  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Avoids arbitration with L.A.

    Buehler (elbow) and the Dodgers agreed on a one-year, $8.025 million contract Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Buehler and the team will avoid the arbitration headache after they were able to finalize a deal Friday. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery in August and may not pitch in 2023 as a result. Prior to injuring his elbow, Buehler produced an uncharacteristic 4.02 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 58 strikeouts over 65 innings in 12 starts last season.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Needs second Tommy John surgery

    Buehler (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery and flexor tendon repair surgery Tuesday.

    Buehler had Tommy John surgery the year he was drafted (2015), so this is his second go-round with the procedure. Given the timing of the surgery and the fact that he has a lot riding on his recovery going smoothly, it's possible he won't pitch in games until the 2024 season.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Requires season-ending surgery

    Buehler will undergo season-ending elbow surgery Aug. 23.

    Buehler sustained a Grade 2 flexor strain in his right elbow June 10 and spent the last two months recovering. Although the Dodgers hoped that the right-hander would be able to return sometime in September, he'll ultimately be forced to miss the remainder of the season. The exact nature of the procedure, which will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, isn't yet known, so it's unclear whether Buehler will be ready to pitch in time for spring training in 2023.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Small step forward

    Buehler (elbow) played catch Monday.

    Buehler made 20 throws during the session, his first action since sustaining a Grade 2 flexor strain in his right elbow June 10. The right-hander is still a long way from a potential return, but Monday's action is the first step toward joining the Dodgers' rotation at some point later this season.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: To resume throwing

    Buehler (elbow) will play light catch Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The activity will mark Buehler's first since being placed on the injured list June 11. He remains optimistic that he'll be able to return to the Dodgers' rotation in mid-to-late September, though he isn't set for another MRI until 12 weeks post-injury -- which would be in early September. Any appearances he makes during the regular season would likely only be to build up his workload for a potential postseason run.

  • Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Optimism for September return

    The Dodgers remain optimistic that Buehler (elbow) will return as a starter in September, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Manager Dave Roberts noted that Buehler has made progress and is "cautiously optimistic" the right-hander can return as a starter this season. There is no more specific timetable available, and Buehler has yet to undergo any follow-up imaging on his elbow since being diagnosed with the flexor strain in mid-June.
