MLB Injury Report

Ozzie Albies – 2B Atlanta Braves

Albies will miss the next 10 days or so with a hamstring strain. It’s unclear as to what the severity of the injury is, but it’s apparently enough to warrant some time off. Look for Vaughn Grissom to be called up later today, though Nicky Lopez, who has played well, could see additional at-bats as well.

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

This is great news, as Wright has been slow to recover from his ailing shoulder. He last pitched on May 3, and there haven’t been many updates regarding his recovery. Snitker was also asked if Wright may come back as a reliever, given the nature and timing of his injury. His response was that they are concerned about just getting him back and not the role that he would have.

Cal Quantrill – SP Cleveland Guardians

This will be Quantrill’s first rehab start since last week’s 1.1 inning disaster where he gave up six earned runs. While he performed poorly on the score sheet, it is important to note that the velocity readings were encouraging. This may be his final outing before returning.

Jurickson Profar – OF Colorado Rockies

This can be considered good news, as no MRI likely means less concern over long-term damage. Consider Profar DTD until we’re told otherwise.

Kris Bryant – OF Colorado Rockies

Bryant’s fractured finger continues to stay the same way as it was and hasn’t healed the way that it should. With him being shut down for two more weeks, we’re bordering on him being shut down for the season, given the ramp-up that will be needed once he’s ready to resume baseball activities.

C.J. Cron – 1B Los Angeles Angels

There was no real update on Cron, other than he didn’t start last night’s game. He’s been dealing with back issues all season long.

Mike Trout – OF Los Angeles Angels

Trout doesn’t seem to be any better than the last report, but he’s not doing any worse. He’s at least remaining constant with where he is in his recovery process.

Edwin Diaz – RP New York Mets

Diaz has always said that he would aim for a late-September return, and this confirms that he is working toward that. While a lot needs to happen before he does in fact pitch again, it’s encouraging that he could be back on the mound soon enough. Mets’ GM Billy Eppler did say though that they are focused on the process rather than the results. With the Mets seemingly out of the playoff hunt, look for them to be very cautious with him.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

Marte’s decline in production this year is likely due to last season’s groin surgery. It remains to be seen if he will return at all this year and what the plan is this offseason to correct the issue.

Brandon Nimmo – OF New York Mets

Nimmo will likely start to play more in left field as opposed to center field to help ease him back to gameplay. He will also likely miss some time going forward, making him not an everyday player for the near future.

Anthony Rizzo – 1B New York Yankees

It’s been a very frustrating year for Rizzo and his fantasy owners. He has said that he is close to resuming baseball activities, so stay tuned for that. The hope is that these tests will determine the root of his problem and how to solve it.

Mason Miller – SP Oakland Athletics, Ryan Noda – 1B Oakland Athletics

There is no word on how long either player will be in rehab, but it’s good news for both and especially for Miller. The team has been extra cautious with him and should monitor his progress slowly. There is no need to rush someone who is arguably their best pitcher and prospect.

Wilmer Flores – INF San Francisco Giants

Consider Flores DTD while he recovers from this ear infection.

Mike Yastrzemski – OF San Francisco Giants

Yastrzemski was close to returning, but he will miss at least a week with this setback. He injured himself while running the bases and will need more time before returning to the Giants. Stay tuned.

Bryan Woo – SP Seattle Mariners

Woo is already throwing, despite being placed on the Injured List last week. He is looking likely to return when first eligible on August 20, but anything is possible.

Willson Contreras – C St. Louis Cardinals

Contreras hurt himself while running the bases. He may go for testing to determine the severity of the situation. Consider him DTD until we know more.

Nolan Gorman – INF St. Louis Cardinals

Consider Gorman DTD while the team figures out the severity of his back issue.

Steven Matz – SP St. Louis Cardinals

Matz may miss the rest of the season due to this lat strain. These sorts of injuries usually mean much more than the fifteen-day minimum for Injured List trips.
