MLB Injury Report
Kyle Stowers – OF Baltimore Orioles
Kyle Stowers, still on rehab in Aberdeen, has a 5 hit night in Greensboro.
5/6, 2B, HR, 3 RBI
— The Verge- An Orioles MiLB Podcast (@BSLOnTheVerge) July 9, 2023
Stowers has been on a rehab assignment for almost two weeks, and in his four games with Aberdeen, he has done nothing but impress. Since July 4, he has gone 9-for-18 with three home runs and eight runs batted in. What’s even better is that he’s only struck out twice over this mini-stretch of games. He looks poised and ready to come up to Baltimore and display his talents.
Trevor Story – 2B Boston Red Sox
Well, that accelerated quickly. Story, who has begun throwing from up to 170 feet, looks to be ready to start a rehab assignment in the near future. As stated, the maximum time for a rehab assignment is twenty days, and one would guess that his would last as close to that as possible. If all goes well with no setbacks, we could very well see him returning at the beginning of August.
Corey Kluber – SP/RP Boston Red Sox
This seems like an encouraging step forward for Kluber, who will likely be used as a relief arm in the second half.
Garrett Crochet – RP Chicago White Sox
Garrett Crochet made an appearance in Charlotte for the #Knights tonight. He goes 1.2IP and K's 4. He allows 2H, 1BB, and had 1 HBP. His BB scored after he was out so he was charged with 1R. #WhiteSox pic.twitter.com/eEiQT246QL

Crochet has looked unstoppable in July, as indicated by the clip above. In his two appearances this month, he has struck out six of the seven batters that he’s faced while walking one. What’s even better is that the velocity of his fastball sat consistently around 98-99 miles per hour throughout his first appearance. It may not be long before we see him back with the White Sox.
Chris Taylor – OF Los Angeles Dodgers
— Bruce Kuntz (@Bnicklaus7) July 10, 2023
Taylor finished 1–for-3 in this game and now has two hits in his two rehab games thus far. He seems poised and ready to take over the spot that Miguel Vargas held on the roster once the Dodgers return from the All-Star Break.
Jonathan Davis – OF Miami Marlins
Interrupting draft updates for #Marlins roster move updates:
-RHP Sean Reynolds optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville
-RHP Johnny Cueto returned from rehab and reinstated from 60-day IL
-OF Jonathan Davis transferred to 60-day IL
— Jordan McPherson (@J_McPherson1126) July 10, 2023
Davis hurt himself while diving for a ball in the outfield last week. He tore his meniscus and has already had surgery to repair the damage. The move to the 60-day Injured List made way for the returning Johnny Cueto to come back to the Marlins.
Edward Cabrera – SP Miami Marlins
In other rehab news, Edward Cabrera's first start with Jupiter got rained out, so that pushes his timeline back a day
He's gonna need 3+ starts to get stretched out again
— Fish On First (@FishOnFirst) July 9, 2023
This is something to keep an eye on, as Cabrera did not pitch the next day, despite Jupiter playing a doubleheader. After that, the team does not have any games scheduled until this Friday, when they play two more games. There was no word on why there was a change of plans.
Tommy Pham – OF New York Mets
Per Mets: Tommy Pham underwent imaging on his groin today in New York, which came back negative.
— Will Sammon (@WillSammon) July 10, 2023
Good news for Pham and the Mets, as it would appear that he has avoided a serious injury. That said, he will be re-evaluated before the team plays this Friday in order to determine if he’s able to join them.
