Fantrax Injury Report for April 10,2023: Updates on Glasnow and Fried

Here is the Fantrax Injury Report for Monday, April 10, 2023.

Your league didn’t use Fantrax this season? Preposterous! Check out all that Fantrax has to offer and we think your entire league will make a change for next season.

MLB Injury Update

Mark Melancon – RP Arizona Diamondbacks, Zach Davies – RP Arizona Diamondbacks

The move of Melancon helped the team add another player to the team by freeing up a roster spot. As for Davies, his injury will pave the way for Drey Jameson, who will take over in the rotation after a solid start to the season in the bullpen. He is worth an add wherever possible to see if he can continue his run.

Max Fried – SP Atlanta Braves

Fried’s move into mound work will show a huge development in his progression back. Until then, he remains in some sort of purgatory mode where he’s waiting for his hamstring to heal. The longer he remains out, the longer the rehab assignment. Fried has been hurt since Opening Day.

Kyle Bradish – SP Baltimore Orioles

Bradish continues to progress towards recovery by next week. All signs seem to point to him back as soon as he’s eligible.

John Means – SP Baltimore Orioles

Now that Means is throwing all of his pitches, he’s ready to ramp himself up toward a higher total. Still, the ETA remains mid-July if all goes well.

Adam Duvall – OF Boston Red Sox

Duvall was unable to make a catch in the outfield and immediately grabbed on his wrist. This is the same wrist that gave him problems last year. With x-rays planned today, there will be updates. Bobby Dalbec has already traveled to Tampa Bay in case he’s needed.

Daniel Bard – RP Colorado Rockies

The noted decrease in velocity is important here, as it shows he may not quite be where he was last year. Additionally, we don’t know how those pitches actually looked. He has yet to face live batters, so his absence will likely be a lengthy one.

Michael Brantley – OF Houston Astros

The timeline for Brantley’s return was hopeful for Opening Day, to hopeful mid-April and now we’re looking at the beginning of May. The concerning part here too is that he hasn’t had any setbacks. Perhaps it’s his older age limiting his return and recovery speed. He still will need a rehab assignment before coming back.

Jared Walsh – 1B Los Angeles Angels

Progress is good, as he’s been taking swings with the team’s Triple-A affiliate. That said, as noted, he will need a lengthy ramp-up to be ready. Consider sometime in May to be a best-case scenario.

Avisail Garcia – OF Miami Marlins

Consider him DTD until we get more clarity on the situation.

Joey Gallo – 1B/OF Minnesota Twins

Gallo’s confidence is backed by the same optimism from the team. There was nothing in the MRI that showed significant damage. He’s DTD for now, but for how long remains the question.

Starling Marte – OF New York Mets

Marte suffered this after a collision with Jean Segura while trying to steal third base. More updates should be provided before lineups lock later today.

Seth Brown – 1B/OF Oakland Athletics

Look for Kevin Smith and Ryan Noda to play in his absence. It’s unclear who will get more playing time.

Oneil Cruz – SS Pittsburgh Pirates

Awful news for the team and for fantasy owners. This injury will likely cause the superstar to miss most of the regular season while recovering. In fact, if the team struggles and is out of contention, they could keep him out for longer if they’re worried about re-injury. There will surely be more updates later today, but for now, consider him out for months. Rodolfo Castro seems the likeliest of players to take over at shortstop.

J.T. Brubaker – SP Pittsburgh Pirates

The team has been fearing Tommy John Surgery, but that appears to be off the table for now. Stay tuned.

Andres Munoz – RP Seattle Mariners

Munoz hasn’t been bouncing back from his appearances and will need what’s being called a “short break” to help. It’s unclear if these fifteen days will be enough of a breather to get Munoz to where he needs to be. He did have a short spring, so there’s that too.

Paul DeJong – SS St. Louis Cardinals

DeJong will continue to get better, now against the team’s Triple-A affiliate. This is more about him getting time to play in the field and get his body back into game shape.

Adam Wainwright – SP St. Louis Cardinals, Lars Nootbar – OF St. Louis Cardinals

The team continues to take things slowly with Wainwright, but his journey back to the team may be at its end soon. As for Nootbar, it’s disappointing that he may not play in Colorado, but the long-term goal is his health.

Tyler Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays

While it’s encouraging that Glasnow is throwing, he has to evolve onto the mound and throw those bullpens. It would be then that we can start considering a return date.

Taylor Walls – SS Tampa Bay Rays

There will likely be updates after these tests are done. Stay tuned.
