Injury Update On Boston Red Sox Top Pitching Prospect

He was shut down earlier this month.

Boston Red Sox starter Brayan Bello threw a bullpen session Sunday with no issues.

It was the first time Bello had thrown off a mound since reports of right forearm tightness at the beginning of spring camp.

The talented young starter reportedly threw 20 pitches and looked good afterward.

The Red Sox will likely continue to be cautious with their top pitching prospect during camp but, for now, it looks like he avoided a serious injury. 

The twenty-three-year-old had a rocky start to his major-league career last season, compiling a 4.71 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, with 55 strikeouts across 57.1 innings and 13 appearances. He also held an ugly 2-8 record.

Regardless, Bello is a very promising-looking pitcher with electric stuff and should have a bright future ahead of him.

Last year, at the minor-league level, Bello recorded a sparkling 2.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, with 129 strikeouts over 96 innings and 18 starts, while holding a 10-4 record.

Hopefully, he'll be ready to go for the start of the season.
