MLB Prospects Injury Report

Blaze Alexander – SS Arizona Diamondbacks

Alexander had started the year off right with a .458/.618/.792 slash line and hitting the ball for a ton of extra bases. He will be out for at least six weeks but is still a candidate to get the call later this season at shortstop. Alexander is the team’s 9th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Daniel Espino – P Cleveland Guardians

Espino was already on the 60-day Injured List, and this is yet another setback for the once-promising arm. His inability to remain healthy and to actually pitch may drop him in rankings as the year goes on. Espino is baseball’s 14th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Jackson Jobe – P Detroit Tigers

Jobe has slowly made his progression toward being able to throw from longer distances. He is going to be carefully and meticulously brought along, as he is expected to miss at least half of the season. As an aside, the quoted tweet does provide a ton of useful information on a ton of other prospects within the Tigers’ system. Jobe is baseball’s 56th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Sixto Sanchez – P Miami Marlins

Sanchez continues to slowly ramp his arm back up. Two days after this video clip was released, he threw two innings of an extended BP (34 pitches), though there was no word on how that went velocity-wise. Essentially for him, it’s all about how his body responds, considering the extensive injury history and the loss of body weight. Sanchez is the team’s 11th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Max Meyer – P Miami Marlins

Meyer has upgraded his throwing distance to 90 feet, but most pitchers will need to grow toward 120 feet before anything else. Until that happens, he will remain on a flat-ground throwing regimen. He is not slated to pitch at all this season. Meyer is baseball’s 60th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Sal Frelick – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Frelick was considered the top option to replace the injured Garrett Mitchell in the outfield. Unfortunately for him, he will be out for up to two months and will need to prove his worth in Triple-A upon his return. That said, if he’s able to play the way most expect, he could be up with the Brewers anytime after the All-Star Break. Frelick is baseball’s 27th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Royce Lewis – SS Minnesota Twins

What an interesting turn of events that is for Lewis, who will be focusing on third base. That could be a sneaky help to those in need in leagues in about a month’s time. Keep that in your back pocket come mid-May FAAB. Lewis is baseball’s 39th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Connor Prielipp – P Minnesota Twins

There’s a lot to like here with Prielipp, and the Twins obviously feel the same way. The last thing that they want to do is rush someone that has the potential to be huge. Prielipp is the team’s 5th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Andrew Painter – SP Philadelphia Phillies

Great news with Painter, as the team is taking things at a very slow pace. They don’t want to rush their prized prospect and risk further damage. He still needs to advance to mound work before a rehab assignment can even be considered. Painter is baseball’s 4-th ranked prospect, according to MLB.

Tink Hence – P St. Louis Cardinals

The team placed Hence on the 7-day Injured List to give him some additional rest. They were encouraged by the initial observation as well, so this was perhaps not as serious as it sounds. Hence is baseball’s 69th-ranked prospect, according to MLB.
