Reyes Moronta (shoulder) is throwing fastballs off a mound and could return by late August.
Moronta underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum on his right shoulder in September. He owned a 2.86 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and a 70:33 K:BB across 56 2/3 innings in 2019. Moronta is on track in his recovery and is expected to return in August.
Reyes Moronta received the loss after allowing four runs on two hits in only a third of an inning Tuesday against the Rockies.
He did have a chance to record a hold, but instead gave up the lead. Moronta has pitched well despite Tuesday, but is not a fantasy option as a middle reliever.
Reyes Moronta is becoming one of Bruce Bochy's most dependable middle relievers. Friday, he lowered his ERA to 0.82 with two solid shutout innings.
Moronta could only be useful if you're in a league counting holds.
