September 29, 2021
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Overton (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing in early-to-mid November, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Overton was shuttered for the season on Tuesday after being diagnosed with a right shoulder strain, but after taking the next month or so to rest up and recover, he should be in store for a relatively normal offseason. In nine big-league appearances (three starts) between Toronto and Pittsburgh this season, Overton submitted a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 15.1 innings.
