  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Throwing from 120 feet

    Quijada (elbow) plans to play catch from 120 feet Monday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Quijada continues to take incremental steps forward in his recovery from Tommy John surgery May 17, but the left-hander is opening the season on the 60-day injured list and is unlikely to be ready to make his 2024 debut until the summer.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Quijada (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    The left-hander underwent Tommy John surgery last May and is poised to be sidelined for the first half of 2024, so his move to the 60-day IL is hardly a surprise. Quijada had a 3.98 ERA with three saves and 12 holds for the Angels in 2022 and could see some high-leverage chances once healthy.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Undergoes surgery

    Quijada (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery on his left elbow May 17, per MLB.com.

    An MRI and multiple doctors' opinions in early May determined that Quijada needed the season-ending procedure. The lefty reliever is slated to miss about 12 months, so he could return around the middle of 2024. Quijada recorded four saves and five holds while posting a 6.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over 10 appearances prior to going down with the injury.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Quijada (elbow) was transferred from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list by the Angels on Monday.

    It's a procedural move that clears room on the 40-man roster, and the Angels needed it to selected the contract of Cesar Valdez on Monday. Quijada will miss the rest of the 2023 season after it was revealed that the left-hander will need to undergo Tommy John surgery on his left elbow.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Ligament damage found in MRI

    Angels manager Phil Nevin said Tuesday that an MRI on Quijada's left elbow reviewed some ligament damage, but the southpaw will receive a second opinion before it will be determined whether he'll need to have surgery, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.

    Nevin called the first opinion that Quijada received "discouraging," based on the report provided by doctors. Quijada will get the second opinion before an announcement is made regarding the severity of the injury and whether it will require surgery. Even if a procedure isn't deemed necessary, the 27-year-old appears likely to be sidelined beyond the minimum 15 days.

  • Angels' Jose Quijada: Will undergo Tommy John surgery

    Quijada sought a second opinion from doctors, and it appears that both groups recommended the reconstructive elbow surgery. The left-handed reliever will miss the rest of the 2023 campaign and he'll likely miss time to begin the 2024 season as well.
