“Once the doctors went through everything with Daniel, we started to get a sense that he wanted to get back,” said Gary LaRocque, director of player development for the Cardinals. “He was extremely positive about the road back, and he was making tremendous progress early. And so every time we’d make a call or get the reports, it would always suggest, ‘Hey, he’s doing well. He’s doing really well.’”
Poncedeleon resumed throwing in August. He rejoined the Memphis club, as a spectator, for its September postseason run. Later that month, Poncedeleon returned to the mound to face hitters for the first time since May.
