  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Set for another bullpen session

    Sewald (oblique) will throw a second bullpen session Tuesday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Sewald threw 18 pitches in his bullpen session Saturday, which was his first since being placed on the 15-day IL with a Grade 2 left oblique strain. Tuesday's session should give the Diamondbacks a clearer picture on Sewald's progress and whether the right-hander is ready for a rehab assignment.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Throws bullpen session

    Sewald (oblique) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Alex Weiner of Arizona Sports reports.

    Sewald threw 18 pitches in what was his first bullpen session since being placed on the injured list in late March. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo was unsure of the next steps but believes another bullpen is likely. The club will want to see how the right-hander responds Sunday before moving forward.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Slated for mound work

    Sewald (oblique) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Saturday's bullpen session will mark Sewald's first opportunity to throw off a mound since he suffered a Grade 2 left oblique strain in late March. He will likely require additional bullpen sessions before progressing to facing live hitters and potentially a rehab assignment in the minors, but the right-hander seems to be trending toward a return in late April. Until then, Kevin Ginkel will continue serving as Arizona's closer.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Playing catch

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Sewald (oblique) played catch from 60 feet Monday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The right-hander suffered a Grade 2 oblique strain late in spring training, so the fact he's back to throwing just over a week later is an encouraging development. Sewald will need to progress to throwing long toss before moving onto bullpen sessions, so he shouldn't be expected to be activated when first eligible April 9.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Lands on 15-day IL

    The Diamondbacks placed Sewald (oblique) on the 15-day injured list Thursday.

    Sewald is eligible to return from the IL on April 9, but given that he was diagnosed earlier this week with a Grade 2 left oblique strain, he'll most likely be sidelined well beyond the 15-day minimum. In Sewald's absence, the Diamondbacks are likely to turn over closing duties to Kevin Ginkel.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Starting season on IL

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Monday that Sewald has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 left oblique strain and will start the season on the injured list, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Sewald had a productive spring training, as he allowed no runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five across six innings. It's unclear when he sustained the injury, but the right-hander will spend time on the IL to start the 2024 season. With Sewald out, Kevin Ginkel is the most likely candidate to close for the Diamondbacks in the interim.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: No runs allowed

    Sewald threw a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's spring game against Cleveland.

    It wasn't a save situation, but manager Torey Lovullo gave Sewald a taste of the closer's role by having him enter the ninth inning. He has not allowed a run in six spring outings and appears ready for the regular season. The Diamondbacks have one more Cactus League game Sunday followed by a pair of exhibition matchups Monday and Tuesday, so Sewald could get one more outing before Thursday's Opening Day against Colorado.
