The Giants placed RHP Reyes Moronta on the 10-day IL with a right flexor strain.
Moronta's velocity has been down this season and this likely explains why that was. Jake McGee remains the go-to reliever for saves in San Francisco.
Reyes Moronta, who has yet to pitch this season, is making progress in his rehab and could throw live BP as early as next week. The Giants will continue to update his status as he progresses closer to returning.
Moronta was a bright spot in the Giants pen last season with 70 strikeouts and 15 holds in 56 2/3 innings pitched. Owners in hold leagues can continue to monitor his health as he works his way back to the field.
Reyes Moronta has been throwing bullpen sessions and working back into baseball activities at the Giants alternate site in Sacramento, according to the team.
Moronta underwent shoulder surgery in September to repair a torn labrum and has experienced no setbacks in his recovery thus far. He should be ready to rejoin the Giants bullpen in late August. Moronta put up a 2.86 ERA, 1.306 WHIP, and a 70:33 K/BB ratio with a 3-7 record across 56.2 innings of relief in 2019.
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.
