Michael Harris – OF Atlanta Braves

Coinciding with the report yesterday, Harris looks ready to return within the week, possibly even the weekend.

Raisel Iglesias – RP Atlanta Braves

Iglesias is getting closer to a return, but a minor-league rehab is likely necessary.

Orlando Arcia – SS Atlanta Braves

Great news with a date set in mind. There is no word on how this will affect Vaughn Grissom and his playing time. Stay tuned.

Austin Hays – OF Baltimore Orioles

Both he and the team are very fortunate that this wasn’t a long-term injury here. Consider Hays DTD until otherwise noted.

Cody Bellinger – OF Los Angeles Dodgers

Bellinger will miss a handful of games to be with his family.

Yasmani Grandal – C Chicago White Sox

Consider Grandal DTD while he works out these kinks. There’s no word on an Injury List designation, but for now, that seems unlikely.

Tim Anderson – SS Chicago White Sox

While it doesn’t seem like Anderson requires a long rehab, there’s no word yet on when that will start. Consider him out for the rest of this week, but in play for next week.

Wil Meyers – OF Cincinnati Reds

Consider Myers DTD until otherwise told.

Detroit Tigers – Team Update

Manning has had a quick recovery following a fracture in his foot. His throwing program indicates that he’s likely ready sooner than expected. Skubal had flexor-tendon surgery last year and remains a long-term health concern. He will need an extended rehab assignment before any consideration to bring him back is made.

Chas McCormick – OF Houston Astros

This was the first time since being on the Injured List that McCormick has been able to hit and field. He’s getting closer to a return, but a rehab assignment is likely.

Lance McCullers – SP Houston Astros

It is imperative to see how his body responds following this, but a bullpen session is what’s next if he’s okay. McCullers will still require a rehab assignment.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros

It was a very vague day of questions without concrete answers. Alvarez may not join the team on their respective road trip, but a lot hinges on the recommendations of the doctors. Stay tuned.

JD Martinez – DH Los Angeles Dodgers

Consider Martinez DTD until otherwise noted.

Max Muncy – 3B Los Angeles Dodgers, Brusdar Graterol – RP Los Angeles Dodgers

Both players will miss a handful of games to be with their families.

Eric Lauer – SP Milwaukee Brewers

Yikes. Consider Lauer DTD while this heals, though a trip to the Injured List isn’t out of the question.

Garrett Mitchell – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Mitchell received that second opinion, and it was the same as the first. He will be out for most, if not all, of the season. Brutal news.

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies

So far, Suarez has looked good when he’s pitched, so this comes as no surprise. Consider him ready within the month, but likely by the middle of May.

Logan Gilbert – SP Seattle Mariners

Consider Gilbert still ready to pitch, as there haven’t been rumblings of an Injury List designation. Stay tuned for when he will pitch.

Corey Seager – SS Texas Rangers

Seager took to the field for the first time since heading to the Injured List. He swung a bat and took grounders on the field. He said recently that he is keeping his arm active and ready, but also taking blood flow restriction therapy. This is done to increase growth hormones and muscle strength through oxygen restriction to tissue during exercise. No word on when he will return, but he took a major step forward by getting onto the field yesterday. How his body responds is key.
