Triston McKenzie – SP Cleveland Guardians

McKenzie has only now begun throwing a baseball, which he did on Friday. He will likely continue to throw from more considerable distances this week before attempting to do so from a mound. The team is taking things very slowly with him.

Javier Baez – SS Detroit Tigers

The issue isn’t expected to keep Baez out of the lineup for long, and he should be ready to play later today. Stay tuned.

Jose Altuve – 2B Houston Astros

Very encouraging news that the thumb is flexible and able to move around. The x-rays in two weeks will be a key factor in deciding a timeline for Altuve to come back. The decision to not have him on the 60-day IL seems like the right one as of now.

Michael Brantley – OF Houston Astros

Great news which could lead to a return to the Astros within the next two weeks. He began that rehab yesterday going 1-1 with a walk.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

McCormick will need a few more days to get himself right. The hope is that he will start hitting soon in order to avoid a rehab assignment.

MJ Melendez – C/OF Kansas City Royals

While the injury doesn’t sound too serious, it’s important to note that the team is traveling to Arizona for a series and does play today. He’s likely DTD and is a candidate to miss Monday’s game.

Logan O’Hoppe – C Los Angeles Angels

The hope is that O’Hoppe plays again this year, but four months from now is the end of August, which is the best-case scenario. There was allegedly some damage in his shoulder when it popped out last Monday, but both he and the team regret nothing that was done. For now, the team has Matt Thais and Chad Wallach to be their catchers. The Angels could either make a trade for an upgrade or push another promising prospect, Edgar Quero, to the big leagues.

Tony Gonsolin – SP Los Angeles Dodgers

This would be his 2023 debut, as Gonsolin returns from an ankle injury. He has only pitched three innings in the minors while rehabbing, and there are reports of him being capped at four innings of work here.

Yu Darvish – SP San Diego Padres

The great news is that manager Bob Melvin predicts Darvish will make his next start. He seems to have avoided anything overly serious for the moment.

Santiago Espinal – INF Toronto Blue Jays

Espinal’s wrist got hit by a pitch on Saturday, and he’s been out ever since. While it’s encouraging that the initial x-rays came back negative, the team will undergo further tests to see the extent of the damage done.
