year.
Dillon Tate is expected to undergo further testing in the next couple of days.
Tate is still waiting to make his season debut this year out of the Orioles bullpen. Baltimore should provide an update on his status at some point later in the week.
Orioles pitcher Dillon Tate will begin a rehab assignment on Thursday as he works his way back from a right elbow flexor strain.
Tate has yet to appear in the big leagues this season and was shut down after making 10 rehab appearances over a one-month span due to a stress reaction in his pitching elbow. The right-hander pitched to a 3.05 ERA/3.48 FIP across 67 appearances with the Orioles last season.
Dillon Tate (forearm) has been placed on the 15-day injured list.
This was an expected move to begin the season and Tate is supposed to miss most of April. With Tate and Mychal Givens both on the IL to start the season, the Orioles have Logan Gillaspie and Mike Baumann taking their spots in the bullpen. Tate should have plenty of late inning opportunities once he returns.
