Chris Withrow (elbow) is not expected to pitch this season.

Withrow, who was acquired from the Dodgers in the Alberto Callaspo-Juan Uribe deal, had Tommy John surgery last June and back surgery over the winter. He's making progress, but won't be a factor for the Braves until 2016.
Aug 18 - 12:26 PM

Braves acquired RHP Chris Withrow and 3B Juan Uribe from the Dodgers for INF Alberto Callaspo, LHP Eric Stults, LHP Ian Thomas, and RHP Juan Jaime.

Withrow underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last June and probably won't become an option for the Braves' bullpen until after the All-Star break. The 26-year-old right-hander had posted a promising 2.73 ERA, 1.089 WHIP, and 71 strikeouts in 56 career major league innings before tearing his right ulnar collateral ligament. He could be a nice find for Atlanta if he makes a full recovery.
May 27 - 4:56 PM

Dodgers placed RHP Chris Withrow on the 60-day disabled list.

This is nothing more than a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Beachy who was signed on Saturday. Withrow is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected back until around midseason.
Feb 21 - 1:44 PM

Chris Withrow had surgery last week to repair a herniated disk in his lower back.

Withrow has dealt with chronic back problems during his career and decided to get the issue addressed. He's currently in rehab mode from Tommy John surgery this past June, so it shouldn't delay his return to the mound. He's unlikely to contribute until around midseason next year.

Dodgers transferred RHP Chris Withrow from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Miguel Rojas. Withrow is out for the season following Tommy John surgery.

Chris Withrow will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday in Pensacola, Florida.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews. The team announced last Thursday that Withrow was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, so Tommy John surgery was considered an inevitability. The 25-year-old owns a 2.73 ERA and 71 strikeouts over his first 56 innings in the majors, but he'll now be sidelined until around midseason in 2015.

Dodgers placed RHP Chris Withrow on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

Withrow was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque last week, but he never reported to the team and the option has been rescinded after an MRI revealed a UCL tear. He'll undergo a second opinion, but Tommy John surgery is surely inevitable.

Chris Withrow has been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his elbow and will likely need Tommy John surgery.

Withrow hadn't pitched in eight days at Triple-A Albuquerque -- an indication that something was up. If he undergoes Tommy John surgery, the 25-year-old right-hander will be sidelined through the middle of 2015. He had a 2.95 ERA in 20 appearances with the Dodgers before they sent him to the minors on May 21.

Chris Withrow hasn't pitched in eight days due to an undisclosed injury.

Withrow was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 21 but has yet to make an appearance there. "There's some stuff going on. I don't know what they're willing to release at this point," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday. "I know medical is getting to the point where they'll release something." We'll have an answer soon.

Dodgers optioned RHP Chris Withrow to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Withrow owns a 2.95 ERA in 20 relief appearances this season, but the Dodgers had to send someone down on Wednesday to open a spot for Hyun-Jin Ryu, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Chris Withrow has left the Dodgers to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.

Withrow should be ready to return within the next couple of days. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 3.03 ERA and 38/9 K/BB ratio over 29 2/3 innings of work this season.
Thu, Sep 19, 2013 04:21:00 PM

Dodgers recalled RHP Chris Withrow from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Withrow was only in the minors for a handful of days. He has a cool 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio in 24 innings this season with Los Angeles.
Tue, Sep 3, 2013 05:13:00 PM

Chris Withrow will return to the Dodgers on Tuesday, the first day that he's eligible to do so.

Volquez was sent to Triple-A on Friday to make room for Edinson Volquez on the active roster. He's been an important piece of the Dodgers bullpen this season, compiling a 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio in his 24 innings.

Dodgers optioned RHP Chris Withrow to Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Dodgers needed to clear a roster spot with Edinson Volquez set to join the team on Friday. Withrow posted a 2-0 record, 3.38 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio over 24 frames with the Dodgers. He'll almost assuredly return when rosters expand on Sunday.
