Top Brusdar Graterol News

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Bullpen session on tap

    Graterol (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session this week in Arizona, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    As Plunkett notes, this is the first positive news regarding Graterol in a while, as he has been out all season due to right shoulder inflammation/pain. The hard-throwing righty would likely need to throw several bullpen sessions before advancing to face live hitters.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Months away from return

    Graterol (shoulder) hasn't yet resumed playing catch and is likely at least two months away from being able to return to the Dodgers' bullpen, per MLB.com.

    Graterol landed on the IL with right shoulder inflammation prior to the Dodgers' season-opening series in South Korea. The righty reliever began a throwing progression in mid-April, but that was stopped after about a week due to continued soreness. Manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that Graterol hasn't yet resumed playing catch and added, "In the context of spring training, if you're not even playing catch, you're at least a couple months away."

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Stops throwing program

    Graterol (shoulder) has stopped his throwing program due to his arm remaining sore and manager Dave Roberts stated Wednesday, "It's going to be a long program" to get him back, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Graterol threw a bullpen session last week and appeared to be trending well in his recovery, but his rehab program will now be put on pause. The right-hander may now have a difficult time returning from the 60-day injured list when first eligible May 18.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Begins throwing progression

    Manager Dave Roberts said that Graterol (shoulder) threw a "good" bullpen session Monday, MLB.com reports.

    Graterol won't be available until around mid-May after the Dodgers initially placed him on the 15-day injured list March 19 before later transferring him to the 60-day IL, but the fact that the right-hander is already in the midst of a throwing progression suggests he should be ready to go around the time he's first eligible to return. He'll likely continue the ramp-up process with multiple bullpen sessions and live batting practice sessions over the next couple of weeks before perhaps heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment later this month or in early May.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Dodgers transferred Graterol (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Graterol's move to the 60-day IL clears a spot on the Dodgers' 40-man roster for Nick Ramirez, who was acquired from the Yankees on Tuesday. Graterol was cleared to throw off a mound Tuesday -- the first time he's done so since landing on the IL with right shoulder inflammation. The 25-year-old right-hander is now eligible to return beginning May 18, but it remains to be seen whether or not he'll be ready by then.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Cleared for mound work

    Graterol (shoulder) will throw off a mound Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Graterol continues to make progress in his recovery from right shoulder inflammation, and he's in line to take another important step Tuesday. The team will likely re-evaluate the right-hander Wednesday to ensure he bounces back from his throwing session before determining his next hurdle.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Throws from 150 feet

    Graterol (shoulder) threw long toss with Blake Treinen (lung) on Saturday from roughly 150 feet, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Manager Dave Roberts noted Thursday that Graterol still has a long way to go before being ready to return to the Dodgers' bullpen, but seeing him throw again is certainly an encouraging sign. The 25-year-old right-hander has been dealing with shoulder inflammation since early March and will need to continue progressing through his throwing program before a return timeline can emerge.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Not close to returning

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Graterol (shoulder) is "a ways away" from a return, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Graterol landed on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation prior to the team's series against the Padres in South Korea. It would appear his absence could be an extended one, although Roberts didn't offer up much specificity.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Placed on IL

    The Dodgers placed Graterol on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation.

    It had already been announced that Graterol wouldn't be available for Los Angeles' series against the Padres in South Korea, so it's unsurprising to see the 25-year-old begin the year on the IL. Barring a setback in his recovery, Graterol should be able to rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen when eligible in early April.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Unavailable for South Korea series

    Graterol is dealing with shoulder discomfort and hip tightness and won't travel to South Korea with the Dodgers for the season-opening series against the Padres on March 20 and 21, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Graterol has made just one game appearance thus far during spring training and is expected to resume throwing Tuesday, so he won't be ready with the season-opening international series a little more than a week away. The right-hander still hopes to be ready for the first stateside game of the season March 28, but it's a tight timeline for him to be built up in time.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Settles with Dodgers

    Graterol signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Dodgers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Graterol is in his second year of arbitration and doubled his salary from 2023. He posted a career-high 67.1 innings last season and maintained a 1.20 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with a 48:12 K:BB across 67.1 innings. Graterol could enter the closer picture in 2024, though Evan Phillips will open the year as the favorite for save chances.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Grabs seventh save

    Graterol allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one over a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 3-1 win over Atlanta.

    Graterol allowed multiple baserunners for the third time in his last six outings, but he was able to extend his scoreless streak to 16.1 innings. Both Graterol and Evan Phillips pitched Saturday, so this appears to be a managerial choice from Dave Roberts to give Graterol the ninth inning in this contest. The right-hander has a 1.38 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB with seven saves and 17 holds through 58.2 innings this year while operating as part of the Dodgers' successful high-leverage mix.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Secures 17th hold

    Graterol earned a hold over the Red Sox on Friday, allowing two hits and striking out two batters over 1.2 scoreless innings.

    Graterol has picked up two saves since Aug. 10, but he remains a secondary closing option for Los Angeles behind Evan Phillips. Graterol has emerged as a shutdown high-leverage weapon for manager Dave Roberts, racking up 12 straight scoreless appearances and yielding just one run over 25.2 innings since June 21. The fireballing right-hander has just 17 strikeouts during that span, but he's posted a 0.90 WHIP and notched two wins, three saves and 10 holds. Phillips has also been solid and is in no danger of losing his closing job, so Graterol's fantasy value is mostly limited to leagues that count holds, though he could pick up a few more saves down the stretch.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Nabs sixth save

    Graterol allowed two hits in a scoreless inning to earn the save in a 3-1 win over the Marlins in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Evan Phillips was called on for a save in the matinee, allowing Graterol a chance to close out the nightcap. This was Graterol's 10th straight scoreless outing, and he's allowed just one run across 19 innings dating back to June 27. The right-hander also has two saves in his last four appearances after going six weeks between save chances. For the season, Graterol has six saves, 16 holds, a 1.53 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB through 53 innings as a strong late-inning presence, though Phillips is still the favorite to close for the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Grabs save Thursday

    Graterol earned a save against the Rockies on Thursday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning.

    Evan Phillips has emerged as the Dodgers' primary closer this season, but he wasn't deployed Thursday after pitching each of the previous two days. Manager Dave Roberts instead turned to Graterol to close things out with Los Angeles clinging to a one-run ninth-inning lead, and the right-hander did so with ease, retiring the side in order on 13 pitches. Graterol has been outstanding as mostly a setup man this season, posting a 1.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 37:9 K:BB over 50 frames while collecting 14 holds and five saves.
