I was in Louisville tonight as Scott Schebler started at DH in a rehab appearance. I was able to talk to him after the game. In his comments, he said he felt great, “up until that last swing, felt a little awkward. It was a the first high pitch I had to go after… five minutes after that I felt great again.”
He also said there was still “a little limitation” with throwing. And “it’s kind of a weird injury where you can push through it a little.”
Both Schebler and Manage Dick Schofield said the plan is for him to return to Cincinnati as soon as he’s comfortable enough throwing to play the field. The current plan is for him to DH again tomorrow in Louisville, but Schebler said that if he came in tomorrow and felt comfortable throwing, “I want to get back in the field as soon as possible.”
Sounds like he will most likely be back in Cincinnati in a couple of days.
