Walker Buehler Making Progress?

Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler (hip) remains at Cressey Sports Performance in Florida and is throwing bullpens and working on his mechanics. "I can say there's progress," Dave Roberts said on Wednesday. "But I really can't even speak intelligently what that progress is. I really can't." Buehler made his return from Tommy John surgery in 2024, but the results weren't pretty, as the 29-year-old went 1-4 with a 5.84 ERA (6.06 FIP) and 1.51 WHIP with 31 K's and 10 walks in 37 innings in his eight starts. LA placed him on the 15-day injured list on June 19 with right-hip inflammation as a way for him to take a step back and work on his mechanics. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to return to his pre-injury dominance, and there's currently no timetable for his return to the Dodgers' starting rotation in the second half of the season.

No Clear Return Plan For Walker Buehler

Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler's hip no longer appears to be bothering him, but there's no clear plan for his return from the 15-day injured list. Manager Dave Roberts said Buehler is throwing and has been working "offsite," both in Arizona and at a private facility in Florida, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. "He's doing a little bit of everything," Roberts said. Buehler returned from a second Tommy John procedure on his right elbow and had an up-and-down eight starts with the Blue before being put on the injured list with a hip injury. He posted a 5.84 ERA in his eight starts, and there are real questions about how effective his fastball will be moving forward after going under the knife again. Buehler probably won't be an option to return to LA's rotation until the second half of the season.

Dodgers Still Deciding Walker Buehler's Next Steps

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said ahead of Friday's series opener against the crosstown-rival Los Angeles Angels that the club is still deciding what starting pitcher Walker Buehler's (hip) process on the injured list is going to look like. Roberts mentioned that the extra weight and strength Buehler put on this offseason might be impacting his mechanics. Buehler took a comebacker during Tuesday's start at Coors Field against the division-rival Colorado Rockies, and the Dodgers decided they had seen enough after the hurler gave up a season-worst seven runs by sending him to the IL with right hip inflammation on Wednesday. Buehler owns a rough 5.84 ERA (6.04 FIP), 1.51 WHIP, and 31:10 K:BB over eight starts (37 innings), and he may end up spending a considerable amount of time back in the minors on assignment to sharpen up his mechanics. There's a chance we won't see him again until after July's All-Star break.
