    Tepera (elbow) will resume throwing Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Impact

    Tepera has been sidelined recently due to elbow inflammation. Fortunately, a second opinion confirmed the right-hander won't require surgery to address the issue. Tepera is still expected to open the season on the injured list, though it could be a brief stay if he's able to progress with no setbacks.

    News

    Tepera is dealing with elbow inflammation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Impact

    Tepera will visit a second doctor Saturday, at which point a clearer picture of his return timeline should emerge. With the injury occurring just a week before Opening Day, he's expected to open the season on the injured list.

    News

    Tepera experienced elbow pain following his most recent Grapefruit League outing and will be examined by doctors Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Impact

    Manager Charlie Montoyo also said John Axford (elbow) will be examined Wednesday, leaving the status of two key relievers uncertain with Opening Day just over a week away. Tepera had a brief run as the Blue Jays' closer last season and picked up seven saves across 64.2 innings, but he'll be ticketed for a setup role in 2019 with Ken Giles entrenched as the team's clear ninth-inning man.

    News

    Tepera walked one in a scoreless inning of relief during Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies.

    Impact

    The right-hander has gone about his business this spring, posting a 5:3 K:BB through six innings. Tepera has fairly quietly racked up 37 holds over the last two seasons, and he should be a reliable contributor in that category again in 2019 as one of Ken Giles' primary setup men.
