T.J. House tossed four innings of scoreless ball in the Indians' win over the Mariners on Sunday.

It was a nice recovery outing four House, who got worked for four earned runs in 1 2/3 innings last week against the Padres. The left-hander missed most of the 2015 season with shoulder troubles and isn't a real fit right right now for the Indians' roster, but he'll likely see action in the majors at some point in 2016.
Mar 20 - 6:48 PM

Indians activated LHP T.J. House from the 60-day disabled list.

He's now back on the 40-man roster. House missed most of 2015 with shoulder issues but has been pitching in the Arizona Fall League and should enter spring training without limitations, provided he doesn't have a setback.

T.J. House (shoulder) tossed a perfect inning in his first Arizona Fall League appearance last Thursday.

House missed most of the season with shoulder issues and there was some worry that he might need to have surgery, but that he's participating in the AFL obviously means he's opted for the non-surgical route. The left-hander entered 2015 with plenty of appeal, but he'll need to show he's healthy and even then seems likely to begin 2016 in the minors.

T.J. House could undergo surgery on his left shoulder over the winter.

House has been sidelined since June 5 with a nagging shoulder issue. It's unclear at this point what kind of operation he might require or if it could potentially affect his availability for the start of next season.

Indians transferred LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It frees up a 40-man roster spot. House is done for the season with a shoulder injury.

Indians rescinded the option of LHP T.J. House, placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 1 with left shoulder inflammation.

By rescinding the option, the Indians will maintain an additional year of team control over House, who will still have one option year remaining. He has still yet to resume a throwing program.

T.J. House (shoulder) has yet to resume a throwing program.

House has spent much of the season battling a shoulder issue and only recently began rehabbing the injury at the Indians' spring training complex. Obviously, he's a poor bet to contribute anything the rest of the season.
Wed, Aug 12, 2015 09:04:00 AM

T.J. House (shoulder) will be shut down for two weeks before resuming a throwing program.

A second opinion confirmed that House is dealing with tendinitis in his left shoulder. The southpaw hasn't appeared in a game in a month and it sounds like it will be a while before he's ready for game action again.
Sun, Jul 5, 2015 09:16:00 AM

Indians activated LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

This means that Shaun Marcum will keep the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation for now. House tossed eight scoreless innings with a 9/1 K/BB ratio over two minor league rehab starts, but the Indians apparently want to see more sustained success before giving him another shot.

T.J. House (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday with Low-A Lake County.

House looked good in a bullpen session Wednesday and is now ready for the next step in his rehabilitation from left shoulder inflammation. The left-hander was pitching terribly before he landed on the disabled list and could be asked to make several rehab starts.
Wed, May 13, 2015 04:04:00 PM

T.J. House (shoulder) threw a side session Wednesday.

Assuming he bounces back OK, Indians manager Terry Francona said the next step could be a three-inning rehab start. House landed on the DL at the end of April with left shoulder inflammation and will have to prove his health and effectiveness to get back his rotation spot.
Tue, May 12, 2015 03:34:00 PM

T.J. House (shoulder) is slated to play long-toss on Sunday.

House was placed on the disabled list just over a week ago with left shoulder inflammation, but he's already feeling much better. He'll be brought along slowly and isn't guaranteed a spot in the rotation once deemed healthy.
Sun, May 10, 2015 10:55:00 AM

Indians placed LHP T.J. House on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation.

The ailment helps explain House's drop in velocity and results in the early going this season. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it appears he at least doesn't have any structural issues with the shoulder. Zach McAllister, Bruce Chen and Shaun Marcum are options to take his spot in the rotation.
Fri, May 1, 2015 02:36:00 PM

T.J. House dropped to 0-4 after giving up five runs in three-plus innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

House got nine groundouts from 11 hitters over the first three innings, only to give up a walk, two singles and two doubles to start the fourth. He was then yanked and replaced by Ryan Webb. Maybe with a lucky break in the fourth, this one could have gone a lot differently. However, since House is sporting a 13.15 ERA, he has to be on the verge of losing his rotation spot, probably to either Bruce Chen or Zach McAllister.
