Matt Reynolds has been sidelined by a sore right oblique.
Reynolds missed throwing a batting practice session Wednesday due to the ailment. It's another setback for the southpaw, who's still recovering from Tommy John surgery in September 2013. Reynolds' elbow isn't giving him problems, though, and he said he expects to be back on the mound sooner than later. The 30-year-old has a shot at winning a bullpen job with the D'backs if he can stay healthy. Mar 4 - 8:49 PM

Reynolds didn't quite make it back to the majors from Tommy John surgery this season, but he should be part of the club's bullpen next year. The lefty posted a 1.98 ERA over 30 appearances in 2013 in his lone season with the D'Backs.

Matt Reynolds (elbow) threw Monday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last September.

Diamondbacks and LHP Matt Reynolds avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $550,000 contract with a $600,000 club option for 2015.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic passed along the contract details. Reynolds posted a 1.98 ERA in 30 appearances this season prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery last month. He might not pitch again until 2015, but the Diamondbacks have at least secured some cost certainty. The 29-year-old is under team control through 2016.

Matt Reynolds (elbow) felt renewed pain during Thursday's side session and will visit a doctor to get checked out again.

Reynolds had recently hoped to return before the end of the 2013 season, but this setback should completely rule out that possibility. He's been sidelined since June 9 with a slight tear in his UCL.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 07:13:00 PM

Matt Reynolds (elbow) could return to the Diamondbacks before the end of the 2013 season.

Reynolds is currently shelved with a slight tear in his UCL and was initially expected to miss the remainder of the season. The team won't rush him back into action, but he's already thrown a handful of bullpen sessions and could be cleared to return in late September.

Diamondbacks transferred LHP Matt Reynolds from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Chris Owings. Reynolds has already missed nearly two months with a slight UCL tear, so this doesn't affect his timetable. It's possible he'll return late in the year, but it's more likely that he'll be out until spring training.

Matt Reynolds (elbow) has been throwing from a distance of 100 feet.

It's not clear when Reynolds will be ready for mound work, but the Diamondbacks remain hopeful that he can return late in the season. He's been out since June 10 with a slight tear in the ulnar collateral ligament of his left elbow.
