Raisel Iglesias – RP Atlanta Braves

There’s no timetable for his return, as the team seems to take things slowly with him. Iglesias still needs to face live batters and will probably require a rehab assignment. He’s about one to two weeks away from returning.

Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

Harris has been sidelined for a while and still can’t swing a bat against pitchers. He has now been away for 15 days and it’s unclear when he will be ready.

Travis d’Arnaud – C Atlanta Braves

Great to see that d’Arnaud has advanced to doing this, as he was a bit behind his original projection. No word on when he’ll rejoin the team, but he’s taken the first step toward a full recovery.

Jorge Mateo – SS Baltimore Orioles

Mateo didn’t play last night but looks ready to do so on Saturday. Be prepared.

Kyle Hendricks – SP Chicago Cubs

From this piece, the Cubs had a well-thought-out plan regarding how they wanted to handle Hendricks this off-season. The team had been changing and altering his arm path for a shorter and more efficient delivery. They want his velocity to get back to 90+ mph because that’s where he was at his best. His velocity will be something to keep an eye on.

James Taillon – SP Chicago Cubs

It’s good news that Taillon is already playing catch, even if it is light.

Liam Hendriks – RP Chicago Cubs

Fantastic news, as he looks to be back on the right side of things. Wishing him all the best. As for the baseball side of life, he will likely ramp up in the near future.

Randal Grichuk – OF Colorado Rockies

Grichuk is batting .167 with three walks and three strikeouts thus far in his rehab outing. That said, he could be back up soon and ready for next week.

Kris Bubic – SP Kansas City Royals

Terrible news, as any changes that were made will be gone for the next two years. Bubic will miss the rest of this season and part of the next.

Franmil Reyes – UT Kansas City Royals

Reyes will miss some time from baseball while he is with his family. Congratulations to them all.

Logan O’Hoppe – C Los Angeles Dodgers

There is no word yet on the severity of the injury, but he will need at least ten days to get himself right. Chances are that he is gone for longer than the minimum.

Michael Grove – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

The injury isn’t considered serious, but warranted time away to be corrected. There has yet to be the word on who replaces him in the rotation.

Trevor Rogers – SP Miami Marlins

Rogers underwent imaging and tests to reveal the strain after being pulled from his last start. He will likely be away for longer than the 15-day minimum and require a rehab assignment.

Garrett Mitchell – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Joey Wiemer will get an extensive look with the team in the outfield. Star prospect Sal Frelick is a dark horse consideration to take over, but he’s currently injured in the minors. The official word will take place next week when he gets checked out.

Alex Kirilloff – 1B Minnesota Twins

An interesting twist here, as the team may keep Kirilloff in the minors for a while even when he’s healthy. While this hasn’t been made official, it makes sense given the team’s structure.

Kenta Maeda – SP Minnesota Twins

Great news that Maeda is feeling better, but it’s obvious that he’s nowhere near 100% better. The team has Bailey Ober waiting in the minors, and he seems qualified to take over if need be.

Harrison Bader – OF New York Yankees

At least there’s a more definitive timetable for Bader’s return. That said, anything can happen before then.

Josh Donaldson – 3B New York Yankees

Donaldson’s recovery has taken extra long, and his return will be that much longer.

Bryce Harper – UT Philadelphia Phillies

It would be a medical marvel for this to happen and truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Harper will get the word early in May as to whether or not he can actually do this. As a DH, he wouldn’t need to throw or catch, only run and dive. That last part could be tricky, but he’s been working on that too. It can’t be understated how incredible and risky this is all at the same time.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

It looks as if the plan is in place for Munoz, who could be back with the team within the next ten days. He has been doing well when throwing, but the big test will come when he pitches in a rehab outing.

Adam Wainwright – St. Louis Cardinals

Slowly but surely, Wainwright is working his way back to the big league club.

Jacob deGrom – SP Texas Rangers

It’s looking like all systems are a go for deGrom and the Rangers this Sunday.
