Resop right elbow injury update
Chris Resop has tenderness in his right elbow and is listed as day-to-day.
The elbow injury is the reason he has not been used from the bullpen since September 16th.
MRI results showed no structural damage and the Pirates expect him to fully recover with rest.
“We want to be smart about it,” general manager Neal Huntington said. “Yes, we want to win every game we play in September, but we also want to make sure our guys finish the year healthy.”
Before the final home game on Sunday afternoon, I noticed Chris Resop throwing a side session in the bullpen. From what I saw, he seemed to have thrown about 20-25 pitches.
Resop’s side session was “pain-free” and has been cleared to pitch on Tuesday.
