Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

This makes Harris a very tough decision with lineups set to be locked on Monday. For those in daily leagues, it’s likely just delaying the inevitable.

Travis d’Arnaud – C Atlanta Braves

Today would have been d’Arnaud’s seventh day on the Injured List, but it’s looking like his return will be much longer than anticipated.

Ramon Urias – INF Baltimore Orioles

Urias went into concussion protocol and will likely be DTD until we are otherwise told.

Joey Votto – 1B Cincinnati Reds

With his twenty-day window about to expire, the Reds pulled away Votto from his rehab. This was strategically done to give him more time to ramp up. He has struggled to the tune of a .182 batting average in this rehab and the team wants him to get himself right.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

McCormick has had blurred vision for a couple of days and will need another one to get himself right.

Will Smith – C Los Angeles Dodgers

Stay tuned as there could be more to this story than we first thought.

Luis Arraez – INF Miami Marlins

Even when he is hurting, he still manages to get on base. That being said, it will be interesting to see if this lingers or not.

Brandon Woodruff – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Just awful news, though he won’t require surgery. The timeline for him is to come back home, get examined, and then hopefully ramp up and get to rehab. These were the words from manager Craig Counsell, who seemed hopeful but not certain. A lot of unknowns at this point. The team feels that a little more than ten days off is what’s needed now. It’s a muscle strain, though this sub-cap strain is of the tricky variety. Adrian Houser was mentioned as a possibility to be stretched out, but nothing definitive there. Woodruff himself mentioned that had this happened later in the season (post-ASB), he might be shut down. He also said that he will not rush a comeback and will listen to his body. Keeping that in mind for a timeline, considering him month-to-month is a safe projection.

Joey Gallo – 1B Minnesota Twins

Great news. Be prepared.

Max Scherzer – SP New York Mets

That’s a long pushback of three days, and something really doesn’t seem right about this. That said, Scherzer is slated to pitch on Wednesday, so we shall see what happens. Stay tuned.

Justin Verlander – SP New York Mets

This was the first time since getting hurt and will be the first of a few. It’s unclear when the next steps that were mentioned will take place. The closer those steps begin, the quicker we can get to a rehab game.

Bryce Harper – UT Philadelphia Phillies

Harper continues to exceed expectations here by ramping up his workload. He’s been taking grounders, switching positions, and now wants to skip any rehab assignment. While it’s all very admirable, it’s also hopeful that he is not accelerating any possible re-injury or new injury as well. All that being said, things are looking good for Harper. Assuming there are no setbacks, he should be back this summer.

Joe Musgrove – SP San Diego Padres

Assuming no setbacks, Musgrove might rejoin the team next week. Stay tuned.

Joc Pederson – OF San Francisco Giants

The Giants are a hot mess right now, as the cortisone shot wasn’t enough to keep Pederson healthy.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

Munoz is attempting to return to the Mariners’ bullpen after a brief spring. He’s hoping to return sooner rather than later.

Jon Gray – SP Texas Rangers

What an incredible turn of events. Gray goes from thinking it’s broken to being ready to go whenever needed. The good news is that he’s okay.

Jordan Romano – RP Toronto Blue Jays

Romano took a liner off of the ribs and was in pain on Saturday. The good news is that it’s just a bruise, though he’ll likely miss a game or two to be safe.
