  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Throwing simulated game Wednesday

    Musgrove (toe) is throwing a simulated game Wednesday in Padres camp, Bob Scanlan of Bally Sports San Diego reports.

    Musgrove will be facing non-swinging hitters, but it's another step in the right direction as he recovers from a fractured left big toe. The standing belief is that Musgrove could be ready to join the Padres' starting rotation April 6 at Atlanta. If he does meet that timeline, he'll prove to be a terrific value in fantasy drafts that have taken place over the last handful of weeks. Musgrove suffered the injury in a weight room incident Feb. 27.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Throws bullpen session

    Musgrove (toe) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Musgrove broke his left big toe at the end of February and was originally expected to be shut down from throwing for at least two weeks. He's ahead of schedule, however, as he resumed throwing on flat ground Wednesday and is now throwing bullpens three days later. Per Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune, he's targeting a season debut against Atlanta on April 6. Whether or not he can hit that aggressive timetable is not yet clear.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Resumes throwing

    Musgrove (toe) threw on flat ground Wednesday, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Musgrove didn't land on his left foot in order to protect his fractured big toe. He has been able to put some weight on the toe, however, and said he didn't feel any discomfort while doing so. Musgrove has been spending time in a hyperbaric chamber every day since suffering the injury in an attempt to speed up the recovery process. The initial projection has Musgrove missing at least his first two regular-season starts.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Taking steps to shorten absence

    Musgrove has been lying in a hyperbaric chamber every day in an attempt to recover more quickly from his fractured left big toe, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Tribune reports.

    The idea behind the treatment is that the pressurized chamber may help Musgrove's body create stem cells to promote healing, and the hurler has also been sticking to a special diet aimed at aiding in his recovery. There's certainly no guarantee that the measures will speed up Musgrove's return to the mound, but the right-hander explained that he's willing to "try anything...even if it knocks a day or two off." While the pitcher's determination is certainly admirable, fantasy managers shouldn't count on it resulting in an adjustment to the initial projection of him missing about two starts. Musgrove acknowledged the need to be wise about rushing back too quickly, stating, "I know that I gotta build up and they're gonna do it the right way -- missing a start or two now to not have to deal with it for the rest of year."

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Will miss at least two starts

    Musgrove (toe) is expected to miss at least two regular-season starts, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Musgrove will be shut down from throwing for at least two weeks after fracturing his left big toe when he dropped a kettle ball on his foot while working out. When exactly he'll be ready to rejoin the Padres' rotation seems like an open-ended question, as he'll surely need additional X-rays to see how the bone is healing. The Padres had been leaning toward going with a six-man rotation at the start of the season, but those plans are now up in the air.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Won't throw for at least two weeks

    Padres manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that Musgrove (toe) won't be able to resume throwing for a minimum of two weeks, AJ Cassavell of reports.

    Musgrove suffered a left big toe fracture during a weight room mishap Monday. He's going to work with the Padres' training staff to keep his arm strong throughout the healing process, but the toe injury is obviously a significant setback that will make it difficult for him to be ready for the start of the regular season. He'll almost certainly be placed on the 15-day injured list ahead of Opening Day and could wind up missing most -- or all -- of the first month of meaningful games.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Fractures toe in weight room mishap

    Musgrove suffered a fractured left big toe during a weight room incident Monday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    A timeline for Musgrove's return isn't known yet, but this will certainly lead to him beginning the season on the injured list. It's obviously a big blow to the Padres and to fantasy managers who have used a pick on Musgrove in early drafts. San Diego had been slated to start the season with a six-man rotation and still conceivably could, although it's possible this news might change its plans.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Tosses bullpen despite oral surgery

    Musgrove had four wisdom teeth removed Tuesday but still threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The tooth extractions apparently went smoothly given Musgrove's ability to stay on schedule with his bullpen session the following day. The right-hander also received a platelet-rich plasma injection to treat a lingering left knee issue in the offseason, per Acee, but the hurler appears to be healthy as he prepares to take up the No. 2 spot in San Diego's rotation behind Yu Darvish.
