Delgado (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado appeared in 26 games for Arizona this past season, but didn't pitch after July 15 due to an injured right elbow. Just over a month ago, the right-hander received a platelet-rich plasma injection on the elbow, and it's expected that he will be fully recovered by the time the new year rolls around.

Delgado will receive a PRP procedure on his injured right elbow Thursday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado is dealing with a flexor strain and will undergo a PRP injection to help combat the injury. It's unlikely that Delgado will return to pitch this season, so he'll head into the offseason with a solid 3.59 ERA over 62.2 innings with the Diamondbacks this year.

Delgado recently saw Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed that the right-hander has a flexor strain, Jack Magruder of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Diamondbacks have not formally ruled Delgado out for the year, he was recently moved to the 60-day DL and it seems like a near certainty that he won't pitch again until 2018. Assuming he's healthy, Delgado will be in good position to earn a long-relief role in spring training after posting a 3.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 62.2 innings this season.

Delgado (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Due to the amount of time he's missed, moving Delgado to the 60-day disabled list doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility of him returning this season. Delgado is going to meet with Dr. James Andrews to receive a second opinion on what has been diagnosed as a flexor strain, so more information regarding his status should be known soon.

Delgado (elbow) will meet with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion in the coming days after an MRI reveal that the right-hander was dealing with a flexor strain, Jarrid Denney of MLB.com reports. "[Delgado] is being shut down for the short term," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. "With a chance of that being longer, for the season."

EDGE Analysis

It's the same injury that resulted in Delgado's placement on the 10-day disabled list back in mid-July, and since he's already taken nearly two months to rehab the flexor strain, it's quite likely that this latest setback will spell an end to his season. Flexor strains are often a precursor to Tommy John surgery, so the meeting with Andrews could portend even grimmer news for Delgado, who had been in the midst of a strong season as a middle reliever and occasional spot starter. The 27-year-old has produced a 3.59 ERA and 60:14 K:BB in 62.2 innings.

The Diamondbacks had Delgado (elbow) undergo an MRI on Friday after he experienced stiffness following his rehab appearance Wednesday with short-season Hillsboro, Kaelen Jones of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado tossed a scoreless inning during the outing, but with his elbow acting up again, the Diamondbacks decided to send the pitcher in for more scans. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said he's uncertain yet whether Delgado is dealing with a setback with his right flexor, which has kept him unavailable since July 18. Either way, the Diamondbacks' decision to temporarily halt the right-hander's rehab assignment isn't a positive development for his hopes of returning to the mound before the end of the season.

Delgado (elbow) is expected to throw a simulated game Saturday, Matt Layman of ArizonaSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado has been sidelined since July with a right elbow strain, but has been gradually cranking up the intensity of his throwing program and resumed pitching off a mound a little less than a week ago. If the simulated game goes without a hitch, Delgado would likely head out on a rehab assignment with one of the Diamondbacks' minor-league affiliates before rejoining the big club later in September.

Delgado (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said that Delgado, who has been sidelined since mid-July with right elbow inflammation, checked out fine during the session. Delgado is expected to throw off the mound again Tuesday and and test out more breaking pitches after previously being limited to mostly fastballs. The 27-year-old will then advance to facing hitters before heading out on a rehab assignment in the minors.

Delgado (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Delgado had been throwing off flat ground for the past two weeks, and after incurring no setbacks with his strained right elbow while doing so, he'll move on to the next phase of his rehab. Because he's been sidelined since mid-July with the injury, Delgado will likely require a rehab assignment in the minors before being activated from the 10-day disabled list in September.

Delgado (elbow) has advanced his throwing distance off flat ground from 90 to 120 feet, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Delgado is progressing, the rehab process from a right elbow strain has been a painfully slow one. He's inching gradually closer to resuming mound work, but given the current pace of his recovery, it's looking increasingly unlikely that he'll rejoin the Diamondbacks before the end of the month.
