News: Perkins said he is fully recovered from the left forearm injury that caused him to miss the final two weeks of the 2014 season, MLB.com reports.
Impact: Perkins resumed throwing in mid-December, and he recently said that he will be ready for the beginning of spring training. His situation is still worth keeping an eye on throughout February and March, just in case something crops up when he ramps up his throwing regimen.

News: Perkins, who missed the final week of last season with a left forearm strain and secondary nerve irritation in his elbow, has started playing catch up to 120 feet. "I'm good, no issues," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "My arm has felt really good and, being in Florida the last three weeks, playing catch down there instead of playing catch up here has made a huge difference."
Impact: Perkins underwent multiple MRIs that show no structural damage. While it's encouraging he's reporting no problems, we'll still want to see how he fares when he starts throwing off a mound in spring training just to be sure he's healthy.
