MLB Injury Report for March 12

Kyle Wright – SP Atlanta Braves

Some fantastic news here as Kyle Wright seems to be trending toward missing no time whatsoever. He may have received a small discount in drafts because of his recent setbacks, but owners should draft with confidence in his health.

Felix Bautista – RP Baltimore Orioles

Since news broke about Bautista’s ailments, he has done nothing but pass every test to prove his health. His debut next week lines him to miss minimal time during the season, if any at all.

Justin Turner – 3B Boston Red Sox

After taking a scary hit to the face earlier in the week, this is such a positive step forward.

Yordan Alvarez – OF Houston Astros

If the team is saying that’s in the plan, then anyone drafting him should feel confident with him in the first round. After having no issues with the soft-tossed hitting, he needs to progress to real-speed pitching. That said, things are looking up for Yordan.

Garrett Mitchell – OF Milwaukee Brewers

Encouraging news to see a timeline in place for Mitchell’s return. Fantasy owners everywhere can mark that on their collective calendars.

Jose Miranda – 1B/3B Minnesota Twins, Nick Gordon – 2B/OF Minnesota Twins

Both players took positive steps in the right direction yesterday as they both aim to be ready for Opening Day. While it’s unclear if Gordon will be ready to play, Miranda may slot into the DH-role as he has been doing this spring.

Alex Kirilloff – 1B Minnesota Twins

Disappointing news as the setback wasn’t part of the plan. The wrist surgery was intended to permanently fix the problem and Kirilloff himself had been doing so well with that. The fact that it’s a tolerance-based setback is somewhat encouraging in that he may be able to adjust.

Drew Pomeranz – RP San Diego Padres

Great news on Pomeranz’s development here. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him play, but he’s been nothing but solid when he pitches.

Alex Cobb – SP San Francisco Giants

After taking a line drive off of his knee, there was fear of missing significant time with a much more serious injury. Luckily it looks to be nothing more than a bruise. There will be updates, but the news out of the gate is good nonetheless.

David Villar – 3B San Francisco Giants

The hope is that it is only minor tightness and nothing significant. More updates to follow in the coming days, but for now, it is considered minor.

Mitch Haniger – OF San Francisco Giants

Oblique injuries can be tricky to overcome. Grade 1 strains take approximately four weeks from which to heal, though everyone is different. This obviously puts his Opening Day status in jeopardy. Luckily the team loves to add additional eligibility to its players and will likely be fine for the short term while Haniger gets himself ready.

Jordan Walker – 3B/OF St. Louis Cardinals

The fact that the team isn’t overly concerned is a good thing, though one can never be too careful. In fact, the Cardinals manager seemed more concerned that Walker used a head-first slide in the wrong situation. There will be more updates in the upcoming days as the team will want to be extra cautious with their prized possession.

Tyler Glasnow – SP Tampa Bay Rays

The team will try to get him in a better state mentally, but for now, he’s resting without doing much at all. Once he begins throwing, that will be when fantasy owners can start projecting his return to their lineup.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 1B Toronto Blue Jays

The logical next step in his progression back to baseball. The Blue Jays are wisely taking things slowly to ensure that every precaution can be avoided.
