Apr 10: Luebke (elbow) was placed on the 60-day DL on Friday, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports. He is attempting to come back from a second Tommy John surgery, and will now be out until at least late-May/early-June. The last news we had on Luebke was that he was throwing at about 50 percent intensity. Upon his activation from the disabled list, he will probably be transitioned to a relief role.

Apr 5: Luebke (elbow) was placed on the 15-day DL, retroactive to April 4, MLB.com reports. Luebke threw about 25 fastballs at about 50 percent of his normal intensity last week and will continue to ramp up his activity. Luebke is attempting to come back from his second Tommy John surgery after undergoing the procedure last February.

Mar 29: Luebke threw about 25 fastballs at about 50 percent of his normal intensity, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports. The plan for Luebke is to continue doing the same for about a month. The southpaw reported that it "felt like my old arm again," which is a good sign considering he's coming off his second Tommy John surgery. While many struggle coming back from multiple surgeries, there are also some success stories. Luebke will hope to be the next one, though he remains a ways off from returning.

Mar 16: Luebke (elbow) will start throwing off flat ground Tuesday, and could throw bullpen sessions next week, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Luebke is attempting to come back from his second Tommy John surgery after undergoing the procedure last February. The 30-year-old won't be ready to pitch in the majors by Opening Day, but if he's able to return to the mound in the next couple of weeks then he could stick around at extended spring training. He appears to be progressing well, but at this point Luebke seems likely to miss at least the first few weeks of the regular season.

Feb 19: Luebke (elbow) said Thursday that he will not be ready to pitch in major league games by Opening Day, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Luebke expects to start throwing off a mound in about a month, which wouldn't give him enough time to prepare for games by early April. He would likely stick around at extended spring training, with hopes to make his return at some point after the first few weeks of the season.
