  • Mets' Sam Coonrod: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Coonrod (lat) was transferred Thursday from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list.

    The move clears out a 40-man roster spot for the Mets' waiver claim of Edwin Uceta from the Pirates. Coonrod will be sidelined until at least early June as he recovers from a high-grade lat strain.

  • Mets' Sam Coonrod: Moves to injured list

    Coonrod (lat) was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to March 27.

    Coonrod was diagnosed with a high-grade lat strain two weeks ago, so it's no surprise he's beginning the season on the shelf. The right-hander doesn't have an official timeline for his return, but he shouldn't be expected to be available for the Mets anytime soon.

  • Mets' Sam Coonrod: Nursing high-grade lat strain

    The Mets announced Wednesday that Coonrod has been diagnosed with a high-grade right lat strain, Abbey Mastracco of the New York Daily News reports.

    The team hasn't provided a timetable, but the injury is one that could conceivably keep Coonrod sidelined for months. The right-hander had been pitching well this spring and seemed to have a good shot to win a spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen, but his expected extended absence creates an opening for another arm.

  • Mets' Sam Coonrod: Claimed by NYM off waivers

    The Mets claimed Coonrod off waivers Monday from the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Coonrod was designated for assignment Jan. 30 after the Phillies completed the signing of Josh Harrison. The right-hander made 12 appearances for Philadelphia in 2022 with a 7.82 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 12.2 innings. He'll compete for one of the final spots in the Mets' bullpen during spring training.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Moved off 40-man roster

    Philadelphia designated Coonrod for assignment Monday.

    The transaction clears room on the 40-man roster for infielder Josh Harrison, who was signed to a one-year, $2 million deal. Coonrod was ineffective in 12 appearances with Philadelphia in 2022, recording a 7.82 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 12.2 innings. If he clears waivers, the 30-year-old will be outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley if he opts not to elect free agency.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Agrees to deal with Phillies

    Coonrod avoided arbitration by signing a one-year, $775,000 deal with the Phillies on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Coonrod turned in a 7.82 ERA and 1.50 WHIP through 12.2 innings last season upon returning from a stint on the IL in mid-August. It's possible the 30-year-old righty could find his way back into the Phillies' bullpen after the team ranked 23rd in bullpen ERA last season (4.27), but he would likely need to show significant signs of improvement in order to do so.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Moves to minors

    The Phillies optioned Coonrod to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

    Coonrod's demotion clears a spot on the 28-man active roster for right-hander Zack Wheeler (forearm), who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Since returning to the Phillies in mid-August following an IL stint of his own, Coonrod turned in a 7.82 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 12:7 K:BB in 12.2 innings across 12 appearances out of the Philadelphia bullpen.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Reinstated from IL

    Coonrod (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Coonrod will return to the Phillies' bullpen after suffering a shoulder strain in March and missing the entirety of the season to this point. The right-hander produced a 4.04 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 48 strikeouts over 42.1 innings in 42 appearances with Philadelphia last year. He will replace Corey Knebel (lat) on the active roster after Knebel was placed on the 15-day IL Monday.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Starts up rehab assignment

    Coonrod (shoulder) began a rehab assignment Friday with Single-A Clearwater and struck out four over two scoreless frames between his first two appearances.

    Coonrod could shift his rehab assignment to a higher-level affiliate at some point this week. The 29-year-old right-hander is still waiting to make his 2022 debut for the Phillies after he was placed on the injured list coming out of spring training due to a right shoulder strain.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Set for bullpen session

    Coonrod (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Coonrod was diagnosed with a shoulder strain in late March and has yet to appear in a game this season. He'll likely throw several bullpen sessions before going out on a rehab assignment, so he may not return until mid-July.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Moves to 60-day IL

    Coonrod (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Coonrod has been dealing with a shoulder strain since late March, but he recently increased his throwing distance to 90 feet. However, he'll be unavailable until at least early June after being transferred to the 60-day IL. The move makes room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Andrew Bellatti, whose contract was selected Thursday.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Increasing throwing distance

    Coonrod (shoulder) is throwing from up to 90 feet, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Coonrod suffered the injury late in spring training, and he was shut down entirely for a week. However, he's begun his throwing progression, which is a positive sign in his recovery. He'll look to continue to ramp up the intensity of his work and could be in line for a return by late April.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Officially placed on IL

    Coonrod (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Coonrod sustained a shoulder strain in late March and has been shut down from throwing. A timetable for his return is unlikely to be known until he begins a throwing program.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Lands on injured list

    Coonrod (shoulder) will open the season on the injured list, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Coonrod was diagnosed with a shoulder strain in late March and shut down from throwing. His expected return timeline is not yet clear.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Out with shoulder strain

    Phillies manager Joe Girardi said Monday that Coonrod is dealing with a strained right shoulder and won't be available for the start of the regular season, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

    Coonrod picked up the injury following his second Grapefruit League appearance last Wednesday, with the Phillies sending him in for an MRI before the shoulder strain was confirmed. He'll be shut down from throwing for the next 5-to-7 days before the Phillies decide his next steps, but even if Coonrod gets the green light to resume workouts by next week, he won't have sufficient time to get himself ready for Opening Day. When healthy, Coonrod is expected to fill a middle-relief role following a 2021 campaign in which he posted a 4.04 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 42.1 innings while collecting nine holds and two saves.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Shakes off thumb injury

    Coonrod (thumb) made back-to-back appearances out of the Philadelphia bullpen Wednesday and Thursday against Atlanta, covering 1.1 innings while striking out two.

    The first of the two appearances marked Coonrod's first game action since Sept. 22, as the Phillies had stayed away for him for about a week while he dealt with a right thumb injury. The 29-year-old owns a 4.04 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 42.1 innings on the season.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Battling thumb problem

    Coonrod is dealing with a thumb injury but will avoid the injured list for now, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Coonrad has allowed runs in three of his last five appearances and hasn't pitched since Wednesday, though it's not clear if either of those facts is related to his thumb issue. With less than 10 days remaining in regular season, any trip to the injured list would bring his campaign to an end.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Clean inning as opener

    Coonrod struck out one in a perfect inning during Friday's 11-2 loss to Colorado.

    The right-hander was one of two Philadelphia pitchers, along with Cam Bedrosian, to keep runs off the board. Coonrod has been a steady presence this year with a 3.75 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 42:12 K:BB across 36 innings. He's logged a 2-2 record, two saves, eight holds and three blown saves. Since he returned from forearm tendinitis, he's allowed two runs on five hits, two walks and two hit batters while racking up 12 strikeouts in eight innings.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Opening Friday's game

    Coonrod is scheduled to serve as the Phillies' opening pitcher for Friday's game against the Rockies in Philadelphia.

    For the second time in less than week, Coonrod will work as an opener for the Phillies. He covered 1.1 innings in his previous "start" against the Marlins on Sept. 5, striking out three while giving up one run on one hit and one walk. He's not expected to cover more than two innings Friday before the Phillies turn the game over to the bullpen.

  • Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Lasts 1.1 innings as opener

    Coonrod didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Marlins after allowing one run on one hit and one walk while fanning three across 1.1 innings. He also hit a batter.

    Coonrod got the nod as the opener for Sunday's bullpen game, but as it has been the trend all season long, he didn't go deep and was removed with two outs to go in the second inning. He has allowed runs in two of his last five appearances since returning to the big-league roster and owns a 3.00 ERA -- though with an excellent 12.0 K/9 -- through six innings in that span.
