Brandon Finnegan (shoulders) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.
Finnegan underwent surgery on his non-throwing shoulder in July, and he was also bothered last year by a shoulder strain in his left arm that didn't require surgery but did limit him to 13 major league innings. The 24-year-old southpaw pitched relatively well in 2016 with a 3.98 ERA and 145 strikeouts in 172 innings. If he's fully recovered, he should be in the middle of the Cincinnati rotation for the 2018 season. Feb 14 - 6:26 PM

Brandon Finnegan feels "completely healed" in both of his shoulders ahead of the 2018 season.

"I've got more rotation in my right shoulder than I had before I got hurt. That's a good thing. I'll start working out in November and throwing in December. I'll keep up with my running, and that's it," Finnegan said. The left-hander didn't pitch after June 26, and he'd be a welcome addition to the Reds' rotation or bullpen if he truly is ready to go this spring.

Brandon Finnegan underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right (non-throwing) shoulder.

Finnegan suffered the injury during a fall away from the field. The southpaw has had some awful luck recently, as he recently aggravated his left trapezius muscle in his first start back from the DL on June 26. He's on the 60-day disabled list, which means he isn't eligible to return until late August. It's basically a lost year for him.

Brandon Finnegan (shoulder) will be placed back on the disabled list.

Finnegan re-injured himself on Monday while making his first start since mid-April. The Reds initially said is was a left triceps strain, but now they say he's dealing with another shoulder injury that's in a different spot that his first ailment. He's sidelined indefinitely and it's beginning to look like a lost season for the southpaw.

Brandon Finnegan exited Monday's start against the Cardinals with a left triceps strain.

Finnegan was making his first start back from the disabled list after missing 10 weeks with a strained trapezius muscle. It's unclear at this point how serious of an injury it might be, but obviously it's discouraging news. The Reds should have more on his status after the game.

Brandon Finnegan was lifted from Monday's start versus the Cardinals with an apparent injury.

Making his first start for the Reds since mid-April, Finnegan grimaced while delivering an offering to the leadoff hitter in the bottom of the fourth inning. After a talk with the trainer and manager Bryan Price, Finnegan walked off the field without throwing a warm-up pitch. Cincy should have an update on the lefty soon. Finnegan struggled before being pulled, allowing three runs on three hits and four walks over three-plus frames.
