MLB Injury Report

Anthony Santander – OF Baltimore Orioles

There weren’t any updates after the game as to why this happened, so stay tuned for that.

Aaron Hicks – OF Baltimore Orioles

Hicks has played in just one game since July 25, and it’s looking like a second Injury List designation is on the horizon. His inability to swing and hit makes him quite unusable and a clogged-up roster spot at that.

Eloy Jiménez – OF Chicago White Sox

Jimenez has been battling through a groin injury and will now miss the weekend to welcome the birth of his child. The Jimenez family is wished the best.

José Abreu – 1B Houston Astros

The fact that Abreu has yet to swing a bat is concerning. It either shows how serious the injury really is or how much he’s fought through for a while. Either way, there’s a minimal chance that he’s activated this weekend. In fact, it may be September until we see him back and playing with the Astros.

Kyle Tucker – OF Houston Astros

Consider Tucker DTD while he recovers from this illness.

Maikel Garcia – INF Kansas City Royals

Garcia missed a game last weekend with upper body soreness and now missed some of last night’s game. There were no updates after the game, but today should provide us with clarity.

Mike Trout – OF Los Angeles Angels

Interesting development here. There doesn’t look to be any consideration for a rehab assignment, so the team may activate him shortly. The Angles play a doubleheader today, so perhaps early next week?

Anthony Rendon – 3B Los Angeles Angels, C.J. Cron – 1B Los Angeles Angels

The Angels were busy yesterday, activating and deactivating a lot of players for different reasons. Rendon’s move to the 60-day Injured List means that he is unable to return until at least September 9. Given his injury history, there’s no guarantee that he returns at all this season. As for Cron, his back continues to be a problem for him. He will miss at least ten days with the same injury that cost him much more when he was with the Rockies.

Rowdy Tellez – 1B Milwaukee Brewers

The team had said recently that they wanted Tellez to get going at the plate before activating him. Over his last three games, he has gone 5-for-13 with one home run and five runs batted in. Look for him to take over at first base and try to build on his early-season success.

Matt Wallner – OF Minnesota Twins

Wallner got hit by a pitch when he swung at it and it hit him. The team jokingly said that his hands are made of cement, and after having seen the replay, they may not be far off. Consider him DTD for now.

Joe Ryan – SP Minnesota Twins

Ryan dominated in this outing and could be back soon. He threw 71 pitches and may not need another start to prove he’s ready to return.

Ryan Jeffers – C Minnesota Twins

Consider Jeffers DTD for now.

Carlos Rodón – SP New York Yankees

Be prepared.

Ranger Suarez – SP Philadelphia Phillies

This pushed-back start could make him a two-start pitcher next week.

Bo Bichette – SS Toronto Blue Jays

Be prepared.
